How do you apply?

Our mission is ‘startups for everyone’, and that means everyone. Tech has global and multicultural reach. We strongly believe that diversity is a tremendous asset in every part of life, including business, and that no one should be held back by their background or culture. It is our responsibility to ensure that our team and our community reflects this by being diverse, inclusive, equal and fair. If this resonates with you, then we want to hear from you.

We hire by posting a job description on our website and other online job boards, asking applicants to complete an application form with specific role related questions and to submit a tailored CV.

We conduct a panel interview and a task as part of our interview process. We then start a 3–6 month probationary period where we encourage open communication to ensure that we do everything we can to set you up to succeed in the role.
