Our process


Toughbyte interview. We interview the candidate, presenting your company, position and country as a place to work.

First remote interview. If you want to proceed, we help schedule the first interview. We recommend that you keep this pretty short and use video. Make sure the candidate is a good culture fit and get them excited about working for you.


Remote tech interview. This is your chance to test the candidate’s technical skills. We recommend interactive tech interviews.


Onsite interviews. We suggest inviting candidates for onsite interviews before making them an offer. After these, you have all the info you need to make the an offer.
