Our typical hiring process looks like this:
Screening tests & questionnaires
Interview & resume vetting
Our hiring process is heavily focused on screening tests instead of interviews. So instead of three to five interviews that are typical for many companies, we typically just have the screening tests and two interviews.
The screening tests help us predict if you are able to solve complex problems and reason well. You will be prompted to take our screening tests as soon as you fill out the questionnaire.
The way the tests are designed is that each stage has a disqualification so that if you don’t pass, you can’t progress to the next stage.
We do not consider applicants who don’t pass our screening tests, so please be sure to make it to the end.
