Our Hiring Process

Our hiring process has 3 phases:

  1. We'll start off with a quick phone/skype introduction session to get to know you a little better and get clarity on your skills base and work history. Most importantly we want to make sure that we are a match in terms of what you are looking for and what we need. ~30min
  2. We will do a face-to-face interview where the team has the opportunity to quiz you on a technical and social level. You can expect to get technical questions thrown in here and will work through some trivial problem solving on a whiteboard. ~2hrs
  3. You don't really know anyone until you have written some code together. This is your moment to truly shine. So finally, we would expect to do some work together. This would be some real-life work to be tackled together with a team member. This is going to take some time; time is money; but if you've made it this far, we think that you are worth both! So this will be a paid piece of work. ~8hrs
