We focus our activities on positive candidate experience, and divide the recruitment process into two main stages.

Stage 1: Meetings with our Team

During the interview, we’ll ask you about your background, technologies you used, motivation, and what direction you want to progress in your career. We will also tell you about our projects, internal initiatives, and opportunities, and give as much time for questions as you need.

Сonversation with our technical interviewer

After the Recruitment meeting, we move directly to the discussion with a tech interviewer. You can expect to hear some technical questions regarding specific technology, algorithmic challenges, and problem-solving tasks. We’d also like to know what you are curious about programming, and what new languages, frameworks, or tools you’d like to learn.

Stage 2: Feedback and Job Offer
At this stage we talk everything in detail and finalize the recruitment process.
Feedback

We’ll provide you with feedback within 2-7 days — terms depend on the complexity of the selection for the position.
