Hacker Noon is built for technologists to read, write, and publish. We are an open and international community of 12,000+ contributing writers publishing stories and expertise for 4,000,000+ curious and insightful monthly readers. 

Hacker Noon is a small, distributed team of 12-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.

*Hacker Noon is also a huge, global team of over 12,000 writers, founders, makers, thinkers and technologists, plus over 4,000,000 monthly readers, but unfortunately we didn’t have space to feature them all here.


Hacker Noon 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. Hacker Noon 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, Hacker Noon has space for everybody.

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

Hacker Noon is also on pretty much every social media platform ever invented—so find us where you like to be—or come hang out at community.hackernoon.com.

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


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 Hacker Noon’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 Hacker Noon. Plus, we're experimenting with Web Monetization :-)

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, Hacker Noon became not only a publishing company, but also a software company.

We built (and continue to build) the Hacker Noon 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

  • for editors: coming soon ;-)

Our writers' stories achieve mad coverage in both fringe and mainstream media.
