How We Hire

At Vault Data, we are passionate about creating an open, inclusive, diverse and transparent environment for everyone. We are proud of our recruitment workflow and will ensure all candidates are treated fairly, equally, and without biases during their journey with us. Additionally, all our job adverts are gender-neutral, and we also have a gender-neutral recruitment panel.

Our interview process is either a 2 or 3-stage process (it is very rarely 3), and we even give candidates the option to choose how they would like to be assessed for technical interviews, as we understand people work differently from each other 🙂.

We prefer a technical discussion, a pair programming session, a design review, or a debate on agile anti-patterns, but if you prefer a take-home assessment instead, we have platforms that are easy to use. We don't expect you to spend more than 30 - 45 minutes of your valuable time taking the assessment!

Regardless of the outcome, we aim to give every candidate feedback and encourage candidates to provide us with one too!

We are an Equal Opportunities Employer

We are an Equal Opportunities Employer, an inclusive company with values grounded in equality and ethics, where we celebrate and embrace diversity. We are dedicated to providing equal opportunities to our existing employees and those considering joining us, and we believe that different perspectives and backgrounds are what make us successful.

We have a range of employees who are unique to themselves (neurodiversity, gender, ethnicity, and more), but we aim to be better. We welcome and encourage diverse applicants and will always listen and adapt to the needs of the individual.

Therefore, you are encouraged to apply regardless of your background, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, race, disability, social status, etc. All qualified applicants will receive equal consideration for employment regardless of any protected characteristics from the Equality Act (2010).
