We want our candidates to have the best possible interview experience because this is as much about you finding the right fit as it is us finding a great new addition to the team. We value candidates from all backgrounds and experiences and want our interview process to be representative of that. Here is what you can expect:
Application review. Our application involves more questions up front so that we can get to know you better right from the get-go
Round 1: hiring manager interview with the Head of Engineering
Round 2: a short (90 minute) take-home that is meant to mimic real-life work and provide fodder for a synchronous technical conversation.
Round 3: Team interview covering your technical experience and talking through your take-home submission
Round 4: Team interview covering your core skills around communication, mentorship, and feedback
Round 5: wrap up. This is primarily a chance for you to ask any final questions you have about the role, team, or company.
We provide feedback for any candidate that participated in round 1 and beyond so that if Forem isn’t a good fit, you know why.
