The path to become a Hesehusian
We have some of the best employees in the industry who are passionate about what they do and always set the bar high. We are committed to helping each other to be better, and our culture is characterised by a strong social unity. This is why, both professional and personal competencies are relevant when we recruit new Hesehusians for the team.
Recruitment process - step by step
We are very conscious of making our recruitment process as attentive, pleasant and professional as possible. Therefore, we give an insight into the different steps that a typical recruitment process with us entails in connection with a vacancy, from application and tests to eventual hiring and onboarding.
The first step is to send us a motivation letter via our site, where you tell us a little about who you are, why you want to work at Hesehus and what you can contribute. Please also attach your CV and other relevant documents such as diploma with transcript of records and references. When we receive your application, you will be automatically notified and informed that we will process your application within three weeks.
If we believe there could be a match, we will contact you with an invitation to participate in the next step of the process.
Regardless of the position you have applied for, you will take part in a testing programme during the recruitment process. The tests will be assessed by experienced employees and you will always receive feedback.
As a developer, you will initially complete a pre-screening test. This consists of a series of questions that give us insight into your basic knowledge of the technologies we use at Hesehus. If we assess it to be adequate, the next step is for you to complete a programming test from home. Here you will have the opportunity to show your ability to solve programming tasks and present us with the best solution within the framework using some of the technologies that we work with on a daily basis.
After a preliminary interview, we ask architects to perform a test that varies according to the role in question. Some candidates will be invited to solve a programming test, while others will be asked to show some code which they are proud of or solve a professional case. In addition, you may also be asked to complete a personality profile and a cognitive performance test. The different tests form the framework for the second interview.
IFor other types of positions, after the first interview you will be asked to solve a professional case and carry out a personality profile along with a cognitive ability test, which form the framework for the second interview.
The interview process varies according to the nature of each position, and there may be circumstances that make us change the format. However, after the interview, you will always be contacted by one of our recruitment consultants, and if we determine that there could still be a match, we will invite you to participate in the next step of the process.
As a developer, you will be met by one of our HR partners, the architect or developer who assessed your test and possibly a team leader. The purpose of this interview is to give you a deeper insight into the job and Hesehus as a workplace, just as we would like to get to know you better. In addition, we will also review the programming test which you have taken in advance.
As an architect, you will typically be met by one of our HR partners, our CTO and a team leader. The purpose of this interview is to give you a deeper insight into the job and Hesehus as a workplace, just as we would like to get to know you better. If we choose to proceed with you, we will invite you to a second interview, where the focal point will be the various tests which we will ask you to take prior to the interview.
For other types of positions, at the first interview you will receive a deeper insight into the job and Hesehus as a workplace, just as we would like to get to know you better. If we determine that there could be a match, we will invite you to a second interview, where the focal point will be the various tests that we ask you to take prior to the interview. At both interviews you will be met by one of our recruitment consultants, a team leader and possibly an employee from the team.
Based on the tests and interviews, we are ready to assess whether you match the profile we are seeking for the position in question. If you do so and if you agree, we will ask you for consent to talk to your references. We typically talk to 2-3 references who know you and your professional capabilities well.
Onboarding - welcome to the team
It is important to us that you feel prepared to start your new job with us. Therefore, approximately one week prior to your first day as a Hesehusian you will receive an onboarding programme describing what the first week will consist of. With the programme, you will be introduced to all aspects of Hesehus and you will quickly gain a good understanding of the various teams and disciplines in the company, as well as a good sense of our unique Hesehus culture. You will also get a mentor who will act as your social and professional buddy during the beginning of your time with us.
