Our Hiring Process

Step 0: Apply. Candidates send a CV and optionally a cover letter or custom message. Either the hiring manager or a recruiter will review resumes. The question we ask is: Does it seem like this person WANTS to work at Auth0?

Step 1: Recruiter Screener. The screener is a Zoom conversation with someone from our recruiting team. The goal is for both the candidate to find out more about each other and us. This is not a technical interview, but mostly a high-level conversation about the candidate's experience, interest in Auth0 and the role, and expectations. We assess:

  • Auth0 knowledge
  • Remote work experience
  • Recent experience, successes/challenges, fit for the role, etc.
  • Authorization to work in the country the candidate resides

Step 2: The Interviews. There are three interview stages. Each one only takes place if the previous one went well.

  1. Hiring manager interview: This can be a mix of technical, interpersonal skills, and behavioral questions. We often go through previous experience and assess whether the candidate's values and ours align.
  2. Technical interview(s): Either one or two technical interviews. Engineers from the team the candidate has applied to and engineers from other teams will participate as interviewers.
  3. Engineering leader interview: A conversation with one of our Directors of Engineering to talk about the position, our values, direction, and culture.

Interviews in the first two stages involve a panel of two interviewers each. We want multiple Auziros to meet candidates and to give candidates the chance to meet multiple Auziros.

Over the years, we have kept our "No Live Coding" policy, which usually receives great feedback. We don't think a short live coding exercise gives us the right signals on the candidate's abilities. People get nervous, and it does not replicate real work conditions.

Step 3: The Technical Exercises. We conduct a number of exercises that are specific to the position and seniority. We aim for exercises to take 8-12 hours to complete, and we give candidates at most seven days to work on them. Each candidate approaches this differently and decides how to manage their schedule.

Step 4: Demo. After the candidate finishes the exercise, we set up a 1-hour Zoom. Candidates walk us through their design, explain how they arrived at it, and demo the working solution using any means they prefer.

During and after the demo, we will ask questions and exchange thoughts. Again, the goal is to simulate as much as possible the experience of doing a demo at Auth0 during an internal Demo Day or Sprint Review session.
