  • 1. How can I best prepare for the interviews? 

    Research. There’s blogs, there’s social media accounts, there’s a lot to discover and, believe us, that information will not go unnoticed in the interviews.

    Practice. It’s not a secret that a question “please introduce yourself” is something that will be the start of many interviews and this is surely something you can prep for, it will ease your stress! 

    2. How do I know which team I’ll be allocated to? Which city?

    Some teams are based in Paris, some in Bordeaux, therefore, it depends on this. You can share your flexibility in the application. Paris office (199 rue Championnet 75018) & Bordeaux office ( 123 Rue Lucien Faure, 33300). The offices are brand new & top-notch, I promise you :)

    3. What is the application & recruitment process?

    The application is straight forward - you attach your CV and answer some filtering questions. You choose the language you prefer to use in the conversations, except the initial call with HR. The rest of the process: 

    - 30 min HR call with the recruiter (in English);

    - 48 hours to work on a technical test;

    - 30-45 minutes interviews (one of couple) to meet the team & evaluate your skills and cultural fit

    4. Is the internship paid? What else is in the package?

    Yes, indeed, the internships are paid. You also get meal vouchers, 6 days off throughout the 6 months & support for public transport expenses. And some discounts on Back Market’s platform, bien sûr! 

    5. How are the interviews conducted?

    Phone call with the recruiter and then video calls (we use Zoom!).
