Hiring Process:

Our typical hiring process looks like this:

  • Screening tests & questionnaires
  • Test task
  • Interviews

Our hiring process is heavily focused on screening tests instead of interviews. So instead of the three to five interviews that are typical for many companies, we typically just have two interviews and the screening tests.

 

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.

 

You cannot take a break mid-test, but you can take a break in between tests and come back.

Tests:

  • Javascript Test (±10 min)
  • Python Test (±15 min)
  • Logic Puzzle (±25 min)
  • Logic Passages (±20 min)
  • Logic Passages 2 (±25 min)

In total, this should take around one hour and a half to complete, but keep in mind that these replace one to two interviews which would otherwise take place.

 

In order to be hired by our company, all of these tests must be successfully completed and you must pass our minimum scoring threshold for each section.

 

If you're up for the challenge, then we invite you to apply!  

 

Note: Please complete the application and pre-screening within seven days of starting or you will be automatically disqualified. If you can't take it within seven days, email us and we will give you a time extension.
