How does your remote company's hiring process for remote jobs look like?
We conduct all interviews via video conference using Zoom.
Your recruiter will communicate with you exclusively via email and Zoom. We do not use phones.
Our interview process varies slightly based on role, but in general involves the following steps: HR Interview, Technical Challenge, Team Interview, Hiring Manager Interview, Outcome Call.
Note: We understand that interviewing is a two-way street. You are welcome to ask questions to any of your interviewers. We love questions - they show your curiosity! We do ask, however, that you save your remuneration questions for the HR team.
If at any point in the interview process the team decides you are not a fit for the role, we will promptly notify you of your status.
We invite candidates who make it to the final stages of our interview process to share their feedback with us via an anonymous survey.
Does your remote team meet in person?
We have two annual offsites: one with the whole company and one with your team.
The main objective of the whole company offsite is for us to connect and bond in person. Each year we choose a new global destination - often somewhere where we can explore an innovative payment system. For example, in 2018 we went to Kenya and had a special activity using M-Pesa, a mobile money service.
The purpose of the team offsite is to review the past year, plan for the next year, and work as a team in person. The locations of the team offsites also change every year, and each team goes somewhere different.
