What is your Interview process like?

1st round - HR Phone Interview, 2nd round technical phone interview, 3rd round onsite interview

What efforts are you making in terms of increasing diversity & inclusion within your company?

We’ve made significant progress with tech and product team hiring from a D&I perspective in the last year. When I was creating and revamping our recruitment process, it gave me the opportunity to evaluate how we should be thinking about D&I when speaking with candidates and hiring managers. We hired seven women engineers on our tech team in the past year, and have prioritized attending more diversity-oriented hiring events, such as WomenHack. We’ll continue to work to remove bias in each step of the hiring process, knowing that we still have a lot of work to do. D&I efforts will continue to be a main priority for me and the Insider Inc. hiring team as a whole in 2020.
