Hack Reactor San Jose
Galvanize is launching a new Hack Reactor program in-person in downtown San Jose. An "all hands" SEIR is needed to support program launch and to shepherd the inaugural class beginning June 29. This is a fun opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a program launch and work with a small team/cohort. The first cohort won't have any seniors, so you'll be the role model for what's in store for them after graduating.

Galvanize provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment. Qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender perception or identity, national origin, age, marital status, protected veteran status, or disability.
