Interviewing at PagerDuty

Our mission is to keep the world always on. In this current reality, our commitment is stronger than ever. Our customers around the world are relying on us to help them adapt and continue to deliver exceptional digital experiences for their customers, respond faster, and save money on operational costs.

We care just as much about our future Dutonians, and folks interested in joining us on this journey can expect the same level of care during our interview and onboarding processes.

#BringYourself — Remote Interviews

We’re interviewing remotely. Our conversational approach to interviewing works well in this format. Some of our interviews require collaboration and whiteboarding with the team, so we have different tools and platforms to help you share your ideas.

You can expect more flexibility: These are trying times for everyone. We can schedule interviews with plenty of breaks built-in and will do our best to accommodate your life at home.

Tips for interviewing
Choose your spot wisely.

Make sure you have the interview someplace that’s distraction-free. This includes closing all unnecessary software on your computer, turning off notifications, and ensuring your machine is fully charged.

Be ready.

At least 10 minutes before the interview, ensure everything is in place—including you! Enter the meeting a few minutes early. This gives you a chance to check your equipment one last time and shows you're prompt and ready to go.

Wear what makes you comfortable.

We are pretty relaxed at PagerDuty but feel free to wear whatever makes you feel best!

Test your equipment.

Conduct a test run with your webcam or phone. We use Zoom video conferencing so if you have remote meetings and/or need to share your screen, it helps to be familiar beforehand.

Ask questions.

This is your chance to be vocal and really show your interest in the company and position.


And relax! This is an interview, but we don’t want this to be a stressful experience. Every interviewer in the room was once in your shoes.
