Recruitment Process

Firstly, you will be invited for a 30-minute pre-interview via Zoom. We usually ask about your previous experience, future career path and motivation for changing your job, as well as provide you with more details about our projects and working in our team.

If the interview goes well, we will invite you to a second step – a 60-minute technical call with Filip and a colleague from the QA team.

The final step would be an interview (30 minutes) with Dave, our Technical Director and Filip – it’s a mix of technical and culture-fit questions.

And that’s it!
