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.

COVID-19: We have collected candidate information regarding the current situation here.

In the first stages of your application, you can reach out to us here: recruiting@staffbase.com

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 bootcamp 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.


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. Show us who you are, maybe with a quirky habit, a hobby or a story.


Share when you've failed and learned. We stick to our values and “When you grow, we grow” is not just a saying-it’s our everyday motto. Hence, we’re not afraid of making mistakes and you shouldn’t hesitate to talk about the blunders you’ve made in the past.

If you haven’t heard from us in two months about an application, we likely proceeded with other candidates for that particular role. However, our recruiters might reach out if we find a different potential match for your skills, interests, and experience.


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!
