About the interview

First option: consulting agreement

In an ideal world, we'd love to work with you for a few weeks on a substantial project (maybe one of our open source projects) to feel out how the interaction is working. That way, we could both have a better sense if you are a fit with our team.

Second option: interview process

We're just getting started, so this is not yet fully defined, but it probably looks roughly like this:

  • Meeting with the hiring manager (CTO). This will not go into much technical depth, but will discuss our needs, your motivation and some of your past experience.
  • If we're both happy, we can move forward with a work sample test. You can pick your choice of a live discussion or an asynchronous assignment (which would not take more than about 3 hours).
  • Meeting with the CEO to discuss your team fit, with more behavioral questions.
  • Meeting with another engineer on the team to discuss system design.

Meetings should take at most 1 hour, with ample time for questions from your side.

Why you should join Instant Domains

Instant Domains is building a modern, mobile-first, ICANN-accredited domain registrar from scratch in Rust. We help people grow an audience that they own.
