Our hiring process

Before getting the job

  • Application

    1. Application

    Evaluators: 2 senior members of the relevant team

    All applications we receive are thoroughly evaluated. Evaluators will score your application and “job fit” independently, so as to not influence each other. After evaluations are cast, the hiring team holds a meeting to establish which candidates will progress to the next step.

  • Written test

    2. Short written test

    Duration: A few hours (in your spare time over the course of a week)

    Evaluators: 2 senior members of the relevant team

    You will be provided with a short role-specific written test that will need to be completed and returned within a week.

  • Cultural interview

    3. Cultural interview

These notes form the basis for the decision on whether you proceed to the next step, which could involve a second interview.

    Congratulations!

    This is where we sign the agreement and drink champagne (or juice) over Skype. This is a fantastic moment where we welcome you and tell you how excited we are that you will become our colleague.


After getting the job

  • 1. Onboarding phase – Introduction

    Duration: 3 weeks

    Our onboarding phase is 3 weeks of intensive learning, growing and settling into your exciting new job. You will have an onboarding buddy—a colleague who will help you and be there to answer your questions. You will be gradually introduced to the rest of the team, who you’ll find are supportive and willing to answer all of your questions, no matter how big or small. We will provide you with the optimal foundation to become successful in your new job—and into a position where you get to shine.

  • 2. Onboarding phase – Growth

    Duration: 3 months

    After your 3-week onboarding phase, you’re ready for the next onboarding phase. During this 3-month period, you’ll be settling further into your job, reading some literature and doing exercises on what we believe to be the secret sauce of worklife. You’ll still have an onboarding buddy to guide you, and everyone else will help and cheer you on.

  • 3. First team trip

    A team that gets together, stays together. We get together a few times each year to celebrate our achievements as well as to ideate and plan for the year ahead. At night we go out, eat great food, have fun and bond. It’s intense, but also incredibly fun.

  • 4. You grow, we grow

    Endless opportunities for professional and personal growth.
