- Willingness to solve challenging problems.
- Ability to readily learn most technologies on-the-go.
- Ability to thrive in an ambiguous environment with a high degree of autonomy.
- Verbal and written English fluency.

How to apply
- Sign up and try GitDuck.
- Write to us and tell us a bit about you, your past experiences, share your links (GitDuck, Github, your web, Linkedin, etc) and tell us why you want to join GitDuck. Very important: 1. In your email you must tell us the passcode VIKENDI, In this way, we know that you are a real human and that you are reading this. You also must tell us how GitDuck could be improved.
- Live video call: 30 minutes to learn more about you, about what are you looking for, tell you about GitDuck and answer other questions you may have.
- GitDuck coding video: 45 minutes to build a small project as far as you can given a straightforward specification. We're looking for your ability to write clean and correct code while productively making progress against our spec in a limited time. You can use your own dev environment as well as all kind of resources you want (Google, StackOverflow, docs, etc) but you must use GitDuck for recording your screen.
- Live video call: 75 minutes technical interview composed of 3 phases:
- 15mins of short technical discussion to evaluate your knowledge in a wide range of technical topics like data structures, web systems, security, systems, etc. We do not expect anyone to be strong in all the areas. We're looking for which topics you know the most about, and your ability to communicate with another engineer in technical discussions.
- 30 mins of fixing or extending an existing codebase. We'll give you a medium-sized codebase with a few bugs or failing test cases. We're looking for your ability to read and understand someone else's code, your troubleshooting, intuition and debugging skills.
- 30 mins of system design interview. We'll describe a hypothetical product or service, we'll ask you to describe how you'd break that down into a system that you could actually build. We're looking for your ability to talk about the architecture of a project, understand how all the pieces fit together and your decisions and trade-off discussions.
- Final live video interview: 20 minutes for any pending questions you or that we might have.
We're quite fast on our process, so you should be able to go through all phases in less than 2 weeks.
