The Annual Ulster Bank Hackathon


Ulster Bank is excited to announce its annual Hackathon, in partnership with Dogpatch Labs.


The brief is to deliver innovative solutions around themes of financial services to enable ‘open banking’. Open banking is the vision that banks are transforming from relatively closed IT structures to structures that are more ‘open’, connected and better able to communicate with each other. This will lead to improved levels of service by enriching the bank's capability with a whole range of targeted niche solutions in addition to broader personal financial management capability.

3 themes

Attending hackers will focus on three propositions: home buying and ownership, the business of banking, and Ulster Bank start-up (an internal employee category as part of the bank’s intrapreneurship programme).

Participants will have access to a host of supports at Dogpatch Labs, including rich and wide-ranging APIs, engineering support, industry mentors (including support from Microsoft, Nile and ViewsDX), and pitching workshops so that they can not only imagine and create groundbreaking solutions, but they can also communicate these to the judges.
