Our interview process
Our goal is that you meet as many people as possible during the process, so that you and we get a good impression from each other. Note: this whole process can also happen remotely if necessary.
Here’s how we usually do it:
1. Video call via WhereBy or Zoom with two of us about:
- Your work experience
- What you are looking for
- Your questions
2. Interview in our office in Berlin (or remote)
- We will welcome you and show you around
- Two of us will talk with you about how you’d like to work and answers your questions
- For design candidates: then you present the design task you’ve solved to our designers
- For dev candidates: then you pair program with us to build something close to the things you might work on (bring your laptop if you want to work on a familiar environment!)
- One of us who you haven’t talked to by then will take you out for lunch
- Finally we‘ll talk about your experience during the interview day
3. Time to reflect
Work is a huge part of everyone’s life. Some people have even left their home country for the first time to work with us. Changing jobs is a big decision and shouldn’t be made in a day.
Therefore we’ll say goodbye after the interview day and both sides have time to reflect on the experience of getting to know each other.
4. Final Talks
A couple of days later we’ll contact you. Usually it doesn’t take longer than a week for us to make a decision.
In case you are also still interested and excited about joining us like we are about you joining, we’ll have follow up calls or meetings about salary and other open questions.
Finally, once we have a signed contract, we can’t wait for you to join us! 👯♀️
Not from Berlin?
If you don’t live in Berlin, we usually fly you in and try to get you a room close to our office. Don’t worry, we’ll pay for it. 🙂
