Skills we’d like to see
We understand that many companies have uncommunicative and time intensive application processes. At DEV, we strive for transparency and to move quickly. We have a three-stage hiring process for all candidates:
Stage 1: Apply Each role will have a short questionnaire as part of the application, along with a deadline. We inform all candidates on whether or not they will move to the next stage within two weeks of the application deadline. Please do not spend over an hour on this initial application.
Stage 2: Job-specific Questionnaire and/or Task Candidates will need to complete a questionnaire and/or task related to the role they are applying for. We will inform all candidates on whether or not they will move to the final stage within one week of the questionnaire/task deadline. Please do not spend over three hours on this stage.
Stage 3: Team Interview Final candidates will have one round of video interviews with 5-7 team members. Applicants will know which team members they’re speaking to ahead of time. Each interview will be 15-20 minutes each, with total interview time under two hours.
The DEV Community thrives on diversity, and inclusion is our core tenant. We believe diversity is necessary for making good decisions and building a truly global community. We have inclusive policies, training, and a code of conduct driven by the interest in making all teammates feel welcome.
By demonstrating our values and getting involved in diverse communities from our very founding, we ensure we find candidates from all backgrounds. By having diverse interviewees and blind evaluation steps within our hiring process, we remove some of the bias that can plague software companies. We also thoroughly examine our interview process for elements that could be unduly disadvantageous for minoritized individuals who may apply.
