Interview process

In our initial introduction call, there are 10 questions from the team that I will ask, and we'll use a shared Google Doc for you to type in your answers. These questions are around your own experience with the technologies related to the role.

In the next step, you will have a phone interview with a senior member of our team, and for certain roles, we'll include a video conference for a shared screen coding exercise.

For the on-site interview, you will interview with a senior member of the team for a pair programming session, one of our Product Managers on workflow, and the hiring manager for another deep technical session.

If you're here over lunchtime, you will have lunch with members of the team, and lastly, you will wrap up with your recruiter!
