Still, they believe that the opportunity of creating a marketplace and then, on top of that, a professional development platform is even bigger and more exciting.

● Deep dive call <45/60 mins> Optional and only if necessary.
● Skills Assessment <60/90 mins>
● Cultural fit interview 1/2 <60/90 mins>
● Reference Check <Async>
● Offer <30 mins>

People Driven

● They create value by solving real problems
● Everyone in their team matters

Humble Learners
● They take difficult challenges outside of their area of expertise
● They always question the established way of thinking
● They seek to surround ourselves with exceptional people to learn from
● They are aware that there is so much they don't know, so they strive to listen and learn

Deliver with focus
● Small steps, big vision
● Results matter more than ideas
● They understand the context so that they can prioritize their tasks

Proactive Ownership
● They take responsibility for the work to be done in an autonomous way
● They always ask "how can we do better?"
● They measure the output of their work
