The real estate consultancy company Colliers International Romania is organizing the first Colliers Hackathon, a programming marathon dedicated to the company’s Banking Products division, the leader in the periodic evaluation of residential portfolios, in accordance with the requirements of the National Bank of Romania.

Colliers' mission is to accelerate the success of our clients, and innovation is very much of the secret we rely on. We work in an entrepreneurial spirit, based on curiosity, honesty, discipline, teamwork and thinking about a future where technology will make our lives better. We have many ideas for the real estate market in Romania and we are looking for local talents with the same values, with whom to translate these ideas into reality", Gabriel Blăniță, Senior Associate Valuation and Advisory Services at Colliers, said.

Freelancers, IT and technology start-ups and enthusiasts of concepts such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, microservices, web scraping and RPA are invited to join the Colliers Hackathon. They can register individually or in teams. Moreover, the creative process will be coordinated by a team of mentors and the solutions will be presented in front of a jury made up of the real estate market and business professionals and experienced programmers.
