2019 33Across Hackathon

Feelings of pride, triumph, excitement, awe, and maybe a touch of disappointment are running through the 33Across offices as our 6th hackathon just wrapped. In just 24 hours, 10 teams across the US and India worked together to create hacks based on 3 different themes: Attention Platform, Technology & Innovation, and Process & Efficiency.

Unlike more traditional hackathons, our hacks have cross-departmental participation with team members spanning from operations, sales, product, and engineering. Typically, this inclusiveness gives the hacks a better chance for becoming viable products and solutions.

And the actual hacks? The amount of enthusiasm to lead our business forward became clear through not just the technical ingenuity but how every team's presentation tied back to business outcomes specific to 33Across. Our judges certainly did not have an easy job deciding who the winners were in each category.

The winners are:

Technology/Innovation
Voltron (Alex M, Drew, Lifei, Gil, Ujwal): Ad Quality Image Classifier

Attention Platform
Coconut Tart (Ashley, Blair, Derek, Maayan, Mike, Pallavi): Privacy Compliance Automation

Process/Efficiency Improvement
Alama (Alex R, Aparna, Arthur, Lauren D, Mark): Partner Integration Metrics Querying & Alerting

Popular Choice Award
1337h4x0r5 (Adam, Kush, Patrick, Saajan, Sasha): Dynamic and Configurable Alerting System

Hackathon teams present to the entire company

While the US teams were sleeping, the teams in India were in full swing of the 33Across Hackathon

On the other side of the World, our India participants had to record their presentations in advance.

Even our remote colleagues felt the Hackathon vibe

Teams composed of members from our Sunnyvale and NYC offices managed the time difference to brainstorm ideas
