What to expect in the hiring process

Initial call

Kick-off with an initial screening with one Talent Acquisition Partners, not really an interview, but the chance to learn more about how we do things, our process and a chance for you to ask all the things you want to know

Hiring Manager

A deeper dive into the role, what we're looking for and for you to get to know one another

Take home challenge or presentation

Put your skills to the test. Depending on the role, you may be asked to work on a take-home challenge or a presentation to us. We know this won't show us all of your talents, but we can get a nice insight into how you work and vice versa.

Team Meeting

In most scenarios, you’ll get to meet your teammates or a member of the leadership team. This is a great chance for us to see how you fit into the wider organisation

Meet the culture ambassadors

Our culture is unique and so are you! Check your ego at the door because these cats are not interested in whether you're the best engineer. We want to hear all about the things that get you out of bed each morning, the special interests you have or random skills that you can teach us. Now's the time to show us your authentic self, no holding back. This is also your chance to ask about the behaviours that make us who we are, warts and all - because hiring is a two-way street!
