PF has a 7-stage hiring process based on our values. We are equally interested in whether someone fits our internal values, as we are in whether you are able to do the work. If there’s a mismatch either on values or skills, we won’t be the best fit for you. Here’s the short version of what happens next:
Stage One: Video submission
You submit a 3 minute video to introduce yourself to the team, explain what role you’re applying for and why.
Stage Two: Evaluation by team
The team reviews your video, and votes on whether you move to the next stage.
Stage Three: Tester project
If approved, you’ll get a ‘tester project’: a live, real project based on an actual client. The project varies depending on the role being applied for. You’ll get a deadline, and enough information to work. This is to evaluate your skills for this particular role.
Stage Four: Group video call on Zoom
If you move to stage four, you’ll hang out with the team in a group video call. They’ll have questions to ask, but it’s meant to be like hanging out at a coffee shop or the pub. Just get to know these people and see if you like them.
Stage Five: Reference requests
If you move to the next stage, we’ll send you a form which you pass on to three different people who know you well (people who have worked directly with you as a client, an employer, or a partner). The team review the responses.
Stage Six: Value fit analysis
This is a self-assessment: you tell us how well you feel you fit the values. This is your turn to give us your opinion of yourself. Based on the results of the references and the self assessment, we all decide if you move to the final stage.
Stage Seven: Interview with the owner
For those who make it to this stage, you’ll have an online interview with the owner (Karen). She will go deep. Ask you hard questions. Some questions may be uncomfortable. This is your last in, and your last out. We remain open to the possibility that this is where something could come out that changes everything. If it’s the right place for you, or isn’t, we’ll all know it. And that’s the goal!
