Our Interview Process


We don't want to ask you irrelevant trivia questions during the interview process, but we do want to learn about you:

Team Fit

If you get along with the team, you'll have more fun, be more willing to ask questions, and can solve difficult problems quicker. A bad egg can spoil the entire group, but you just might be who we need to push us to (1) use your recently-found, newest-favorite JavaScript library, and (2) take us to laser tag victory.

Passion

If you're passionate, you'll use your own time to learn new things, you'll enjoy coming to work, and you'll be more willing to start projects outside of your comfort zone. If you are a mover (for responsive design), a shaker (for mobile development), or a risk taker (for new technologies), we can't wait to hear from you.

Handle Pressure

We'll want to see you solve puzzles like you would as a team member. We might work under pressure, but we always have the support of our team.
