Application Process

Our hiring process consists of four steps:

  1. Use the below form to submit your resume, cover letter and a link to Github (or similar portfolio of your code) or send an email to jobs -at- weeverapps.com
  2. Initial call
  3. Technical Screen
  4. Final Interview

We start with an initial call in order to answer any initial questions you may have about us and to discuss your experience. The technical screen can be completed either in-person or remotely at your leisure. We don’t want to take up much of your time!

The in-person screen is prescriptive: write some code to make a suite of tests pass and should take less than an hour. The take-home is less prescriptive and designed to be a small, short project to be completed at your own pace within a few hours at most (or more if you need it, there are no hard limitations).

We use the results of the technical screen as a barometer for the final interview. We don’t do any whiteboarding or other hazing rituals in the final interview. We only use the technical screen to cater the technical depth of the final interview to your skill level.

We’re pretty quick to follow up, potentially with an offer, within a day or two of the final interview.

We prefer candidates from all members of the community, including those from under-represented groups. If you have any requests or questions about our hiring practices we’d appreciate hearing from you. Please let us know if you have any special requirements to accommodate the situations of your application or employment with us.

We value the innovation, ownership and creative thinking of the staff in all departments and how that can improve the company as a whole. Make your mark at Weever Apps!
