Updater’s Full Day Interview is a Game Changer
Our team is exceptionally selective in who we hire — we look for the best fit. In order to see candidates in their most natural environment and for them to learn what it’s really like to work at Updater, we require all prospective employees to work with us for a full day.
It’s a unique approach to hiring in New York City where the motto is often, “We need to fill this role immediately!”
Built In NYC recently highlighted our methodology and our engineering team’s approach to the day. Below are a few of our favorite quotes from the profile and few stunning photos of our team in action. You can check out the full profile on Built In NYC.
The full-day process not only allows us to evaluate incoming candidates on how well they fit our culture but also holds us accountable to them. Candidates see first-hand how Updater operates and what it is truly like to work here.
