Can you help someone find their dream job? ZipRecruiter is hosting its first ever Hackathon. We want to see what great minds can build when they come together to help job seekers and employers find each other.
Is there something about job hunting that you can improve? Do you have the next big concept for the gig economy? Are you craving a new big data challenge? Are you a programmer, designer, project manager or just someone with an idea?
