About your application and the interview process

If you’re unsure about your qualifications for this position, we still encourage you to apply. We’re looking for candidates who have experience, but know that not everyone’s had a chance to work with the technologies in our stack. What’s most important is that you have a growth mindset, and know how to reliably ship software and data products.

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
