Organization and methodologies
The engineering teams are organized into cross-functional squads by pillar (with alignment to the business) and systems.
Their work is planned in a quarterly roadmap process that aligns product and engineering, and most squads use scrum rituals with pair-programming in a 2-week delivery cadence. Team ceremonies normally include dailies, and bi-weekly sprint reviews.
Our agile coaches provide 3 training cycles per year. We also provide ad-hoc trainings/games and semester-long coaching missions. Our management practice empowers teams to try, fail, and learn together supporting that Agile mindset. Performance is evaluated twice a year, and OKRs are used to set diverse goals.
Screening call The goal of our first interview is to get to know the candidate, understand their expectations, motivational drivers and check administrative details. It's also their chance to learn more about the recruitment process, the company, the team and the position.
Hiring Manager Interview It is a deeper dive into their experience, when you can expect more technical questions. The Hiring Manager will also be able to tell you further details about the role and provide information about the expectations of the team.
Online assessment In this phase they’ll receive either a test or a case study. Our objective will be to evaluate hard and soft skills according to the requirements needed for the position they are applying for.
VP Interview The goal of the final interview is to check that they are aligned with BlaBlaCar's values. They’ll get a wider vision of the department and its strategy.
