We are committed to mitigating bias in our hiring processes, which you can learn more about later in this position description.

How We Intend to Mitigate Bias in the Hiring Process

To demonstrate our commitment to antibias hiring practices, we like to tell candidates upfront that the application process for jobs at ANCOR is a bit different from what you may be used to. While some software-based submission processes may not align with our in-house process, we believe the steps below will ensure that your application receives a non-biased initial review from our hiring manager.

  • All email submissions will arrive in an inbox that is not accessible to the hiring manager.
  • An independent person will blackout details including name, street address, and name of any educational institutions before handing the résumé to the hiring manager.
  • Interviews will not be conducted until the “for best consideration” application deadline has passed.
  • Additional applications may be reviewed if submitted after this date, assuming an offer has not already been accepted by a candidate for the position.  
  • Semifinalist candidates will receive an assessment that will demonstrate your technical skill. 
  • Final candidates will be asked to participate in both a face-to-face and virtual interview.

How to Apply

To be considered for this opportunity, tell us why you’re excited about the position, including your résumé, and unofficial transcripts if applying as an active student. Submit requested materials through your institution’s job portal or via an e-mail to techsupport@ancor.org.
