Sounds great, good luck! :)
Looks exciting! The value proposition really reminds of LayerVault. Is there a difference (besides the fact that there is no LayerVault anymore, so it's not really an alternative)?
I did it for a year and lived during this time in Paris, San Francisco, Bucharest, Berlin, Istanbul for a several month in each. I wrote a post about how it feels and why I did it: https://medium.com/digital-nomad-stories/how-it-feels-to-become-a-citizen-of-the-world-7a91989d2de0
Half of the time I worked on my own product with two co-founders that stayed in Tel Aviv (that's where I'm from). After our product failed I went back doing freelance in Product Design and working on several personal projects.
It was a great time and I learned a lot about work, myself and the world. If you can afford this kind of lifestyle, you should definitely do it for some time.
Let me know if you have any specific questions.
Those exersices are performed on-site and not remotely.
At this point candidates already know about the company and the specific department they are interviewed to.
They also meet their potential team mates before this exercise is performed, so they have context in order to decide if they are interested in being part of the team.
I agree, there are some exercises that might be more challenging for the 60-minutes framework. We preferred to share as many as possible so everyone can adjust it for her needs.
Broad exercises are used more indeed and they are working well for us so far :) However, I believe there is value in challenging designers with problems they are not necessarily having a domain knowledge in
We do not expect the candidate to deliver visuals, nor "complete" wireframes and user flows. We're mostly looking to see designer's ability to 1) analyse the problem, user needs, business needs 2) conceptualise it in a product 3) communicate it effectively. If your organisation has a better way to do it, I'd love to hear more about it!
Great choice, they are amazing! :)
You're right, I did a mistake, you should be able to apply it now!
