Take-home exercise This will be a technical exercise that we expect to take 1-2 hours in total. It will resemble the kind of work you will actually do, so it can help us assess your strengths and different abilities.
Technical debrief interview If we're impressed with your exercise, we'll discuss it with you to understand why you made certain choices and what you might have done differently
Offer 🎉 At this point we are all suitably convinced that you and Chameleon are a great for each other, so we'll agree on your compensation and start date!
We expect to reply to you within ~1 week of you submitting the application form IF we are interested in setting up a call. Once we agree on the offer, we hope you can begin as soon as possible!
Just a note to communicate that we invest in our new teammate onboarding as much as our recruiting process:

There will be regular check-ins to ensure you’re getting up to speed.
Early on, you will “pair” as well as have your own independent work (e.g. enhancements to existing functionality) as you gain confidence to take on new projects end-to-end.
You will receive continued support from a team that cares deeply about your success. 🤗
