Work at STS

If you (or someone you know) would like getting paid to help fellow students learn while also working in a flexible, technology-focused environment, STS is the place!

We are always on the lookout for people who enjoy learning new skills and teaching them to others.

Pay starts at $15 per hour and increases with experience, and schedules are designed around each student’s academic, professional, and personal obligations.

This semester we are especially interested in hiring students with skills in the following areas:

  • Graphic Design (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, XD, Figma, etc.)
  • Audio and Video Production (Premiere Pro, Audition, Audacity, etc.)

NOTE: any student currently enrolled for credit at a degree-granting institution can apply – not just UW-Madison students!

Qualified candidates for the position of Student Technology Trainer are:

  • Eager to help other people succeed
  • Interested in learning and practicing new software and technology skills
