What happens after I apply?

We aim to keep the process smooth and uncomplicated. The first step is a review of the material that you send us. It is important that you send sufficient material to give a good impression of your experience.

The next step would be a meeting in Oslo, with one or two of us. We may also do a code test.

The last step would be an interview with a person who understands your skillset.

Week one at Exabel may look something like this:

  • Your workstation will have been ordered ahead of time (by your specs, of course), so you can be up and running by day one.

  • You’ll get to know the team and what people are working on by having a one‐on‐one coffee (or a tea, or juice, or your beverage of choice) with everybody on the team.

  • You will be introduced to “the julekalender”, which outlines the company’s goals for the next few years (and equally importantly, what happens when each goal is reached).

  • Pick your first challenge, and contribute some code.
