Global Talent Marketplace Platform Andela Launches EPIC Remote Hackathon

Andela, the global marketplace for remote technical talent, has opened applications for its upcoming EPIC Tournament. In partnership with HackerEarth, the tournament will see elite developers working in teams to prototype solutions that will positively impact the growing global remote workforce. Participants can be located anywhere in the world but must choose a country to represent within the 4 different regions: America, Europe, Middle East Africa, or Asia-Pacific.

In line with Andela’s focus on helping companies build remote engineering teams, coders will be hacking and designing products that will help solve the problems of the future of work. Consisting of two rounds, teams or individuals will first participate in the EPIC Coding Challenge, where they will be assessed on their coding abilities. The 3-hour challenge will see participants code their way up to the leaderboard.

A shortlist of 16 teams [four from each region] will get exclusive access to the EPIC Remote Worker Hackathon starting November 28, 2022, where they will spend ten days working on their hack ahead of presenting their solution to a panel of judges. Participants’ final work will be judged based on their problem-solving and product-building skills, as well as Andela’s EPIC values.

The teams with the top three strongest solutions in terms of Creativity, Impact, Feasibility, and Scalability will be awarded prizes worth USD 10 K in cash and swags from Andela and partners. Applications will close on November 26, 2022, with the shortlisted teams evaluated at the live-streamed finale and award ceremony on December 13th, 2022.
