Project Defense

Well done, the task went great! We'll jump on a Zoom/Google Meet video call to discuss your solution for about 30 minutes and answer your questions regarding the position.

Technical & Cultural interview (in our office)

During the first part of the interview (which will take around 1.5h), we'll go through your experience and some technical questions. If that goes well, we will proceed with the second part which is the Cultural Fit interview and it shouldn’t last longer than 1 hour. In total, we plan this step to take up between 2-2.5 hours of time.
