Product Manager Interview Process

Hi there! 👋 We look forward to meeting you!

Our interview process is structured to simulate typical day-to-day scenarios that you’d encounter at OpsLevel.  There won’t be any gotcha questions, but we have different interview slots that aim to cover the various aspects of your role and craft.  All slots are held remotely and don’t have to be scheduled consecutively, though they can be if you want.

We want to work with the best people at OpsLevel, so while recognize that our interview process is meticulous, it is a reflection of the high bar of excellence we hold ourselves to.

Changing jobs is an important milestone and we strongly believe that interviewing is a two way street.  Throughout the interview process, you will be meeting with lots of different OpsLevelers.  Please don’t feel shy about asking lots of questions.  We’re very transparent about what it’s like working here.

First Contact

1. Intro Call    

A 45 minute intro call with our one of our software dev managers. It’s a chat to get to know you better, learn about some of the projects you worked on in the past, hear what you’re looking for in your next role, and to tell you more about OpsLevel.

Virtual Onsite

1. Requirements Gathering    

We’ll give you a problem statement and walk through building a product around that.  e.g., “I want to build a service to stream movies over the Internet”.

2. Portfolio Review    

You walk us through a product or feature you created.  We’ll ask you a bunch of specific questions about your product development process (e.g., discovery, delivery, launch).

3. OpsLevel Review    

We give you access to an OpsLevel account a priori and you come to the interview with your experiences in using OpsLevel and questions / ideas for improvement.
