We’re honored you’re exploring career opportunities at Meter. We want you to feel comfortable and confident while interviewing with us.
We put together a few answers to frequently asked questions below. If you have any questions throughout the process, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org
Be curious: You’re interviewing us as much as we’re interviewing you. We hope you’ll take every interaction with our team as an opportunity to learn more about our culture, our products, our people, and the work you’ll be tackling.
Share your motivations and ambitions: We want to understand what motivates you at work and the professional goals you’re pursuing. Our hiring process aims to help you gauge alignment between these interests and our needs.
Yes. It’s crucial that we hire people who are kind and ambitious. Some antecedents to these qualities include optimism, rigorous thought, curiosity, a proclivity to learn and teach, conscientiousness towards others, and optimizing for the long-term.
Additional traits we look for in our colleagues:
Patience, focus and resilience: Meter’s vision for the future of internet infrastructure is bold, ambitious, and a long-term endeavor. Joining a company at our stage of growth isn’t for everyone. Currently, Meter is a collection of small, fast-growing teams. We’re looking for people who are patient, focused, and excited to define our unique approach.
Excellent communication: The ability to clearly convey ideas is paramount to success at Meter. We document most of what we plan and do, so the ability to write effectively and enjoy the writing process is important.
Technical aptitude: The vertical solution Meter provides — cutting across hardware, software and operations — is uniquely complex. We’re particularly keen to speak with candidates who are excited by the challenge, and eager to help us solve tough problems.
Proclivity for learning and teaching: We’re proud of the team we’ve built, and the expertise we collectively bring to our work. That said, our potential for ongoing growth is much greater than our current capabilities. We improve constantly because we enjoy learning from and helping each other.
Our ultimate goal is to gain evidence on whether Meter is a good fit — culturally and functionally — given your professional experience, ambitions, and working style.
The interview process begins with introductory calls led by a member of Meter’s recruiting team and/or the hiring manager. The purpose of these conversations is to understand your motivations, and to get a feel for how your past experiences shape your approach and skillset. We also want to introduce you to Meter, share details about how the team currently operates, and describe some of the projects we’re tackling.
Writing is central to how we work. We generally ask candidates to think through a problem the team is currently grappling with. For engineering candidates, the exercise involves writing code, whereas non-engineering candidates may be asked to conceptualize a document or create a presentation. We’ll gather evidence on your writing, coding and/or problem solving skills, and you’ll gain greater insight into some of the problems we’re striving to solve.
These interviews are an opportunity to meet with individuals in similar roles and cross-functional colleagues.
Most of our interviews are still conducted remotely. As it becomes safer to interact in person, we look forward to inviting candidates to meet with us in person at our office.
