Joining the Scratch Team is similar to being hired for a job. In order to join the Scratch Team, you have to be 18 years old, commute to MIT Media Lab located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA (for some jobs), and be skilled at the part you want to work at (programming, moderating, etc.). A current list of Scratch Job openings can be found [http://scratch.mit.edu/jobs here].

The Scratch Team (often abbreviated ST) is the group of people who work on Scratch that develop the Scratch program and moderate the Scratch website.

Joining the Scratch Team

Main article: How can I be a Scratch Team member?

To join the Scratch Team, you must be hired, as it is a paying job. In order to join the Scratch Team, you have to be at least 18 years old, commute to MIT Media Lab located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA (for some jobs), and be skilled at the part you want to work at (programming, moderating, etc.). A current list of Scratch Job openings can be found here.

Identifying Members

An asterisk next to a Scratch Team Member's name.

Members of the Scratch Team on the Scratch Website can be identified by the asterisk (*) next to their username.[4] Also, under the ST member's username will be the words "Scratch Team." In the Scratch Forums, the words "Scratch Team" appear underneath the profile picture of what the member posted. Some retired Scratch Team members do not have an asterisk next to their username.

Contacting the Scratch Team

One can contact the Scratch Team through the Contact Us form found at the bottom of every page. The Contact Us link is for more private or serious concerns, which should not be posted publicly. For less serious concerns, or for other reasons of contacting them, one can use a Scratch Team member's profile page.

Jobs

The jobs page in the footer lists jobs currently available for those wanting to work on the Scratch Team. These are paid jobs, so applicants must be at least 18 (or work at or be a student at MIT) and have the authorization to work in the US. The jobs available change over time, as new job openings come and go. The page for finding available jobs can be found here.
