Interview Process

Timing

The typical interview process takes 2 weeks from start to finish. This tends to be mostly based on our founder's availability. That said, we have moved more quickly and look to accommodate candidates who might have a short timeline or competing offers. The more information you can share about your situation and where you are in the process.

#1 Phone Screen

This stage is a more informal call to get to know 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 startups and motivation to help them; this is usually exhibited by past experience working at or starting one yourself.

The conversation will cover a discussion about your past projects. A good growth marketer thinks big and tests small. We expect a quick execution focus with aligning with a long-term strategy and we want to discuss this at an early stage ;)

#2 Interview with the founders

1 hour-long conversation with our founders @Stacey & @Roma The interview process is a deeper dive into your background, product thinking, and overall fit. For the “fit” portion, we are again looking for ownership and autonomy, but we also dig deeper into communication. This is evaluated throughout the process -- in how you communicate your approach, solutions, and overall thinking.

On each stage you have the opportunity to ask questions throughout ;)
