Have a chance to meet the Product or Engineering Manager you will be working with. During this step we'll focus mostly on soft topics - your work style, approach to software development and other.


Usually we need some time to summarise the process and then - yay, the offer is on the table! You have just received the opportunity to join one of our teams and work together with us :)
