Thank you to everyone who participated in the ninth annual Rocket.Build, our first in-person hackathon since June 2019! This year, we aimed to show that within every Rocket function — Legal, Customer Experience, The People Team, Marketing, and more — there’s opportunity for innovation. And the results amazed us.

Powered by three themes — technology modernization, customer retention, and working experience — Rocket.Build 2022 hosted 500 participants from almost 20 countries, building 150 projects from more than a dozen locations around the world.

And thank you to all the Rocketeers who helped organize their community’s local Rocket.Build events. You’re a big part of why Rocket.Build continues to move on from its beginning as a modest, internal hackathon to a global experience, now at the doorstep of its tenth anniversary. We can’t wait to see you again in 2023!

Dear Partners:

Thank you for joining us at Rocket.Build 2022 and for connecting with the Rocketeers you work with daily. Your projects were unique and inspiring, and we look forward to connecting you with more Rocketeers next year during Rocket.Build’s tenth anniversary!

Dear Students:

Thank you for joining us this past November 10 for our ninth Rocket.Build. We value your creativity and hope you had fun while innovating and developing your professional lives with mentorship from Rocketeers. We’re excited to do it again with you next year for our tenth anniversary!

Powered by the successes of Rocket.Build 2021, Rocket.Build 2022 reached beyond last year’s theme of addressing complex challenges and dared to make the complex simple! With this year’s themes, we wanted you to imagine your team making a technology more seamless, enhancing a customer service feature, or creating a more welcoming workplace. What could you accomplish if you had a whole day to build?

With the theme of Technology Modernization, you showed us how you’d adapt data, applications, and infrastructure to current trends and concerns. Through Customer Retention, you built bridges that deepened the connection between Rocket and its customers with layered challenges in hybrid, cloud, software, and more. And by way of Make Rocket a Great Place to Work you uplifted the working experience. It was wonderful to witness your innovation and share Rocket.Build 2022 with you. We can’t wait to do it again next year for Rocket.Build’s tenth anniversary!
