If it seems that we are a good fit for each other, we will set a call! The goal is to give you more details about the team, our mission, the duties of the role you are applying for and, more than anything else, get the chance to hear about your trajectory. This should take 45 minutes.

Next, you will meet some of your peers to deep dive into the team and the product, so you will be able to share your experience about what was achieved, the techniques you applied, and the trade-offs that were made.

We’ll let you know how things went in less than a week! If it still seems like a good fit all around, we’ll share a challenge that is expected to be completed within one (1) week. You will get a description of the expectations in terms of deliverables and the way those will be presented.

Last but not least, you might get an additional call from other relevant stakeholders for a half an hour conversation regarding communication, collaboration, and other relevant points from previous conversations.

At this point, you will get an offer letter! If not, we will let you know at any stage of the process, so you aren’t left hanging.

Not sure if you’d be the right fit? Apply anyway! We’d love to know more about you and have an open conversation in respect to how we can grow together.
