Hiring Process

Our typical hiring process looks like this:

  • Screening tests & questionnaires

  • Interview & resume vetting

  • Test task

Our hiring process is heavily focused on screening tests instead of interviews. So instead of 3-5 interviews that are typical for companies, we have 1 interview and the screening tests.

The screening tests help us predict if you are able to solve complex problems and reason well.

You will be prompted to take our screening tests as soon as you fill out the questionnaire.

The way the tests are designed is that each stage has a disqualification so that if you don't pass, you can't progress to the next stage.

We do not consider applicants who don't pass our screening tests, so please be sure to make it to the end.

You can take a break in between tests and come back.


  • Devops experience (±1 min)

  • Git Test (±5 min)

  • AWS Test (±5 min)

  • Python Test (±10 min)

  • Logic puzzle (±20 min)

  • Logic Passages (±20 min)

  • Logic Passages 2 (±25 min)

  • Reading Comprehension (±25 min)

In total, this should take 2 hours to complete. But keep in mind that these replace 2 interviews that would otherwise take place, which is equivalent to 2 hours.

In order to be hired by our company, all of these tests must be successfully completed and you must pass our minimum scoring threshold for each section.

Anyone who does well on these tests and has the proper experience detailed in this job post will get an email within a few days to book with the CEO an interview. That is the only interview that will occur.

If you think you're smart enough to pass our tests, then we invite you to try!

Note: please complete the application and pre-screening within 3 days of starting or you will be automatically disqualified. If you can't take it within 3 days, then email us and we will give you a time extension.
