About this event
GEP, a leading global provider of procurement and supply chain technology to Fortune 500 and Global 2000 enterprises worldwide, is calling tech-thinkers, coders and developers to GEP TECHATHON 2019.
GEP fosters an environment that embraces new ideas and technology solutions that significantly move the needle for our business and our clients’ businesses. A place where technology designers and developers can come to shape the industry and geek out without having to worry about failure or affecting a company’s bottom line. We know it takes longer than a weekend to build great solutions, but this is ample time to form teams of great minds and begin creating future solutions.
GEP Techathon is a one-day in-house event, eight hours of coding and winning big, where the pre-qualified hackers will come together to work as teams. Your teammates and the problem statement will be revealed during the opening ceremony. A mentor will be assigned to each team, to guide you wherever required.
