Glispa’s First HackerX Recruitment Event
We teamed up with HackerX to show developers from the Berlin area what we have to offer
Last night saw our global HQ in Berlin bustling with even more talent than usual, as we teamed up with HackerX to offer a recruiting event for the first time. We hosted over 60 prospective developers, engineers and data scientists for food, drinks and an introduction to glispa’s products, culture, and data-driven approach. Berlin already hosts a thriving tech scene, and for glispa, as an ad tech company, finding and hiring the right people to drive the company’s technology forward is an essential part of our growth strategy. We already doubled our tech department in 2015 and are continuing to establish glispa as a leading employer in the technology space in Berlin.
After a tour and some introductory words from our CTO Philipp Neuberger and CPO Freddy Friedman, the attendees were given the opportunity to speak to members of glispa’s various engineering and data teams. By moving around different areas, they got the chance to speak formally with senior members of the different technology teams at glispa, and also informally with further members of other teams. In this way, they got to learn about the strategic direction glispa’s product offering is taking, how they could fit into the mix, and what everyday working life is like at glispa.
At the end of the evening, some of the lucky attendees received raffle prizes such as drones, GoPros, Samsung Galaxy Tabs and Raspberry Pis. We’re confident everyone went home with a positive impression of glispa as a great place to work and a leading player in ad tech.
