Hiring Process

Hiring Process

This whole process can be done in a week if you’re fast enough to reply! Think about it: you could start next Monday!

1. First Interview 💬

During this first interview, you’ll meet Julien Danjou, Mergify’s co-founder and CEO. He’ll talk about Mergify’s story, vision and organization so you get a good overview of the company and its product.

You’ll also be able to talk about you! We want to learn what you did so far, where you’re at in your career and what you want to do in the future.

2. Homework ✍️

You passed the first interview with success and you would be delighted to work at Mergify? Awesome! Now is the time to show-off and brag about your skills.

Depending on the role you’re applying to, we’ll ask you to build a small application. It should not take more than 4 hours to build the project — at least we hope so.

The goal there is for us at Mergify to understand how well you know your craft. Once you’re done with this, you can send it to your hiring contact and we’ll review it.

Don’t underestimate the project: your goal is to impress us!

The resulting code will serve as a base to discuss during the next step: the technical interview.

3. Technical Interview 🎙

Your code has passed the eyes of our developers. Congratulations again!

Now is the time to discuss technical stuff. This interview will be led Mergify’s co-founder and CTO, Mehdi Abaakouk. We will talk about the code you provided in your homework.

We’ll ask you to guide us through the code, and we’ll ask question along the way. What kind of question? Well, we like to know why you made certain design choices or why you might have missed certain aspect of the problem.


We’ll also chat more generally about computer stuff and what you might know, have done or even ignore. Maybe you’ll teach us a thing or two!

4. Value Chat 🫶

Like every company there’s a culture and shared values at Mergify. This is why we like to have a conversation with people about it. This is usually a deep dive about Mergify core values, how we work and what to expect when joining the team.

This is a great time for you to ask questions about how it is to work in a startup like us.

5. Referral Check ☑️

This is the final step, and it does not require a lot of efforts from you. We’ll ask to provide contacts (professional email addresses) that you worked with and who can vouch for you. We’ll contact them and ask a couple of questions about your past experiences.

6. Offer 📝

This is it! You’re done. We’ll send you an offer that you can’t refuse. Sign it, and you’re onboard.

Welcome to Mergify!
