1. How does your recruitment process look and how long does it take?
The recruitment process is organised to provide you and the Idego hiring team with the widest scope of infromation. It usually may take around one month. After applying to Idego, you may expect email with an invitation to the first recruitment meeting. This one is to define whether our mutual expectations match. The second step is a technical interview oriented towards specific tech stack. Usually the hiring decision is made after those two interviews but sometimes we organise "bonus" steps: meeting with Product Owner or the client, and with Piotr and/or Krzysztof - the owners and creators of Idego Group. All interviews may be handled remotely but if you want to check out our HQ in Gdynia during the process - you can surely expect a warm welcome!
2. I'm not sure if my skills match any of the requirements - what should I do?
Apply anyway! Our technological stack keeps evolving ( as well as your skills, we're sure of it!) and growth of the company comes with the need for new roles. Taking a chance is quite worth a try !:)
3. Is English necessary?
Indeed yes, it is. In most of our projects we communicate in English on a daily basis, as we work with clients from the EU and US. However for those who want to enhance their communication skills in English, we organise weekly conversations with native speaker (and really cool guy!) on site and remotely.
4. Is a part time job possible?
Sorry, nope. Full-time cooperation is most efficient for both sides, and we're aiming for that.
5. What are the working hours?
You choose them. Just keep in mind to make them comfortable also for the client and the rest of your project team.
6. Are you honestly cool with remote cooperation? Really?
Yup. Perfectly. Twice a year we get together at Idego Summit and some project related travelling may happen, but 90% of the time, we work from wherever we choose to. :)
7. How do you manage your projects?
We deliver a variety of projects in an agile way. Above all we want methodology to work for our teams and clients so we don't always apply the same process. In each case we choose its steps wisely and adapt as required.
8. I'm interested in internship - is it possible at Idego?
9. How do you define who's on the regular or senior level?
Each career phase has its benchmark. From seniors we do expect the capacity to design complex software architecture, and provide support for less experienced colleagues regarding best practices, both tech and process- related. Mid or regular step of your career usually comes with handling autonomously the development of bigger features, providing constructive feedback and code reviews.
10. I don't want to get stuck in a project how do you address such issues?
We also do not want you to get stuck, depressed or bored - so we talk, and if one of us feels like reaching the terryfying gate of boredom, the first best thing is to share that. And then the transition is organised. Surely it takes longer than 5 minutes - but within two months you'll feel the change :)
11. Are there any general hints or golden rules regarding Idego?
We are more common sense fans than rules creators, but there's one useful hint towards great cooperation with us: if you don't know if somethings right - make sure that clients and teamembers are cool with your actions.
