We’re building work environments in which we feel good – supported and safe. Because of our awareness of other people’s needs, of information exchange through the internet, we can practice more empathy.
Working in an inclusive environment that allows you to grow makes all the difference. And knowing that the company has great values and is not afraid to stand up for them makes me feel very proud of the culture we created.
The technical challenges and the leadership aspect are my favourite parts of the job. I discovered the latter only in Netguru, where I’ve been given the opportunity to support my colleagues in overcoming challenges.
At Netguru, every team member is eager to show appreciation and give recognition to the people who they collaborate with whenever they do an awesome job. I believe it is thanks to the culture of continuous feedback and open communication – we all feel responsible for it.
Why is Netguru way different? Because they care, it’s as simple as that. I knew where I was heading from the very first day of my recruitment process. My first weeks at Netguru were no different – the onboarding process went smooth and I felt at home. I was even assigned a dedicated mentor whose role was to support me throughout my first weeks. Being a Project Manager at Netguru means being friends with a whole bunch of experienced people who are willing to help and share their knowledge.
In response to the pandemic, in March 2020 we have introduced a set of precautionary measures intended to keep our team members, clients, and partners safe. These included closing offices, suspending business travels, moving onboardings online (learn more in Netguru COVID-19 Policy Statement). This 24-hour shift to remote working wouldn't be possible without our 12+ years of being a remote-friendly company.
Netguru remains a stable company: we are constantly developing and taking on more and more new projects. We’re also constantly looking for new people to join us.
During the recruitment process, we would like to get to know your skills and thinking in practice as much as possible - that's why we encourage you to do the assignment that is strongly connected with the tasks performed on a daily basis.
You will have a chance to show us your best self. As much as your resume and experience matter, we care about your attitude and skillset a lot! The deadline for sending us the tasks is usually up to 5 days (but you can get more time if needed), depending on complexity. The task should take you an average 3-5 working days to complete. We'll be in touch for the whole time.
Please, keep in mind that you are doing work solely for the purposes of the recruitment process. We guarantee that the content of the task will not be used commercially.
For non-tech positions, where we require an advanced level of English speaking skills (C1/C1+), we often conduct a short online language audit at this stage. The conversation led by our auditor aims at checking your level of proficiency in English, after which you will receive full feedback from us in regards to your vocabulary, grammar, flow, and pronunciation.
After we have checked all your tasks, we send interview invitations to candidates who rocked with their answers. The interview is usually conducted online via Google Hangouts by one person from the Recruitment Team and one person from the team you’re applying to join.
This part of the recruitment process will focus more on your suitability for the role - your experience, skills, and attitude, as well as your motivation and aspirations.
What we care about most is simply to get to know you better, and thus we would appreciate your honesty & openness.
The final meeting
During the final meeting, you will have a chance to meet your potential leader. We will delve deeper into the answers from the previous stages and focus on your career goals, experience, and motivation. We will provide you the space to clarify any doubts or questions that you may have.
Pair programming (for developers only)
Pair programming sessions are constructed in a way that allows you to show your best self while working on everyday tasks. We will expect you to code and share your screen so that we can understand your way of thinking. You are of course allowed to search for any information needed to complete the task – check the documentation, Google anything you need.
We conduct this whole meeting remotely, via Google Hangouts, so you can relax and sit comfortably on your own couch.
If everything goes well at each of these 4 steps - you’ll find a job offer in your mailbox very soon.
Over 90 percent of our clients are foreign companies, including most from such markets as the US, UK, Germany, and Switzerland. This is why, to ensure transparent communication and foster an inclusive culture, the basic language of Netguru is English. It’s also why it’s natural for us to check your language skills during the recruitment process.
During the language audit, we use the help of an external language auditor in processes where we require level C1 or higher. These are, for example, Business Development positions or Project Managers, where contact with the client is required on a daily basis. We care about a reliable assessment of a specialist who, after the audit, provides us, and then the candidate, with a detailed description of the audit results.
No, we’re looking for long-term cooperation, not gigs. Projects are assigned by our PMO team when you’re onboarded. You usually work on one project at once, and it’s possible to change it after some time if you’ve been assigned to a very long one.
At Netguru, we address employee development in quite complex ways - we want team members to evolve by fulfilling their day-to-day duties and tasks and using additional resources and activities.
This means that we will expect your solution within a certain period of time. Of course, if you need more time to prepare your answer, we can extend it, but the sooner the better. We want our recruitment process to be as smooth as possible, so we try to keep it within the timeframe.
Yes, you can work 100% remotely and within flexible working hours. You can work however you feel is best for you, as long as you are able to join your meetings (online). It is also important to mention that we all live in a similar time zone, which is one of the main reasons why we hire candidates from selected parts of the world.
Each person at Netguru has their own career path - clearly defined and followed with the support of a leader. Official career paths exist to give people a framework and reference point for their development. However, Netguru also offers a second, less formalized development path that can be combined with the main path or separated at some stage. We are open to suggestions from our people about what they would like to do.
Some of the career paths can be found under the selected job advertisements at /careers.
During the first day of onboarding, you will meet other people who are joining Netguru at the same time as you. Together, you will take part in presentations about the best practices of working at Netguru, our culture, benefits, and development opportunities. Our IT Ops team will help you configure your laptop and share a few tips on data security. You will also meet our CEO, who will give you some insight into Netguru’s values and plans for the future.

After the remote onboarding, you will meet your mentor as well as your leader. Together with the mentor, you will go through a further checklist where you’ll learn about our processes and tools we use. After the onboarding, you’ll probably start working in a client or internal project.
