Initial assessment was digital interview recording your response and two games assessments. Next was a recruiter phone call talking a bit about the company and how you fit into the role. Lastly is a virtual live interview with the hiring manager that you would be working for. It was mainly about the job, how you fit in, what your background and skillset is, and going over resume.
