Our festival is approaching, so get ready to navigate a river of opportunities! We’ve reinvented the job fair and made it an annual must-do career event for people interested in the tech scene. Our team is working hard for the 2017 edition and we have a lot of news: new brand, new format, more fun and another Hackathon! You can know all about it here. Stay tuned to see how we’re keeping our promise to always #aimformore.
This year will be awesome and we want you to be a part of it! Wondering why? Here are 7 reasons why your company should definitely join us:
1. Crème de la crème: engage with top-notch developers
Your team will have a chance to meet face-to-face, interview and hire from a pool of more than 1500 selected tech professionals. They’re coming from all over the world, and you can meet them all in one place! That means saving time and money since we’re filtering only the best applications.
We also create the right atmosphere for you to find the right talent! Yep. We got sun, boats, great speakers, fun activities and, of course, an amazing vibe.
2. It’s showtime: showcase your culture
Our festival is a great place to show off your brand with the tech community and to attract talents. Our participants will be looking for challenging jobs and it’s a good way to engage in meaningful conversations about the technologies you use, your day-to-day activities and what’s like working with you. It can also be a chance to cement your company’s voice, to stand out from the crowd and to show what you’ve got up your sleeve.
3. Network with peers who share the same passion (and problems) as you
Networking. Networking. Networking. Conferences give you the chance to meet other people who face the same issues you do, and realise that their approach might work for your organisation as well. There’s no better advice from someone who’s on the same page as you. The casual and informal environment, the great view and, why not, a beer or two may also help to flow the conversation and to share hits and misses. When else will you have a chance to be in the same place as some of the biggest influencers in the tech industry?
4. Gather business insights with the best
Whether you’re attending a talk or engaging in intimate conversations, Landing.careers Festival offers you a chance to learn from thought leaders, industry innovators and experts. We’re expecting more than 30 speakers, 60 companies and 70 sponsors and partners! Take a peek at our lineup. They’ll talk about technologies you may not have known about, processes’ successes, and what’s ahead for the future of your business. These are all big reasons why you should attend.
5. Sunny June: perfect excuse to visit Lisbon
Have you ever been to Portugal? We don’t need to say much to make you want to be in Lisbon for two days in sunny June (also time for the popular saint’s festival). Lisbon has friendly people and an amazing gastronomy. It’s the perfect destination for foodies, especially seafood admirers!
Portuguese wine is already known for its quality and you’ll be able to taste a lot of it, and since Lisbon is so close to beaches, you can also spend a refreshing day in the sun. What are you waiting for? Pack your bags!
6. Time to unplug: enjoy downtime
Recharging your batteries out of the office is very important for the creative process. It’s usually during breaks that “a-ha” moments happen. The Landing.careers Festival is an opportunity for you to disconnect from emails, inside meetings and other routine activities. If you’re bringing your team, it’s also a great time for team bonding activities. That’ll definitely foster team spirit, empathy and motivation.
7. Mingle with the entire market
It’s a chance to be involved with successful companies such as Microsoft, Trivago, Zalando, Typeform, and much more. Some of the most important players of the Europe tech scene will be present: from young start-ups to SMEs and big-name companies. You can also be part of the future of tech careers and influence the market trends.
Don’t miss the opportunity to take part in this unique event! We’re waiting for you in Lisbon on June 2nd and 3rd. Save the date and prepare to rock the boat! Pre-register without commitment so we can get in touch. We’re waiting for you!
