BNY Mellon Goes Major League with Campus Tech Recruitment


Major League Hacking (MLH), the official collegiate hackathon league, hosts more than 200 events annually that draw more than 65,000 computer science majors and other aspiring technologists. BNY Mellon first partnered with MLH last year to identify and recruit the next generation of tech talent to join our company.

“We’re not a retail bank, so people aren’t always familiar with the work we do,” said Marco Campana, BNY Mellon Head of Technology Campus Services. “Hackathons are a great way to introduce ourselves and show bright students that their technology skills and ideas are welcome at BNY Mellon.”

During a hackathon, participants are presented with a business problem to collaborate on and solve creatively within a given timeframe. Typical on-campus events begin Friday evening and run around-the-clock for the next 36 hours. On Sunday morning, students present their solutions before a panel of judges.

BNY Mellon campus recruiters receive participants’ resumes and access to their LinkedIn profiles, and during the event, can assess candidates’ skills through a coding challenge. Last fall, BNY Mellon participated in hackathons at Cornell University in New York; Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; Vanderbilt University in Tennessee; and Penn State University in Pennsylvania. The spring 2018 hackathon season will take recruiters to the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania and New York University in New York City.

Through strategic on-campus recruiting like this, partnerships with Major League Hacking and other organizations, and a commitment to furthering diversity in technology, BNY Mellon continues to build a formidable team of technologists to help shape the future of financial services.
