Application

Fill out the form and send us your CV - don't forget to mention all the things you are proud of! Once your CV is qualified for the next step of recruitment, you can expect contact from our recruiter.

Recruiter phone call

We are curious to get to know you and thus will ask you a few questions about your experience, motivation and expectations, as well as tell you more about Schibsted and our projects.

Programming task (optional)

Time to show off your practical skills during a home assignment - we don't want to stress you with onsite programming. Every solution is then carefully reviewed by our technical recruiters.

Technical interview

Now let's meet face-to-face and talk about your knowledge and skills - we'll start from reviewing your task and then move forward to more complex topics. Don't forget asking questions too!

Team fit interview

Have a chance to meet the Product or Engineering Manager you will be working with. During this step we'll focus mostly on soft topics - your work style, approach to software development and other.

Offer

Usually we need some time to summarise the process and then - yay, the offer is on the table! You have just received the opportunity to join one of our teams and work together with us :)
