Our Hiring Process

  1. Application

    All applications we receive are thoroughly evaluated by senior members of the relevant team. Evaluators will score your application and “job fit” independently, so as to not influence each other. After evaluations are cast, the hiring team re-groups to establish which candidates will progress to the next step.

  2. Written Test

    You will be provided a role-specific written test that you can complete in your spare time over the course of a week. Some positions may also require a technical challenge to test your abilities as well as give you an insight into the nature of the role.

  3. Interview with the Team

    You’ll have an online video interview with a focus on the cultural fit with our organization. Certain positions may also require technical interviews. After the interview(s), the interviewers write down their notes independently — again, so as not influence each other and subsequently help us determine the next steps.

  4. Final Interview

    As a final step in the process, you will be invited to a final interview with someone from the leadership team or a player from another team who will collaborate heavily with this role. At this stage, we look deeply into your skills, abilities and cultural fit as well as address any remaining questions we (or you) might have.

  5. Job Offer

    Congratulations! All the hard work is about to pay off and this is where we sign the agreement and drink champagne (or juice) over Zoom. This is a fantastic moment where we welcome you and celebrate you joining our Team.
