How to Get Hired
We asked Twisthink 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?
At Twisthink we are a team-oriented company where everyone must thrive in a culture based on collaboration, creativity and innovation. When looking for individuals that would be a great fit for our company we follow Patrick Lencioni's guidelines for "the ideal team player" which evaluates candidates based on 3 categories: humble, hungry and smart. We use these characteristics because they align well with our 5 values: creativity, agility, growth, hospitality and team. We look for people who are humble that promote the team over themselves and define success collectively rather than individually. As a small company, we also need people who are hungry and self-motivated. These types of people make great additions to our team because of their agility and their drive that helps us grow and be creative. Lastly, smart team members have good judgement and intuition around group dynamics, customer relationships, and how best to engage with people.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
At Twisthink, we are always open to networking and bringing individuals into our space. Prospective employees can get our attention by applying to job openings as they arise, contacting us on LinkedIn, email, or even giving us a call. Applying with a tailored cover letter to explain why they think they would be a great fit for Twisthink, helps grab our attention even more. Still in school? We host numerous events at local universities in West Michigan where candidates can get to know Twisthink and meet some teammates.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Our team is actively growing and planning to add 3-6 new members to our team this year. Right now, we are heavily recruiting for Embedded Software Engineers and a Senior Industrial Designer. The types of candidates we are looking for are people who have a desire to grow as a leader, be a team player, have an entrepreneur mentality and have the ability to equally serve our clients and our team.
