VanHack is all about our community, and we are always getting recommendations from VanHackers who tell their friends about us. But did you know that you have a way to invite your friends and earn $500 CAD when they get hired by a VanHack partner? Yes, we have paid out CAD14,000 in prizes!

Meet VanHack’s Invite a Friend Program.

How does it work?

The way the program works is pretty simple. The first thing you need to do is to login, then access the Invite a Friend Page. It can be found on the top menu of our platform.

On this page, you will find your unique invite link. Every VanHacker has one – but you need to be logged in to get yours. Through this unique link, we will be able to track your invited friends and reward you when they get hired.

You can invite friends by either sharing your invite link directly with your friends or on social networks, or by clicking on the share icon and typing your friends’ email addresses. Your friends will then receive an email saying that you are inviting them to join VanHack.

If any of your invited friends create a VanHack profile and get hired by a VanHack partner, you will earn $500 CAD for having invited them. Good deal, right?

To keep track of your invites and know if any of your friends have been hired yet, check the “See invited friends” tab on the Invite a Friend page.

There you can also see if they haven’t signed up to VanHack yet (and gently remind them to do so!).

More than 5,000 people have joined Vanhack this years via Referral ProgramAre you ready to get started?

Which friends should I invite?

VanHack is a platform for IT professionals who are looking to get a job abroad, so you should invite friends, coworkers and relatives who also work in IT. If you invite friends who are not IT professionals, they won’t find a job and you won’t get the reward. 

Why invite friends to VanHack?

If you’ve been a VanHacker for a while, you have probably heard of this program in the past. What you may not know yet is that we have recently increased the bonus from $150 CAD to $500 CAD – that’s an over 30% increase in the value of the reward!

And we all know that teaming up with a friend to pursue the dream of getting a job abroad can make the journey more fun!

It is a win-win situation. Your friend gets a job abroad and starts a new chapter in their life, and you get paid just by inviting them. So, if you know other tech talents who are looking for a job abroad, invite them to VanHack using your unique link today.
