Google is inviting eligible and interested candidates for its Kick Start Global Online Coding Competition 2022.
About Google Kick Start 2022
Kick Start is a global online coding competition, consisting of three-hour rounds of a variety of algorithmic challenges designed by Google engineers.
Participants can compete in one or all online rounds held throughout the year, and will have the opportunity to develop and grow their programming abilities while getting a glimpse into the technical skills needed for a career at Google (top participants may be invited to interview at Google).
The three-hour rounds feature a variety of algorithmic challenges, all developed by Google engineers so that you get a taste of the technical skills needed for a career at Google (the top competitors from our Kick Start rounds may be invited to interview at Google!).
Their rounds are held regularly throughout the year at different times so they are easily accessible to coders everywhere.
In addition to their online rounds, they are hosting several Coding Practice with Kick Start sessions throughout the competition season.
If you are looking for some extra practice, try these low-pressure multi-day practice sessions to learn more about our problems and platform with dedicated Google engineering support to get you ready for the next upcoming Kick Start round.
