Joining the Corgibytes Team

Thanks for sleuthing!

If you’ve made it this deep into our site, we’re excited to have you here! This is exactly the type of research and sleuthing that we like to see. We get a ton of applicants (who knew so many people liked working on legacy code?) so here’s a peek behind the digital curtain so you can see our hiring process and help yourself stand out.

What's the interview process like?

There are four interviews total.

The first two interviews will be with two members of our staff. We ask each applicant the same set of questions to help control for bias. These interviews are 30 minutes each, and about 15 minutes is provided in each for you to ask questions.

Following these interviews, if we think you’d be a good fit for Corgibytes, we’ll invite you to participate in a scenario interview. This interview will be a mob programming session to improve some existing (legacy) code. All candidates will work through the same exercise with the same set of Corgis. This session is 1.5 hours long. The final half-hour of the session is a retrospective about the entire interview process. Applicants will receive, and have an opportunity to give, candid feedback.

Finally, a fourth interview with our Chief Vision Officer is scheduled. This is similar to the first two interviews in which each applicant is asked the same questions to help control for bias. This final interview is about 30 minutes long, with plenty of time for you to ask questions.

What comes next?

If we think you’re the best candidate for the job, we will make you an offer. Of course, if we’re not a good fit for you, we get it and we will wish you all the best on your future endeavors. If we are a good fit, we’ll all celebrate with a happy Corgi dance. :)

We’ll work with you on a start date that makes sense. For lots of folks that join our team, that means turning in notice at an existing job. We try to be super flexible and respectful when it comes to this. We know most of the folks we hire care deeply about their past work and don’t want to leave without a good transition. If you need more than 2-4 weeks, let us know during your interviews so we can properly plan.

Sometimes, that goes the other way, too. As a consulting company, clients are always coming on and rolling off and scheduling can get a little tricky sometimes. If we’re not able to onboard you right away, we’ll keep in constant communication during the interim period.

Thanks for reading this! If you have any questions at all about the process, hit us up.
