HackerNoon is built for technologists to read, write, and publish. We are an open and international community of 35,000+ contributing writers publishing stories and expertise for 5 - 8 Million curious and insightful monthly readers.

HackerNoon is a small, distributed team of 20-ish people* passionate about making the internet a better place by publishing free high quality tech stories - without paywalls, pop-up ads, or a sense of entitlement.

*HackerNoon is also a huge, global team of over 35,000+ writers, founders, makers, thinkers and technologists, plus over 5 - 8 Million monthly readers, but unfortunately we didn’t have space to feature them all here.

 
 

The internet is our generation's greatest invention. We think it works  better without paywalls, pop-ups, or the abuse of data. 

Whether it’s a Newsletter Sponsorship, taking over HackerNoon’s Site-Wide Top Navigation Banner for awhile, or buying credits to publish brand as author posts, these are the #GoodCompanies currently helping us keep the lights on HackerNoon. Plus, we're experimenting with Web Monetization :-)

HackerNoon is where hackers start their afternoons. We’re talking diehards; lurkers; script kiddies; hats all the way through white, grey, green, blue, red and black; plus a few plain old Tim Ferriss fanboy #LifeHackers - the full spectrum, you’ll find ’em here. HackerNoon is a close-knit community for cat people and single dads who code. A safe place for power women in tech and misunderstood millennials. For gross teenagers and curious retirees. For hodlrs, venture capitalists and anarchists. For entrepreneurs and engineers. For philosophers, product managers, and futurists

In short, HackerNoon has space for everybody.

There is only one rule of engagement: We treat our internet friends with respect. 

HackerNoon is also on pretty much every social media platform ever invented—so find us where you like to be by searching @hackernoon.  Or come hang out with us via slogging

Here are some nice things our friends have said about us on the socials:

We code our site from the feet up. In July 2019, we removed the Medium content management system from our site, and launched our own publishing platform. Overnight, HackerNoon became not only a publishing company, but also a software company.

We built (and continue to build) the HackerNoon platform:

  • for readers to enjoy access to highest quality, evergreen and topical tech content—paywall and pop-up-free

  • for writers to elevate their own voices with the support of our team of human editors to review, improve, publish, and distribute their words online

  • for sponsors to make a positive and potentially profitable impression on tech’s most influential and innovative minds
