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 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 technical interviews with members of the team. The technical interview questions will include a mix of logical problem solving, pair programming, and system design.However, we will share the type of questions with you in advance so you have an opportunity to prepare before these interviews - we feel this is more reflective of the “real-world” and focuses less on one’s ability to “think on their feet”.
  4. Final Round: If all goes well, you’ll then have a chance to speak with the CEO and meet the team in person!
