The charlie team

What is Charlie?

At Charlie, we believe that company culture will make or break your business.

Now, we want to combine the efficiency of software with the intuition of human expertise – and build a tool that helps every small company craft the culture they need to thrive.

    That’s why we’ve spent the last five years building our culture-focussed HR software and a one-to-one support service we call HR Advice.

    We want to give our team ownership over how they work so they can find a balance that works for them.

    Our Hiring Process

    We’re committed to building a company that’s truly representative of the society we live in, and where every team member can feel that they belong. That’s why we challenge ourselves to make each and every one of our hiring processes as fair and equitable as possible.

    We do all our interviews remotely. The process usually looks like the one outlined below – but if you make an application, we’ll send you a more detailed breakdown ahead of time.


    Step 1

    Initial phone call

    Step 1 is an introductory phone call with the hiring manager. They tend to last around half an hour.


    Step 2

    First stage interview

    Next up, you'll have a first video call with the hiring manager, lasting about 45 minutes or an hour.


    Step 3

    Skills test

    You'll then be invited to complete an expertise test at home (we don't expect you to spend more than 1-2 hours on this).

    Finish line

    Step 4

    Final stage interview

    The final stage is made up of a few different parts – a 'meet the team' call, a chat about your skills test and finally, an interview with either our CEO or Chief of Staff.
