How we hire
We recruit continuously, so don’t wait – send us your application right away!
Initial screening - A first casual 30 minute conversation with our CTO about Humly’s short and long-term goals and how those might be related to your personal career goals. This is a good time to discuss deal breakers and concerns you might have upfront.
Assignment or reference case - We don’t want the technical interview phase to start from scratch, and we don’t believe in white board coding. This step ensures a more collaborative and engaging discussion in the next phase.
The tech chat - A 1-hour deep-dive into the craft of software development together with a couple of our team members. With the assignment or reference case as a backdrop we let you describe how you engage with problem solving. You can share your opinions about technical debt, project management, and favourite tech stacks. This is also an opportunity to learn more about what our team enjoys about working at Humly, and ask the hard questions.
The experience chat - A 1-hour talk with our CTO and one of our founders into your previous experiences and learnings. Share with us your successes and failures and all the permutations in between. The goal is to get to know how what you’ve done before has shaped your perspective about the who/what/why/where/when of what you want to do next.

We are on a mission to empower every eligible educator with total control in their hands.
Humly is a company made for teachers, by teachers. And that’s where our story begins.
In 2015 our founders, Kristoffer Persson and Gustav Bild-Tofftin, were university students supplementing their incomes as supply educators. Along the way, they realised the business of supply education was backward. It didn't value the most important part of it – educators.
And so they built a better way. They built a revolutionary digital marketplace that empowers educators with full-career control while also simplifying and improving how schools and nurseries connect with the best educators.
Today, Humly is the market leader in Sweden and a dynamic, growing force within the UK.
Tomorrow? Who knows.
We're still just getting started.
