Hiring Success Hackathon

Dear Recruiting technologists

If you want to build an innovation and share it with hundreds TA and HR leaders, we’re happy to help make it happen. You’ll get a SmartRecruiters sandbox, API access, and a tech support team. Complete your build and prepare a 2 min live demo before Hiring Success.

At Hiring Success, all attendees will become part of a hiring process: one who’s job is to pick the best innovation. We’ll each get €100k of play money to spend on 20 candidates. Top three earners will make it to the final round. The final interview is a main stage session with our innovators and the hiring team: a panel of media, VC, and executives who will decide who gets the offer.
