SkipTheDishes hosted their 1st Hackathon Recruitment Trip in São Paulo, Brazil in March. They had over 3000 people sign up for this first event, and through targeted pre-screening, they chose the top 500 candidates to attend the Hackathon. From the 350 candidates interviewed, job offers were extended to 87 top software developers and engineers.

This event will be supported by VanHack, a tech recruitment agency specializing in overseas talent. They will help pre-screen the candidates through coding tests and English language screening, as well as provide day-of-event support. They were partners in the 1st Hackathon and their reach into the Brazilian tech market was a huge factor in its success.

The event is run as a Hackathon Challenge.  Employers will interview candidates they select throughout the day, and then after the event have access to their Hackathon Challenge results to assess technical skills.  There are several different challenges available depending on which position and skill set you are looking to be evaluated.

SkipTheDishes shares the need to attract tech talent with other companies in Manitoba's tech community. Therefore, they would like to extend the offer for other Manitoba tech companies to join them on their recruitment trip in an effort to bring as much amazing tech talent into the prairies as possible.  Your tech association, ICTAM, will be in Sao Paulo for the recruitment fair and we hope that you will join us there.
