At SpinSys, we want you to be able to solve big problems in a fun and enriching environment. You will have access to all the equipment and tools that you could want. But where to start? We’ve put together a few articles that will help you understand our culture and get you acclimated to our interview process. No matter where you’re based, or which team you work on, you’ll be part of a group of people working together to build solutions to mission-critical problems and a company that values the very best ideas. There’s a role here for you – take a moment to see where we are hiring.
Once you’ve applied to an opening, if you are qualified, you will be contacted by someone from the Talent Acquisition team for a pre-screen. This will be your chance to pre-screen us as well. The Talent Acquisition team will be your guide and friend throughout the hiring process. Ask them anything and they will give you an honest answer — hiring a cultural misfit is a lose-lose situation for everyone and we want to avoid it as much as you do.
The Interview Process
Our interview process starts with a pre-screen. This meetup will be conversational and relaxed. Expect it to last about a half hour, unless you need more time to ask questions. Calls will typically focus on your prior experiences, domain knowledge, and personal interest in joining SpinSys.
After the pre-screen, we may call you for a Zoom interview or a couple, depending on the role. Once all the interviews are complete, expect to hear from us within a reasonable amount of time so you can plan accordingly.
The Coding Interview
The goal of a coding or a technical interview is to spend a little more time trying to solve problems that are difficult to do over the phone. These interviews are typically done in person or through Skype. Whenever possible, we prefer a face to face interview. This also enables us to determine if there is a good social and cultural fit with our team.
If you’ve been busy solving big problems at your current job, you may not have had a chance to think about how to prepare for a phone interview. Rather than go in cold, take a few moments to make sure that you are well prepped. Getting through this is the first step to being invited to an onsite interview.
