Interview process

📞 Introductory phone screen

As it is the best way to get a process rolling, an introductory phone screen is what LightStep starts with. This will help you get an impression of the company, and let LightStep get an impression of you.

📱 Phone screen with engineering manager

If each of you like what you hear, another phone screen will be scheduled with an engineering manager - most likely the manager who has an open position. This wil let you ask technical details concerning the software you'd be working on, as well as let the engineering manager see if you'd be a good fit.

🍀 Onsite with four panels

What will follow the technical phone screen is the onsite. This will involve four different panels, and all of them would either involve system design, code review, or cultural fit. It should last no longer than 4 hours. If all ends well, you will be hearing about an offer within a week.
