The Interview Process

The process is straightforward and has 3 main stages. You'll be pleased to hear there's not a take-home test and the whole process can be done remotely if necessary.

It begins with an initial and very informal introduction call with the recruiter. From there if we both agree there's a good match, you'll have a 1-hour fact-finding/fairly technical meeting with two members of the tech team. If both sides agree to progress from here this will be followed by a final meeting with another two members of the engineering team. This stage will include a pair programming exercise.
