How to Apply


The Candidate application process takes about an hour and consists of a few steps:

  • Initial Registration here
  • Employment Application
  • Resume & LinkedIn Profile Submission
  • Assessment Testing

Assessment Testing

Launch Factory uses a series of assessment tests to better understand Candidate’s unique capabilities. These tests consist of a couple types of personality tests, an aptitude test, and a skills test.

The results of the tests are only one of many factors accounted for in the Recruiting Process, and simply help us gather a more complete view of each Candidate.

After Submission

After a Candidate’s application is complete the team at Launch Factory will review his or her application. This review process may take up to 2-3 weeks.

Once notified of acceptance into the Recruitment Process, the final step for each candidate is to secure a partner if they do not already have one.

Securing a Teammate

Some Candidates may apply with a partner in mind but in many cases it might be necessary for two individual candidates to partner up for the Recruitment Process.

Accepted Candidates will be directed to a private forum where they can find a teammate. Each Candidate will have a preference in role, but should remain flexible on this front until a partner is found.
