WHY WORK AT OFFICENINJAS

We’re on a mission to bring “Office Ninjas” educational resources, fresh content, industry connections, and sometimes, just a really awesome party. But no matter which angle we’re focusing on, it’s always about the community.

OfficeNinjas is happy to be a fully remote team—it gives us the opportunity to connect with more awesome folks around the globe. Each person on our team shares the same drive and commitment to impact people’s lives. We all have a bootstrap mentality which means we do more with less—counting on productivity tools, A+ communication skills, and creative solutions to move fast.

That’s where you come in. You’ll be encouraged to weave your own work style and ideas into existing ONHQ processes to shape the future of the company—and the Ninjas it serves. By enabling this diverse population of office pros to grow and connect, you’ll also impact entire organizations and vicariously prepare them for a more efficient, successful future.

OUR HIRING PROCESS

We want to see what people can do—not only what they’ve done. Big accomplishments and in-depth skill sets are hard to show when you’ve only got a few lines to make an impression. That’s why we walk through a few different steps before even looking at a person’s one-pager. When it’s all said and done, awesome candidates join ONHQ after going through the following hiring process. It both shows and tells what a person is great at, and helps both sides feel out our potential future together.

Step 1 – Take A Quick Quiz

Don’t worry—it’s not an IQ test. We’ve customized this quiz to meet our specific needs. It covers tech tools, work approaches, intuition, and some logic. Once you finish, you’ll get an automated response on the spot.

Why do we do this?
To get a brief overview of your work style, approach to handling situations, and familiarity with gadgets to ensure we’re on the same page before proceeding.

Step 2 – Tell us About You

You’ll fill out an application-style questionnaire that highlights your experience and gives you a chance to shine. Then, you’ll also attach your resume or provide your LinkedIn URL.

Why do we do this?
To understand details about your interests, story, and qualifications through past projects or samples.

Step 3 – Share Some Specifics

After the application phase, we’ll take things to the virtual equivalent of having coffee—email. You’ll share ideas and personal experiences, as well as answer a few open-ended questions specific to your skills and how they may fit in our team.

Why do we do this?
To communicate with each other remotely. Since our entire team is dispersed, this ability is important. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask us questions.

Step 4 – Video Chat with Us

Our team isn’t shy, which makes video calls a great way to collaborate and build relationships. From this point on, we’ll continue our email conversation through video or voice calls, starting with a relaxed chat about remote work and our team’s virtual office environment.

Why do we do this?
To give you an idea of what a normal work call would be like, while walking you through the specifics of how we operate.

Step 5 – Chat with a Founder

The call will include technical and role-specific questions. Afterward, we’ll discuss your professional goals, career trajectory, and anything else you want to share about your career path up to this point.

Why do we do this?
To understand your work philosophy and the experiences that have shaped your career thus far.

Step 6 – Work on a Solo Project

We’ll put together a paid test project just for you. It will take approximately 2-4 hours to complete and will be indicative of projects you’d actually do at ONHQ.

Why do we do this?
To see you in action—and to see where we could help you grow.

Step 7 – Work in Teams

You’ll work on actual ONHQ projects with other team members, with check-ins along the way. We consider this your immersion period. It’s 2-4 weeks of collaboration and magic-making in your area of expertise.

Why do we do this?
To collaborate across projects and teams to see how and where we can help each other most. We’ll review your quality of work, ability to meet deadlines, and overall culture fit.

Step 8 – Get Your Karate Chops Ready…

You’re in! Now, we’ll move to onboarding and other awesome aspects of ONHQ.
