Our recruitment process
As a company, we place a high importance on creating a working culture that is supportive, whilst having a focus on embracing our employees and their potential growth. Our values are embedded into everything we do, this includes our recruitment process. The process is, therefore, curated to reflect the need to maintain our strong culture and high quality working environment. Breaking the mould of traditional recruitment process, we have designed a very unique "employee led" process that is transparent and also ensures candidates meet a cross section of the company in both virtual/in person settings.
The recruitment process is divided into various stages allowing us to get to know you better but with a focus. Each stage will help us to understand how suitable you are for the role and the company. However, we believe in putting our best foot forward. That is why each of these stages will allow you to have the chance to meet various current employees with Pace Integration, get to know us better and make a decision on whether we are the right company for you.
We start the process with an initial screening of the candidate, this is usually a quick phone call. At this stage we are doing a quick screening to better understand your suitability beyond what's on paper. This is also a great opportunity for you to ask us more questions about the role!
Then we proceed with full length interviews, these are the competency interviews first followed by technical interviews. The competency interview is where we look at your core skills in more detail and match you as an individual to the skills required. If you are seen as an initial good fit for the company, we then follow up with a technical interview. As the name suggests, this is a chance for us to evaluate your technical understanding and skills.
All candidates who move through these interviews are able to get a flavour of our culture and who we are as a company, through the various interactions they have with different colleagues.
The recruitment process is concluded with an in person assessment day. This again allows you to experience what our office culture is like, meet more of our colleagues and spend the day understanding your role. From our perspective, we would like to have final conversations around your suitability, along with the chance for you to talk to our CEO on a one to one basis.
We hope to help you grow through the process and increase your understanding of the importance of integration. The excitement to work in such a fast growing environment should be more and more as you go through our recruitment process and we aim to leave you wanting to work in integration and with APIs!
Our culture and values
Here at Pace, we embrace our company’s values and it’s no coincidence that one of them is ‘Celebrate success!’. Our Social committee team which is formed from Pace employees coming from all teams and departments of the organisation, oversees the social events that make to a great extend our Pace culture. You will attend unique quarterly events with different fun activities, typically followed by dinner and drinks at high end London venues and beyond. Our employees have full influence on how we develop our social culture.
Of course, that’s just one of our five Pace values we embrace and have very close to our heart. These values are:
Transparency: Be open and share information and knowledge, with self reflection
Inclusion & respect: Think of other in the everyday and be kind
Push the baseline: Strive for micro-wins throughout each step of the journey
Be accountable: Take pride in ownership of your wins and learnings from the challenges
Celebrate success: Recovering key achievements throughout the journey
Equality and diversity
Inclusion & respect' is one of our company's values, and we can't emphasize enough how important this team's diversity is to us. In an industry where the percentage of women in large tech companies sits at 25%, based on 2022 stats, we believe that gender balance and diversity means more innovative ideas, a better working environment and a more inclusive business. We are very proud that at Pace women currently make up 42% of our Team, since we recognise the problem within Technology companies and our leaders have made this a priority from day one to invest and grow a talented and diverse workforce. We also have an unbelievable cultural diversity, that keeps our team very alive, and vibrant.
The biggest fear within the workplace is not knowing where you fit in or an inability to express yourself. We must always ensure that we consider the views and feelings of others in the everyday and drive an open and inclusive culture. Each person should always feel welcomed and respected, without fear of competition.
