SHOULD I APPLY FOR A LIFE-CHANGING OPPORTUNITY AT DIGITAL MOUNTAINEERS?

  • Yes, of course!
  • Yes, but in a different color.

Yes! We know life isn’t perfectly sculpted and we aren’t looking for the impossible.

 

Our best Mountaineers come from a diverse range of backgrounds. Good work and good perspective, does not look the same from every angle. And we want those different angles so we can best serve our clients.

 

We just want to deliver our best work to positive impact organizations. The better work we do, the more good our clients can do. If you know you have it in you and can prove it, that’s all it takes to become a Mountaineer.

HOW WE HIRE MOUNTAINEERS

WANT TO JOIN US?

It isn’t easy to become a Mountaineer, but it’s worth the effort.

 

After you send in your application, we’ll review it and reach out. We have been overwhelmed with applications, so give us a little time to properly absorb your resume and application.

 

We never filter applications based on superficial reasons such as level of formal education, past work experience, or age. Furthermore, we read every application and treat every application as a person. After all, that is what it’s meant to represent, isn’t it?

WHAT TO EXPECT

Interviews are done via phone calls and Slack. Since our day-to-day is 100% remote, we want the interview process with you to be similar to the way our team works. During the interview, we will ask about things like your motivation, technical depth, problem-solving skills, and managing unpredictability. We also set aside plenty of time for you to ask questions!

If the initial interview goes according to plan, we move on to our Thought Challenge. We will present you with a near-real-world challenge that a hypothetical client is facing, and will give you time to come back with a solution or approach.

 

This challenge should only take a couple hours of your time, but there is no set due date. After being presented with your Thought Challenge, we ask that you let us know a timeframe needed. Typically, hopeful Mountaineers take about a week.

We’ll move to the real world and you’ll get to see firsthand how we operate at Digital Mountaineers.

 

You will be given a small project(s), based on your availability, over the course of four to six weeks. This work should total around 20 hours and is designed to be very flexible.

This is it: The culmination of the entire process. It’s the point where we each have an opportunity to work with one another and, most importantly, make a positive impact together.

 

We’ll talk final rates/salary, start date, and what you need to make a smooth transition to Digital Mountaineers.
