For Developers

Don’t worry, we send out the list of companies attending prior to the event, our team also screens through each attendee to make sure your employer isn’t attending.

No, although the event revolves around recruiting, it’s a chance for passive job seekers to explore what’s out there and network with other developers.

Just bring yourself and an empty stomach. If you’re more serious about switching jobs, bringing hard copies of your resume and business cards may come in handy.

To ensure quality, our events are invite only and you likely received an invite from our waitlist or you were invited by someone on our developer sourcing team.

There’s no dress code at our events. They’re designed to be casual in nature so come in whatever you’re most comfortable in.

Every event is different but they are all structured with approximately 1 hour of networking and 2 hours of rapid interviews with companies. 

This allows you to meet the most amount of companies in the least amount of time.

Most of our events will be catered with pizza and beer with vegetarian options. However, this can vary by host so if you have dietary restrictions we recommend eating beforehand.

To stand out many employers bring a table cloth and company banners, as well as company swag. 

All of our events have approximately an hour of networking and 2 hours of rapid interviews. 

The HackerX community is over 100k+ strong but each event goes through a curated sourcing and screening process by our team to ensure quality events. 

It varies from city and by event but we target between 80-100 developer registrations. In some cities our turn out rate is close to 90% while in others it’s as low as 40% but we focus on quality and not quantity to ensure hires. 

We’re not a recruiting firm so we don’t charge a placement fee – just a flat event fee so we can focus on the events and community. 

Most of our events will be catered with pizza and beer with vegetarian options. However, this can vary as per host so if you have dietary restrictions we recommend eating beforehand.
