You have the questions, we have the answers. Below, you find our most frequently asked questions. If you still cannot find the answer, feel free to contact us.
The process usually looks something like this.
- First, you’ll have an initial call with one of our recruiters – a chat about you, the role, and your background. If all goes well, you enter the next stage.
- The second interview is with one or two members of your future team (likely the team leader). Here you can expect more in-depth questions and also get the chance to learn about the team structures and your responsibilities. This is also the time to ask all your questions. Once this step is completed successfully, we’ll move on to the next round.
- For positions in the DACH area and Europe, we’re inviting all candidates to spend a shOWN-time meeting, either on-site or remote. This is our unique approach to a meeting that highlights our core value of ownership. You’ll get some role-specific tasks for the day and you’ll meet multiple colleagues across the business. This allows you to get a good feeling for things at Staffbase. Prior to this, we send you a non-binding pre-offer letter.
- We’re almost ready to go. After a successful shOWN-time meeting, we will send you the final offer. Once you accept and sign the contract, you’re part of the crew.
- Welcome to the team!
In the first stages of your application, you can reach out to us here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Important: We only answer emails regarding the recruiting process and related topics. Agency requests, spam and mass mailing will be deleted.
In general, we prefer email contact as it ensures smooth communication. If there are urgent matters to discuss, we might call you.
Preferably English as we are an international company. If the job description is in German, you can also apply in German.
Job applications are not limited. However, be sure to apply for roles that strongly match your specific skills and work experience.
Interviews vary across roles and regions. Be prepared to answer questions about your CV and make yourself familiar with Staffbase.
No worries! Staffbase is committed to providing reasonable accommodation during the shOWN-time process. However, terms may vary between the different regions. Please reach out to your recruiter for further assistance.
Focus on your strengths. We like to ask what you’re good at, rather than focusing on weaknesses.
Come prepared, ask us questions, and be sincere. Tell us something that’s not included in your CV. We’re no big fans of set phrases, but interested in people and their experiences.
Share when you’ve failed and learned. One of our values is “growth” and failure is an important part of that process. Hence, we’re not afraid of making mistakes and you shouldn’t hesitate to talk about the blunders you’ve made in the past.
Our job applications are up-to-date and include application deadlines if existing. For most openings, we accept applications on a rolling basis.
If you’re applying for a role where work samples come in handy, we’d be thrilled to see what you’ve been up to currently. Work samples tell us more about your skills and unique style.
A cover letter is not mandatory and not submitting one will not impact your chances to get invited to an interview.
However, we’d love to learn more about your motivation, interests, strengths, or whatever else you want to tell us. A cover letter gives us the opportunity to learn about your personality beforehand and will help us to have more meaningful interview conversations.
So long story short: we love cover letters!
