Interviewing with seedata.io

We strongly believe in hiring great people, quickly

To make this possible, our interview process needs to be efficient. We recognise the value of candidate’s time (and our own), and also the importance of making high-quality decisions about who we bring into our team.

So, we run a lean process, structured with as few stages as we could get away with, but not skimping on depth of interrogation. We’ve chosen to make the process public, so that we don’t waste your time if you’re not prepared to go through it, and to ensure those that apply are given the best chance of success.

We aim to go from candidate to offer in 1 elapsed week wherever possible

(subject to the candidate’s availability)

Screening

A simple review of your cv against our skill and experience requirements.

We will endeavour to reply to everyone with feedback, positive or negative, from this stage. If our team believe you could be a good fit, you’ll be invited to interview.

Skills

A 45-minute interview with a technical expert 

They will be looking for demonstration of you having thorough knowledge and experience in using the skills we require, by discussing your previous roles and asking a few hypothetical scenarios. Successful candidates will be asked to consider a technical “take-away” question to bring to the next meeting. 

Culture

A 45-minute interview with the founders 

They will be looking for alignment with our values, and assessing your fit within the wider team. They will ask you to highlight your behaviour in certain scenarios, using the “situation, task, action, result” framework, looking to see specifically what you did, and why.

Decision

A final 15-minutes of feedback and potentially an offer 

They will be looking for alignment with our values, and assessing your fit within the wider team. They will ask you to highlight your behaviour in certain scenarios, using the “situation, task, action, result” framework, looking to see specifically what you did, and why.

How to succeed in your interview

There’s lots of good guidance and advice available on how to prepare and conduct yourself well in an interview, but as an additional guide, here are those items that are most important to us

Be Honest

Be yourself during the interview, and represent yourself honestly. If you’re lying to us, you’re likely also lying to yourself. At best, you’re going to waste your time and ours going through an interview process for a job you dont want or arent suited to. We want to see ‘you’!

Be Prepared

We’re telling you the questions we’ll ask because we want to give you the best shot at impressing us, so practice your answers and display your skills experience with confidence and clarity.

Read the job spec, look at our company values, and think how you best convey your fit

Be Curious

Job specs are small texts, and will never convey all aspects of a role. Equally, your CV will never capture all the contributions you have made in your career to date. So, ask questions about everything, explore opportunities to indulge passion projects. Interviews are definitely a two-way process for us
