Summary

WHO ARE WE?

We are first and foremost a financial service company, but we also see ourselves as leading technologists.

WHAT DO WE DO?

We build software solutions that make our clients’ and our own lives easier.

WHAT TECH DO WE USE?

Our environment contains a diverse range of technologies. The backend language of choice at the moment is Scala and we are evaluating our front-end stack.

We are redoing our architecture and aiming to build Microservices hosted on containers and exposing REST-like APIs.

We have traditionally been a .NET development shop however we have decided to adopt a more open stack.

We generally look for full-stack developers who are tech agnostic and would prefer to use the right tool for the job.

We use Agile best practices and frameworks such as Scrum, TDD, Continuous Integration etc.

WHAT DOES OUR INTERVIEW PROCESS LOOK LIKE?

Our interview process is role dependent, but all of them take some time - on average two weeks from engagement to offer (this also depends on how quickly you respond to requests)
The typical interview process for a developer is:

  1. Telephonic interview (30 minutes)
  2. Coding assignment (3 hours) - at home in your own time
  3. Technical face to face interview (1 hour ) and soft skills face to face interview (1 hour )
  4. Psychometric tests (3 hours) - Completed online in your own time

The total time is approximately 8 hours and 30 minutes. We realise this is quite a commitment, but we believe that each interaction also allows you to decide whether or not Allan Gray is the right place for you.
