CodeSprintsCodeSprints are programming contests that we hold every weekend. We invitecompanies to endorse a CodeSprint if they’re interested. At the end of the contest,the company can interact with the participants and hire programmers
CodeSprintsWhat does it take for a company to endorse a CodeSprint? The company that’s endorsing a CodeSprint should be able to contribute at least one programming problem to the contest. This not only acts as an advertising vehicle for the company but also engages programmers to get a peak at the real- world problems. It generally lasts between 5-8 hours How much does it cost to endorse a CodeSprint? We work with companies with two business models: a. Pay-per-hire: This is a pay-per-hire model where the company pays us $10k USD for every programmer hired through the contest. If the company doesn’t hire anyone, they don’t pay us anything b. Flat fee: This is an enterprise model where the company pays us $50K USD for conducting a CodeSprint. You can hire as many programmers you want
