How to Become a Developer in

In order to be able to program in, it’s important to successfully carry out an interview. But first things first. It starts, naturally, by sending a CV. Current positions that we want to fill are always listed on the page Even outside of those, however, we’re happy to accept skillful people, so if you don’t see your dream one among the vacancies, don’t despair and send us a résumé anyway. It surely won’t get lost in our mailbox. For us, your CV is an overview of what you’ve done so far, but your success isn’t based solely on that. Do you know what’s more important to us? To get to know you. 

We’ll therefore suggest a short online meeting to get to know each other better. This usually takes 30 minutes, during which I’ll ask you, for example, what you like most about programming or what your expectations and visions are. I’ll explain how we work as well as the course of potential future meetings. That will result in advancement to the second round, which is technical screening.

How do you solve problems? We find that out via a task and screening

During that, our developer Martin will attend to you and through a simple task that he’ll give you to code, he’ll check whether you have basic programming skills and also how you solve problems. If everything works well, you’ll get an assignment to work on at home.

With the task, it’s especially important for us that you’re satisfied with its result. We appreciate you putting your best effort into this. We care about it a lot because this is how you get to know and experience what it looks like to work with us. It’s no secret that open communication and feedback are key prerequisites for cooperation and for moving forward. Martin will therefore carefully review and evaluate your assignment. He’ll write to you to say what was great and what could be improved. Based on this feedback, you have the option to edit your code again. If you complete the assignment to the required level, you’ll be invited to an interview.

Trio interview

There’ll be three of us at the interview. Martin will be interested in theoretical and practical programming knowledge, while the latter will be verified during live coding. And do you know what’s allowed during this part? Googling. I mean, it’s only natural that you need to look something up during normal work. Why would we forbid you to do that in an interview? ? You can look for anything but a ready-made solution.

And what do I focus on during an interview? I’m interested in harmony with our values and your personal characteristics which, after successfully passing the interview, will help us choose the right project for you.

You know, if Maťo and I were in your shoes and applied for a job in a company where we wanted to work ideally until retirement, we’d be stressed, too. That’s why we completely understand if you don’t know something at the moment or forget it. It’s okay. We’re all human beings and you can believe that we’ll try to create the most pleasant atmosphere in the interview.

When can you start? 

At the end of the meeting, we’ll evaluate the course of the meeting and provide each other with feedback. We want our cooperation to make sense for both sides. That’s why, in our minds, we always answer the question: What will mutual cooperation bring us? When the three of us agree that you’ll fit in great with our team and that working with us will be beneficial both for the company and for you, it means that we’ve come to a successful end.

It may seem that there are too many of those rounds before you become a bartan. However, as with clients, when choosing a future colleague, we focus on long-term cooperation. We believe that more meetings and different tasks will help us make the right decision. And they will help you to get to know us properly. After all, we want to start this new phase of your working life right and move forward together.

Not all interviews are successful. And that’s okay, too. Sometimes it’s enough to immerse yourself in self-study more, work on yourself and try again when some time passes. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. And that’s how we approach it too :-).

And what does it look like here after you start? We’ll discuss that next time.
