Begin your approach to Testbirds: Throughout your application process, we want to find out if there’s a professional and personal fit – for you and us – and whether we share the same values and principles. In this, we want to communicate honestly and at an eye level, so that we get an authentic impression of each other.
How to prepare: Obviously, you should check out Testbirds prior to the interview and gather some information about who we are and what crowdtesting is. Ask yourself why you’re suitable for the job, why Testbirds would be the right employer for you, and what you expect from us. If there’s anything you would like to know about Testbirds, the position, the team, or anything else – you’re welcome to ask! Our interviews are not a one-way street of questions, but a way to get to know each other with both parties asking questions and collecting information.
What to wear: We don’t have a dress code. So, come as you are and how you feel most comfortable.
1. Application receipt
As soon as we received your application you will get a confirmation email from us. Our recruiters Stefanie and Christine will try to review your application as soon as possible to give you a first feedback within 10 days. If your profile matches one of our open positions, we will contact you by phone or email to invite you to a first interview.
2. Phone interview
First, you’ll meet one of our recruiters or someone from your future team in a phone call. We ask you a few questions about the professional experiences you’ve gained so far and in return we’ll tell you more about the position you have applied for and about the Testbirds culture. Please plan half an hour to an hour for this interview.
3. On-site or video interview
If we both had a good impression of each other on the phone, we meet for a personal interview at our office, if possible, or for a video interview. In this second interview you’ll get to know your Chief Bird for an in-depth discussion about your area of expertise. Please plan one and a half to two hours for this interview.
For the discussion in the second interview, we will either send you a small challenge in advance or allocate time for it in the interview. Sometimes it might be an assignment to be completed after the interview. This assignment is always a close representation of the tasks you will encounter in the position you’ve applied for. This way you can experience what your future tasks will be and we can make an assessment of your level of expertise.
5. Last but not least
For most of our positions we make a final decision after the second interview. Sometimes, however, we introduce you to a few more future colleagues and arrange an additional phone call or video interview with you.
