Our hiring process
GETTING TO KNOW YOU
If your profile looks like a good match, we’ll schedule an introductory call to discuss your background and aspirations, and tell you more about the role.
If our initial chat goes well, we’ll invite you to talk in more detail about your skill set and past experiences.
As part of the more detailed assessment, we may ask you to prepare a complete task, coding assignment or prepare a presentation to help us understand how you think.
Finally, you'll be introduced to potential colleagues, who’ll provide a broader picture of life at SumUp, and answer any questions you may have about how we work.
Bar raiser interview
SumUp's hiring process is an essential part of our culture. In addition to experience, skills, and technical expertise, you'll go through an interview with a Founder's Mentality bar raiser - an interviewer from a different team brought in to give an unbiased perspective on your abilities as part of the final interview stage.
We're passionate about finding the right candidates for SumUp, focusing on hiring people who can make a real difference to our mission — to empower small merchants worldwide — this hiring vision is something we all take seriously. The people we hire will have a long-lasting impact on the service we provide for our merchants and the workplace we build together.
Our core values, Founder's Mentality, We Care, and Team First, are the bedrock of our culture and drive how we operate as a company and team. Founder's Mentality is crucial at SumUp because it is essential to successfully manage the autonomy we strive to create for every SumUpper and team. At SumUp, we want to empower you to act as a founder - making independent decisions that are right for our customers, teams, products and company.
