If you apply for an engineering job, here's how the interview and selection process will look.
Nobody is ever thrilled with the selection process for a new job, so - to make it easy for you - here's what to expect while applying for an engineering job at Infobip. We really try to put you in the focus and and give you direct feedback during the whole process. While we can't promise that we will hire you, we can make the process a positive experience.
- You will talk to our Talent Acquisition Specialist
- How to get ready: Your CV and a short call
Before this conversation you will most likely receive a call from our Talent Acquisition team to arrange the most suitable time for the call. This is the right the moment for you to polish and update your CV or LinkedIn profile. Feel free to choose one or both, and send it to us before the interview. You will need a laptop with a camera, as we would really like to see you. You will get the interview invite via email as a link for Microsoft Teams, You don’t need to have an account, you can simply connect via your favorite browser. We can even do it via phone, but please not while you are driving.
We will start with a short general introduction about Infobip, since we would like you to know who we are... and continue with a short overview of your current and past experiences and you will guide us through some specific project and your role in it.
We like to talk about tech, so please let us know:
- What tech stack are you using;
- What technologies are of your interest;
- Your knowledge and practical skills about different types of architecture;
- Your coding practices, e.g., code review. We'd love to know how you test your code and how you deploy your code, monitor it and scale it and whatever else would you like to share with us.
Don't worry, this of course depends on your seniority level, so we do not expect to hear everything.
Oh yeah, we would like to hear how you work in teams and how you organize your work. Do you work in agile or some other framework?
At the end we will talk about what motivates you as well as what your expect from this position, present you with opportunities in Infobip and answer any question you might have. And yes, we will talk about expectations on salary and benefits and tell you where it fits for us.
We will give you a call with our feedback and arrange the next step within 1-2 days. If we decide not to proceed with the application we will contact you to explain why.
- You will talk to our Software Engineer and Talent Acquisition Specialist
- Talk at our office or online
If possible, we would like you to join us at one of our offices to meet you. You might need to bring your laptop with installed IDE with you, but the Talent Acquisition Specialist will confirm this prior to the interview. If we are also doing this interview online, you will get the interview invite via email and link for Microsoft Team once again.
To prepare, refresh your knowledge and think about the technologies that you use everyday and basic concepts around them. And relax, we will probably drink coffee or tea during the interview.
After you give us a short introduction about your experience we will go a bit more in depth about the technologies you are using and how well you know them. We promise not to ask random questions and definitions that you may need to know for some of your college exams. We focus what is relevant for our everyday work and your understanding how to solve some problems using technology. This is an opportunity for you to get to know us a bit better and we always say it is not interrogation but a conversation, so please feel free to ask the questions along the way.
You may have noticed that we mentioned something about IDE, so yes, there is going to be some coding practice or algorithm challenge that may differ depending on the tech stack and position. You will get all the information from our Talent Acquisition prior the interview to prepare and avoid any stress.. We would like to use this opportunity for you to meet the rest of the team and to ask any question about us and our way of work.
We will give you direct feedback during the interview and if we decide to proceed organize the final step.

This final interview includes complementary feedback from both sides.
Well, it is a go or no-go situation. We will communicate the offer details to you, or if we do not decide to proceed, we will give you some suggestions on how to improve.
