Our Hiring Process

Our process has been designed to be a thoughtful and intentional opportunity for both the candidate and hiring team to get to know each other. These steps represent a typical process, but your experience may vary slightly depending on the role to which you apply.

We review your application materials to see if there is a match between your skill set and what’s required for the role. If there’s alignment, you will be invited to a phone interview so that we can get to know you and you can deepen your understanding of the position.

A subset of candidates will be invited to complete hiring exercise(s). Our hiring exercises are designed to both help us learn more about how you would approach our work and to give you a realistic window into what is required in this role. In some cases, you’ll be asked to submit a work sample instead of or in addition to the hiring exercise.

Candidates with impressive hiring exercise submissions will be invited to an initial panel interview with a cross-section of Flamboyan team members. A select few are then invited to a finalist panel interview with senior organization leaders. These interviews are typically in person at our office in DC or Puerto Rico.

To help us better understand your work experience – and before extending an offer – we will request and contact 3-5 professional references. We may conduct informal references at any point in the process. However, we will never contact your current employer without permission.

Our Commitment to Equity

Flamboyan Foundation values equity and is committed to be an inclusive organization that challenges historical inequity, with a focus on dismantling systemic inequities. We believe high-performing teams include people from different backgrounds and experience who can challenge assumptions, share fresh perspectives, and count on each other to push and explore unfamiliar, and sometimes uncomfortable, perspectives on race and equity. We aspire for our team to include those from historically marginalized groups — women, people with disabilities, people of color, formerly incarcerated people, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or gender nonconforming, first- and second-generation immigrants, and people from low-income families.
