HELP CREATE CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY FOR ONE OF THE WORLD’S LARGEST MARKETS

Our passion for spreading knowledge and developing transformative technology is evident in our company culture.

Working at PickTrace

OWNERSHIP

On such a small team, every individual at PickTrace has personal ownership, specialization, and critical impact. Whether it’s our software’s architecture or our client implementation process, we’re still designing and building many elements of our product and operations from the ground up. Every team member is a decision-maker and an owner.

Camaraderie

Collaboration and fun are in our DNA. Our office environment is casual, dynamic, honest, and cross-functional. We eat lunch every day at the same table, teaching one another about multi-cultural foods from Indian to Brazilian to vegan. Ping pong is our constant background noise, and our Slack is full of food, puppy, baby, and #twinning photos.

Professional Growth

We nurture a culture of learning and professional development. PickTrace team members enjoy autonomy and opportunity to take on big challenges, as well as support and coaching to meet those goals. PickTrace’s growth trajectory and market position also mean that each individual’s career can progress in many directions and with vast potential.

Fast Pace

Our mission to transform agriculture means that we move fast. Limited bureaucracy, high energy, competitive spirit, horizontal structure, and autonomy are our recipe for doing quality work at a fast pace. In 2019, we grew our headcount from 10 to 30 people, and everyone is hitting the ground at full speed.

Excellence

We’re proud of our high standards and commitment to OKRs. We’re building robust, complex, modern software and operations, with best-of-breed technologies, world-class talent, deep customer empathy, and unparalleled market expertise. Every PickTrace team member is an A player who loves to solve interesting problems, and we reward great performance.

How we Hire

Our interview process is an in-depth opportunity to get to know each other. The PickTrace team is so small, every single person is a significant addition to the organization and the culture, and we care a lot about a great mutual fit – which means that we hope you become well acquainted with us, too! 

Before we even begin speaking with people, we build a role scorecard with a clear rubric for the job expectations and candidate requirements. Candidates whose experiences seem like a great fit can expect to start with an introductory phone interview (30 minutes) and then a longer phone or video interview that gets more technical or in-depth (1 hour).

After that, we may go briefly off-script and ask for portfolio examples or case studies from work experiences that you may have mentioned in the first couple of calls. You should also feel free to ask us for informational chats with team members, since you deserve to meet your future colleagues and team leaders as well!

The next and biggest step for you in our interview process is the on-site visit, which may range from 4 to 7 hours depending on the role. This full-day interview provides you the opportunity to hop on a whiteboard, brainstorm together, and share your skills with the hiring manager and team mates. For example, engineers will do architecture and coding sessions at this stage. These sessions will mimic real-life team meetings to the extent possible, because so much of our work at such an early stage is hands-on collaborative brainstorming.

Reference checks are final step in our hiring process. We weigh these extremely heavily, perhaps unconventionally so, but that’s because the best indicator of what kind of colleague someone will be is what kind of colleague they have been. We dive into in-depth conversations, sometimes over 30 minutes, with multiple colleagues (managers, reports, and peers) from your career trajectory. People and culture matter to us, and we hope we can learn that they matter to you too. 

Throughout our application and interview process, we strive to be in clear and regular communication with applicants. Our goal is that you never wait more than 1 week to receive an update or a request to proceed from the PickTrace team. If you have any questions, our co-founders, executive team, and team members are all happy to connect with you.
