Syone Hosts HackerX
Syone was once again a part of HackerX, an event dedicated to connecting the most talented people with the best IT companies.
Nowadays, more than 300 events are hosted every year, in more than 75 cities and counting with more than 3000 IT companies worldwide.
Syone hosted this year’s edition, supporting once again the world’s largest invite-only networking & recruiting event. This edition started with Syone’s presentation, followed by its famous speed interviews, connecting developers with IT companies. Each meeting lasted for 5 minutes where interviewees and companies took the time to show their worth. After the interviews, all participants had the chance to engage in a more relaxed moment, where they could share their know-how and network.
According to João Gomes, HR Manager at Syone, ‘Organizing HackerX is one more step into our Recruitment and Selection proactive approach, an approach that Syone has been adopting in order to answer to the challenges brought by the IT sector. Sharing the company’s values with the recruitment market and inviting them to get to know the company better were some of the goals met with this initiative’.
Being a part of these kinds of events is essential, more so due to the company’s accentuated growth and because it allows us to recruit the most talented people on the market.
‘We approached more that 25 developers, successfully presenting who we are, what we do and our retention policies that differentiate us from the rest of the IT consulting market’ – João Gomes says.
