Our Interview Process
We try to be fast and to communicate with you promptly.
From our most recent engineering hire: “GridUnity’s recruiting process was faster and friendlier than elsewhere. I could tell that you cared about me as a person and about my potential. The conversations felt more natural.”
There are no live coding exercises. Those are ridiculous and impractical.
We do want to see samples of your code. Ideally you can share links to your public repositories as part of your application, or you can send us files when we ask.
We will have casual conversations where we try to get to know you as a person. We want to know how you think, how you approach challenges, and how you work with others.
We care more about ability to learn, grow, think logically, and be creative than we do about past skills and specific languages.
We want you to ask plenty of questions, too, so that you can get an accurate sense for whether you’ll love working here.
We care about diversity.
We care about learning and improving continually, so if you ever have suggestions for us about any part of this job description or our recruiting process, we look forward to hearing them.
