The application process
We do not specify a fixed format for your application – but personality is convincing. We want to know why you are interested in finway and why you want to join us on our journey. We know that every application takes time, but be aware of what a big step a new application can be – so take your time. But that doesn’t have to mean that you have to send us a page-long application. Here, too, we stay true to our motto with finway – keep it short & simple.
Screening & the first interview
Our HR managers take the time to evaluate your application and invite you to a first interview if your impression is positive.
Important: We give feedback to every applicant – even if it was not enough.
If you receive a positive message and an invitation to an interview, then congratulations! Your application has shown personality and convinced us. This interview is about us getting to know each other. We want to learn more about you, but above all we want to give you the chance to ask your questions about finway. Before the interview, think about what you want from your new employer and feel free to ask our HR management questions.
The professional part
Depending on the department and seniority, technical interviews vary. If you are interested in a sales position at finway, we want to recognize your talent for persuasion and ask you to make a pitch, for example. On the other hand, if you want to join our development team, there might be a coding challenge to solve. In any case, these interviews – yes, there may be more than one – are conducted by the respective Hiring Manager. This is the person who is responsible for your area and with whom you will later work closely. This gives you the opportunity to get to know your first team member. Also use this time to ask your questions about our approach, the team, your future tasks or your development potential.
Peer & Founder Interview – a part of every application process
In every application process there is a peer and a founder interview. It is important to us that you get the chance to meet the people behind finway. This is the team you will be working with on a daily basis, developing new ideas, having discussions, and implementing initiatives. Team fit is the most important thing for us in the application process. In the peer interview you will get the chance to talk to future teammates from your department or across departments. Here you can ask any question you haven’t had the chance to ask before. But also be prepared to be asked curious questions that go beyond technical knowledge. It is also important for our founding team to get to know new finway colleagues. That’s why at the end of each interview process there is a conversation with at least one person from our founding team. Find out how the idea for finway came about, what is particularly important to the founding team and what the future of finway should look like.
Offer – and let’s go!
Whether you receive an offer from us after the application process is also basically a team decision. All colleagues involved in the interview process describe their impressions to the person in charge. If this is positive and you are also able to convince them professionally, you will promptly receive an acceptance and an offer from us. If this also includes the possibility of receiving ESOPS, you will receive more details on this in addition to the usual information on salary, vacation days, work equipment and starting date. Furthermore, every full-time employee receives a development and hardware budget from finway. You can also decide where you want to work – we also offer remote positions. After that, we hope for your acceptance of course!
But even if it is not enough, we will let you know fairly and promptly.
