HOW WE HIRE

Because our services are personal, hiring is one of the very most important decisions we make. We put a lot of thought and energy into how we evaluate candidates. That means that our hiring process might be more involved than what you have experienced.

What to Expect in the Hiring Process

Our hiring process includes several opportunities on both sides. If you move through all the steps, a typical process, in roughly this order, might consist of:

We recognize that this process requires an investment of your time, and also believe that a thorough process gives you the opportunity to get to know us as well.

Please note that our hiring process is also highly competitive. When we have an opening, it is usually the result of the organization's growth. We receive many applicants, and end up turning away some fantastic people in the process.

Our positions require a unique combination of skills, experience, and philosophical alignment. We’ve turned down candidates in the past who we knew would go on to do fantastic things (and they have) but where the fit wasn’t quite right for the work we do.

We say this to emphasize that if we don’t end up working together, it’s likely because we have an incredibly competitive candidate pool, combined with the fact that what we’re looking for is often unique.
