Desygner – a fast-growing martech company is hosting global hackathon in Bali to kickstart a series of “workations” in destinations popular for digital nomads.
Imagine a world where a company books an amazing destination for their employees and pays to experience life as a digital nomad in Bali. At Desygner – a fast-growing martech solution – this is a way of work-life – distinct from the usual company offsite. With its digital workforce of over 100+ employees spread across the world, Desygner seeks to set a new status quo for innovation and talent acquisition by organising a series of company-sponsored “workations” in the most sought destinations around the world for digital nomads.
The Australian company is hosting a 12-day global hackathon open for digital nomads and students from 3rd November until 11th of November 2022 at Canggu in Bali. The hackathon is all-inclusive of accommodation, meals and entertainment provided to all participants. The event is an opportunity for talented Developers, DevOps, QA professionals, marketers, designers and sales professionals to work with the Desygner team and get hired for open positions in Bali, London, and the company HQ in Gold Coast, Australia (sponsoring remote applicants).

The main objective of the initiative is to benchmark Desygner as a brand that attracts the best talent around the world and to bring innovation to remote working, steering away from the traditional notion of work being physically tied to offices or company headquarters. The company, which is growing at a fast pace, believes that the right mix of work and play can spark innovation for creating “the awesome factor”, which is a thriving culture at Desygner.
Post-pandemic, as most organisations are experimenting with hybrid and remote working models, Desygner stands to lead by example in creating better work-life experiences to attract and retain talented staff to tackle global talent crisis as they grow.
Spearheading the workation, CEO of Desygner, Alex Rich, who envisions exceptional work culture for his staff by creating unique working environments a couple of times a year in beautiful locations worldwide said, “Instead of just investing in traditional startup slacks and ping-pong tables in the office, we are going one step further and investing in places people want to work from, in dream locations”.

“When you have a software company like Desygner with over 3 million lines of code and 30+ million users, you tend to focus on the bigger strategic projects, and smaller projects get missed. Therefore, the hackathon strategy pushes us to be more innovative than the larger companies to excel,” he says.
Speaking about the idea of a hackathon in Bali, Daniel de Byl, who is a QA Automation Developer at Desygner, said, “I love working at the office, but the workation in Bali is next level. I am super excited to be part of an event like this and work with colleagues from around the world face-to-face. It’s an experience to treasure for a lifetime.”
