We can’t get enough of PennApps.

We’re back at it again! This fall’s PennApps X marks the 10th time the UPenn hackathon takes place, and we’re excited to be sponsoring again alongside big names like Microsoft, Facebook, Google, and Uber.

This Friday, September 12th through Sunday, September 14th, PennApps X is slated to host 1,000+ of the brightest high school and college developers from around the world. Students are pairing up to work around the clock all weekend long (sleep optional) building apps that they’ll present to a panel of judges to win prizes.

Some of last year’s awesome apps included 1st Place Winner “Swap”, 2nd Place Winner, “Super Duper Mario”, and one of our personal favorites, “Daytripper”.


Hang and hack with us at REDlounge!

REDlounge is making a comeback at PennApps X, complete with classic arcade games, bean bag chairs, free swag, and endless snacks.

Our seasoned developers and designers will be on duty mentoring hackathon participants. To make sure you get some face time with the pros, book an appointment to meet with them.

We’ll also be keeping our eyes peeled for new talent to join our team. If you’re looking for a job or internship at one of the best places to work in Philly, schedule a meeting with our Talent Acquisition squad to learn more about what we do and how you can get involved.

Hurry! Appointments are limited, and spots are filling up quickly!

50onRed Product Engineer, Tim Miller, first met us last year at PennApps. Check out his Q&A to find out how he went from student hacker to putting the “pro” in “programmer”.
