Our number one priority is to ensure that all our engineers feel supported and thrive at Form3 from day one!
Our onboarding process is as streamlined and lightweight as possible. As a fully remote company, we have tailored our working practices and onboarding to ensure that new joiners are up to speed as quickly and painlessly as possible.
All new starters are assigned a buddy, who will actively support them during the onboarding process and beyond.
New engineers receive their laptop and essential kit before they start. Your login details will be sent to you, so you can easily log on and meet everyone on your first day.
No need to stress about installing or preparing anything beforehand. Your buddy will help you get up and running during your first few weeks, so just focus on resting up before your first day.
