Our Hiring Process
At our company, we have developed a hiring process that prioritises finding the right fit for both the individual and the organisation. We understand that hiring based on values and cultural alignment is just as crucial as assessing technical skills.
- Initial Contact: Once we identify potential candidates, we reach out to them through this platform or via email to initiate communication. We believe in providing a seamless and convenient experience from the very beginning.
- Next step - Interview: We schedule an initial interview, which can be conducted virtually or at our office, depending on the circumstances. During this interview, we focus on getting to know the candidate, understanding their career aspirations, and assessing their values and what is important to them. We aim to create an open and transparent dialogue to gauge mutual compatibility.
- Final step - Technical Interview: Following the initial interview, we move forward with a technical interview. This interview involves senior team members who are experienced in the specific area relevant to the role. The technical interview is designed to efficiently evaluate the candidate's skills and competencies in their field. We prioritise a streamlined and effective process that focuses on assessing technical proficiency.
