Application Process

Contents of your submission

Please prepare a letter of interest highlighting your qualifications and experiences relevant to the position for which you wish to be considered. Please be specific with qualitative and quantitative examples highlighting your ability, skill, or knowledge. If we share a network of colleagues in common, please don't hesitate to let us know that too. (In other words, if you know someone that works here, please mention that fact.)

Resume

Include your complete resume, a description of the projects and teams you have worked with previously and samples from your work portfolio (if applicable, see below). To be considered for an interview, your resume must indicate you have attained the minimum qualifications.

You may optionally attach supporting material to demonstrate your qualifications, experience, or fit for the job to which you are applying, so long as the total does not exceed 10MB. Please make sure your full name is in the file names of the attachment(s). Only the following types of file attachments will be accepted:  pdf, doc/docx, ppt/pptx, or png/jpg

Portfolio

(Applies to Graphic Designers, Content Developers, Learning Experience Designers, or Software Engineers; optional for all other open positions.)

We're big believers in portfolio-based assessment of applicants. We want to see examples of your work product. Other than your resume, it's one of the only ways to differentiate yourself from other candidates. Please specify the intentionality about why you're including what you're including in your portfolio samples.

Whether it's a graphic design, website, software source code, or instructional resources, lesson plans, interactive experiences, or training materials you've created, having a sample of your work to review helps us choose who we invite for interviews.

Our preference is to see examples of your work from your current or former employer(s). If you are unable to disclose those examples due to confidentiality agreements, it's acceptable to submit examples from personal projects.

Location

Most of our jobs are now remote friendly to anyone living in the United States. We also provide relocation expense reimbursement if you wish to move to Portland, Oregon, where we maintain an office. If your resume doesn't indicate you're living in the vicinity of the location listed for the job to which you are applying, please indicate whether you intend to relocate in your cover letter.

Process

After submitting your application, it will be screened for how well it meets the qualifications, experience, and education requirements of the job opening. Though we can’t always reply personally to every application, if there's a match between your talents and our needs, we will contact you directly within two weeks to schedule a video or in-person interview. 

Interview

We interview candidates using behavior-based questions designed to better understand and evaluate your abilities and experiences at problem solving, decision making, and communicating—among with other behaviors—that are indicative of being a high-performing contributor on our team. Here is a list of sample behavior-based interview questions similar to the ones we may ask you.
 
This approach means the interview is very conversational. We will ask you to tell us stories about your work experiences, thought processes, and actions taken in different scenarios and circumstances so that we can better understand you. These aren't questions about what you would do, but rather about what you actually did. Remember, there are no wrong answers in a conversation and we'll help steer you in the right direction if we get off topic.
