About the interview process
Once we’ve received your resume and contact details, we’ll arrange a call with one of our senior Elixir developers, providing you with an opportunity to ask us questions about the company, work environment, projects, teams and anything else about Telnyx that piques your curiosity. We’ll also cover some basic technical questions to ensure that your skills are a match for the challenges at Telnyx.
The next stage requires you to solve a programming task that will take a couple of hours to complete and give you an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge in either Elixir or the programming language in which you are most confident; we know not everyone excited about Elixir has professional Elixir experience.
The third stage is developing a solution to a programming problem with some of our team via a video conference. This is not a whiteboard exercise and we encourage you to work how you would normally i.e. use your editor of choice, Elixir Docs, Stack Overflow, Google. We’re interested to see how you solve problems and communicate your thinking.
Following the code challenge you’ll meet people from teams across the engineering group to give you the best sense of the culture and to challenge your skills in designing complex systems.
