Learn more about our culture
At ABBYY, our values are transparency, simplicity, and respect, and our guiding principles are “do the right thing,” “be a team player,” and “think like a customer.”
Demonstrating these qualities and being able to talk about instances in the past when you showcased them can be beneficial in the process. Have a think and come prepared
Practice makes perfect
Depending on the role, you may be asked to go through one or more technical interviews or a take-home test. These are an opportunity for you to showcase your skills and prove how your work can contribute to ABBYY’s progress.
Our recruiter will provide you with all the necessary resources to help you prepare for these tasks. Take advantage of these resources and practice your skills to ensure that you are ready to present your best self.
There are no stupid questions
During the hiring process, don’t hesitate to ask questions and address any concerns you may have, either with the recruiter or the various people you will meet during the interviews.
It’s essential to have a clear understanding of the expectations and requirements of the role, so be sure to communicate and clarify any doubts. After the interviews, we will try to get back to you within 2-3 business days.
Our team is always happy to help and provide answers and guidance throughout the process.
It's your time to shine
When it comes to presenting your skills and experience, it’s essential to highlight your relevant achievements and how they can help you excel in the role.
Be sure to illustrate your critical thinking, attention to detail, and problem-solving skills, as these are essential traits we are looking for in our candidates.
As mentioned previously, technical roles often involve both a technical interview element as well as a take-home test/challenge aimed at assessing the candidate’s skill and understanding their approach.
Avoid these common mistakes
Some common mistakes we have seen that you can avoid are: not reviewing the job description in detail to be able to talk about previous experience that specifically relates to the requirements of the job, rushing and not taking your time with tasks, and not applying critical thinking and showcasing a deep understanding of the specific area you are applying for.
Be open about areas where you might need to improve a skill or where you do not have as much experience as you’d wish. Instead, tell us what you are doing to improve and achieve the desired skill level.
At ABBYY, continuous learning is paramount, so you will make a better impression by being honest and demonstrating a growth mindset.
Keep an open mind
Even if you are not selected for a particular role, we encourage you to keep an open mind and explore other opportunities within our company.
Our recruiters can provide suggestions and guidance on how to develop your skills and knowledge to better align with our current vacancies.
Some characteristics we are looking for include being a team player, being able to work in international teams, attention to detail, solution orientation, and having a positive outlook.
As long as you showcase these traits and you prove to be a great asset for us, we will try to find another role that might be a better fit. We encourage you to be open-minded and take the process as a learning opportunity.
