The DuckDuckGo Hiring Process

We try to exemplify our core values of building trust, questioning assumptions, and validating direction in everything we do, and look for great people who share these values.

Our non-traditional hiring process is no exception. We challenge the idea that hiring should solely be reliant on interviews, and base our decisions on demonstrable work performance. These projects give both you and us the opportunity to validate if there is a good fit by actually working together. We want to give you an opportunity to showcase your abilities, and eventually have you experience what it's really like to work as an equal member of the team you will be joining.

So how does this actually work?

  • You apply for an open position!
  • If your application is a good match for the role, you’ll have a virtual chat with the hiring manager.
  • You get the opportunity to show us your skills through a short, paid project.
  • If all goes well, your internal contract period begins to see if we both want to make it official.

We are happy to work through the process on a flexible timeline around your schedule and current employment status.
