What does the hiring process look like?

1. HR Call​
The first step in our hiring process is a phone or video interview with someone from the HR department: Linda, Jill, or Lea.

We want to get to know you better in the first place and find out more about your motivation and if you could be a good fit for Homelike. Plus, we want you to get to know us, too!

Be curious and bring in all your questions to get to know your possible future role and Homelike’s culture. This call will take approx. 30 minutes.

2. Department Call​
After a first successful call with HR, we will invite you for a second video or personal interview to get to know your future people manager and department better and to convince them of your skills and your personality.

3. Case Study​
As a next step, you will receive a case study with some role-specific tasks that you need to prepare. We created these internal case studies to give you more insights into the challenges of the role and its responsibilities, as well as to see more of your working style and your thinking process. You will be asked to complete the case study within a fixed deadline (but we are still flexible in case you have a busy week ahead).

4. Final check​
Depending on the role, the last step in the hiring process is a call either with one of our Founders or with one of your future team members to make sure you will fit in our team.

5. Job offer & Onboarding​
After all steps of the hiring process, we will discuss the feedback with the whole hiring team to make sure we are aligned on the final decision. If we think you will be the perfect candidate for the role and our team, either HR or your future people manager will contact you with our job offer - Congratulations! 🙂

Your journey at Homelike will start with your onboarding week, where you will get a general overview of our organization, your team, and your role responsibilities. Next to that, your onboarding Buddy will provide you with some more informal information about Homelike’s culture and policies and support you in your first weeks and months.

P.S. As every role and it’s requirements are different, the hiring process will differ from time to time, too. Sometimes we need one additional interview, sometimes the order of the hiring steps will change. However, we will make sure that you are always aware of the current status and the next steps that will follow. The overall hiring process should not last longer than 3-6 weeks.
