You’ll also represent the company at community events, conferences, and meet ups.

  • a culture fit interview to see if your values and ways of working mesh well with ours

  • a chat with Hamzah, our CEO, for any outstanding questions you or we might have

  • We'll ask to speak to 2 references of previous team mates or managers you've worked closely with

  • After the final chat, we'll move to making an offer
