Our recruitment process

We do not have an HR director, all applications are evaluated by your fellow future colleagues with Maaike our chief coordinator helping everyone.


1. We review your CV
Our technical team reviews your technical skills and see if you can move to the next step. If not, now is not the right time, we do not have the projects that suit you or you do not have the technical level yet and in this case we will keep in touch for later :)

2. Getting to know each other

With a video call or at the office. The purpose is to understand why you applied, why we invited you, to introduce Lunatech and how we work. It is above all understand your background and know your projects and see if we'd be a match.

If not, now is not the right time, we do not have the projects that suit you or you do not have the technical level yet and in this case we will keep in touch for later :)

3. Technical Assessment

We send you a small technical assessment to do and we'll plan a review of your solution with you. You should be able to do the tasks within a few hours and it will help us understand where you are at technically.

4. Technical Assessment Review

You meet one of our experts in the field that interests you, it is also an opportunity to help you do your self-assessment and know your level. During this review we understand how far advanced you are technically and in term of software architecture, how well you understand and master software tooling. You leave potentially having met your future technical manager and hopefully you learned a few tricks.

If we are not convinced by your technical explanation, now is not the right time, we do not have the projects that suit you or you do not have the technical level yet and in this case we will keep in touch for later :)

5. Final interview

During this interview, we'll talk a bit more about you the person. In order to offer you a personalized course if you join Lunatech, you meet with a member one of our directors as well as Lunatech HR person.

Finally, we'll discuss the conditions and see if we can come to an agreement. We'll see more about you the person during this interview and your career wishes.

You leave with a vision of both the values we share but also the projects we propose.

6. And after?

Two possibilities are available to you:

The first: all the lights are green on both sides, in agreement with the technical department and the directors, we make you a proposal.

The second: now is not the right time, we keep in touch through our blog articles, our events and we will try again later!
