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 hiring new people 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

The candidate applies in our Careers page or we reach out proactively to them. Our recruiters are constantly looking for potential talent through LinkedIn. When there’s an interest from both parties, the first step is an initial evaluation of the candidate’s skills.

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

This second call intends 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 interview

Here we want to get to know the candidate’s seniority and skill set. In the case of junior developers, the call is centered around a practical test that is sent to the candidate prior to the interview. This conversation is led by our CTO and/or a technical leader.

5. Team definition

Our clients can interview the final candidates themselves. Based on the feedback of everyone involved, we send the approved candidate a job offer. We make sure our new team members settle quickly and with confidence through an onboarding process.

Our employer branding initiatives capture the attention of the best candidates
