Advice to fans, X (formerly Twitter) is recruiting. Yes, you read correctly, the social network which has separated 75% of its teams since its acquisition by Elon Musk plans to hire 70 people to occupy certain engineering positions or in its advertising departments.

The American media Fortuneis precisely interested in the process of selecting candidates, and they will be entitled to a real obstacle course to land a job paid between 100,000 and 300,000 euros per year. A job which is also less attractive than in the past, without the free catering and other services classically offered by the big Silicon Valley firms.

Praise of la frime

X ​​is looking for people who are extremely motivated and malleable enough to agree to manage emergency situations in incongruous times. Elon Musk is also known for not bothering too much with the Labor Code or night shifts. We learn in passing that most of the people interested are fans of the entrepreneur who want to get closer to him.

The application is in the form of a form to be completed online to test how the future employee will carry out their mission. True to Elon Musk's mindset, the company recruits talented people to code and create big features. We know that the billionaire wants X to become an all-in-one application where you can meet people, make calls, or even make purchases.

Sources Internals who spoke with Fortune explain that recruiters expect candidates who boast and praise their exceptional talent. Modest people or people prone to imposter syndrome refrain!

If you have been made redundant, no need to apply

Under cover of anonymity, the person interviewed takes issue with this selection process. She estimates that if Elon Musk and his right-hand men expect to recruit “people who have been engineers for 20 years and have done incredible things on paper” , the reality is very different. It happens that candidates who have an exceptional CV and know how to sell themselves have not done anything really interesting in coding for many years.

Once passed this first selection, the future employee must go to a technical interview with the recruiter which will be followed by a pre-selection as well as an on-site interview. The final decision then goes to Elon Musk, and he has very specific criteria in mind.

Under no circumstances does he want to recruit people who have been fired in the past. Ironically, the social network had to quickly recall fired employees to continue operating its service. The American media also speaks of a cultural fit necessary to land this position without giving more details. If these selection techniques have not put you off, you can apply by going to the dedicated address here.
