Depends, but could be long because they don't have designated HR people for recruiting roles. Could be fast because they people interviewing you are the ones making decisions. Either way, be patient and understanding with them and reach out often. People are usually taking on multiple roles there.

I'm interview for one as well. I agree be patient. So far my process has been 3 weeks long and only one interview. Was told on Monday definitely moving to the step in the process but won't know details until Friday 😩😔

Are you looking business or engineering roles? My wife has been looking for business roles and the biggest hurdle seems to be finding the right position - a lot needs to line up: funding, growth, need at the right level, solid management team, etc.

Business roles which are definitely tough to find.

Just interviewed for this job that sounds superficially good but I think will take me back to the work I did 10 years ago but will pay my target salary and will have a fancy title (VP). I don't really want to do this but I need a job, have run out of UI and don't want to deplete my savings to nothing waiting for the perfect job. If offered, should I take it and continue looking or will it look bad? Changed jobs within 1 year once already. At least this job would be spinnable for what I want.
