So long, #TuentiChallenge6

As is the case each year, we have concluded the second phase of our programming contest with the 10 finalists joining us in our Madrid office to find out first-hand what Tuenti is and who we are.

First off, as promised, we broke the ice with a little party on the terrace on Thursday afternoon: there was no shortage of drinks, food and music. The finalists got to see first-hand how we celebrate team achievements in the company ;)

To conclude the final phase of the Tuenti Challenge, the finalists had to solve another mini-contest of 3 problems within two hours. As expected, they were up to the task and their ideas and code did not disappoint.

This was followed by a workshop with Suso B. on Engineering at Tuenti and the lunch break. In the afternoon, the finalists had several group and individual interviews in order to finalize the decision of the “committee of wise men” which would decide the final ranking.

Just an hour ago, we held the awards ceremony and announced the names of the winners. The podium is taken by:
Jakub H.
Eric M.
José A. O.

The following participants also reached this second phase (in alphabetical order):
Daniel E.
Endika G.
Jesús L. D.
Jonatan H.
Julian S.
Sergio L.
Taras S.

As always, we would like to thank all this year’s participants for the time, enthusiasm and hours spent trying to solve our problems. Thank you very much from the entire engineering team at Tuenti. And for all of you who missed out, we hope to see you next year in #TuentiChallenge7 :-)
