Desks Work Hard Pittsburgh

There are two ways to access the Work Hard Pittsburgh community and facilities:

Cooperative Member – Work Hard Pittsburgh, LLC is cooperatively owned. Cooperative Members earn units over time through their participation, service, and cash contribution. Membership in the Work Hard Pittsburgh Co-op is governed by our Operating Agreement and Standards and Practice documents as well as the Terms of Use regarding our physical space. Generally, co-op members have access to value-adding services in addition to access to facilities.

Coworker – A coworker at Work Hard Pittsburgh has full access to facilities and site resources. Coworkers DO NOT earn units of Work Hard Pittsburgh, LLC.

Both types of use provide 24/7 access to common areas located inside of facilities. Dedicated space is available for additional fees.

Here’s a handy table to help you understand the difference.

Work Hard is accepting new members on a rolling basis as spots become available.

If you want to know more about membership or find out whether we have an open spot, reach out to us at: membership@workhardpgh.com

All prospective members and co-workers must first schedule a tour. After the tour, we’ll:

  • Ask you to fill out a questionnaire about yourself, your work, and your goals
  • Schedule an interview with our Membership Committee
  • Get you set up as  either a Member or Co-worker

We use each stage of this process to determine whether you’re a good fit for Work Hard Pittsburgh. We’re looking for Members and Co-workers who can help us fulfill our mission.
