Application & Onboarding

What does the recruitment process look like? 

As an equality-forward company, we ensure all candidates have the exact or extremely similar steps throughout our recruitment process. Here’s an insight into what you can expect in our application process.

  1. Contact with candidates about the open positions
  2. First interview to know each other, answer doubts and have a better idea of their soft skills
  3. Second interview technical, to check hard skills
  4. Third interview, with part of the team
  5. We make an offer to the candidate we feel is the best fit for the role
  6. On-Boarding of new employee

At each stage, we make candidates have the necessary documentation and information to hand, offer great channels for communication, and we carefully review if we would like to invite the candidate to move forward in our hiring process. 

 

What does the onboarding process look like?

From the moment you accept our offer, we’ll be on hand to answer any questions or concerns you have along the way. 

Firstly, we’ll run a standard administrative process to get to know you better. This includes details like your contract and registration to ensure we have the correct information to file. 

Next, depending on your unique needs and short-term requirements, we’ll send you a custom-built welcome pack that includes the essential materials you need, such as a laptop, screen, table, and comfortable chair. 

Will this be a remote-first position while Covid-19 is present?

Luckily, our business model never shifted as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Since we work remotely on a regular basis this won’t affect us – perhaps in the future when our company grows, an office could be highly valuable. 

If you find yourself wanting to come into the office, we provide co-working spaces where you can visit as you please – for example, twice per week or whenever you feel comfortable doing so.
