Stripe just announced a cool new idea for hiring techies, designers and product people — they call it “Bring Your Own Team” or BYOT.
Stripe’s blog post outlined the following steps for this group-apply approach:
- Any group of 2 to 5 people can apply as a team
- The group identifies which role they are applying for (even if it’s all for the same role)
- The group emails firstname.lastname@example.org and includes CVs for each person
- The group includes a brief description of how they know each other, including links to any work they’ve done together
- The group goes through the stages of the interview process together
- If the group is invited for an on-site interview, the group all comes in together and ideally works on one problem together
- If an offer is made, it is made to the whole group at the same time
- The group is encouraged to accept or decline as a group, though the individuals are free to accept or decline individually
Comment below if you think this “Group-Apply” going to catch on.
