Hiring Process FAQs:

  • What are some of the benefits and perks?

    • Every other week is a 4 day work week!

    • A professional development stipend is available for every employee to use towards improving their expertise and soft skills.

    • Beyond providing a work laptop, we have a “Work From Home” stipend available for employees to help make their home working space better. 

    • Retreats: We hold retreats every year where team members get together in a beautiful location to brainstorm and just have a fun time.

    • We close the office for the last 2 weeks of December so everyone can enjoy time with family and friends during the holiday season.

    • As an analyst, you will be directly influencing the decisions of some of the largest institutions in the world. Since we are a small team, you will be in direct contact with institutional decision-makers who are trying to create large-scale social and environmental change through investments. 

  • What’s your policy on remote work?

    • We embrace team members’ flexibility to work remotely. For cities that have more than 4 employees, we encourage the team to meet at least once a week, but it is not required.

  • What will the hiring process look like?

    • Looking for a new job can be a daunting experience. Our approach is based in empathy and a desire for candidates to have a good experience. We want to give everyone an opportunity to display their strengths through their answers to our questions.

    • Hiring Process: Our timeline from application close date to decision typically takes ~4 weeks. Below are the steps week by week: 

      • Week 1 - Applications are blind reviewed: Our process is designed to remove bias by having your application answers randomly assigned to our team for review. Two team members score the responses based on a set of guidelines. The candidates with the highest average scores get invited to the interview round.  We do not look at resumes and we do not know whose answers we are scoring.  We embrace a diversity of working styles and backgrounds and believe that limiting applications to resumes fails to capture the full potential of an individual.

      • Week 2 - Behavioral Interview - The first interview is a 45-minute structured interview with non-senior team members.

      • Week 3- Senior Management Interview: The candidates with the highest average scores from the first round interview are invited to a second structured interview with Senior Management.

      • Week 4 - Decision / Potential Partner Interview: Usually, following the senior management interview, we will have a hiring decision made. However, we may opt for scheduling one more interview for the highest-scoring candidates.

  • How would you describe your culture?

    • Collaborative, inclusive, passionate, and fun. We encourage all team members to be their full selves at work. As a relatively small team, there are a lot of opportunities to have your voice heard. Our structure is relatively flat, and you are able to influence decisions, processes, and policies even as an analyst. 

  • What’s your commitment to DEI to life in culture and workplace?

    • We have an internal DE&I working group that is committed to improving BlueMark’s practices, culture, and employee experience. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are core tenets of our culture and we place a heavy emphasis on constantly learning and improving our own understanding of what that means for our business. At BlueMark, we believe that compassion, equity, diversity, and inclusion are fundamental to our success. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion manifests in three key ways:
