More than ever, we’re craving human interaction and social connection - a catch up with a long-lost teammate can lift your mood and help you feel #verytogether. Here at Very, we have a number of colleague-led communities to help everyone connect and lift each other up. From PAVE (Parents at Very), a place to swap parenting stories and support, to our LGBT network sharing resources and raising awareness, and WAVE (Women at.. you guessed it!) exchanging skills and sharing book and podcast recommendations. There's something for everyone! #lifeattheverygroup

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Very Group (London, England)


    It was three stages. First stage was the acquisition team, it's just to get to know you. Second stage is with the hiring manager, the aim is to know whether you're a fit to the company's culture. The final stage, with the hiring manager again and a senior Software engineer, was about the technical aspect of the job.
    The process was smooth and quick. The guys from the acquisition team will accompany you in every step which was really good

    Why Very? Tell me about yourself? and all the technical questions
