Our hiring process

The following steps outline a typical hiring process, which may vary depending on the position, team or seniority level.

Recruiter interview

Your first interview will likely be with one of our expert recruiters, lasting between 30 and 60 minutes. We focus on exploring your motivation, purpose, curiosity, transferable skills, and core values.

Hiring manager interview

During this interview, the hiring manager will provide detailed information about the role and team structure and discuss how you could be a match. At this stage, we'll assess the qualities of collaboration, technical skills, and proactivity.

Technical interview

As part of the more detailed assessment, we may ask you to prepare a technical assessment to help us understand how you think.

Team interview

Your potential colleagues will help provide a broader view of life at SumUp and answer any questions about how we work.

Bar raiser interview

You'll go through an interview with a bar raiser - an interviewer from a different team brought in to give an unbiased perspective on your abilities and values as part of the final interview stage.

Decision and offer

If you're successful, a recruiter will get in touch with an offer and officially invite you to join the team. That's when we'll walk you through our compensation package, including benefits, contract, starting date and other details.

Tips and tricks

Check out these tips from our Talent Acquisition team that will help you nail your interviews and make your application stand out from the crowd.

Tailor your resume to your dream job

You’ll often hear that you should tailor your CV to each job you apply for. Instead, we suggest that you think about your goals and personal values. Use that to imagine your ideal new job, company culture and the team you want to be part of. Now, make sure your CV is a good match for that. Include keywords that capture your must-haves and nice-to-haves.

Keep it short and sweet

Sometimes less is more – focus on showing the impact of your work and the main achievements for each position. Be mindful of readability – how enjoyable is it to read your CV? Ask someone who doesn't work in your field to read it and see if it's clear and engaging for them.

Show your values and personality

We believe that being professional is compatible with showing your personality. Be authentic and transparent about who you are and what is important to you – that will make it easier to find the right match.
