Employment selection and related decisions are made without regard to sex, race, age, disability, religion, national origin, color or any other protected class.
The preferred method for applying for open positions is through the online application system, as this provides the most efficient way for applications to be processed.
Applicants using the online application system will receive a confirmation that your information was successfully submitted once you apply. You will also receive an e-mail notification when your application has been received. If an e-mail is not received, the application was not transmitted properly and should be resubmitted.
The time to fill a position can vary significantly, from several weeks to several months. Candidates who are interviewed for an open position will receive information on the expected timetable for filling the position.
Once your resume has been reviewed, MAYA will contact you with an answer. The usual next step is to arrange a telephone interview with a couple MAYA practitioners, lasting from 30 minutes to an hour.
After the call, MAYA may bring you into the office for a final round of interviewing. Expect to spend a half day at the MAYA office.
You will have a couple hour-long interviews with a range of practitioners from all 3 disciplines (Visual Design, Human Sciences, Engineering). You will also have an open portfolio review, in which you have 45 minutes to present your work. Again, there will be a mix of practioners in attendance. If scheduling allows, we like to take you out to lunch and provide a tour of the MAYA office.
MAYA’s office is conveniently located in downtown Pittsburgh. Directions to our new office in Four Gateway Center at 444 Liberty Avenue can be found here.
Consider the impression you want to make. MAYA is a comfortable atmosphere in terms of what to wear, but for interviewing, business casual is always a safe bet.
Several copies of your resume, a laptop for the portfolio review, video adaptor, any particular materials you would like to share, and questions you have about MAYA.
You will meet with 3-4 MAYA practitioners for an hour. No matter the discipline you are interviewing with, there will be a mix of practitioners from the other two groups included in the interviews. Depending on scheduling, you will have 2-3 of these interviews. The format is a discussion of your background and experiences, getting a sense of who you are, and answering any questions you have about MAYA.
Your portfolio review is 45 minutes of presentation, and 15 minutes of Q&A. When preparing this, consider the type of role you are passionate about, what projects show your process and how you problem-solve, and whatever it is you make. Whether it is a prototype of code, a game you designed, research findings, or visual concepts, we want to see your superpower!
We will explore several alternative options, such as Skype, Conference Call, etc.
Generally it will take 2 weeks to receive a response. Candidates who are interviewed for an open position will receive information on the expected timetable for a response while interviewing on-site.
