We are inviting talented technologists like you to attend the J.P. Morgan Code for Good Hackathon. Over two days and one night, you’ll code in teams alongside our experts, learning from the sharpest minds in the industry as you creatively use technology to address a real technological challenge for a leading nonprofit organization. The hackathon will give you an opportunity to use your vision, imagination and expertise to help a good cause.
At the end of the hackathon, each team will take their solutions to a panel of judges, including senior Technology leaders and representatives from the participating nonprofits. Prizes will be awarded to winning teams over the weekend, but remember, these competitions are also a perfect opportunity for you to demonstrate your abilities to J.P. Morgan recruiters and technologists, who are actively involved with each event.
