- JPMorgan Chase Techology for Social Good team hackathon
The JPMorgan Chase Technology for Social Good team runs several hackathons around the world that pair up students from great schools like Fordham University with nonprofits in need of innovative technology solutions. We call these events Code for Good and we have three coming up this fall in Columbus, New York, and Delaware.
Over the course of 24 hours, the Code for Good challenge allows students to test their creativity, problem solving, and technical skills to help a good cause. The students will work in teams and have an opportunity to interact and network with new people. JPMorgan Chase technologists will be at the event, mentoring and advising the students along the way. Our nonprofit representatives will also be present to answer questions about the challenge they’re facing.
This program not only offers students prizes, but also offers the opportunity to get on track for a summer internship or a full-time position in our Technology Analyst Development Program.
