After Hours: The IT Community Events for Tech Talent Growth,

The After Hours Mission



At The Recursive, we want to showcase companies that not only add value to their local economies in Southeast Europe but also create a culture in which employees can thrive. This is why we created After Hours, supported by BICA and Anthill.

After Hours is our monthly series of quality hybrid events which aims to explore and debunk everything regarding tech talent, company culture, organizational development, and IT career development in the local innovation ecosystems. In the form of panel-like informal discussions, moderated by one of The Recursive hosts, we invite business leaders, IT professionals, and aspiring talents, but also HR managers from tech companies in the region.

Talent development stays at the core of the future ecosystem success and After Hours is on a mission to put it for discussion from all angles.
