Pitney Bowes launches its 2nd diversity Hackathon 'Pitney Bowes Code Inspire 2.0', a Hack-a-thon for women in technology.

Diversity and inclusion are deep-rooted in Pitney Bowes culture and are fundamental to our success. Pitney Bowes realizes the importance of women in technology and that of encouraging more women to join technology-related fields. Last year, we conducted Pitney Bowes Code Inspire, a hackathon specifically for women at college, which was huge success.

This year, Pitney Bowes brings to you ‘Code Inspire 2.0’, a particularly unique initiative aimed at women in colleges, working women & women who have taken a career break. Women in Tech should be encouraged and celebrated and this is a great platform for them to showcase their coding skills. ‘Code Inspire 2.0’ is aimed to test Algorithm programming skills in programmers, which is the foundation of computer programming.

The contest will have 2 rounds:
Round 1: Virtual Round conducted from 11th August to 13th August.
Round 2: Shortlisted women from the virtual round will be invited to an Offline Hackathon on 18th August in Pitney Bowes Pune Office.

The Online Round will have 2 Programming questions with varying difficulty levels, which should be solved over a duration of 2 Hours. Participants who solve the problems correctly in the shortest time span will be shortlisted and invited to Pitney Bowes office in Pune for the 2nd Offline Round. The Offline Round will ask you to solve problems that will help enable commerce across the full commerce continuum with speed and agility.

Showcase your spirit of innovation through PB Code Inspire 2.0!

Note: Once the shortlist is announced after the qualifier round i.e the online coding round 1, the shortlisted participants will have to be present at PB office in Pune for round 2. Participants will have to bear expense of travel.
