Hire the best talent while streamlining your applicant process. 

Leverage Hackathons as an untapped channel to reach & bring together diverse, qualified, and purpose-driven individuals - driving hiring outcomes at scale

Recruiting the right employee is difficult.

Talent Acquisition Managers shared that even with high applicant volume, the current lengthy and impersonal hiring process makes it hard to find the right candidate. 

Saved Time

A hackathon makes it easy to test a large group of applicant skillsets in 48 hours instead of several weeks. 

DEI Focused

We partner with local DEI organizations including Girls in Tech and HBCU's to source applicants. 

Beyond a Resume

Hackathon workshops and final projects make it easier to see a candidate's skillset beyond their resume. While also giving one the opportunity to meet and speak with participants face to face to see their cultural fit.
