Happy to provide to applicants who express interest.
Phone Screen (30 minutes) This stage is a more informal call for you to learn more about the role, and for you to evaluate whether it’s a good fit for you.
We are looking for people with a strong interest in joining an early stage startup and working on complex technical challenges in a hard industry (Construction). In this chat, you’re welcome to ask lots of questions about whether working at Agave makes sense for you.
This conversation also will cover some light technical discussion about your past projects. Mostly, we want to know that you can code and ship fairly involved systems, and speak to them with clarity on the details. This tends to be a good indication that a software developer had strong ownership and showed autonomy in making product or technical decisions.
Interview (4 hours over 1-2 days) The interview is a deeper dive into technical abilities and overall fit.
For the “fit” portion, we look for examples of ownership and autonomy, but also dig deeper into communication (i.e. how you communicate your approach, solutions, and overall thinking). We use Amazon’s Leadership Principles (LPs) to help frame our evaluation (details below). We recommend preparing examples that you can speak to in depth for each LP.
Each interview is 1 hour long, with 50 minutes allocated for the technical portion, and 10 minutes for Q&A. Each interview in more detail:
We will make decisions quickly (i.e. < 1 week) between the Phone Screen and Interview.
