Find your place
It is up to you to choose the department that fits you best. Make sure you check the requirements for the positions that interest you so that you can compare them to your education, experience, and qualifications. We value candidates that have done their research before applying for an open position. People who do everything in life with great passion and are sure about their career path are always at an advantage when applying at Walltopia. We love to hear all about the reasons why you chose us during the first phases of the recruitment process, so giving us a good explanation of why you decided to apply for the given position would definitely win you extra points!
All in all, there are three things to remember:
- Take wise and well-informed decisions about the department you would like to apply for
- Apply only if you believe you would put your heart in
- Tell us all about your choice and the reasons behind it
This is a very important part of the recruitment process as these documents are the tools that get you to the doors of the company. Do not underestimate their power.
Make sure you have had enough time to revise your CV/resume and align your skills and experience with your chosen position’s description. Always emphasize on the knowledge and abilities related to the department that you are applying for, and be very specific about your past experience and achievements. We want to know what you have accomplished, not what your previous list of responsibilities was. If you are a recent graduate with little experience don’t hesitate to tell us about your university projects and extracurricular involvements – what was your role, what did you learn, and how did it turn you into a better professional.
Your cover letter shows us how you express yourself and gives us an idea of what to expect from you during the interview. Be specific and tell us about the important things in your life, which made you the person you are now. The cover letter is also the place to tell us all about why you chose to apply for the given position – convince us that you deserve a place on the “interview” table.
Things to remember:
- Align your skills and experience to your chosen position’s description
- Be concrete and specific. (Please do not use big words just for the sake of using big words.)
- Send us a cover letter
- Keep it short
- Do not copy pre-made templates, use your own words. We know how to use Google too.
We strongly believe in the power of communication and the importance of the first impression. In some cases, you may go thtough just one interview, in other – up to three.
1. First interview:
Your first meeting is held by Walltopia’s recruitment specialists who are both experts at interpreting resumes and familiar with all available positions and their requirements — not just the one you have applied for. These are the first people you need to impress in order to proceed to the next stage. They are here to see what your best qualities are, and to guide you through the entire company. It is their job to make sure you are a good match for Walltopia, and determine if we are likely to do great things together.
To get to the interview, all candidates first need to pass a logical reasoning test. It helps us form an opinion about how you think, and how quickly you get things done. Keep in mind that if you are applying for a role in the R&D, Accounting, Law, Engineering, or Design department you should be prepared for a hard-skills test that covers your role-related knowledge. You would be invited to an interview only if your results were acceptable.
Both the test and the interview take about one and a half hours.
- Show us deep knowledge of the company (products, teams, history, and values)
- Ask questions – take your time and think about these before you come to the interview
2. Second interview:
The second meeting introduces you to your potential manager and mentor. Take the chance to highlight your best qualities one more time. We might ask you some open-ended questions that put you in a situation very similar to a real one. Keep in mind that we would like to learn more about your problem-solving approach. It is important to explain your thought process when answering such questions. The way you communicate and make decisions is something we would like to explore and learn more about during the interview.
Overall, we are looking to find these 5 important characteristics of each Walltopia member in you:
- Analytical thinking
- Curiosity and hunger for knowledge with a life-long learning attitude
- Positively anxious – in case you are wondering, this is the feeling that you could always score better in everything you do; the feeling that motivates you to keep moving, as you believe that you were born to do great things!
- Desire to always go a mile further even and exceed expectations
Our hiring committee includes the CEO, the manager of the team, a peer you would be working with, and the recruitment specialist. We go through all of your documents once again (CV, cover letter, and test results), and have a short discussion about your application. After a structured and objective review process, we make our final decision.
We aim at sending out official job offers via e-mail no later than a week after your last interview. Please mind the deadline for your final answer. We are very punctual and discipline is one of our top qualities – this is why we would like the exact same attitude from you if you are about to enter the team.
