After an offer is accepted and contract signed, onboarding starts. We provide the candidate with a company email and all needed accounts, we share a "welcome kit" with the routine of work habits, and we put the candidate in touch with the training leader to coordinate their training. We also introduce the candidate to the whole company.

Every newcomer is paired with a mentor who facilitates their training and is their go-to person for anything they need help with. Newcomers are able to participate in a mentoring trip where we send them to spend 1-2 week in their mentor's city to work alongside each other and get to know each other. We also equip every newcomer with a Todoist onboarding project that includes a lot of useful resources and is used in collaboration with their mentor for task management.

On their first day all remote team members will have two onboarding calls. The first is with HR who will walk the new hire through our HR systems, team member handbook, and various other administrative items. Second, the new team member will have a call with the trainer they'll be working with during the course of their training to get the headed down the right path on their training process. Training then varies quite a bit from one role to the next. For some roles, the training process is a week long while for others it may be as much as four weeks long (or longer).
