Beat’s hiring process is an important part of our culture. The Beat team deeply cares about the people who make them up. We also envision building a representative and inclusive workplace. In order to truly build for everyone, we know that we need a diversity of perspectives and experiences, and a fair hiring process is the first step in getting there. Now that we covered what our value means to us, let’s take a look at what it means to you as our candidate and potential member of our team and how to ace your interview at Beat!

From the first conversation with one of our Talent Acquisition team members to the last team interviews with your potential stakeholders at Beat, we will prepare a set of questions to encourage you to share some of the experiences you had in the past and share with us why and how you worked on that specific task.

We need to understand if our values’ behaviors are something you find important as well, so make sure you let us know how you incorporate them into your decision making. We may ask you questions like:

“Could you talk about a time you had to change a process to meet customer expectations?”

“Do you remember a time you had to compromise in order to satisfy a customer’s needs?”

“What motivated you to make that extra effort?”

When questions like these come up, make sure to introduce us to the case:
– What was the current situation when you took over?
– What was the issue or conflict?
– What needed to be done?

Then, explain how you dealt with the case:
– What did you take into consideration?
– Who you worked with and why?
– What did you want to achieve?

Finally, we would like you to share:
– What were the results of your efforts?
– How did you measure the success of the actions you’ve taken?

As you can see, we are looking for evidence of the behaviours we value the most at Beat. Beat behaviours are as important as the hard craft we bring to the table, so we encourage you to think not only about the achievements you are proud of but also how you managed to make them happen!

After your interviews are done, we review all information captured during the hiring process with all interviewers involved. We say “we” because we take into account a number of perspectives to come to a decision. If we decide that you’re the best candidate for the role, your hiring manager will reach out to you with an offer! Sounds good?

Put on your hat and enjoy the ride!
