How we’ll organize and customize your hackathon

Original, collaborative, and fun, hackathons are competitions of innovation and inventiveness. Hackathon events bring together passionate tech enthusiasts and challenge them to develop new solutions and build prototypes of their ideas.

We start your hackathon journey with an online or in-person kickoff meeting.
During this session, we gather stakeholders to define and agree on key aspects of the event.

This includes defining the final Hackathon format, deciding on the profile of participants based on your recruitment objectives, and other aspects of the hackathon.

You'll come away with a clear plan for success.

Once we've defined the key objectives of the event, the next step is production. During this phase, a dedicated team will be briefed using a detailed cue-sheet going over the various deliverables required at the end of the event.

We’ll take care of everything.

Our dedicated Outreach team will use a proven methodology to attract and recruit participants matching your target profiles.

You’ll have a talent pool matching your expectations.

Your event is live and you get to experience innovation in action. We manage everything, making sure you identify top talent and run interviews with them.

You’ll have a successful event with many talent within your recruitment process.

Congratulations, you've successfully organized a hackathon event!
Afterwards, we collect and synthesize all the key metrics from the Hackathon and debrief the whole operation to you.

You'll come away with clear insights and actions items.

Examples of success stories

Mbition CodeFest

Main objective: Recruit specific talent
110 participants
40+ job interviews carried out
2 participants hired

Mbition (Mercedes-Benz Innovation Lab) wanted to recruit developers, designers, data scientists and DevOps experts in a short period of time.

Hackathon.com organized a 3-day CodeFest with coding challenges in Berlin. Each day,  new participants gathered to take on 2 challenges:
- 1-hour individual coding challenge
- 4-hour team sprint to solve the challenges the Mbition team faces.

Teams were composed of developers, designers, data scientists and devOps, as well as one Mbition team lead to overlook the challenge and evaluate participants. Throughout each day, the best profiles, recommended by the team lead, were invited to a 20-minute job interview with a HR representative

Huawei University Challenge

Main objective: Build a talent pool and boost employer branding
5 hackathons
950 participants
25 winning projects

Huawei wanted to engage with targeted and qualified communities of data science students to boost its employer brand and identify future talents with data science and analysis competencies.

Hackathon.com organized 5 simultaneous hackathons, calling on Data Science students in France, the UK, Ireland, Sweden and Poland to solve Data and Ai-related challenges.

An Online Opening Ceremony was organised in each country to inspire and train participants. Participants then formed teams and worked online for 2-6 weeks (depending on country) in order to complete a project page  on the BeMyApp platform or submitting algorithm & data models. Huawei mentors provided feedback throughout. Top 6 teams for each country were invited to pitch their project during an Online Closing Ceremony to designate winners.

Organize Hackathon NBC Universal

When we start planning for a hackathon at NBCUniversal, Hackathon.com is the only partner we think of. Hackathon.com has been a trusted partner of ours since 2015 and together we’ve successfully executed about a dozen hackathons – both with internal and external participants. What impressed me the most is their deep expertise in the space as well as their connections within the various developer communities. The team we work is attentive, extremely competent, organized, proactive and most importantly able to adapt to the ever-changing needs before and during a hackathon. For any company out there who is looking to organize and execute a hackathon, must talk to Hackathon.com as a part of their due diligence.
