The Recruitment Process Stages

Before we get started, it’s important to understand the general stages of our process. Overall, the process typically lasts between 3 – 4 weeks. While we strive to move efficiently, we also appreciate your patience as things can get busy on our end. We tried to outline the process on a high level here. In case you have any further questions your recruiter will be happy to hear from you and guide you through the process.

Across companies, our process usually unfolds in the following steps:

  1. Talent Acquisition Interview
  2. Meet the Hiring Manager
  3. Skill assessment through a Case Study
  4. Meet the Team
  5. Reference Check

These steps are designed to help us get to know each other better and ensure the best possible fit for both parties. The typical format of our interviews is a Google Meet videocall. We try to keep our interview atmosphere casual but professional. Our interviewers are genuinely interested in getting to know you better in a rather relaxed set up.


For every step of the process, please ensure your technical setup is reliable. Test your internet connection, camera, and microphone beforehand. Choose a quiet, well-lit space for the interview and minimize potential distractions.

Talent Acquisition Interview

Let’s embark on the first step of our journey: Talent Acquisition Interview! This is where the magic begins, as we dive into getting to know you better and exploring how you can make a significant impact on our team. This is the stage where we’ll discuss your background, aspirations, and how you can bring your unique talents to

  2. Reflect on Your Journey Take some time to reflect on your professional journey and how it aligns with the role and our company culture. Consider how your experiences and skills can contribute to our team’s success. We advise you to think about specific examples that highlight your skills most relevant to the role, your accomplishments, and problem-solving abilities. We generally like when our colleagues take initiative and execute. This is a behavior we often look for on the first round already through past examples. During the interview, aim to articulate these experiences clearly and concisely, using the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action, Result) to structure your responses effectively.
  3. Review the job description again and reflect on how your skills and experiences align with what we’re looking for.
  4. Be prepared to ask questions about the role, team dynamics, and company culture. We want to ensure you get the necessary information about us too to decide if you want to join us. 🙂

Hiring Manager Interview

Let’s venture into the next significant phase: the Hiring Manager Interview! This stage puts you face-to-face with your potential direct manager. Here, they’re eager to understand your role-related functional skills better and assess the value you bring to our team. We also want to explore how our company fits into your career vision and how you plan to grow with us.

This meeting is more than just a discussion about roles and responsibilities – it’s an opportunity for Hiring Managers to connect with you on a personal level. So, be yourself and let your authentic self shine through!

This conversation typically lasts about 60 minutes.

Here are some pro tips to help you ace this interview

  1. Tell your story! Think about memorable experiences that highlight your skills and problem-solving approach. Utilize the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action, Result) again to structure your examples effectively. Be aware that the Hiring Manager might ask behavioural questions throughout the interview.
  2. Review the role description and try to imagine yourself contributing already in the role. Think about what are the essential skills that will make you succeed and how can you showcase them through past examples.
  3. We highly encourage dialogue, so don’t hesitate to come prepared with any questions you might have, ranging from company dynamics to job-specific inquiries. Keep in mind that the Hiring Manager holds all the insights.

Case Study Assessment

The Case Study Assessment is a pivotal stage in our recruitment process, allowing us to evaluate your role-related functional skills and problem-solving abilities. It involves an offline written assessment or task relevant to the role you’re applying for, often followed by a presentation to our team. For example in case you are a software engineer then this round is typically a take home coding challenge; if you are a marketer then we are likely to ask you to come up with a quick marketing strategy. We try to keep our Case assignments practical, interesting and similar to real-world challenges you’ll face in the role.

During the Case Study Assessment, we’re interested in understanding how you analyze complex issues, evaluate alternatives, and formulate effective solutions. It’s an opportunity for you to showcase your expertise and demonstrate how you can contribute to our team.

This stage usually takes up to 3-4 hours of your time.

Cultural / Team Interview

Congratulations, you’ve reached one of the most thrilling stage in our process – the Cultural / Team Interview! You’ve made it to the final interview step, and now it’s time to meet your future teammates, who play an integral role in our company.

During this session, the goal is to help you see how well we can work together, and see if you can picture yourself fitting right in!

Your potential future colleagues will explore in depth your values, working style, and how they align with our company ethos.

This conversation typically lasts about 30-60 minutes.

Here are some tips to help you get ready for your interview 🎉

  • Ensure Your Technical Setup: Make sure your technical setup is reliable.
  • Reflect on our company values and culture, embodying Accountability, Independence, Honesty, and Courage.
  • Consider examples from your past experiences that demonstrate your cultural fit and addition. Why do you think the team will be better with you than without you?
  • Be yourself! This interview is about mutual understanding and alignment.
  • Gather information: you can clear any remaining question about work routines, the role expectations and other details that you need to know about us.

Reference Check

The last stop before we offer you a spot on our team is the reference check stage. Usually at this point we already have a near-final decision. If you reached this stage it is a good sign 😉 We usually ask for contacts to two of your past Managers or colleagues you’ve worked with closely. It’d be great if you could share their LinkedIn profiles, email addresses, or phone numbers and let them know that we would like to talk to them shortly.

Just so you know, this step isn’t about finding flaws in your past work. It’s more about making sure we’re all set to work together smoothly and we can set you up for success early on. Your future manager will be interested in understanding what works for you, how to plan your onboarding, what are your preferences etc. References help us get a better picture of your skills and personality, so we can make sure it’s a good fit for everyone involved.

Welcome to the Team: Offer Extension!

You’ve successfully completed our recruitment process, and we’re thrilled to extend an offer to you! Here’s what’s next:

After completing the reference check, your offer will be presented to our board for a final approval. Once approved, we’ll arrange a call to discuss the details of the offer together. This conversation provides an opportunity for you to ask any remaining questions about the role or our company culture.
