The Application process

Our most usual application and selection process looks like this:


based on your LinkedIn profile or CV. We are interested in your experience and roles on previous projects, your motivation, and your drivers, not just your skills. You’ll have a lot of opportunities anyway for learning and building up your skills.

Intro call

where you get a chance to meet up with our People and Culture team member and either the hiring manager or one of the seniors from the team. Since this is our first date, and expectations go both ways, we want to answer all thernimportant questions.


usually follows up after the Intro call, and it allows us to get deeper into the technical side, as well as your way of thinking. There is no perfect solution, only the right attitude – so simply do your best!

Technical interview

is our second date where we discuss the task, pick your brain around it, and learn how you approached the task and the challenges you might have encountered. Also, this is the right time and place to ask any unanswered questions we both might have, as we really want to make sure it feels like the best match on both ends.


is our favorite date, especially if it is a green light on both ends because we get to seal the deal with our offer, pop up the champagne, and send you the Welcome to Huddle email shortly afterward.
