Our process is flexible and streamlined. As we are not looking for anyone for a specific project, we don’t have specific timelines or rush. However, we are able to turn the whole process around in 1-2 weeks if needed.
One of our peeps, Ollie has written about the interview process and what he went through when looking for a position in the current market. Give his post a read for a more personalised view of our process.
But, otherwise this is how our whole process usually looks like:
Coffees or teas at our HQ: First we invite you to an informal meeting usually with Laura and Sami, our back office team for an informal “1st date”- type of situation. Remote option is available.
We ask to see some code you have made: This can be a hobby project that you have been working on or something professional. We don’t mind, as long as you feel it represents your skills. We also have a home assignment you can take a stab at.
Technical interview: This is a great chance to meet future teammates and ask them all about tech stuff. They will be interested to go through the code you sent us earlier and ask you a bunch of more technical questions.
Deliberation and offer
