Getting Hired Here

  • "Callback process: The three interviewers discuss their views, fill in some forms and rank the candidate. If the candidate reaches a certain threshold of points, he/she gets an offer (min. of 2x "yes" and one neutral vote). The next day the Partner who did the last interview calls the candidate."
  • "Ideal candidate: Young, analytical, good fit to our culture (not arrogant or 'over-competitive'), strategic and entrepreneurial mindset."
  • "HR did an outstanding job planning, calling back and, eventually, onboarding. Effective and smooth."
