If you’ve applied to one of our clients’ open roles, or stumbled on this page looking for an open role… this page is for you.
At Magical Teams, we approach hiring differently and want to help you succeed and find your dream role/company.
You can read more about our hiring philosophy with some tips below!
Each hiring process is customized for the company and role. At minimum, there will be an application + mission (skills assessment) + interview. We include additional evaluation steps as needed and will communicate with you what the steps will be. We aim to be thorough, but efficient.
Our internal hiring team at Magical Teams oversees the entire campaign and typically loops in the team member(s) at the company with the open role in the interview stage. Think of us as the recruiter and the company you’ve applied to as the hiring manager.
Important: We 100% welcome requests for modifications to our process based on accessibility, accommodations, or other needs you may have throughout the hiring experience. Please feel free to let us know what we can do and we will do our best to help you thrive.
This is the most important step of our process. It’s an evaluation step for both company and candidates to get a real sense of whether it’s a fit to work together. Too often candidates get into a role and realize it’s not what they thought it would be. We custom create each mission’s parts based on the core types of tasks that the company needs to get done.
We tend to give more people an opportunity to do a mission as we’re able to find some amazing hidden talent that would have otherwise been overlooked from just the resume.
We review each mission received and have a numerical score rating system for various parts and aspects of the mission. This allows for a very thorough and as least biased as possible evaluation process.
We put very little significance on resumes or credentials. (With some exceptions for specialized skill sets.)
We look at direct and indirect experience/skills and believe it all can be applicable. As hiring matchmakers, we want to know you as a whole person, including: your strengths, gap areas, thought process, core values, work preferences, collaboration style, and more.
We care most about your capacity to develop skills, how you will BE as you’re doing the work day-to-day, and the environment and leadership that will best help you to thrive.
We consider a variety of factors depending on what’s going to result in the best outcome. For example… Some companies have more time and resources for training, others have less available. Some leaders are more direct and abrupt in their style while others are more collaborative and nurturing. Some environments are extremely fast-paced and execution oriented and others have more room for being strategic, experimental, and creative.
