Global Technology Company Crossover Had a Successful Hiring Tournament in Karachi

 

Lahore: 07 May 2017 –  PK / Austin, TX, USA – The global technology company Crossover ran a successful hiring tournament in Karachi, looking to hire the best talent from Pakistan. More than 300 programmers in Dot Net and Java technology applied in a highly competitive competition.

Earlier this year, Crossover hired eight senior software architects in Lahore. Now it’s Karachi’s turn, I believe we had even better results here. Our journey in Pakistan may continue with Islamabad”.

 

The full day event was made out of multiple rounds, highly gamified and competitive process that finishes with a technical interview and on the spot job offer. At first round candidates were asked to be tested with their basic skills with a multiple choice test. The concept has been tested in Egypt, Turkey, Russia, Romania, Poland and Ukraine before bringing it to Pakistan.

 

The second half of the tournament was focused on project assignments and coding challenges, the top candidates who passed these rounds were invited to the interviews. Technical interview winners were offered full time / remote jobs offer paying worth $100K/Year.
