Careers

Help us create a better future

At Free Geek we’re passionate about creating a better future by sustainably reusing technology, enabling digital access, and providing education to create a community that empowers people to realize their potential.

We do this by refurbishing and recycling used technology to provide computers and technology skills training to individuals in exchange for volunteer service. Free Geek also grants computers to schools, nonprofits, and charitable organizations.

What makes Free Geek different from other employers?

We’re giving back to the community

In 2016, Free Geek recycled 1,062,000 pounds of e-waste with the support of 45,000 volunteer hours. 42,330 technology products were returned to the community to be re-used.

Your professional development is important to us

We believe that career and personal development are essential for job satisfaction. That’s why our staff is encouraged to explore work areas outside of their normal job duties. Whether it’s taking an on-site class or attending a conference, we make sure that you have the training and education you need to do your job to the best of your abilities.

We take care of each other

We’re serious about letting our employees share in Free Geek’s successes. Our generous benefits package includes paid vacation, holiday and sick leave, health care, vision and dental benefits, and much more. But the benefits don’t stop there — we’ll keep you powered up at work with a constant stream of snacks, coffee, and tea. You’ll also receive a free laptop after 6 months of working with us — and two Free Geek t-shirts a year to show your pride!

We’re committed to diversity

At Free Geek, we embrace diversity and celebrate what everyone brings to the table, and that makes for a fun and innovative environment. We’re passionate about creating an accepting community and enabling meaningful opportunities for everyone in our workplace.
