Eva offered me the opportunity to participate in the HR Hackathon with my team from Rocket Internet. It was an amazing, positive and fun-filled events where we developed a product that got some of us a change in our career path (I landed a CTO job at a local startup). and also we got to experience the amount of untapped potential in the HR scene. Highly recommended for any entrepreneur-minded developer, designer and HR-passionate.
Enrico Foschi, CTO (developer participant in the 2015 and jury member in the 2016 edition)
This was definitely one of the best events I have been to in a long time (and I visited quite a few). Look forward to coming to the next.
Oscar Mager, CEO of RecruitingEssentials
The Event is unique because you get ideas from HR folks AND coders. All together we made Tech Recruitment suck less but did it from totally different angles. This is where innovation happens.
Iwan Gulenko, developer and consultant
The first HR Hackathon has opened a new chapter in the history of HR.
Barbara Braehmer, CEO intercessio GmbH
We were thrilled to see that developers very easily used our API to create new HR Tech.
The HR Hackathon is an event where people do not just talk but actually develop useful technology.
Jakub Zavrel, CEO Textkernel, API & Silver Sponsor 2015 edition
The first HR Hackathon was great! We talked to many talented people and experienced a unique working atmosphere. We will definitely be part of the next one.
Maike Petersen, Marketing Manager softgarden, Bronze Sponsor 2015 edition
We wanted to support the start of what we believe can be a disruptive event format in the HR Tech space.
Our expectations were fully met and we are keen to continue to contribute to the future of this event as a sponsor. The HR Hackathon is here to stay!

Conclusion: The HR Hackathon was brilliant. The takeaways were tremendous. It was very refreshing to get in touch with people who did not think and react in a typical HR manner [i.e. thanks to the developers]. It was pure Out-of-the-Box thinking and the implementation went hand-in-hand during the event. I will participate in the next HR Hackathon at any rate!
Our Conclusion: The Event Format is excellent. The idea, to bring HR professionals and developers together to elaborate solutions in a team makes complete sense. It is a win for everyone.
Thomas Lindt, Veda GmbH
The first HR Hackathon lived up to its promise: Get HR and IT together in one room to find out what is doable from a technical point of view and build it.
