How it works
Register for Kick Start once on our website and you’ll be set up to compete in any round you’d like! When each round is open, the three-hour countdown begins and you’ll compete on our website solving algorithmic and mathematical problems. Following the round, you can check out your rankings and the round analysis. If you were a top competitor, you may be contacted by Google for a chance to interview.
How to Enter.
Profile Creation and Contest Registration.
- (A) To enter a Contest, you must first create a profile at g.co/codingcompetitions (“Contest Profile”). Once your Contest Profile has been created, you will be able to register for Contests.
- (B) You may access each of your Contest registrations on the applicable Contest websites or through your Contest Profile.
- (C) Registration times are listed on the applicable Contest websites. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THE CORRESPONDING TIME IN YOUR TIME ZONE. You are responsible for frequently reviewing Contest details on the applicable Contest website.
- (D) You must register for each Contest before you can participate in it. For example, if you registered for Code Jam and wanted to participate in Hash Code, you would still need to register for the Hash Code Contest. Creating a Contest Profile does not constitute registering for a Contest.
