We're Running Coding Challenges On The 101 Freeway In San Francisco

If you're a developer in San Francisco, why the long commute?

Companies have tried just about everything to recruit talented developers. We understand this struggle, and that's exactly why we're running a series of coding challenges on the 101 Freeway in San Francisco. 

We thought it'd be fun to challenge commuters to solve a fun challenge on their long commute home (on average 2.5 hours!) . After all, a good developer would never turn down a coding challenge right?  

 The Commuting Engineer Challenge went live this week with our partners at Mashery, Flurry, New Relic, and Glassdoor. The goal is to find the shortest distance between serveral startup offices in the San Francisco Area and show people how much time they might be able to save on their commute. 

Give it a shot and let us know what you think or get in touch and see how your company can get involved.
