Our Hiring Process

Step 1: A Background Interview

After you have applied, and we have reviewed your application, we may do a quick 15-30 minute video call with a member of the team, to assess whether there is a mutual fit and interest. During this call, we will ask some basic questions about your background. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well.

Step 2: A One-on-One

The next step in the process is a one-on-one interview with our Chief Architect to discuss your knowledge, experience, and past projects. This will let you get into great detail about your prior work that the author of this webpage couldn’t dream to understand (though he pretends to sometimes).

It’s an opportunity to brag about yourself and your prior accomplishments, and the lessons you’ve learned.

Don’t be humble. It’s an opportunity to brag about yourself and your prior accomplishments, and the lessons you’ve learned. It’s also an opportunity to learn all about us and what you’d be building.

Step 3: Take Home Assignment + Followup

The next step in the process is a take home assignment. Show us what you can do! The challenge is not make work, but is a real assessment of a problem we are currently facing.

After you’ve completed the work, several members of the engineering team will discuss it with you, and give you an opportunity to discuss your work. You also will get to ask us any additional questions you may have.

We love this interview because it gives you a sense of what you will be working on, and gives us a sense of whether your skills are the right fit.

Step 4: Panel Interview

The next step is a panel interview, where you will get to meet with several teammates at once.

This interview is a structured behavioral interview. That means we are going to ask you questions about your past experiences. We will ask questions like “Tell us about an example of a time where you surprised or thrilled someone with your work?” or “Tell us about a time when you had to change priorities quickly.” We are not going to ask you to speculate on some hypothetical “how many golf balls fit in a DAO” question.

The best way to prepare is to come with good stories about accomplishments you are proud of and failures you’ve learned from.

We want to know about your past experiences - good and bad. The best way to prepare is to come with good stories about accomplishments you are proud of and failures you’ve learned from. Bonus points if those stories relate to the job description and our company values. The interview will take an hour and 15 minutes. and you will have a chance to ask questions at the end.

We love this interview because it is proven to remove bias from the interview process and focus on the areas of your background that matter most for the job and for our company values.

Step 5: References.

Finally, we will be checking references. No matter how well we interview, we can’t possibly know you as well as your references do.

Optional: You Interview Us

After Step 5, we will extend (hopefully you) our offer. Before you accept, is there anyone else you want to meet? Are there team members you want to talk to again, in more detail? If so, we want to give you that opportunity.

That’s It!

That’s it. We try to move fast, in a very intentional way. We’re convinced this process allows you to figure out whether we are a good fit for your career, and vice versa. It does so in a way that allows your background to shine, removes bias, and prevents you from having the same conversation multiple times.
