Our Interview Process

We like to start with a short phone screen to ask some technical questions about CSS, semantic HTML, Javascript, jQuery, and other JavaScript frameworks (depending upon your experience with them).

If you’re invited to a on-site interview, there will be no whiteboarding and no questions about how many paperclips fit into a 747. Instead we’ve found the best success with a small coding exercise that would be completed before your in-person interview so that we can discuss your design decisions and the “why” behind your choices.
