Why us

Our hiring process

How we attract and engage with the very best.

We’re picky and we don’t settle for less than great

The sweet spot that our Talent Acquisition team looks for when software development talent lies in the connection between high technical level and cultural alignment. Inviting someone to join our team is the result of a meticulous yet empathetic process that starts when the candidate first gets in touch with the Octobot brand until they are hired and live the Octobot experience.

How does our recruitment process work?

1. Application

Thanks to our employer branding initiatives in the countries we operate, we receive frequent applications from skilled candidates. On top of that, our Talent Acquisition team proactively looks for professionals that fulfill our requirements and reach out to them through LinkedIn.

2. Cultural interview

Our first interview is a conversation between a member of the Talent Acquisition team and the candidate to check if the person matches our company culture. We assess their soft skills and whether or not their characteristics and behaviors are in accordance with our values.

3. English interview

In this stage, we intend to assess the candidate's English level. We take our time to make sure they can express themselves and understand the English language at a proficient level.

4. Technical evaluation

It's divided in 3 parts and led by our CTO and/or senior tech leads. The first part aims at understanding the candidate's experience and projects he's been involved in; the second is a tech architectural test; and finally, in the third part we do a live coding interview with different challenges according to the candidate's seniority.

5. Onboarding

Based on the feedback of everyone involved in this whole process, we send the approved candidate a job offer. We make sure our new team members settle quickly and with confidence through an onboarding process that can include a bootcamp, mentorship, and other induction activities.

Our employer branding initiatives capture the attention of the best candidates
