{{note|Last names were removed, starting April 2020.<ref>https://github.com/LLK/scratch-www/pull/3805</ref> The Wiki shows first letters of last names (if known) for identification purposes.}}
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].

Being a member of the Scratch Team is a paying job, 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. Applicants must be skilled in the role they want to work at (programming, moderating, etc.), and in some cases may have to commute to the [[Wikipedia:MIT Media Lab|MIT Media Lab]] located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.

Identifying Members

An asterisk next to a Scratch Team Member's name.
A Scratch Team Member on the forums.

Members of the Scratch Team on the Scratch Website can be identified by the asterisk (*) next to their username.[7] 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.

Joining the Scratch Team

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

The jobs page[8] in the footer lists jobs currently available for those wanting to work on the Scratch Team. Being a member of the Scratch Team is a paying job, 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. Applicants must be skilled in the role they want to work at (programming, moderating, etc.), and in some cases may have to commute to the MIT Media Lab located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
