Atlanta is a strong tech city and Cardlytics, an Atlanta-based advertising and technology company, is tapping into that talent in an innovative way. The fast-growing company created a software engineering competition to reward technology students and help identify talent for their open technology and engineering positions based right here in Atlanta.
In addition to cash prizes, the top three competitors will receive a guaranteed interview with Cardlytics’ senior engineering team.
THE CHALLENGE: It’s a secret! The specific software engineering challenge to be solved will remain a closely guarded secret until the competition on Tuesday, September 17th.
● Competition is open to all Georgia Institute of Technology students (limit 60). Individual entries only.
● Participants will have six hours to solve a complex problem by developing a working software prototype in any technology stack (e.g. Java, C#, C, C++, etc.).
