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 technical interview (60 minutes via Zoom). During the meeting, Filip, Head of Android, will ask about your technical capabilities plus anything not covered in the pre-interview, and at the same time answers all your questions.

The next step is a technical task.

The last step will be the final interview (60 minutes) with Filip and Dave, our CTO – it’s a mix of technical and culture-fit questions.

And that’s it!
