What You'll Bring:
Nice to Haves (Preferred):
We want you at your best, and won't be giving you any gotcha-style questions - we aren't like that. We want to get to know you, hear about what you're interested in, and learn about what you hope to do in the future.
You should familiarize yourself with these resources before continuing:
a. Our company’s blog to learn more about the space we’re working in and where we write about landlord insurance.
b. Check out our Twitter and LinkedIn to get a glimpse of how people interact with our brand and product.
c. Some posts with and about us around the web (Inc 5000,Estate Innovation,Geek Estate Blog,Business Wire),Innovate State)

You'll first talk to Kara or Rebecca on a 30 minute call; you won't need to prepare anything in advance. The goal of this conversation is to get to know you and mutually explore if we might be a good fit for each other. You'll learn more about Obie and have a chance to ask any questions about our company, team, culture, and product.
If you advance to the next stage in the process, you'll get to have a 45 minute video interview with the hiring manager for this role, David. This discussion will be more technical in nature to ensure you have the skills needed to be successful in the role.
This role requires critical thinking, strong problem solving, collaboration, and communication skills, so we'll also present you with a short exercise to complete to provide you a chance to flex those muscles. You will be able to complete this exercise on your own time, so please be thorough and use the resources available to you. We'll be looking to see your writing and communication skills, empathy, general demeanor, and ability to leverage your accounting knowledge to solve problems. More on this when you get there!
Since you'll be joining a close-knit team, we'll ask you to meet other people in the company so we get to know each other a bit better.
