Who we are
New Things Co was founded in 2017 together with our friends from Reaktor. Currently we have a team of 25 people, both developers and designers all of whom are multitalented generalists with their individual areas of focus. We’re united by our common passion for learning new things and building meaningful digital products from scratch.
In 2021 we joined our friends at Witted to form an ecosystem of the future.
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:
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 discussion: 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
