Join the Madhacks Team

Unlike other hackathons, MadHacks puts the emphasis on the wacky, the original, and the downright impossible! Like the mad geniuses, tinkerers, makers, and designers preceding us, we test our boundaries like never before! We’re reaching out to the highly dedicated risk-takers, the envelope pushers, and the daredevils.

Team Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is a hackathon?
  2. Hackathon is an event where students gather together and collaborate intensively on a software or hardware project for 24 or 36 hours. The goal is to give students the opportunity to build the product that they've always wanted to do but never have the time and opportunity to do it.

  3. Do I need to be a computer science major to join the team?
  4. Absolutely Not! We are recruiting students from all majors. You do not need to have any hackathon experience either. If you are passionate about hackathon or event planning, please don't hesitant to apply.

  5. What is the time commitment?
  6. We held weekly meeting for our team organizers, and usually we don't get busy until the week or two before the event.

  7. What if I never been to a hackathon?
  8. No worries. As long as you are passionate about what you are doing, we can on board members pretty quickly so that they know how hackathon works.

  9. What if I am not a student?
  10. If you are not a student and still want to help out, send us an email at and let us know!
