Welcome to the DCMN recruiting process!
This page is designed for everyone interested in joining us at DCMN. We want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire process. If there is something on your mind that we aren't answering here, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
Our recruiting process
We generally follow up three step process:
1 | Video interview with a member of the People Team
Just to get to know each other: Learn about DCMN & our culture, and introduce yourself and your background.
This video call last for around 30 minutes.
2 | Expert interview
This is where you’ll show off your chops. You'll discuss skill-based questions with an Expert in your area of expertise, and it’s time to meet your future Team Lead to speak about the role, responsibilities and growth opportunities.
This video call or personal meeting at one of our offices last for around 60-90 minutes.
3 | Onsite interview with optional case study
We’re getting closer to the finish line: Get to know the team and clarify any remaining questions with the Team Lead. Meet all relevant stakeholders before a final hiring decision is made. For some roles, you’ll present your solution to a short case study that you've prepared beforehand.
We usually invite you to one of our offices for this final meeting. A digital meeting can be arranged in some cases, too. The duration of your final interview varies depending on the role, but we'll let you know beforehand.
This really depends on many factors and the specific role, but usually it takes between 4-8 weeks. During your first interview, we'll explain the specific timeline for the role you've applied for and we will keep you in the loop regarding any changes.
We have collected a list of resources that might help you to learn more about DCMN, our company culture and our work:
- Follow us on LinkedIn
- Read what we post on Facebook
- Of course we're on Instagram too!
- Visit our blog and check out this post about how we work during COVID-19, and this post about how we became one of Europe's fastest growing companies.
- YouTube is another great place to experience DCMN, especially our culture and some cool campaigns we've produced for our clients.
- If you're a Twitter user, we'll keep you up to date there as well!
A couple of tips & tricks we've learned along the way:
- If we've scheduled a video call with you, you've received a calendar invite with a link to join the call. Easy! You might have to allow your browser access to your audio and video, so we recommend testing this once before your call. Easy!
- We might also send you a link to Google Meet, especially if you'll be speaking to several people at DCMN. No need to install anything, just click the link and show us your best self.
- There are two things we love: curious questions and specific examples. Don't hold back!
- We want to meet you as you are, so please don't worry about dress code or any other formalities. We appreciate that you take the time to speak to us, and just want to learn who you are and what drives you.
