Major League Hacking (MLH) is looking for a Graphic Designer who specializes in Print Design to help us educate and empower our community. Every year, thousands of developers, designers, and makers attend MLH events where they learn new skills and develop a deep passion for technology.

You’ll partner with our CEO to quickly bring your designs to life.
