Let the fun begin!

Hackathons are a great way for Vantiv to cultivate and harness creativity of their teams and build without constraints.

Hackathons are an event where Software Developers, for a defined period of time, work on topics of interest that may or may not be related to their regular work.

At the 2017 IP Engineering and Innovation Inaugural Hack Days, teams will be creating ground-breaking implementations and competing for a number of prizes.

We'll have mentors onsite to guide you through your projects. But the challenge is yours. Your team must build it, present it, and then watch your peers turn green with envy as you present "on stage" Wednesday August 23, at 3:30pm. Deadline for submission is 3:00pm that same day.

We want all of our hackdays to be about working together with employees you usually wouldn’t and leaving your comfort zone to build, learn, and most importantly, have fun.

Who will be there? Developers, Testers, QA's, DBA's, Scrum Masters, Product, Business, Marketing, Developer Integrations, BI's, BA's, and then some... this event truly is for everyone!
