- Application Review: Once you submit your application, a recruiter will review your CV/resume and any other information or links you provide. No matter the decision, we’ll follow up with you via email.
- Recruiter Interview: This is an opportunity for you to tell us about your past experiences, skills, career goals, and what drew you to Shogun. We will also chat about what it’s like to be a Shogie, compensation, and benefits, and what you can expect during the rest of the recruiting process. We encourage you to ask questions and learn more about Shogun. After all, you are interviewing us as much as we are interviewing you.
- Skills Assessment: Some roles include a skills assessment, which is meant to reflect a real-world problem-solving scenario that you would encounter at Shogun. This may involve a take-home assignment, collaborative code challenge, mock sales call, prepared presentation, live working session, etc. Your recruiter and coordinator will provide you with everything you need for the skills assessment and will be there to help you prepare and answer any questions you may have.
- Hiring Manager Interview: This stage of the process involves a conversation between you and the person you would directly report to. Take this time to get to know your potential future leader while learning more about the role, the responsibilities, and the team's mission and vision.
- Interview Loop: Get to know our Shogies! During this stage, you can expect to have interviews with a diverse team of stakeholders around Shogun. This allows you to gain a deeper understanding of how your role collaborates with others and fits into the broader organization. Your recruiter will also provide any relevant information needed to prepare.
- Final Interview: Depending on the role, you may be invited to a final interview with an executive leader or Co-founder. When possible, we want final candidates to have a chance to meet members of the executive team at Shogun. Your recruiter will also begin to gather professional references from you during this stage using our reference tool, CrossChq.
We believe that the best way to assess candidates is through an equal and consistent interviewing process. This is why we are intentional with each person added to your interview process and the areas they will focus on. When interviewing at Shogun, you can expect consistent communication with your recruiter and coordinator on updates regarding scheduling, next steps, and additional role information. If you have any questions, we are always here to help.
