I have been working at Smart Wires full-time (Less than a year)
Unique culture, with a world class team that puts work ahead of ego, every time.
Emphasis on industry-changing product ensures innovative, challenging, and highly rewarding projects
Ability is rewarded. Potential for fast growth , professionally.
Self-determined deadlines and work hours often result in longer work weeks, but offset by generous time off policy
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Smart Wires in January 2018.
After applying online with a resume and cover letter (that answered very specific questions that they included in the job posting), a recruiter reached out and asked that I complete a PowerPoint presentation that introduced myself. This was a fun exercise and an interesting way to shot off PPT skills, but also time consuming if you want to do it right. Afterwards I had a call with the recruiter, where we covered fairly normal behavioral questions, although I thought they did a good job of not repeating what was already on the PPT and asking more interesting and thoughtful questions than normal. After that I had another phone interview with a member of the strategy team, which was also more of a behavioral "get to know you" type conversation. After that I got notified that they wouldn't be advancing me to the final round.
Overall I felt like it was an interesting and well-managed process. If I were to make changes, I would say that 1) it would be nice to include feedback on why I wasn't advanced to the final round - always nice to have that as a reference 2) I would move the PPT portion to later in the process - maybe only require it for the final round so that people that probably won't advance aren't spending too much time on it.
