We review each application we receive and arrange interviews for short-listed candidates. After a first interview, we either proceed to second interviews or inform you of an unsuccessful application. Second interviews usually consist of a technical or creative task, depending on the role. If you’re successful in this round, we then decide to make an offer or go into negotiations. And if the stars align and the moon is in its 2nd quadrant, we may just have a new Itopian!

Please note, we get quite a few applications for our jobs, so if you don't hear from us one of two things has happened:
