How We Hire
To help you get the most from your hiring process we have outlined how this usually works, along with some helpful tips and FAQs below.
The Interview Process
We want to hire people who are good at what they do, who can demonstrate our leadership behaviours, and who share our inclusive values. At the same time, we want you to feel like OLX is the place for you and we encourage you to think of the hiring process as a two-way interview.
Every role and every candidate is unique, and so each process will look slightly different.
Our typical interview process will include the following steps:
You will find all our opportunities under “Open Roles” and can apply via our careers site. Unfortunately, we are unable to process applications made outside of our careers site
Your first interview will be with one of our recruiters, who will talk to you about the role, your experience and your ambitions. This is your chance to ask any questions about the role and request any accommodations you may need
The next interview will be with the people or hiring manager for the role. The purpose of the interview will be assess your technical and soft skills. It’s also another chance to learn more about OLX and the team you might join.
At this stage, for some roles there may be additional interviews or a technical task to help us assess your skill level. Your recruiter will provide more detail about this if it is the case
Feedback and Offer

Don’t be disheartened! Keep checking back regularly as open positions are updated daily. You may also want to follow us on LinkedIn to see open roles and updates about the business.
Our Talent Acquisition team will carefully review your application and see if you’re a good fit for the position, and for us. If so, we’ll reach out to learn more about:
- you and your skills,
- what you’re looking for,
- and why OLX Group caught your interest!
If we feel we’re not a good fit for you, you can expect our feedback within the next one to two weeks. Sometimes it can take a bit longer, but you can be assured that we will get back to you no matter what. You will also receive a survey so can feedback to use about what you did or did not enjoy about the process.
This will depend on the role, but you can expect to meet variety of members of the OLX team, including a recruiter and a coordinator, plus other stakeholders such as your potential manager, or, for technical roles, other team members who will work with you.
While we have no official dress code at OLX, we recommend dressing in business casual clothing to your interview, if possible. If you are unsure or have any concerns about what to wear, feel free to speak to your recruiter.
With your consent, we will store and process the Application Data to maintain our talent pool and to contact you in the future with job offers for a period of 12 months after you have completed the application process. If you do not grant us your consent for a longer retention period, we will store your Application Data for a period of 6 months after you have completed the application process. You can find more information on our Privacy Statement.
You will be contacted by one of our Candidate Experience Coordinators or a Recruiter; via email or phone. They will inform you about the next steps in the process.
The aim of your first interview will be to get to know more about you and learn about your motivation and expectations for this role. Your interviewer will also share some more insights on the company, the team and the role you’re applying for.
In most cases, our interviews last between thirty and ninety minutes, depending on the stage and the role. But don’t worry, you’ll always be informed by our Coordinator or Recruiter about the length of your interview.
If you need to reschedule or cancel a job interview please contact a Coordinator or Recruiter that you were in touch with so far.
At OLX, we want to create the best environment for everyone to do their greatest work; whether that is in a home office, or in your local OLX office. We know the ideal set-up is different for everyone and every role has a different set of needs, so we have created our three types of hybrid working: home first, office first and on-site. Check our job descriptions or speak to your recruiter to learn about the options for your role.
Yes, we are here to help!
- Test out the interview platform in advance (the link is already active) and check your device (sound, video, remember to charge your device or plug the charger in before the meeting).
- Use the best Internet connection you can access.
- Eliminate Distractions – silence your phone, turn off all notifications on your device, close all other windows or programs.
- Find the best place you can – ideally, a quiet room with a neutral background (for example a blank wall)

And, remember: sometimes technical difficulties happen so stay calm and carry on. If a problem occurs, simply inform your interviewer or recruitment coordinator and we will do our best to accommodate this.
