You may apply for multiple positions: just indicate this and answer their respective interview questions.
## First-round Interview! ##
You're already in first-round. Let's not waste time.
* Tell us about yourself
* What is your stack? Please tell us all that you're comfortable working with, if given at most 1 week to re-familiarize yourself with it.
* Among these, which are you most comfortable with? If you're not sure, imagine that you get to pick the stack at a new project, what would you choose?
* Send us your own code samples that showcases your abilities in your chosen stack. You could send code snippets, or point us to repositories. If you have none, make a todo app. For features roughly reference TodoMVC ([url removed, login to view]), but specs are up to you. We're not looking for a complete, perfect application, but bits of code that show the best of you.
* State your availability, current and expected remuneration. It's okay to give in (hours/week) and (salary/hour) respectively if you're not looking for full-time engagement. Any notice period?
* Anything else you'd like to let us know? Or anything to convince us that you're *the* Backend Knight?
* Any question for us?
If you pass this round, next (and final) round would be an interview on Skype, Google Hangout, or Fuze. Please make sure your hardware is ready for this - you'll need this for working at CogLab anyway.
Good luck! - and join us soon!
