The Challenge

Meet the most talented developers and challenge yourself in a one-of-the-kind competition. vivenu is not your typical place of work and this is not a typical competition. Apply for the coolest coding challenge and show what you can. Here are some key facts:

  • 18 Participants (Full Stack / Frontend / Backend) will be split up in 6 teams
  • 2 days of Challenges AND Fun / 3 days of Pure Fun

Disclosure: This is a recruiting event. Please only apply if you are also ready for a full time position at vivenu. Winning is nice, for sure, but it's not a requirement for a potential full-time position at vivenu. Our mentors evaluate every participant on an individual basis, so even if your team doesn't come out on top, you might still be an awesome co-challenger.

The Travel

Explore the beautiful Algarve of Portugal on this "Surf'n'Hack" Travel Challenge. The Algarve is the beautiful southern coastline of Portugal and is rich of touristic highlights comprising 16 municipalities, each with its own identity, a charming scenery, stories and secrets to share. The region is equally famous for its international surf spots, glorious sandy beaches, picturesque fishing towns and a glorious climate, all of which combine to create the perfect destination for this Surf'n'Hack event.

  • Accommodation in an Own Villa for all Participants and Mentors
  • Vegan / Non-Vegan Barbecue Evenings
  • Breakfast, Vine and Cocktail Flatrate
  • Guided travel program on three days: Choice of Surf Trips, Visits to Faro and Lagos, Mountainbike tours and Hikes
