We’re launching a contest, open to all Programming enthusiasts! If you love to code and solve problems, try solving this one from the Kijiji Canada Development Team:
Armed with the JVM language of your choice, your mission is to figure out which Toronto street gives the city the most revenue from parking tickets.
This challenge is based on data published by the City of Toronto on its open data portal. Detailed instructions can be found at https://github.com/kijiji-ca/2013-coding-contest. This contest is open until July 31st, 2013 at 11:59pm
The winners will receive not only bragging rights, but some pretty sweet prizes:
- 1st Prize – 15–inch MacBook Pro with Retina display
- 2nd Prize – 32GB iPad with Retina display
- 3rd Prize – 16GB iPad mini
Submissions will be reviewed by our team and scored based on the following criteria:
- Efficiency (bonus points for parallel processing)
Kijiji is constantly recruiting talented developers in Toronto. If you think that a fast paced, fun, quirky company with a startup culture would be a good fit for you, seize the opportunity when you have the attention of the developers, and attach your resume to your email submission. This is not mandatory, and will have no effect on the contest results – but could have a very dramatic one on your career. Kijiji is a top 10 website in Canada, and a property of eBay, Inc., so the sky is the limit on advancement opportunities for those with talent and drive.
