Playbook Appendix A - Interviews

September 7, 2021

The Process

Going through interviews ourselves, we know how frustrating and unprofessional a lack of a timeline and schedule feels. To this end, we strive to keep our interview process fast and informative. The process looks like this:

  1. Submit a resume to Asher (asher@theaidia.com)
  2. Asher will reach out to schedule an interview
  3. You will receive the hiring decision within 1 week of interviewing

Developer Interview Questions

There are 4 main parts to the interview:

  1. About Aidia
  2. About You
  3. Problem Solving
  4. About Us

We are looking for developers who will help our culture move forward. Incredible people will naturally become incredible developers through their energy, intelligence, and integrity. These incredible people develop problem solving skills not only in developing software, but in developing themselves.
