Frequently Asked Questions
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?
TechnologyAdvice receives a large number of applications for our positions, and unfortunately, we are unable to respond to every applicant. 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 bring in the suit and tie (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.”
I’m happily employed but I know someone who would make a great fit for TechnologyAdvice. Can I make a referral?
Anyone can make a referral, you do not need to work at TA to refer someone. The $1,000 referral bonus is only paid if we actually hire the candidate and they complete 90 days of working with us. Please make note of our 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 his or her 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 but our goal is to move through the process efficiently. We’ve had candidates receive offers within one week of their application submission and others have taken a few weeks. 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 meet all the requirements 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.
