What is the hiring process?

We believe that diverse teams build better products, and strive to offer equal opportunity to all applicants. If your application is successful you will move through three short phases:

  1. We'll check your CV meets the requirements for the role, which are detailed above.

  2. We'll arrange a brief (roughly 30 minute) phone interview with you to discuss the role and your work experience 

  3. We'll invite you to our office to meet our team and take part in a 45-minute work sample task. We'll provide a laptop loaded with a project and some instructions, which will reflect the sort of work you'd be doing in the role. We'll then spend 30 minutes talking through your solution and answering any other questions you may have, and 40 minutes in a mock definition session with team members from UX, QA and Engineering. The whole visit lasts about 2 hours.

Any questions? If you have any queries whatsoever, there’s a box on the application form where you can let us know. We'll address them by e-mail or during the phone interview.
