How we review

Our recruiters will review your online application and your resume. If our recruiters feel that you are a good match for the position, the next step is to schedule a phone call. Please bring your questions as this is your chance to learn more about the role and the company. After the initial phone call with a recruiter, candidates move to the interview phase of the hiring process. You can check on an application that you've submitted.

Interview

The interview process

The interviewing process varies slightly by department, role and experience level. We've explained the differences so that nothing comes as a surprise. We involve multiple interviewers in the process, so that we can gather multiple perspectives and feedback. We strive to make the hiring committee diverse and welcoming.

For all Roles

For all Roles

Our interview process per role and department varies. However, all of our recruitment processes begin with an initial phone screen, conducted by a People & Culture Advisor or Recruiter. We assess your knowledge, skills and abilities related to the position as well as appropriate cultural fit for our organization.

We are transparent, and we will describe what to expect in each recruitment process. This information will be different for each role. We will inform you of the number of interviews and interviewees as you move through process stages.

For Developers

Phone Interview

  • A self assessment might be given before 
the phone interview. We use it to understand your skills and tailor our interview questions to your areas of strength.

  • There may be more than one phone interview with different people in the screening process.

  • You’ll likely be talking to your hiring manager or a peer that works in a similar role.

Onsite Interview
Onsite Interview
  • We aim for a single onsite visit out of respect for your time. The visit is two hours on average and up-to three hours.
 The sessions involve problem solving questions where you get a chance to collaborate on a task with your future peers.

  • We also ask standard interview questions to get a sense why you want the job and discuss your past contributions.

  • The interviewers will consist of your peers in a similar role, a hiring manager and/or director.

Homework Assignments
Homework Assignments
  • We use role-specific homework assignments. The task represents a real-world activity for that position. For example, a Software Developer role might be asked to refactor some code.

  • Software Developers in Professional Services, Reliability Engineers and Solution Consultants have assignments.

  • Solution Architects have two such assignments and discuss their solution at the onsite interview.

  • The assignments take one-hour and are sent over email. We are flexible with scheduling so it can be done at a time that is convenient to you.
