What Happens Next?

We expect to review your application ASAP. You’ll hear from us within 2-3 days if we decide to invite you to a technical exercise. The exercise is representative of the kind of day-to-day work you’d be doing on the team. We usually only invite candidates to this stage that meet minimum standards, and those candidates should expect to spend about 2-3 hours completing this test.

The next phase of the hiring process will be a video interview with our people operations manager (approx. 30 min). You and she will talk through your background and your approach to remote, teamwork and Air Apps. After the people interview, the top candidates will proceed to the team interview stage. You’ll talk with 1-2 members of the team about your technical knowledge, experience and discuss the position (approx. 1h).

The top candidates will proceed to the final interview stage. You’ll talk to the leadership team and will align yours and the company’s expectations. We aim to make an offer 3-5 days after your final interview.

Please note that we’re unable to offer individual feedback during the process. We usually see 1,000+ applications, and our team can’t provide personalized feedback. It is a demanding application process. We appreciate you giving us that consideration, and we promise to provide you with our full attention in return. We look forward to hearing from you!
