Frequently asked questions

Hiring process

What can I expect during the interview process?

During the interview, you’ll have an opportunity to speak with a Talent Acquisition Manager and share your motivation and expectations. You’ll also connect with the hiring lead and team members who will give you deeper insights about the role you’re applying for and Adjust. Some processes may also involve a take-home challenge, pair programming or a live presentation which gives you an opportunity to showcase your skills and aspirations beyond what’s shown on your CV and portfolio. Hiring Coordinators and our lovely AI bot Sunny, who supports efficient scheduling, will guide you through the process, so feel free to reach out to them if you need any clarification.

Are the interviews in-person?

The interview with the talent acquisition managers and hiring leads are done remotely. For the team interview, we would love to have you over at the office if you are based where the role is located. Due to COVID-19, all of our interviews are currently being held remotely.

For remote interviews, is the call a video or standard call?

It's up to you! We normally send a link for a video call. If you prefer a phone call, just let us know.

How long are the interviews?

Your interview can range anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on the type of interview you are having. Please be sure to have a stable internet connection available and test your camera and microphone prior to the interview.

How can I prepare for the interview?

Unless you’re working on a particular challenge to share during a team interview, there’s nothing particular to prepare for our interviews. But we do encourage you to take a look around our Adjust website to get to know us better and ask all the questions you may have.

What are the next steps after the interview?

We understand it can be nerve-racking waiting on that next email or call. We strive to get back to applicants within two days with feedback and next steps. If you haven’t heard anything from us after this time, please feel free to reach out.

Can I get more information about my interviewer?

Our coordinators will always let you know who you’ll be connecting with in the next step, whether it’s a Talent Acquisition Manager, a hiring lead or a member of the team (and feel free to Google or look them up on Linkedin).

What if I don’t see a role that applies to my background?

As an ever-growing company, we’re constantly opening new positions. If you don’t see a position that suits you at the moment, you can send us your CV via the general application on our careers page.

Can I be notified for new positions?

At the moment, we don’t have the option to send you notifications when new jobs are posted. Instead, you can sign up for job alerts on our LinkedIn company page.

Does Adjust consider applications that do not have experience in the industry?

We understand that our industry is niche, and not everyone applying will have previous knowledge or experience in mobile. That’s why we look at a candidate’s potential and not just their years of experience. We’ve had candidates come from all different industries and succeed at Adjust. No matter what your background is, we invest in a 3-week long onboarding journey to give you the tools you need for success in your new position. If specific experience in mobile is required for a role, this will be clearly stated in the job description.

Getting started in Berlin and life at Adjust

Will Adjust help me to obtain a work permit for Germany?

Absolutely. We’ll do our best to help you navigate applications for your visa, work permit or residence permit.

I’m new to Berlin, will Adjust help me to settle in?

Yes, we have relocation partners that will support you with tasks like finding a flat, kindergartens or schools, legal contract check, applying for health insurance, and setup of energy and internet providers.

I’m worried that my contract starts soon and I don’t have a place to stay in Berlin.

No problem — we'll get you a place to stay for your first few weeks in town and work on ensuring you find a new home here in Berlin.

What does the Adjust onboarding process look like?

Our onboarding is unique in that all newcomers fly to Berlin for three weeks,no matter where they’re based, to take part. (Note: Due to COVID-19 related restrictions our onboarding is done 100% remotely - but as fun as always!) The training is designed and taught by our in-house Education team so that everyone gets an understanding of the Adjust product and the mobile industry. In your first month at Adjust, you will also be invited to mystery lunches, where you have the opportunity to meet colleagues from various teams. Check our short video to get a better idea of what to expect.

Mentoring and Leadership

A mentor will guide you through your first few weeks to introduce you to the secrets of the business and organization and show you how at least one of our five coffee machines work.

Your manager will conduct regular check-ins with you to make sure you are aligned on goals and you feel fuelled with the best support.

Where is Adjust located currently?

Our headquarters are in Berlin, and we also have offices in San Francisco, New York, London, Istanbul, St. Petersburg, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai, São Paulo, Seoul, Tel Aviv, Bengaluru, Singapore and Mexico City.

Are there opportunities to meet colleagues from different teams and locations?

Absolutely! In addition to regular company and team events, we host a Friday brunch for our team in Berlin – with caterers laying out a five-star-hotel worthy buffet (freshly-made pancakes included). In San Francisco, Adjusters are treated to a catered lunch every Thursday. Occasionally, we host international after work dinners where Adjusters cook for coworkers representing their national cuisine. And our biggest highlight is our annual company retreat where all Adjusters come together for a week as a way to review and celebrate our work, as well as recharge batteries for the coming year. Please note: Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to organize any big in-person events. But we all hope to be back to normal very soon again and kick off some amazing events to celebrate our teams, growth and success!
