We are very excited to announce our 1st edition Backbase Hackathon is here!  The idea came from wanting to bring the best talent together, to share our favorite frameworks, project successes, and intelligent and creative hacks we use for issues cropping up on a daily basis.

As any other event of this kind out there, our 1st Backbase Hackathon will be about celebrating how far we have come, with the challenge of pushing our skills to the max with a time-limited exercise in creating team-based hack demos over two days. It’s also a unique chance to try something new, driven by the competitive spirit. Collaboration, knowledge-sharing and fun are at the core of our Hackathon!

As Backbase is growing bigger and bigger everyday new talented people are joining our team every month, it’s a golden occasion for all of us (regardless of departments) to meet and bond with each other on the same ground through passion for what we do.

Our goal for this edition is to spark creative innovation in digital banking. At the same time we optimize our internal processes as Backbase, so we improve the way we create rich, interactive web portals and mobile applications even more.

In this edition we have decided to focus our projects on Backbase CXP products and tooling we use on a daily basis around Backbase projects. This implies we create some room for those improvements we always wanted to implement and will have an impact in our products’ roadmaps.

At the same time, we are proposing a curated set of APIs (internal and external) that can be consumed during our 1st Backbase Hackathon.It is a unique opportunity to delve into open APIs and technologies to create new applications for banking customers.

Our 1st Hackathon is also about winning a grand prize, and proudly hang the winning team picture on our hall of fame! Winner or not, all the teams will altogether celebrate their hard work with food, drinks and music at the end!
