Benefits of Working at Hibou:
The First Few Weeks (Outcomes)
The first task you will be working on is a self paced training program that includes videos and documentation that will provide you with a fundamental knowledge of the Odoo software. We divide this training program up into different apps and you will be expected to complete the lessons for 1-2 applications each week.
You will be responsible for not only reviewing the materials provided for each app, but also for practicing the skills and workflows that you learn in a test database.
Once you're comfortable with the materials for each application, you will be given a quiz that will test your knowledge and understanding of the application you've been studying.
You'll also be helping to refine our existing documentation for the provided apps. So, while you're learning, you'll also be given the opportunity to teach and explain the topics you're learning. We find this to be very helpful for cementing an understanding of the content.
Hiring Process + Other Things You Should Know
We want to ensure that everyone that's hired at Hibou is the right fit, so we have a multi-step hiring process that is outlined below:
Submit your application/resume
An email will be sent to you with a link to an assessment
This assessment is relatively short and shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes to complete. It includes job-specific questions or sample problems, as well as questions related to problem solving and how you work individually/with a team.
Note that, in order to move forward as a candidate for this role, this survey must be completed within 7 days of your application being submitted.
Hibou reviews the assessment and determines if we think there's a mutually good fit. If so, we'll reach out to schedule an interview.
If the first interview goes well, we'll call you back for a second interview to meet with some other team members.
Once both interviews are completed, if both you and Hibou would like to proceed, we'll send a small sample project. The sample project is not intended to take more than a few hours and is the final step in the interview process.
If you believe that you would be a valuable addition to our team, submit your resume and a sweet cover letter explaining why you’re the right person for the job!
You must be legally authorized to work in the United States.
