FAQs

What does Westhaven’s recruitment process look like?


  • Application - You will receive an answer to your application, whether or not you are selected. As applications are increasing with the growth of the company, we don’t give a specific timeframe but it is usually managed within 2 weeks maximum. As we are an international company, all communications will be in English.
  • Recruiter call - You will first have a chat with one of our recruiters to discuss about your background and motivations/interests. We aren’t especially looking for someone with an extremely specific experience but are aiming to understand why you’ve chosen Westhaven, what you think you could bring to the company and if you understand our values and expectations on the role you applied to.
  • Phone/Video call interviews - If the recruiter finds a fitting role, you’ll go through one video call with the hiring manager or someone from the team who will focus on your applicable skills and the situations you have encountered at work. It’s also a chance for you to find out as much about us as we find out about you. Sometimes, we might also ask you to go through a small live exercise but if that’s the case, you will be warned in advance.
  • Assignment - You will be asked to showcase your expertise for the position through a technical assignment to do at home. There is not one single answer to those assignments. During the assignment review, we will make sure to understand the methodology around your work.
  • Onsite Interview - We’ll arrange for you to visit one of Westhaven offices. This will be a great opportunity for you to meet with future teammates, managers as well as other. The onsite is a moment when the hiring team gets to know you better and you get to know Westhaven. Everyone at Westhaven is involved in the recruitment process and takes an interest in your recruitment. In the end, we will gather the feedback of the teammates you met before sharing our final decision.




What documents do I need to provide with my application?


Either an up-to-date resume or a LinkedIn profile with your contact details so our recruiters will be able to get in touch with you. Feel free to also share any other material that could be relevant for the position you apply to (Github profile, personal website, portfolio etc).




How to prepare for the interviews?


Simply by doing your research! We’ll expect you to have a basic understanding of what Westhaven is : our website and blog are there for you! In the meantime, it is also important that you understand the position you apply to so have a careful read of the job description and prepare examples that will illustrate how relevant your application is. Our values - Grit, Trust, Care, Candor, Humility - also play an important role in our recruitment process. Please make sure you have read and thought about what they mean to you. We work in a casual environment and we want people to feel comfortable so feel free to wear what makes you feel comfortable. We put a premium on your skills, not your outfit.




How will Westhaven contact me after I have applied?


We aim to respond to everyone within 2 weeks. At that time, our recruiting team we’ll send you an email to explain to you what is the next step. If your application is a fit with what we are looking for we will schedule with you a video call screen with a recruiter. If it is not the right time we will also send you an email to let you know about our decision to not move forward.




Can I reapply at Westhaven?


Of course. Usually we ask candidates to wait 6 months before applying for another role at Westhaven. This gives you time to develop new skills and gain experience so that you can be successful in the interview process in the future.




What is the best way to apply for employment at Westhaven?


The best way to apply for a job at Westhaven is through our safe application portal linked here. Our recruiters are able to pull your application from the portal and communicate with you through the same. We have become aware of scams involving false offers of Westhaven employment and/or contractor engagements. The scams and false offers use imposter websites, email addresses, and Slack messages. None of these offers are legitimate, and Westhaven’s recruiting process never requires candidates to purchase products or services, or process payments on our behalf, or to share personal and/or financial information during the interview process. Our recruiting team will direct you to submit your application through our safe application portal and communicate with you through the same.
