Our Recruitment Process
Step One: Let's have a chat
Before we start the formal interview process, we love to have an informal chat with candidates, to see what they're looking for, to allow them to ask questions about the company, and to talk about the spaces we have in the team.
Step Two: Technical Assessment
We're a cybersecurity company so we need candidates who are passionate and knowledgeable about common security risks. We also need candidates to have coding skills, to be able to automate vulnerability exploitation.
Our technical assessment is designed to grade a candidates experience in their role. For software development roles, we'd discuss an example task for the team and work through the problem together to a potential solution. We care about your approach and collaboration skills.
For penetration testing roles, the technical assessment is simply a vulnerable application and candidates are asked to assess the system. It's not a capture the flag where you must exploit x number of vulnerabilities - we care more about how you approach the challenge, how you communicate your findings, and your understanding of the security vulnerabilities you find.
Step Three: That's it!
We know some companies like to drag these things out with multiple tiers of interviews, assessment days, and worse. We like to keep things straight forward and transparent.
