Interview process

  • Initial interview: A 30-45 minute chat with our CTO. We'll share more about the role, our expectations, your history and experience, and go over any questions you may have.
  • Skills interview: We aren't big believers in the traditional whiteboard/algorithmic interview structure. You got here by knowing your craft, and we don't need to test that. Instead we will pair-program on a small project as a way to spark discussion, get to know how you approach new problems, and what things you consider. We try to keep the technical portion of our interview process focused on challenges you might face while at Switch.
  • Interview with CEO/CFO: This is the candidate's chance to meet the rest of the leadership team at Switch and learn about the company from a business perspective.
  • Optional: Meet with one of our industry advisors to learn more about our industry and trajectory.
