Wildcard Programming Challenge

Posted on October 31, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

photo (8)In my experience, there are two types of startups in New York City. Those that are driven by engineering and design, and those that are driven by revenue and sales. While this may not please the business people of the world, I don’t give a shit about sales right now and revenue thinking is almost nowhere to be found in Wildcard’s culture. There will come a time for that, but right now all I care about is building the future that hundreds of millions of people will use to interact with the information and experiences of the internet on their phones.

In order to achieve this goal, we place the highest value on world class engineering practice and world class design process. Our core engineering team hails from the computer science programs of Penn, Stanford, and Carnegie Mellon, and everyone on our engineering team has built meaningful technology that has ultimately been acquired and used at web scale. We are hackers at heart and wanted to design a little programming challenge that should be fun for anyone who shares our values and interests. It’s not a competition, but if your skills are sharp, it should take you between 30 minutes and 2 hours to complete, and there are some cool prizes to be had by those that submit successful solutions.

So if you want to take the Wildcard Programming Challenge, get comfy, click this link, and have fun.

If you want to attract world class programmers, you need to start with the basics (e.g. spelling words correctly – see text under Bitcoin prize)

Respect. Fixing now. Thank you

    About

    I’m a NYC based investor and entrepreneur. I think there is one metric that can be used to measure the value of a human life and that’s impact. How did you change things? How many people did you touch? How different is the world because you lived in it and how positive was the change that you affected? (p.s. i don’t use spell check…deal with it) You can email me at Jordan.Cooper@gmail.com
