HackerHunt – A Speed Dating Recruitment Event

You’re already working in the tech industry and you’re seeking a fresh challenge but that dream tech job is still – well – a dream. You feel like time is catching up and self-doubt is starting to creep in. Or maybe you’re that hiring manager who just can’t seem to find the perfect candidate for the job. Whether you’re an experienced hire or an employer, we have the perfect recruitment hack for you – HackerHunt!
Team HackerTrail all set for the event!
HackerHunt is HackerTrail’s very own recruitment event with an added twist. Unlike a traditional recruitment drive, HackerHunt combines the interview process with speed and quality. At our event, all candidates are guaranteed to meet directly with all participating employers individually for 5 minutes each. This process continues until every candidate has had a quick chat with every employer present (yes, that’s why we said “guaranteed”). We see this as a win-win situation: employers won’t miss out on any talent and candidates get their due face time. Best of all? This is done over a buffet dinner and chilled beers so that everyone’s evening is comfortable.
Leveraging on both conventional and unconventional channels, we first engage about 400 – 500 initial applicants for each HackerHunt. From there, we use a proprietary combination of relevance algorithms and gamified technical assessments to sieve out the most relevant 70 to 100 candidates. We then invite them for the event in a central location in the CBD area for easy accessibility. Because HackerHunt is held after office hours, no candidate ever needs to worry about any pesky leave application – it really doesn’t get any easier than this!
For our inaugural HackerHunt on 19th March, we gathered 64 Software Developers to meet top-notch employers such as Accenture, Capgemini, VISA, AXA, Circles.Life, NinjaVan, OCBC, Play2Lead and more! The enthusiastic participants had diverse skills such as frontend, backend and full-stack development and all came with the intention of securing exciting job offers.

Based on current industry hiring trends, on 7th June, we held a HackerHunt focused purely on roles of Data family. A total of 65 candidates, comprising of Data Scientists, Data Engineers and Big Data Developers, turned up to meet participating employers like Micron, PropertyGuru, RedMart, NinjaVan, Grasshopper and more.

Needless to say, it is incredibly difficult to find that dream tech job or that perfect techie to join your team, which is why we have designed HackerHunt as your ultimate one-stop solution. But why take our word for it when you can hear from past participants?

“ The event was well organized with top employers and the interviews went through pretty fast. I went through the interview process for one of the participating companies at the event and I got a final offer within two weeks. Overall, it was a good experience and an informal way to meet employers, grow your network and keep in touch with the tech community in Singapore.”
