BlueModus – Why Work For Us?


We say we are technologists. Engineers. Architects. But at our heart, we are the hand-raisers, the helpers. We approach our employees and customers without ego and prioritize things like transparency and efficiency in every relationship.

A lot of companies talk about their awesome offices, cool events and great perks. We can, too. But when you come to work for BlueModus, you not only get to work in great digs, you also become part of an incredible team that we think separates us from other tech companies. We've created a culture that attracts bright, passionate, caring people who sincerely want to do their best for clients and partners. We’re occasionally a little geeky. Always fun-loving.

Check out the entire team at Who We Are.

We Seek the Best

Hiring the right person to join the BlueModus team is very important. Our colleagues are the heart and soul of BlueModus; they are the mechanism that makes our company run, and who our clients depend on as partners and trusted advisers.

We know the wrong hire will impact our culture, team morale, and our clients. Therefore, we take this process very seriously.  We believe each colleague being hired brings something unique to BlueModus, and it is important to seek out those with the best qualities. Simply put, this means getting hired at BlueModus is not easy.

We want you to understand from the very beginning what to expect in our hiring process, so you can decide if you want to move forward. If you are expecting a simple interview and then hired…then BlueModus is likely not the right fit for you.

Our Process

Here is what to expect during the BlueModus hiring process:

  • Resume Review
    • We review your resume to get a sense of you
  • Questionnaire & Assessment
    • Candidate is sent questionnaire and for technical roles an online assessment to complete
    • This helps us better understand you and your skills
  • Phone Screen 1 (30 - 60 minutes)
    • Candidate is scheduled for phone interview
    • Be prepared to discuss experience & ask questions about role
  • In-Person Interviews (2 - 3 hours)
    • Candidate is scheduled for two group interviews
    • Be prepared to go deep into your experience and preferences on work culture; be specific and inquisitive
  • Offer Phone Call (15 - 30 minutes)
    • HR calls candidate to finalize offer
    • Be prepared to provide references and discuss start date; we want you!
  • Offer Letter
    • Candidate is sent an offical offer letter to join BlueModus

Our Commitment to You

As you can see, we also believe in transparency. Obviously, not all candidates will make it through each stage of the process, as we will disqualify along the way as we look for the right person to join our team. However, we do commit to keeping you informed throughout the entire process.

Also, we want, and expect you, to interview us. It is critical that you are evaluating if the position is the right fit for you from the perspective of skill set, responsibility and career path.  You should also evaluate whether BlueModus is the right fit for you when it comes to work culture and environment. We understand that agency life is not for everyone – we move fast, have high mutual accountability, and work hard. But you will not find a team that cares more than the colleagues at BlueModus.

We hope this process will help you, just as much as it helps us determine the right fit. If you have questions throughout the process, we encourage you to ask.

    - Fun perks like catered lunches M-R, breakfast on Fridays, and in-office happy hour on Thursdays

    Advice to Management

    None, this company is run exactly the way I would want to run my own company. They know how to take care of people and it shows in the healthy work culture they've created here.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BlueModus (Denver, CO) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Pretty easy going and nothing overly technical or difficult. If you have a solid body of work and good examples I believe they tend to take your word for it. Obviously you'll need to prove that you're competent pretty quickly as they don't typically have people pairing to work on projects together.
