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. We value transparency and so are happy to answer (virtually) any questions you may have.
Intro to Cronofy with our Head of Talent
A 15-30 minute introductory call with Mark Harbottle, our Head of Talent. A chance to explore your CV and suitability to the role, but also for you to get to know Cronofy and understand if it's the right fit for you.
Chat with our co-founder and CTO
A 30 minute video call with Garry Shutler, our co-founder and CTO.
He’ll look to find out a bit more about you, 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.
He can also answer any questions you have about the engineering department and Cronofy as a whole.
Coding exercise and discussion
All being well, we’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 deeper technical discussion.
If you have exercises that are open source or from other roles you are applying for, we’re happy to use those if they are suitable rather than making you create something just for us.
Once we have received and reviewed your exercise we’ll schedule a call with Garry and one of our senior engineers. This gives you the chance to talk to another member of the team.
This call takes around 45 minutes.
Usually at this point we would spend 2-3 hours together in person, but depending on circumstances at the time that may not be possible and so may happen via video call. This is split into three main sections, with breaks in between, along with Garry and one of our senior engineers.
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 is 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.
Meet the team
Towards the end of the process you’ll be offered the opportunity to talk to other members of the department and company. These are optional but we like to offer them so you can ask questions of people you may end up working with day-to-day outside of the core interviewing team.
If you take up the offer, these are video calls of 15-30 minutes.
