OWNERSHIP

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

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.

IMPACT

PickTrace is making a positive difference in a pen-and-paper industry hungry for modern software. Today, PickTracers help tens of thousands of hardworking farm workers who provide healthy food for millions of people (and we’re still on the cusp of scaling up!). Our user-obsession means everything we build has meaningful, real-world impact.

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! 

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.

Intro Call and Video Interview

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

Portfolio

After that, we may go briefly off-script and ask for work examples or case studies 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!

On-site Visit

The next and biggest step for you in our interview process is the on-site, 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

Our final step is references. We weigh these extremely heavily, perhaps unconventionally so, 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 with managers, reports, and peers from your career. People and culture matter to us, and we hope that they matter to you, too.
