Innovative ideas, continuous improvement, and people can make things happen for any organization.

Event Overview

On September 25th – 27th, 2018, CMG Technology business analysts, designers, developers, and engineers will take part in the third annual CMGT Hackathon. Teams participating in the Hackathon will have 24 hours to ideate, design, and prototype a digital products or operational optimization that solves challenging and important problems in Media. Their work will be presented to panels of expert judges and an audience of Cox Media Group personnel and invited guests. Two prizes will be awarded by the panel of judges, 1st place and 2nd place awards.  The audience will vote in real-time to decide the winner of the “People’s Choice” award.

The organizing committee for the hackathon embodies the type of public-private partnership that Cox Media Group needs to rise to the challenge to produce more technology solutions with an increasingly competitive industry.

2018 Organizing Committee
Cox Media Group Executives

“The CMGt Hackathon encourages our employees to step away from their daily routines and focus exclusively on creativity. The ideas that come out of our Hackathon are fascinating. We have a great track record of incorporating most ideas into our existing roadmaps and projects. It’s also a celebration of employee engagement and a chance to have some fun!” – Bala Sundaramoorthy – Executive Director, Consumer Systems @ Cox Media Group Technology.


“This event was designed to support two key CMGt strategic priorities – innovation and culture. This is an opportunity for the team to rally around our overall vision and to present their ideas to an esteemed panel of judges. The outcome (success/failure) is less important than the process and the opportunity to work together in this way. Although, by the end of the event, we always come away with very good ideas that are implemented as we move forward.” – Mark Beck – VP, Technology @ Cox Media Group.
