🤔 Our process
The starting date is as soon as possible. However, we are willing to wait for the right candidate. And will do everything to accommodate your needs.
You’ll walk through four stages:
1. Get to know each other: We use this to pitch Gigs and get you excited to join. We’ll also use this chance to see whether both our expectations align.
2. Meet the team: You’ll get to meet our team members. We value team fit over everything else. This also gives you the chance to see whether you’d enjoy working with us.
3. Technical assessment: You will send us a piece of code you’ve written before (can be a pet project or a code challenge). We’ll use that to have a conversation about which decisions you’ve taken and why.
4. Final conversation: The team and you are going to chat more about the position, what you value, what you took away from the interviews so far, and whatever is on your mind.
We are mindful of your time: Going through all stages can be done within one week. Once you’ve passed them all we will extend a formal offer.
You can also speak to one of our investors. We want to give you as many insights into us as possible. We see this as a truly two-sided decision.
