Here are some pages you might be particularly curious about:
We start with a talent screen before getting you in touch with our CPO and a member of the team to cover past experience. From there, we would discuss how you’d build a team dedicated to diversity and inclusion—it’s a must-have on our end. You’d receive a project to demonstrate how you collaborate and make technical decisions before a conversation diving further into your management style. After that, we discuss virtues and run reference checks before welcoming you to the team.
All the best,
The Aula Team 🚀
