INTERVIEW PROCESS

Step 1: Initial Screening Call (15 minutes) with potential candidates to ensure you are clear on the salary posted, the hiring timeline, and learn more about why you are interested in working at Lullabot. Screening calls typically consist of 6-7 questions (always the same questions across a single job posting), there are no names attached (use of numbers), and after a screening is complete it is reviewed by the hiring manager and HR to determine if the candidate will be invited for a technical interview. We do not require video for these calls.

Step 2: 60 minute technical interview over Zoom with the hiring manager, a peer within the same job title or team, and a member of HR. This is a structured interview where all candidates will be asked the same questions in the same order, with the goal of determining the depth of your knowledge, skills, and abilities. You can expect around 10 questions to be asked, and this is intended to be a conversation about your related experience—there are no tests or assignments to complete. Tell us about yourself and what you’re good at! Share what you still need to learn! Ok answers include, "I don't know." We are all works in progress. 

Step 3: Anonymous code review. Members of our team will review the code samples you submitted with your application--without your name attached whenever possible.

Step 4: 90 minute core values interview over Zoom with the hiring manager and a member of HR and/or the leadership team. This is a behavioral interview where all candidates will be asked the same questions in the same order, with the goal of gaining an understanding of how you work within a team, how you problem-solve, your work habits, your communication style, etc. Tell us about what will make you successful in this position! Describe how you’d contribute a different perspective to the team! We’re a friendly group of life-long learners who love to support and encourage each other.

After the final decision is made, any offer of employment is extended via email or phone call. Once the official offer is accepted and signed, you’ll be assigned a “Lullabuddy” for the first 3 months of employment. This is a peer who is there to support you and help you navigate all the new things you may have questions about as the newest Lullabot on the team.
