The opportunity

Bloomberg is always looking for the best and brightest talent for their software engineering programmes.

Via Debut’s app, Bloomberg targeted Computer Science students to a CodeCon event at their London offices. The objective of the event was to assess the candidates’ coding abilities through a two-hour challenge.

27 Debut users attended the event, out of which 10 were fast-tracked to a later stage in the application process for the company’s software engineering programmes.
