Interview Process at GoodNotes

We are hiring across the board at GoodNotes. Check out what is like working with us at

Join us to do the best work of your life.

Overview of our interview process:

  1. Tell us what you are passionate about (30 - 45 minutes)
    • First phone interview with a senior team member
  2. Show us what you could build (2 - 4 hours)
  3. Meet the founder and the team (6 hours)
    • Full day on-site interview with us at our office
      1. Meet our founder, Steven
      2. Meet the whole company over lunch.
        • As a way for the team to know you better, we ask you to talk about any personal projects you may have or anything you are passionate about (10 minutes).
        • Free lunch on us, of course.
      3. Three to four one-on-two interviews with our senior team members. We may ask you to work on a problem in person with your machine.
        • For software engineering roles, we are mainly interested in your thought process, not if you remember all the syntax or framework interfaces of the chosen programming languages.
    • If you are not local, we may do one more video conferencing before flying you into Hong Kong.
    • We cover any economy class direct flight to Hong Kong and 3 nights of hotel (~US$100/night for hotel).
  4. We will get back to you within 48 hours of your on-site interview with either an offer or reasons why we may not be a good fit for you.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
