The goal is to discover what you will bring to Cronofy and what Cronofy will bring to you. It's as important for you to determine whether this is the right move for your career as much as anything else, so don't be afraid to ask questions.
During a 30 minute video call we’ll get to know each other a little. I’ll look to find out what you’re looking for in your next role as part of your career progression, your approach to growing software in a holistic sense, and the kind of support you need to do your best work.
You’ll have chance to ask any questions you may have about the role, the team, or the company. Please feel free to ask absolutely anything, in the worst case I won’t be able to answer specifically due to confidentiality or similar, but I’ll at least be able to give a holistic answer.
Coding exercise and discussion
All being well, I’ll ask you to do a coding exercise which shouldn’t take more than 60 minutes. It’s not about building a complete product, as much as a conversation starter for a second 30 minute call together where we’ll get a bit more technical.Link shortener
Meet the team
From there, you’ll be invited to talk to other people from the team, similarly video calls of 15-30 minutes. These are as much for you to get a feel for the team, as for the team to provide feedback about you. I’d like you to speak to at least two people, but you can speak to as many as you need to feel comfortable that it’s a team you want to join. Like all stages this is a two-way conversation so you are free to interview them too.
Usually at this point we would spend a morning or afternoon together, in current circumstances that’s not possible. Instead, we’d look to schedule a call split into three main sections, with breaks in between, along with Adam Bird, our CEO and co-founder. Those sections are:
- Work history - this helps us better understand your professional background
- A “whiteboard discussion” - this gives us another example of how well you communicate - in-person this was you describing how a system you were familiar with worked, in a remote environment that might be a prepared presentation or image(s) shared before the call, whatever you are comfortable with
- Culture fit - this helps us understand what you would bring to Cronofy and what Cronofy would bring to you, and see if those are aligned to each of our desires
For successful candidates, we will extend an offer conditional on reference and background checks.
At some point throughout this process, if possible, I would like to meet you in a suitably physically-distanced manner to make at least part of this process 3D.
