imo Hackathon@Northwestern is an event hosted by Hack Northwestern and sponsored byimo.im, a quickly growing Silicon Valley start-up co-founded by one of the first 10 employees at Google. The hackathon is designed for students in the Chicago-land area to build collaborative apps that can be discoverable by imo’s millions of users.
We want this hackathon to be fun while allowing students to show off their skills - and get rewarded for their talents.
Coders will have 22 hours to build an app for the chance to win big prizes and get a leg up in imo’s recruiting process. And of course, it wouldn't be an event without free food and swag.
If you are attending the event and would like to send your resume in before or after the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line JOB ID: 012.
This event is open to all university students, not just Northwestern students. Just remember your university email address!
