We are delighted to announce that the first of our Gold Sponsors is Esendex, sponsoring Hack24 for the fourth year!

A popular and large employer in Nottingham, Esendex is a mobile business communication provider helping thousands of business communicate with their customers globally with offices located in Nottingham, Barcelona and Melbourne. Founded in 2001 with the mission of delivering fast, reliable and secure SMS services, Esendex have gone on to develop additional communication channels such as Voice and Email which, when coupled with intelligent automation enable a low-touch, highly effective multichannel messaging strategy. From the significant investment in people and technology infrastructure, to 24/7 monitoring of their platforms, they are able to give complete peace of mind to customers who share one objective - to improve the way in which businesses communicate.

Oh and they regularly buy ALL the doughnuts. 

The team at Esendex are long time supporters of the local tech community, both sponsoring, attending and speaking at meetups in the area. We are really excited that they are sponsoring Hack24 again!

As ever, they'll be putting forward a challenge with an enticing prize, details of which will follow soon. To whet your appetite, last year's Esendex challenge was

"Make way Millennials, Generation Z are coming! Known as ‘the most difficult generation to engage with’, in just a few years, Generation Z will be taking the next step in their life journey.  So here's the challenge. As a business operating in the UK, how do you send a critical message to a Gen Z, know they've got it and reduce the chances of them ignoring it?"

and the winners were team Hey Pesto! with 'We Like To Party':

The entire team at Esendex is very proud that we’re supporting Hack24 for the fourth year running, having been involved in supporting the event since it started. As someone who manages developers for a living I’m very conscious of the fine balance between the creative and technical aspects of software development. An event like Hack24 allows us to recognise, support and celebrate that balance. Whether as sponsors, challenge setters, judges, entrants, volunteers or enthusiastic bystanders, everyone at Esendex is involved in Hack24 in some way and recognises how the atmosphere at the event resembles the culture and atmosphere we see every day at Esendex.

Esendex is a tech employer of choice in the Nottingham area and supporting organisations like Tech Nottingham and Hack24 is one way we can give back to the community that provides so much talent, enthusiasm and skills to our engineering teams.
