tech in alaska

The biggest hesitation for software engineers to relocate to Alaska is the lack of a tech community here. Our goal is to create positive change in the tech ecosystem in Alaska, and eventually eradicate that hesitation by focusing on these three pillars:

  • Community. We build awareness, engage with our communities, and support the efforts of local individual software engineers and creative professionals who are striving to share their passions.
  • Industry. Geeks in the Woods is serious about evolving the tech industry in Alaska with particular emphasis on diversity, women in technology, and sustainability.
  • Leadership. We empower all tech workers and creative professionals to consistently promote innovation and diversity to create a forward-thinking community.

We are pioneering the next frontier of Alaska - the Tech Frontier. If you love building and experimenting with technology in a supportive environment, are seeking a stronger sense of community, and want to be immersed in wilderness, join us in Alaska.
