At EasyLlama, our commitment to fostering a positive and inclusive workplace extends to our recruitment approach. We actively seek out individuals who not only possess exceptional skills but also share our passion for cultivating a supportive workplace culture. In this article, we’ll talk about the importance of inclusive hiring, how our recruiting process works, and what you can expect as a Llama Herd candidate.
Inclusive Recruiting: Not Just a Slogan
First, we make it a priority to hire with a strong focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we firmly believe in the advantages of forming a team that brings together a wealth of life experiences and a range of perspectives. Our dedicated People Operations team employs inclusive recruiting strategies, aiming to build a dynamic Llama Herd with a diverse blend of employees from different backgrounds and perspectives.
These strategies include using inclusive language in our job descriptions, proactively engaging with underrepresented communities, and posting job openings across various platforms. You can always find our open positions on our Careers page, in addition to several other external career sites. Inclusive recruiting is important because it lets us cast a wider net for talent, which often results in more innovation and creativity. Plus, having a diverse workforce helps us better understand our customers and provide excellent customer service.
Getting to Know You: The Initial Screening Call
Once we have a number of qualified applicants, the recruitment journey begins with a warm and informal call from one of our friendly recruiters. Consider this chat a virtual coffee meetup where we get to know each other better. Our recruiter will take the time to understand a bit more about your career goals and how your talents align with the position you’ve applied for. It's not about grilling you with tough questions — it's about discovering the unique qualities you bring to the table. You'll have the chance to ask questions, too, so come prepared with anything you'd like to know about us, our culture, or the role you're interested in. This initial call isn't just a checkpoint; it's the beginning of a conversation that could lead to a fulfilling new chapter with EasyLlama.
Hiring Manager Interview: Connecting on a Deeper Level
After your initial screening call, you're not just another resume in the pile. We believe in connecting on a deeper level, so candidates moving forward in the process will get to meet the hiring manager for the open position you’re applying to. This is where we get to know you better, and you get to know us too. We're not just interested in your skills; we want to understand your passions, your goals, and how you'd fit into our bustling Llama community. And don’t forget to do your research and ask any burning questions that you’d like about the open role, your potential team, or the department you could be joining at EasyLlama.
Skills and Capabilities: Unleash Your Potential
Get ready to roll up your sleeves and show us what you've got! For the next step in our recruiting process, candidates will be asked to complete an assignment relevant to the position they’re applying for, such as a mock sales presentation or a sample writing assignment. It's not about testing you under pressure; it's about giving you a chance to shine and letting your unique talents take the stage. This step helps us see your skills in action and how you'd contribute to our creative and collaborative environment.
Culture Interview: Learning More About the Herd
At EasyLlama, we're not just looking for employees; we're searching for teammates who mesh with our colorful and dynamic culture. The culture interview is your chance to explore the nuances of our workplace vibe and is usually the final step in our recruiting process. We'll chat about teamwork, communication, and how you envision your role within our inclusive Llama Herd. This culture interview could take place with one of your future team members from the department that’s hiring, our People Ops Manager, or our CEO. We feel that your future colleagues aren't just co-workers; they're collaborators on a shared journey. After the final interview, the selected candidate will receive a job offer with the perks and benefits detailed on our Careers page!
