Navarino was delighted to host the first Hacker X event in Athens last week! It was organized to enable budding web developers to meet executives from technology companies and to discuss job openings. Our CTO Alexandros Giouzenis made the introductory speech and welcomed the attendees.

HackerX is an invite-only recruiting event for developers in 120+ cities globally and has a community of over 100,000+ members. The top developers in each city get to meet face-to-face with technology companies like Navarino to see if there are any opportunities to work together and launch their careers.

Over 60 full stack developers attended the event which was organized in rapid speed-dating format (5 minutes each) to keep things engaging and fun. After all the meetings were completed, all attendees had the chance to mingle over networking drinks. Alexandros said ‘HackerX has been very beneficial for Navarino as it gives us an opportunity to meet and talk with really strong prospective developers. The casual environment puts the candidate at ease so they can represent themselves to the fullest. We look forwards to organizing more such meetups with the next generation of young IT students in the near future.’
