You can explain what policy you implemented, what was the goal or the outcome of that policy, and how did you reach or exceed those goals and outcomes.

One is alignment with the company’s core values, and two is evidence of the skills necessary to do the job that you're applying for. At Zapier, they have a unique application process where you are not required to upload a traditional resume. However, they do have a list of questions that they ask you to answer. They put less weight on prior experience or prior job titles, versus the experience that you're bringing to the table.
