Our Hiring Process
The success of our company is the direct result of our amazing team. We understand that looking for a new position is hard and we are grateful that you have chosen to invest your time in our hiring process.
While we work to make our hiring process as simple as possible, it is thorough by design. Our hiring philosophy encompasses four principles. In order of relative importance, they are: values alignment, passion for security, cognitive capabilities and task relevant experience.
Once you have submitted your application, you can anticipate a response within 48 hours. While our process can vary by role, generally you can anticipate four interview stages:
Hiring Manager Interview
1. Discovery Call
The typical call lasts 30 minutes and is an opportunity for us to get to know more about you. We typically spend about 15 minutes asking you questions to learn more about your passion and interests, then we turn the call over to you for questions you have about Praetorian. In keeping with our core values, we Default to Open. Anything and everything is on the table.
2. Hiring Manager Interview
This is usually a one hour call, designed for you to speak with the hiring manager, get a feel for what a typical day might look like for your position, and learn more about your team. This interview is also structured in the 50/50 format to allow you plenty of time to ask questions.
3. Virtual Onsites
The number and length of virtual onsite interviews will vary depending on the role you are interviewing for. At this stage, we are looking to dive deeper into your task-relevant experience. That may include technical stations, work samples, or scenario presentations. This is also the stage where you get to meet more of the team you will be working with.
4. CEO Call
Your final call in the interviewing process is with Nathan Sportsman, Praetorian’s CEO. Nathan is one of the driving forces behind our People First culture, and he likes to meet anyone who has an interest in joining the team. This is a chance for the two of you to get to know one another.
There are a few pieces that will happen behind the scenes. We use Predictive Index to gather additional behavioral insights into who you are and how we can best support your growth in the future. We work to close out a hiring loop within two weeks, depending on your availability. Following the successful completion of the interview process, PeopleOps will begin the due diligence process.
