    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mollie (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in May 2020.

    Started with a telephone interview with the recruiter. After that, I had an interview with the hiring manager. Never heard from them again. No feedback, no answer to emails, no phonecalls... Such a mess.

    Commercial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Mollie (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    The recruiter had great energy, the 1st round phone screening process lasted for 25 minutes. Unfortunately, as there was a high volume of applications. I was not selected to continue to the next round of the interview due to my big corporate prior experience although suitably qualified for the role.

    They have a strong preference for individuals from a startup background or no experience.

    Definitely seeking to reapply for future roles!

    Technical Partner Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Amsterdam (Netherlands)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Mollie (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    I was positively amazed by the speed and openness of the whole application procedure. For me, the career page was already a good start to get to know the company, the team, and the core values of Mollie. The pictures and stories there are no exceptions: it's day to day business.
    Regarding the process:
    I was first invited for an informal cup of coffee, which gave a lot of freedom to ask about the roles, opportunities, and the company, in a very relaxed way.
    After this, a 'real interview' was planned. The approach was focused on when >I< was available, which made it very convenient (not like: be here at this date, this time). The mollie team adjusted their planning to mine: very cool. This second talk was more in depth on the role, but also gave me some time to prepare so was good for both sides to get to know each other a bit more.
    The third, and last round consisted of a case presentation, which I received before to prepare. Then a Q&A with the team, and lastly a sitdown with one person of the management team.
    The combination of these 3 elements gave me again a good feeling of the team, product and company. My questions were also answered honestly, and provided a solid basis for my choice.
    The personal connection and the opportunities that lie ahead made me choose for mollie without a doubt.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mollie (Amsterdam (Netherlands)).

    Interview

    I knew Mollie from an integration that I had to implement in a previous job. It was really simple for small/medium companies to start accepting payments, so I thought that could have smart people behind.
    I applied online through jobs page, couple of days later, a recruiter add me on LinkedIn and start the process. We did a phone call to know my motivations and then we schedule an interview onsite with 1 Lead Dev and Product Engineer. This first interview was more technical, to understand my background, but also to explain what Mollie is about and plans for the future. After that interview, they sent me an assignment to do at home. I finished in a weekend and they already scheduled the last step to talk with Head of Engineer and a Senior Developer to discuss the assignment, what could I change etc... A week later, got a job offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mollie (Amsterdam (Netherlands)).

    Interview

    I applied via a recruiter and I interviewed at Mollie in their office in Amsterdam. The process took around 3 weeks.

    - 1st Onsite Interview: The first onsite interview was with the team lead and a team-member.
    They went through my experience and asked me to go in a bit more detail what I did, the problems I faced, and how I solved them. They also asked more technical questions, but it felt more like a normal conversation than an interview.

    - 2nd Onsite Interview: a senior engineer and the CTO. They explained a bit of the evolution of the infrastructure at mollie, and some reasoning behind their choices. They also asked some technical questions and some personal ones, but it felt more like a casual conversation as well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mollie (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    I applied one times to have a call with their recruitment and he did not give me any feedback. After I asked he said he was in holiday but the company got investment that why they stopped to look for a senior developer.
    Another time, they opened a new position for backend and I applied again, I got a call invite but I asked some questions about their process but i did not get any response then they sent to me another email about I was not matching for the role :) I think their recruiter has some confusing and not working carefully.

    Marketing Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Amsterdam (Netherlands)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mollie (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    After applying online for the job I got an email from the recruiter to arrange a first phone call. The phone call was the first nice surprise for me, because it was a very friendly and open talk and I felt I could be myself. I was invited to an interview in person the next day after. Finding the place was easy and I received a warm welcome. I had the interview with the Marketing Manager and one other Designer. The role was just being born and we talked about what it would involve and how I could make the most of it based on my experience. The talk took about an hour and it felt really honest. Casual, but professional. Had a nice follow-up chat with the recruiter after and when I walked out I knew I wanted to get the job. After almost 2 weeks I received an update and was invited to take a test. Had a few days for this and then I got the magic call :) Overall a very pleasant experience, their friendly, relaxed attitude and honesty really made a big difference.
