Our success depends on our people
Work at ISA
At ISA, we will give you access to complex problems and the freedom to solve them to make this world a safer and more secure place. If you want that kind of responsibility, then we want to work with you. Here are some resources to help you find your way.
Our interview process
We build our interview process around our candidates. The number and format of the interviews you will take will be personalized according to your skills and the type of position you are looking for. We want to give everyone the best chance to represent their abilities. Everyone starts with one or two phone interviews, and if we think there's an adjustment, we'll bring you there for a series of in-person interviews.
If you are invited to meet us:
Be yourself! We are looking for uniquely talented individuals who are bright, adaptable, and eager to be part of a tight-knit team. Our culture is important to us, so we’re careful to make sure that the fit is right on both sides. We want to learn about who you really are. We promise if you bring your real self, we’ll do the same.
Think about your biggest professional or academic accomplishments. We’ll be asking you questions about how you’ve executed, challenged yourself, motivated others, and made judgments—as well as where you've failed in the past.
Tell us what you’re passionate about. We want to know what motivates the people we meet. There’s no wrong answer here; we just want to see you get fired up about something you love.
Do not be afraid to ask clarifying questions. When presented with analytical and technical problems, talk through how you plan to approach the problem and ask questions if necessary. ISA operates in close-knit, collaborative teams, so don’t be afraid to engage with your interviewer.
