Hacker-in-Residence (HIR) program at Room 77
Room 77 is offering free office space in downtown Mountain View to exceptional hackers who are working on their personal projects or early-stage startup ideas. All we're asking in return is that you spend a few hours a week contributing to an open-source project sponsored by Room 77, that may benefit the startup community as well as your own project.
- Your own desk in our downtown Mountain View office (located at 888 Villa Street, one block from Caltrain station)
- High-speed Internet access and a phone
- Free lunch every day with the rest of the team (and snacks!)
- An invitation to all of our happy hours, holiday parties and office outings
- Access to our technology infrastructure that can help speed up development of your own project
- Mentorship from a team of seasoned engineers and business leaders, who can provide feedback and resources and help your future startup career
And in return, we ask for:
- Several hours per week contributing to an open-source project at Room 77. Some of these projects grew out of years of development since our early startup days and can be reused for other startups, including yours. Examples include:
- A lightweight C++ build system suitable for startups
- A suite of base libraries handling memory management, data serialization, cross-platform RPC communication and string manipulation
- Production infrastructure and automation
You are welcome to propose other projects as well. Each HIR appointment lasts 6 months with a possibility to renew at the end.
- You are an exceptional hacker / coder who can work independently
- You do NOT hold a full-time job anywhere else
- You promise not to H@Ck into our systems
- You enjoy working with other great hackers
- You actively use the space as your primary office
