Frequently Asked Questions
Are you working from home?
TechnologyAdvice is committed to the safety and wellness of each of our employees. In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, employees have the option to Work From Home (WFH) through at least August 1st.
The following measures have also been implemented for employees working in-office based on CDC and local guidelines:
- Social distancing between workspaces
- Mandatory mask policy
- Frequent sanitation of high-touch surfaces
- Room capacities for all conference rooms
- COVID-19 contact and exposure response policy
- Individually packaged catered lunches
How has your hiring process changed?
To ensure the safety of all parties we have changed the in-person interview and the in-house test drive to be virtual through Zoom or Google Meets. If doing a virtual interview with us, please be sure to confirm you have a reliable internet connection for video calls, and that your audio/visual are set up in advance.
How has your business been affected?
Apart from implementing additional in-office safety protocol and transitioning the majority of our team to work virtually - it hasn’t! We’ve been extremely fortunate to have experienced very little impact due to COVID-19. In 2020, we grew our team over 200%. We are still intentionally growing and continue to look for top talent.
Do you hire remote workers?
We do! Our job descriptions will specify if the role is able to be performed remotely, but if you have any additional questions please feel free to contact us at careers@technologyadvice.
What on earth does TechnologyAdvice do?
Our ‘what’ can be broken down into two focuses.
- We help people who are in need of new or optimized tech (primarily software) for their business get unbiased advice and data that helps them make a sound purchasing decision.
- We help technology companies find and get in front of their ideal customers, easing their burden of prospecting blindly. We shorten the sales cycle by doing the initial vetting and qualifying of a prospect.
I just submitted my application - what happens next?
We’re so excited you’re interested in working with us! After applying, you will receive a confirmation email from our applicant tracking system confirming your application has been received. We review every application that we receive, but unfortunately are unable to respond to every applicant directly. We will reach out to qualified candidates with an update on the next step within 5 - 7 days. Typically, a member of our HR team will conduct a phone interview with qualified candidates.
What are the steps in your hiring process?
Below is an overview of our standard hiring process:
- Resume Review
- Phone Interview
- Skills Assessment
- In-person Interview
- In-house Test Drive
Certain steps in the hiring process may be adjusted depending on the position or hiring manager.
What should I wear to my interview?
Congrats on making it to the in-person stage! We’re pretty casual around here most days, but also believe in making a good first impression. No need to dress up (unless that’s what you’re most comfortable in). Anything on the side of business casual should be fine. Our unofficial dress code is “wear whatever makes you comfortable that doesn’t make others uncomfortable.”
What does Work From Home look like at TechnologyAdvice?
Whether you will work remotely all the time, sometimes, or never, we want to ensure you have the tools you need to be successful. We will ship all technology and equipment that you need to do your job.
We also want to ensure that you are fully integrated into the culture and company, so you will have the opportunity to participate in virtual outings. If there is ever a chance for you to come down and visit one of our locations in Nashville, TN or Louisville, KY, there will be catered lunch and a desk space waiting for you!
I know someone who would make a great fit for TechnologyAdvice. Can I make a referral?
We’re so glad you’d like to recommend someone to work with us. We offer a $1,000 referral bonus for each eligible referral who is hired and completes 90 days of working with us. Please make note of our additional requirements below.
To be eligible for a referral bonus, the candidate you refer cannot previously exist in our ATS or have been previously reached out to by our HR team. Additionally, you must either a) email firstname.lastname@example.org with your referral prior to the candidate applying, and/or b) the candidate MUST list your name in the “Did someone specifically refer you to apply?” section of the application. Only one referral bonus will be paid for each successful new hire, be sure they name you!
I was referred to TechnologyAdvice from a friend, colleague, pet sitter, etc.
That’s great! Make sure that you list their name in the “Did someone specifically refer you to apply?” section of the application. Please only list one name. We may contact them for any further insight they may be able to provide.
I want to work at TechnologyAdvice, but I don’t see a role I’m qualified for/interested in.
We understand that waiting for the right role is really important. Fill out our general application to tell us a bit more about yourself and what you’re looking for in a position. We’re a fast growing company and we are always looking for talented folks to join. We’ll reach out if we have a role that’s a fit for you now or in the future.
How long does your hiring process take?
It varies based on the position, but on average it takes around 3-4 weeks from when you apply to when an offer goes out. Our priority is always on fit rather than timeline. We want to ensure that not only is a candidate a fit for us, but we’re a fit for the candidate.
I am a student. Do you have any internships?
Sometimes. We have had internships in the past, but we do not consistently offer an internship position. Any available internship opportunities will be listed on our careers page.
I interviewed, but I did not get the position. Can you tell me why?
There are varying factors that go into our hiring decisions. While it is not standard practice for us to offer feedback for every candidate that applies, we will happily provide any feedback if asked.
