Bangalore: In a bid to attract technology driven engineering talent, online lingerie store Zivame.com will organise a Hackathon here Nov 14.
The online store is holding the event in an attempt to expand its tech team and looks forward to entries from both front and back-end developers.
Interested people can register online to participate in the event, in which they can take part individually or as a two-member team. Zivame team will also send relevant material to the participants to help them in preparation for the event.
Adding to the fun and to test the skills of the candidates, challenges for the hackathon will be announced on the spot. However, emphasis of the event will be on a candidate's coding practices - reusable and maintainable code.
"The entire consumer experience is driven by technology - from the website to the delivery to feedback. Therefore, we are always looking for exceptional engineering talent. A hackathon helps replicate real life coding problems that we want to test our applicants on, in a fun and engaging, yet professional atmosphere," said CTO of the store Shyam Krishnamurthy in a statement.
The event will start at 10 a.m. and will go on till noon Nov 15, when the results will be declared. Since the event will require candidates to work at night, they should bring their own linen as basic sleeping facilities will be provided by the company.
