What do I need to know about VTEX’s recruitment process?

For those who dream of working with technology and digital business, knowing VTEX’s recruitment process can help achieve this goal. The first tip applies not only to our recruitment process but to any job you are considering applying for: understand the company’s culture. To learn more about VTEX, you can access our careers page, where you will find information about who we are, the pillars of our culture, internship programs, and, of course, all our open positions.


In our social networks, such as Linkedin, Youtube, and our blog – written in collaboration with several members of VTEX teams – you can also find different contents, from products we are developing to challenges we are experiencing to some of our recent announcements. The press is also a great source of information about the company and our industry. Being attuned to the world of digital commerce would certainly be seen through a positive lens by recruiters.

Know what they say about us!

VTEX is evaluated at Glassdoor, whose purpose is to show the health of companies through evaluations based on their culture, workplace routine, remuneration, etc. There you can access a reputation ranking, which contains evaluations and comments from employees, former employees, and leaders. Seeking inspiration from people who have worked at the company can help you connect with us.

VTEX has almost 200 reviews and is among the best-rated technology companies on the Glassdoor platform, with a score of 4.7. In addition, 93% of those who left reviews would also recommend the company to a friend.

Get ready for an amazing chat!

Once our meeting is scheduled – whether in-person or via video conferencing – get ready for it. In addition to testing your internet connection, audio and camera in advance, check out your interviewer’s profile on Linkedin, write down your main questions, and let us know if you need to reschedule the interview due to unforeseen circumstances.

During our chat, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible. The interview is a conversation to get to know you better, so this is the time to ask everything you want to know about us. The interviewer will probably ask about your background, hard and soft skills, successful projects, projects that went wrong, and why you want to be part of the VTEX team. Keep practical examples in mind so you don’t forget anything important and prepare what you are going to say. You recommend using the STAR methodology, which proposes to summarize projects in Situation, Task, Action, and Result. This tool can help you organize your thoughts and be more fluent when sharing your experiences.

Remember: we want to get to know you, and that involves not only your technical or professional knowledge, but your way of communicating and expressing your ideas, and what you dream and desire for your career. For us, it is important to know which projects you have been involved with, but mainly what challenges you faced, since your story goes beyond your professional achievements. This can be a very constructive exchange and contribute to your performance during the recruitment process.

Go beyond the obvious and be confident!

Going beyond the obvious can also help you get the position. It includes telling the interviewers what you consider relevant about yourself or your career, without necessarily waiting for them to ask about it. Making associations with a book or an article you read, or with a podcast you heard can also contribute to your performance during the interview. If you don’t know how to answer something, ask for guidance on the topic to search about it later. It will show that you recognize your weaknesses, but that you are willing to learn.

Explorer’s mind!

At VTEX, every day we drive the company’s culture and mission in a unified and global way for all parties involved. Here we are transformers, diversified, we value integrity and exercise our potential in a free and creative way. So remember: if you have the mind of an explorer, you dream of collaborating in a high-performance team with global challenges, generating exceptional results and impact, this is certainly your place.

Finally, don’t underestimate yourself! The recruitment team wants to get to know you and we are sure that you have a lot of cool things to say, so make the most of this moment to get to know us and connect with us! 🙂
Now that you know everything about our recruitment process, how about taking a look at our open positions? Come and explore our opportunities! https://careers.vtex.com/
