There is perhaps no more important day in FreeWheel’s event calendar than our annual Hackathon. Every year, FreeWheelers unite from around the globe, transcending geographic and departmental barriers, to collaborate, ideate and innovate new solutions that will propel The New TV Ecosystem forward.
FreeWheel is once again honoring the incredible talent in our global Engineering Teams during National Engineers Week. This week is the perfect opportunity to highlight the dedication, accomplishments, and innovations of our best-in-market engineering team, while also encouraging STEM learning for all students.
We recently completed FreeWheel’s Second Annual Global Hackathon: a 24-hour marathon during which our people transcend geo and departmental borders to collaborate, incubate and innovate. This year’s hackathon was a record-breaking event for our company. More than 250 hackers in the US, China, France and the UK consumed record amounts of coffee and Red Bull while building 49 impressive projects that promote both innovation and efficiency in our operations. The demo phase of the hackathon was streamed globally to foster connection across the entire organization.
Last week, FreeWheel was delighted to celebrate and honor our best-in-market Engineering Team during National Engineers Week (Feb. 21 – 27).
Representatives from FreeWheel will be traveling to several schools across the area searching for rock star software engineers to join our growing team. We are on the hunt for great talent!
FreeWheel recently invited all of our employees to participate in the first annual FreeWheel Global Hackathon. From China to the UK to the US, employees around the world came together to rethink processes, examine procedures and get creative about solutions, not just as they relate to our products, but for the entire FreeWheel experience.
