How to Get Hired
We asked TCGplayer.com for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We seek out passionate employees, who aspire to “Go Beyond” and help us continuously innovate. To ensure we find the key characteristics in candidates, we use an inclusive multi-step interview process, with a diverse team of at least 3 interviewers. Our questions focus on determining the candidate's ability to collaborate with others, expertise and domain knowledge, and demonstrate alignment to our Core Values. “A Quest for Knowledge,” for example, means an applicant is inquisitive, curious, tinkering, and always learning. Aligning with the Core Values is the best indicator that somebody will fit within the company.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
During our selection process, prospective employees get our attention in two major ways. First, their application materials (cover letter, resume, video chat screening) demonstrate the candidate’s uniqueness and their individual and professional passions. Secondly, candidates demonstrate the many ways they align with our Core Values.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
As a technology company, we are always looking for developers, engineers, UI designers and business development professionals, who will help us continue building the world’s most powerful digital collectibles’ marketplace.
