Bangalore, October 25 2014: Tomorrow, October 26, is the last day to apply for participation in Kyron, Global Accelerator presents Kyron Hackathon. Some of India’s leading startups are coming together for a unique event to solve a common need – the hunt for talented, passionate team members to help grow their start ups to the next level.
The start ups are looking to hire front end developers/designers, back end developers and iOS/android programmers in Bangalore to help build the next-generation of startup success stories. The participating startups include Cubito, Teritree, Xpense Manager, Adwyze, OneLife, Ewya Media, Viamagus and represent domains as diverse as retail, social engagement, travel, enterprise employee management and digital media. Selected developers will vie for offers from one or more start ups and have the ability to choose their preferred team at the venue itself.
The hackathon is organized into five levels with applicants being filtered at every level and advancing into subsequent rounds to take more challenging problems. Applicants who clear all five levels get to attend a face to face interview on the same day.
Says Varun Backliwal, Program Director, Kyron Global Accelerator said, "The tides are changing - dynamic learning environments, the opportunity to make substantial impact, early exposure to responsibility and accountability, and a possibility of transitioning into leadership roles - is resulting in an increasing number of young people seeking jobs at startups. But with limited resources and bandwidth, startups typically find it challenging to access the talent pool. At Kyron, we are excited about creating a unique platform to bring together the best tech-talent (engineers, coders, developers) and give our portfolio companies the opportunity to grow their teams and fuel their next stage of growth.
The Kyron Hackathon will be held on November 1st, at Kyron, Embassy Golf Links, Sunriver Building, Inner Ring Road, Bangalore from 9 AM. Details here
