Benefits of Working at Weever

We put our teams first. A great team is given the autonomy and support to execute the plan and do their best work. We trust our teams.

In order to support you we offer:

  • A remote-friendly culture: Communication is key and we have several team members that are working remotely with us full and part time.
  • Training: Team members have access to a plethora of training materials, conferences, and we encourage pair-programming and mentor-ship.
  • Insurance: For our Canadian employees we have a good benefits package offering dental, drugs, and other kinds of coverage.
  • Vacations: Our team members must take them.

Application Process

Our hiring process consists of four steps:

  1. Submit your resume, cover letter and a link to Github (or similar portfolio of your code) to https://weeverapps.com/jobs
  2. Initial call
  3. Technical Screen
  4. Final Interview

We start with an initial call in order to answer any initial questions you may have about us and to discuss your experience. The technical screen can be completed either in-person or remotely at your leisure. We don’t want to take up much of your time!

The in-person screen is prescriptive: write some code to make a suite of tests pass and should take less than an hour. The take-home is less prescriptive and designed to be a small, short project to be completed at your own pace within a few hours at most (or more if you need it, there are no hard limitations).

We use the results of the technical screen as a barometer for the final interview. We don’t do any whiteboarding or other hazing rituals in the final interview. We only use the technical screen to cater the technical depth of the final interview to your skill level.

We’re pretty quick to follow up, potentially with an offer, within a day or two of the final interview.

Of course we’re trying our best to be as inclusive as we can be and we prefer candidates from under-represented groups. We are a diverse group and we believe it gives us strength. If you have any requests or questions about our hiring practices we’d appreciate to hear from you. Happy to do anything we can to accommodate the situations of our applicants

We value the innovation, ownership and creative thinking of the staff in all departments and how that can improve the company as a whole. Make your mark at Weever Apps!
