Pinewood Sponsors Birmingham Open Hack 2020

Pinewood Technologies proudly sponsored the Birmingham Open Hack event which took place this weekend, challenging students from Birmingham City University to an online hackathon. Students put their technical skills to the test in a competitive 48-hour online challenge, with other major sponsors including IBM, Santander and Microsoft. Pinewood were impressed by the passion, commitment and technical skills displayed, Katrina McTernan, Early Careers Recruiter at Pinewood explains:

“It was inspiring to see such energy from the next generation of our tech community – these students have set the benchmark, giving us a clear picture of the level of talent we can expect to be joining our teams in the near future.”

Pinewood’s challenge was to develop a Microsoft Teams Bot for remote classrooms, allowing teachers to create flash cards and questions to present to students, returning results back to the teacher. Pinewood were impressed by efforts from all candidates, viewing the hackathon with fantastic potential to bring new talent into their software teams. Katrina discusses:

“We invest a lot in early careers, hiring up to 20 Computer Science Graduates and Undergraduates each year to grow the best talent. Being involved in events like Birmingham Open Hack allows us to scout out new talent, it’s great to see so many students showing an interest in development beyond their course of study.”

Pinewood are recruiting developers to join their team, with roles for Placement Students, Graduates and Senior Developers. Birmingham Open Hack offered students the opportunity to get involved in simulation projects, gaining valuable experience and the chance to get noticed. Pinewood are keen to chat further with those who made an impression and look forward to meeting more tech-enthusiasts at future events.
