We’re a small, tight-knit team of undergrads across English, statistics, cognitive science, business, linguistics,
economics, and other majors — of course, including computer science and data science — and we’d love to have you join us
Our teams span a wide breadth of responsibilities, so we need a diverse range of skillsets across many disciplines. No matter where your passions and interests lie, there's always a place for you on the Cal Hacks team!
Come chat with our directors and get your questions answered — we'll have swag to give!
Spend some time with our directors at our Calapalooza booth! RSVP here.
Starting Up at Berkeley
Get an overview of startup orgs at Berkeley, as well as other pathways into startups. Meet some of our directors who have pipelined into the VC world from Cal Hacks!
We'll be hosting an infosession to explain our initiatives, go through our recruitment/interview processes, and answer your questions.
Meet & Eat w/ Directors
Join us for a night of free food, fun, swag, and getting to know the club a little better. You’ll be able to meet the directors in a casual setting and learn about their experience in Cal Hacks!
Be sure to get your applications in by 11:59pm! Apply here.
Interviews & Coffee Chats
We make the world's largest collegiate hackathon happen, and we thrive by fostering a tightly-knit community.
Put simply, a hackathon is a chance to build whatever you want. Have an idea? Cal Hacks is the place to make it a reality, whether it’s through coding, art, design, hardware, or something we haven’t thought of yet.
Nope—all majors/backgrounds are welcome. Our current director team spans across computer science, cognitive science, data science, English, statistics, linguistics, economics, business, and other majors, and we’re more than happy to grow this list.
Cal Hacks directors all operate with a ton of autonomy, so it’s a perfect opportunity to further your leadership skills! We also have a ton of cool director swag & socials throughout the semester :)
Nope! Especially during COVID, we understand that not a lot of people have experiences attending events like Cal Hacks, so we’re open to everyone who is passionate about building the future of hackathons. Having attended or organized events is still a plus, but never a requirement.
Cal Hacks 10.0 will be fully in-person this fall!
We run experimental initiatives like Cubstart and more during the spring.
You’ll likely be spending 4-6 hours a week on Cal Hacks related work, including our weekly team-wide meeting. But our team is very close and spends a lot of time studying or socializing together as well!
Feel free to email [email protected] and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible! You can also chat with our directors through our virtual/in-person tabling events and infosessions.
