Déroulement des entretiens

  • Technical challenge at home: and then to build a small product. This is to show us how you build things.
  • Technical challenge in our office: you will be asked to solve more abstract problems live with our team. This is to see how you think. And also to debrief on what you build.
  • Personal meeting: this is to understand who you are and what you want –and to explain more of our culture. This is more personal. We don’t recruit to fill fixed positions. We recruit to add extraordinary individuals to our team. Individuals who want to expand, improve, take responsibility in building great things.

Throughout all this process, our obsession is to help you succeed, and get a good feel for the work we do and the team we are.

At Medium, we foster an inclusive, supportive, fun yet challenging team environment.
