We love hackathons.

Professional hackathon organisers with 5+ years of experience. We can design and architect your event to deliver an experience that meets and exceeds your expectations and values.

We've been organising hackathons for a long time.

We collectively have over five years of experience organising hackathons, and many more years of organising events. Our team has been part of more than 60 hackathons, so we know what it takes to deliver an unforgettable experience.

Recruitment

Hackathons are a great way to recruit up-and-coming developers to your internships and graduate roles. Running a hackathon gives you a chance to show what your company's really about.

Branding and Marketing

Run a hackathon to put your company name and logo at the forefront of people's minds. Branded swag and eye-catching banners make your company stand out – or we can arrange more subtle advertising, too.

Product & API Testing

Put your API or product in front of hundreds of eager developers. They'll test your documentation, see how intuitive your platform is, and you'll raise awareness of your product in the developer community.

Digital events are in our roots...

Running a digital hackathon lets you reach a wide audience of developers across the world, or even just in your local community. We have the experience and tools to deliver a unifying experience that brings people together, and to boost engagement amongst participants.

...and in-person events are at our core.

Bring people together at an in-person hackathon to really strengthen your community. It's difficult to beat the atmosphere in the room when you put hundreds of eager developers together! We'll handle the logistics and the planning, leaving you to focus on what matters to you most.

How We Work

Our Hackathon Process

We love working with companies, organisations and individuals to deliver hackathons!

1.

Discovery

We'll set up a time to get to know you, your goals, and what kind of experience you want to create. No ask is too big or too small!

2.

Proposal

Our team will prepare a proposal and a quote for our services. This will be an outline of your event and the planning process.

3.

Planning

We'll work closely with you to create a memorable experience for developers and stakeholders. This is usually the longest part of the process.

4.

Delivery

It's hackathon time! We'll handle the logistics, the tooling, the strategy and everything behind-the-scenes to deliver a high-quality event.

We care about hacker experience.

We know how important it is for hackers to enjoy taking part in your hackathon. That's why we'll provide expert advice from seasoned hackers about how to make sure your event is the one that really stands out to hackers.

Aaron Osher

Director & Co-Founder

Aaron has spent the last several years building hacker communities, HackSoc and HackNotts, in Nottingham. He’s since gone on to become a Coach for Major League Hacking and co-found Hackathons UK.

It was a delight attending the Hackathon Hackers Europe Unconference last year. The event gave me the opportunity to meet up with fellow UK hackathon organisers and provided us with a comfortable and engaging environment to share our concerns, advice and tips on running a hackathon. I highly recommend attending it, if you can!
