Our interview process

We don't do whiteboard interviews. We optimize our process around you and real-world problems, not algorithms on a whiteboard.

Our process starts with an initial call with a senior member of our engineering team. This is mainly a screening interview where we get to know you and tell you about the company, team, and specific role.

The second stage is a technical interview. We will build a feature or fix a bug together on our actual codebase because we'd like you to know what you're getting into.

Our third and final step is an in-office or video call so you can meet with a number of our team members. We want to give you a firsthand look at the life and culture of Sibi.

Salary Range

Senior Software Engineer pay range: $120k to $150k annual salary (USD).
