We believe every candidate should be interviewed fairly and consistently across the company. We also respect your time and understand that you may be trying to balance real life with job interviews. If you’re a candidate with us, here’s what to expect as you make your way through our interview process:
This stage is for the hiring team to review your background, skills, and experience. This is typically a resume review, where we check to ensure you meet most or all of the qualifications of the position. We also note if you have any interesting skills or experiencethat could be invaluable to our team.
This is typically a 30-minute phone call to actually chat and get an introduction to the person behind the resume. Some are shorter, others can be an hour! It depends on how many questions the recruiter (and you) have. We’ll cover your experience in detail and seek to understand your goals and what excites you.. We ask that you do your research on our company, our values, our product, and bring questions! We may also cover compensation expectations, relocation, if necessary, and other related topics.
This stage is usually around a 30-45 minute phone or video call between you and the hiring manager (typically the person you would report to) to discuss the role in more details. If you’ve applied for a technical role, this stage is where you can show off your technical skills. Bring examples of projects you’ve worked on and skills you’ve picked up in your career.
This stage is particularly for our more technical roles (typically within our product or engineering departments) and is meant to validate your skills in practical application. We’ll send over an exercise of some sort related to the role you’re applying for (a coding exercise or sales presentation, for example). We love questions in this phase! This isn’t a pass/fail exercise, but a way for us to better understand your skills and your unique approach.
For us, we feel like this is actually a mutual interview. We are pretty certain you’re a great candidate and you’re in the final stages in making a decision on whether or not Censys is the right step for you in your career. You may interview with 2-3 people at once or in one-on-ones... Be yourself! Dress comfortably.
After we wrap, the team you met with will come together and review your experience and skills and any exercises you’ve done and try to make a hiring decision. Usually, this happens within a couple days after your team interview.
If the team decides we want you on the team, you’ll work closely with your recruiter on putting together an offer that everyone is comfortable with.
When you join Censys, we want you to feel like you're finding a work home, not just a new workplace.Read More
