HOW WE HIRE

APPLYING TO MM

See an open position that fits your experience and passion? Amazing! As you apply, keep in mind that we really want to know what motivates you and how you think from others. We’re looking for action oriented people who are mission driven. Be sure to let us know how you approach projects, work with others, and communicate. In short, help us understand how your expertise can make an impact at MM.

Once you submit your application, someone from our recruiting team will review it and reach out to you directly if they’d like to schedule an interview. We will store applicant data for a period of 3 months and will not share it with anyone outside our organisation without your explicit consent. If we have not contacted you within 3 months (an estimate of the time period that it is likely to take to fill the advertised role) we will delete your data.

ROUND 3: SPEND THE DAY WITH US

We will invite you to spend a day at MM where you get to the see the ins & outs, speak to future teaMMates, and have a few conversations with change makers in the company. This day is tailored to each candidate, but activities may include sitting in with a project team, participating in a brainstorm, or presenting a completed exercise.

SETTING YOU UP FOR SUCCESS

Everyone at MM was once a new teaMMate. So don’t worry, we always make a concerted effort to guide new teaMMates through their first few weeks. These early days include informal meetings and lunches with people from all over the company to build one-on-one relationships and help you get on your feet.

Additionally, we have a comprehensive virtual onboarding  session that you can take prior to your start day to make sure you are up to speed on all things MM.
