We select for intelligent, motivated and fun people and train them to be great developers. Our admissions process includes a written application, a technical assessment, and both behavioral and technical interviews. We look for students that we would ultimately want to hire at our own start ups (and some of them we have). </SPAN></P>

After watching this brief introduction to each student you will be free to speak with them individually at each station. At 8 minute intervals we will signal for everyone to wrap up the conversations they are currently engaged in so that employers have an opportunity to speak with each candidate in the room.</SPAN></P>
