What does our hiring process look like?

Finding cash in your jacket pocket? Great surprise. Finding out there’s a two-year application process? Not so much. Call us crazy, but we only like great surprises. That’s why we are transparent in everything we do. Here’s what you can expect during our hiring process:

Step 1: Nice to meet you

The first step is simple: upload your Curriculum Vitae to our internal platform. A cover letter and your portfolio are optional.

Step 2: Let’s talk

It looks like you could be a good fit with a profile we’re looking for. We’ll invite you to interview with one of the members of our hiring team.

Tell us more about your motivation for the position, and how your skills will be a valuable addition to the company.

Step 3: Someone you should meet

There’s already a great match for you - we’ll introduce you to our client right away. They want to make sure that they feel it too, and that your skills and attitude are what they need to turn their digital ambitions into a reality.

This structure speeds up the process: it gives us the fastest possible turnaround in terms of getting you placed with a client.

Sometimes there isn’t an immediate obvious fit with one of our current open projects. Don’t worry. In that case, you’ll be invited straight for a final interview, the last step before a decision is made.

Step 4: Get to know us

It’s final interview time. You’ll meet our Human Resources manager, and be provided with deeper insight into culture at Ariad and more details about working practices.

We’ll find out if there is a clear culture fit between you and the company--we think it’s crucial to ensure a happy and successful working environment.

Step 5: The fine print

We’d love to have you on board! All that’s left is to discuss the details of a contract in order for you to join our team!

"I decided to work for Ariad because the project and clients
that they work with seemed very interesting. I have not yet had a single
period where I was placed ‘on the bench’."

— Katie, Service Designer from Hello Bank

At Ariad, we don’t believe in cookie-cutter solutions. We always want to ensure that your contract fits around any existing commitments you have. We understand how essential a flexible approach to professional life can be. We're happy to talk about any questions that come up, before, during, or after the hiring process.
