Long interview processes are stressful and boring, and that is not us 😉

We want to make sure that everything runs smoothly.

So here you will have three stage interviews:

1- A chat with one of our great recruiters.
2- A zoom or in person chat with two of our Sales colleagues where they will ask you detailed questions about your knowledge and your experience.
3- A Final Chat with our CCO (either in our office or via Zoom). ​​During this interview, further questions will be asked. We will also ask you to prepare a (very) short exercise. The goal will be to understand your PowerPoint and presentation skills. 

But don’t worry; everything will be explained to you step by step by your recruiter. 

Here is a little tip for you during those stages: 

Collaboration is extremely important to us, so don't hesitate to share your thoughts, ask questions, ask for help if needed, etc at any stages! 


Diversity and inclusion are key to a great workplace, and Adaptive is better when it’s more representative of the world around us. We want everyone to feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work without any fear of judgment or negativity. All we ask is that our colleagues are respectful, collaborative, passionate about what they do, and have the skills needed to be successful in their roles.

Background check: the employment/engagement is subject to an acceptable background check that will be run by Adaptive
