We do not expect you to have seen it all. We are eager to help you along, and to make sure you succeed at VIBBIO.
This is how we think your first months on the job will look like.
During the first two weeks, you will
learn about our vision, our product, and our customers
meet all of your team mates, and learn about the way we work
ship your first change to production
After six weeks, you will
be able to design, develop, and ship new features by yourself across our entire stack (we always collaborate and help each other out!)
have taken co-ownership of our product roadmap, and have started making visible improvements
be ready to help out with customer support on Intercom
After three months, you will
own your work through the entire cycle from planning to shipping to production and into maintenance and improvement
mentor your co-workers
be ready to dive into new areas of work that are outside your comfort zone
We do not believe in whiteboard interviews, we want to understand who you are and how you think in real world situations.
We want you to be able to show us the best version of yourself during this process. We're not out to lure you into a trap which is why we want you to know what it will look like.
Apply through this website with a short cover letter where you tell us a bit about yourself, add your CV and any other links you may find relevant, e.g. to your codepens, personal website, or other projects
We invite you for a first chat to get to know you better, usually via video call
We ask you to complete a written assignment and a small coding challenge which we design just for you, so we get an idea of your current skill level and have something to talk about during the next stage. You will be able to choose between a challenge focusing on creation, and one focusing on refactoring. You will be able to work through those tasks on your own time towards a realistic deadline that we agree upon beforehand.
We schedule an in-depth technical interview where we go through your coding challenge, and where you will be able to meet more members of the team. We used to do these in person at our offices in Oslo; now this step will also be a video call.
We may schedule another video call to address all remaining questions you and we may have
