Advice to Management
There are two locations, one in The Hague and one in Amsterdam. Make sure those two locations always will feel like one company.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at albelli (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in December-2018.
After applying online to the position, I received a call from the recruiter to set up an initial conversation. The first interview with HR was to understand my experience and expectations and to present an overview of the company.
Then I received a technical assignment to build a REST API following some requirements. The test demanded around 4 to 6 hours, but there are no time constraints for it.
Next phase was a technical interview with the team members who reviewed the tech assignment, there were questions related to the test and technical questions in general, including topics like performance, application's monitoring, LINQ (.NET) and so on.
Then I had a non-technical interview with the team manager and the recruiter, they wanted to know what I value in a job and about my soft skills. They also presented more details about the company.
Finally, they invited me to visit the company in Amsterdam and I had a face to face interview including pair programming and meetings with the teams. Next day they invited me to the office and presented me an offer.
The whole process was smooth and well communicated, and I was very well welcomed by the team during the in-person interview.
Yesterday, albellians participated in the Make-A-Wish Business Challenge. We worked together in teams to fulfill wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses, and to not only give them an unforgettable day, but to also give them the strength and belief to get better.

Last Wednesday, albelli played host to the 2nd UX meet-up of 2018, organised by the "Amsterdam UX" community. This time, the topic was "Innovation and boundaries: UX and the spaces in-between".
Kevin Richardson, delivered a compelling speech about the responsibility of UX professionals to give users what they need, not just what they want.
