The process.

A successful hiring process is two-sided. Just as we evaluate you, we’re being evaluated by you, and so, to ensure we each learn what we need to make an informed decision, we run a transparent process and are looking to assess the following:

  1. Compatibility: how have your previous experiences set you up to succeed in this role? Does your skill set match the role’s requirements?
  2. Cultural fit: do our values & ways of working align with yours? Will Magical be a suitable environment for you to thrive in?
  3. Coachability: we look for the combination of a proven track record and the hunger for future growth, as well as the mindset that unlocks it.

We know how stressful, competitive and time-sensitive a hiring process can get, so we make it a priority to be as transparent and considerate as possible. We keep our candidates informed of their status all throughout the process, knowing that Magical is here to last and hopeful that we’ll end up working together, eventually.
