A mix of the following interviews (depending on the role and level)

Hiring Manager Interview

Here you will meet with your future manager. They will be diving into your previous work examples in more details and trying to understand what impact you have had as well as your role in previous achievements. This is also a chance for you to meet your potential future manager and find out more about the role and company!

Stakeholder Interview

This is an interview with someone from outside the immediate team but someone who you might work closely with in the role. They will be looking at your domain knowledge and how you have worked with stakeholders in the past, how have you worked collaboratively to solve challenges together in the past?
