Ready to apply? 💌

  • Great! Send us a CV and give us some context why you’d like to join Vable and feel you’d be a great add. All applicants are screened by Sarah, our Head of People and Operations or Suzanne, our People & Operations Exec, and may be called for an interview throughout anytime of the open role. If we think there might be a fit, an intro call will be set up, or we will let you know that we won’t be proceeding.
  • Intro Call: You will meet Sarah or Suzanne first on a 30 minute zoom call; you don't need to prepare anything in advance. The idea is to see if it's a good option for both Vable and you. It’s time to discuss your background a little more and for us to answer any questions about the role, team, company or culture.
  • Interview: If after the intro call, we’re both excited to proceed, you will be invited to a second stage interview with Matthew; CEO and Diana; Sales Executive. This interview will cover your experience, behaviours and personal traits. It should take no longer than 1 hour.
  • Final Interview: Will usually be with Sarah, Head of People and Culture and may include another applicable Manager. This may include a role play or technical task and will be a chance for you to learn more about our company, culture and team and a chance for us to delve deeper into any areas of your background not yet discovered. This will take no longer than 1 hour and this is the final stage. For most candidates we expect the whole process to be no longer than 3-4 weeks.

🎥 We record all of our interviews, with your permission. It makes it easier as we are globally distributed and various members of the interview panel can rewatch and give you their full attention without having to take notes.
