What the application process looks like

  1. Apply: Introduce yourself and send us your resume at
  2. Screen: Our Head of Engineering will reach out to schedule a 50-minute virtual/in-person interview if it looks like a good fit. This first interview will be centered around sharing more about Codex as a company, the role, your interests + values, and pair programming on a technical question.
  3. Team Interviews: After that initial screen, you may then have 2-3 virtual/in-person technical interviews with members of the team. The technical interview questions will include a mix of logical problem solving, pair debugging, and system & process design.
  4. Final Round: If all goes well, you’ll then have a chance to speak with the CEO and meet the team in person!
