Frequently Asked Questions I’d like to learn more about the company and ask some questions, can I give someone a call? Due to the volume of applicants we have, we typically don’t take calls until AFTER someone has applied and typically not until they’ve completed the set of video questions. That said if a question you have CANNOT be answered here:, on this job description, or otherwise on our website, please email us, and we’d be happy to answer it for you. If for whatever reason we can’t easily reply over email, we’re happy to give you a call.In some special cases, we will call and discuss the role with a candidate whom we have sourced via a recruiter or through our own outreach. The videos interview recordings aren’t working for me, what do I do? The applicant tracking and interviewing system we have is great. It does what we need it to do, and the system has worked great thus far for helping us process people faster, and giving candidates a platform to showcase themselves beyond a resume, allowing us to find talent we might otherwise have missed. That said, sometimes the software doesn’t work, and there’s not much we can do about it. In those cases, we recommend trying on a different device (mobile sometimes has internet connectivity issues that cause problems), a different browser, clearing your cache and turning off extensions, or, if all that fails, you may respond back to the interview email with a private Youtube video link or similar recording for us to review, this is however not preferred. I don’t want to do a video interview, can I just come in instead? Unfortunately no. We have to process everyone the same way or it’s not fair to other candidates, and it’s important for us and for you that we do the proper due diligence through our questions. You want to work somewhere with extraordinary people, and this is how we accomplish that. You can however take as long as you want to complete your videos, and you may re-record your answers until you’re comfortable with them. We want confident candidates, and if you don’t want to show your face that could be a red flag. Job ID: 43678046
