Interview process

📱 Phone screen with a recruiter

If the reusme seems like a good fit, a recruiter will reach out to get acquainted with who you are. You'll have an opportunity to talk about your past experience, the company and interview process, and for you to learn more about the position.

💻 Video call with two team members

After the phone screen a date will be set to have a video call with two members of the team. You'll have an opportunity to learn more about the culture of Algolia, and to meet with potential future coworkers.

🏡 Take-home coding assignment (no time limit)

Next up is a take home assignment. Although there is no time limit, this assignment should be fairly small in scope, so no need to stress about doing it to perfection. It is designed to help Algolia see how you tackle problems.

🎬 Video call with two team members to review assignment

When you feel good about your take home project solution, you will reach out to them and go through another video call. This will be an in-depth constructive review of the design decisions you've undergone.

🎁 On-site interview and presentation

If all goes well, you will be brought on for an on-site interview loop and presentation. For the presentation you will have 30 minutes in front of the whole company to present the topic at hand. Anyone in the company is welcome to join and learn.

📝 Reference check

If all goes well you will be asked to provide some final references before finalizing the hiring process.
