    Macedon uses a three phased interview process.  During each of the phases, prospective employees will be reviewed on 25 specific areas.  These areas include, but are not limited to, Technical, Personality, Motivation, and Intelligence.  In order to progress from one phase to the next, the prospective employee must consistently score at an acceptable level or above for each area.   The final interview will be with our CEO.  During this interview, the CEO will focus on areas that scored lower in the prior interviews.  When possible, interviews are conducted in-person or via Skype.

    Macedon focuses on Computer Scientists or Computer Engineers from top engineering schools.  The majority of our candidates are directly out of school or may have one or two years of experience.
