HOW DO I APPLY?
Step 1: Online Application
Crossover has open positions demanded by our customers at all times. You will start your application by hitting the 'Apply Now' button then uploading your resume and confirming your email address. From there - the Crossover platform will guide you through the remaining steps.
Step 2: Take the Fundamentals Test
The first test is a 'Fundamentals' test. This is a multiple-choice test to check for baseline skills needed for the role. The test typically takes applicants 20-30 mins to complete. You will receive your score via email within an hour. Passers will receive an email invitation to the next step in the application process.
Step 3: Implement the Tech Trial Project
The second test is a significantly more difficult and lengthy step - typically taking candidates 4-5 hours. In this step, we're going to give you a specific technical scenario that will be similar to something you may encounter in the role. Though the scenarios are not real work products - we will be able to see which candidates are truly the top 1% and have put in the effort to standout amongst their peers. You will also be asked to make a technical presentation to demonstrate your communication skills.
All the applications are being evaluated by full time Crossover software architects. And you'll receive an extensive report after this test, even if you fail, so you'll know what skills to work on.
Step 4: Join the Interview
This is the final step of the technical evaluation. One of our architects from evaluation team will speak with you via Skype to understand if you're the best-fit for the position. They're going to ask you technical questions on your current and previous roles and ask you about the decisions you made for your Tech Trial deliverable. Being self confident and describing achievements in your career is very critical.
Step 5: Meet the customer hiring manager and get hired
After you've passed our Crossover screens and we've concluded you are the top 1% of talent - you will then be introduced to several potential hiring managers. This is intended to be a two-way discussion where you can ask questions about the team, product, metrics, etc. The hiring manager will be looking to evaluate you for fit within the company and team. You can interview with as many hiring managers as desired and make the decision on which company or team best fits your interests and career desires.
