Our Recruiting Process at LeanIX

Step 1

Initial Call With Your Talent Acquisition Partner

Following your application, a Talent Acquisition Partner will contact you with some initial questions to make sure we have all the information we need. They’ll be your contact for the rest of the process and help you at every stage.

Firstly, they’ll work to understand your motivation for applying to LeanIX and offer you a better picture of the company. Depending on the role, they may also arrange a brief phone or Zoom interview, or ask you to complete our Insight Predictive Assessment, before we decide whether to invite you for an interview with the hiring manager.

Step 2

Interview With The Hiring Manager

The next step is a Zoom or in-person interview with the manager who is hiring for the role. This interview is specifically about the position you applied for. The hiring manager wants to get to know you better and will also ask detailed questions about your previous experience. This is your opportunity to showcase your talents and ask questions you have about the role and how it fits into the company.

Step 3

Key Interview

The “Key Interview” will be with the hiring manager and one or two relevant stakeholders, often leaders, and may span several sessions, depending on the role. This could be over Zoom or in person.

Every candidate will be asked in advance to prepare a relevant assignment or case study, which will be presented or discussed during the interview. This case study gives you as an applicant more clearance on the expectations and responsibilities of the role applied for. Analyzing your completed assignment will give us a clear picture of the way you work and the level of your skills.

If the Key Interview is conducted in person, you may have a chance to tour the office and see your future work space as well.
