Do you know any developers looking for new career opportunities? We Write Code is growing and would love to hear from you! Before heading over to our careers page, however, check out our tips for getting noticed and making a solid first impression when applying to We Write Code.
Get to Know Us
Taking the time to get to know us will help you establish a common ground and find valuable source material for the following steps in the hiring process.
Please don’t just browse our website for cool interactions and random trivia to bring up during an interview. Learn about the kinds of projects we take on, who our clientele are, and what kinds of individuals we hire. Where do you fit in a relatively flat organization? Are you comfortable working with smaller teams and wearing many hats?
If this only raises more questions, we’d love to hear you ask them during the interview.
Tell Us About Yourself
When we find your application in our inbox, a million questions flash through our minds as we try to learn more about you and how you might fit in at We Write Code:
- What job are you applying for?
- Do you know how to communicate and present yourself professionally?
- Do your skills and experience match the job requirements?
- Do you have social proof and supporting documentation?
- What kinds of projects have you worked on?
- What are your expectations of the role and our company?
To paint a more complete picture of yourself, we recommend custom tailoring your resume, cover letter, GitHub links, etc. as much as possible to the particular job you’re applying for. If you make us fill in the gaps with our imaginations, we’re all going to have a bad time.
Sometimes, you might not hear anything from us. Rest assured, we are not intentionally ghosting you — sometimes we’re only human, and we get busy or forget to hit ‘send.’ In these scenarios, your best bet is to follow up with a phone call or email. We really appreciate this because it gives us another chance to connect and also shows initiative on your end.
Follow Up On Your Follow-Ups
We look at this entire process as an ongoing conversation. If you received an interview, congratulations! Show up prepared to ask and respond to questions that came up along the way. If we’re not ready to work together right away, let’s check in again at a later point in time. At the end of the day, we’re looking for opportunities to work with people who know their stuff and can make a positive impact on our culture.
