How to apply and what to expect

To apply, please send your CV and any relevant information to Nicolas, our CTO (email: nicolas@cookieshq.co.uk).

In your first email, please explain your current experience and why you would be a great addition to our team.

Following your email, we will contact you for a first interview, usually in the presence of Nic (CTO) and Nathalie (MD). Here we will talk about you, your background, your aspirations.

If you are successful, then we will then set a day where we will aim for you to pair with one of our developers. This will give us the opportunity to test your technical skills and you the ability to ask questions directly to the team.

After those two rounds, we should have a pretty good idea of whether or not you would be a good fit for our team, and we should be ready to give a final answer.
