Teach At Hacker Lab!

Hacker Lab accepts proposals for classes and teachers on an ongoing basis.  Below is an overview of what we’re looking for and how to propose a class.


Are you an engaging person with an expertise in making, code, design, or business? We are looking for talented individuals who are passionate about sharing their unique skills and abilities with our community. If so, we want to hear from you!

What we're looking  for: We are specifically looking for individuals who are familiar with and can teach Standard and Project classes in two or more of the following areas:


Ideal teachers have the following skills:



Hacker Lab pays teachers on a Tier structure:

Standard level classes - This class tier is designed for introductory level content. They are typically less than 2 hours long and cover equipment safety and basic usage to allow the member equipment access. In addition to equipment training there introductory technology and business classes can be structured as “feeder” classes into the projects and bootcamp tiers. Standard level classes pay at a rate of $25 per hour of class time.

Project Classes & Bootcamps - Project classes and bootcamps allow for deeper dives into subject matter to incite new possibilities and walk through advanced processes. For maker classes they often will have materials associated with them. Many of our longer form programming and business bootcamps fall into this category as well. Any class over 3 hours and $99 will fall into this category.

Hacker Lab instructors get their first month's Hacker Lab membership for free, and continue to earn a free membership when teaching at least two classes per month, or over 6 hours.

Hacker Lab instructors work as 1099-contractors.
