Our application process

We invite outstanding applicants to participate in a multi-step hiring process that includes virtual interviews, performance assessments and in-person interviews. Our process is not short. It’s thorough and rigorous because we take talent very seriously and only hire stellar candidates who are also a great culture fit to join our team.

Throughout the process, we learn about who you are as a person and give you a chance to learn about us. We want to see what skills and knowledge you bring to both us and our clients. And we want to ensure that what you define as success is in line with what we define as success.

Steps include interviewing with our human capital director; completing a performance task that gives you a good sense for the day-to-day of the work and gives us a good sense for how prepared you are to do it; the chance to present that task to a member of the interview team; and a final in-person interview with the CEO and/or our partners. Know that those conversations will explore education, your motivations, your ability to thrive in a virtual environment and much more.
