Who Brex Is Currently Hiring For?
Some of the most in demand positions at Brex include data scientists and engineers, customer experience, brand and product design, engineering, finance, marketing, and sales.
Some interviews are done at Brex offices (depending on where a job candidate is located), but most are done virtually. Some positions require a take-home assignment as part of the screening process. The actual job interview is typically an informal interview with multiple members of the Brex team.
"The interviews are set up for your success and very relevant to what you will do on the job. This for me means that the company is very thoughtful about their hiring process," one candidate wrote on job review website Glassdoor.com
Why Would You Want To Work For Brex?
Like many companies, Brex transitioned to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic. After receiving mostly positive feedback from employees about remote work, the company decided to shift its focus to being remote-first and began the effort to build the best remote workforce possible.
To that end, every employee receives a $1,000 USD (1,350 CAD) stipend to use toward setting up their home office, and a $200 USD (275 CAD) monthly stipend on their Brex card to spend on anything that enhances their remote work experience.
Brex has also put a major focus on having a diverse and inclusive workforce. The company conducts quarterly pulse surveys to measure the engagement, satisfaction, and overall feedback from employees. These results are shared across the company in an effort to drive transparency and accountability. Brex also supports ten employee resource groups designed to build a safe and open place for employees to find support, share differing experiences, and bring awareness.
Brex has a 4.3/5 on Glassdoor.com, and was recognized as one of Fast Company's 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators in 2020 and was featured as one of the Linkedin Top 5 Startups in 2019!
Other popular benefits and perks at Brex include:
