Frequently Asked Questions
How does the application process work?
What is the best way to apply?
The best way to apply is through our career site. Please be aware that your application will be submitted for the relevant job posting. All newly received applications will be viewed by our recruiters as quickly as possible. In review, it is always considered whether your profile is also suitable for other positions within the company. Please note that for security and data protection reasons, we unfortunately cannot accept applications by postal/mail.
Are the job postings up-to-date?
Our job postings are updated daily. So you can be sure that all vacancies that you find on our career page are up to date.
Is there any possibility to send a general application? If so, how?
We are a constantly growing company with new challenges and tasks. For this reason, all job advertisements under the category “job offers” are updated daily. If you do not find yourself in any of these offers, but would still like to apply, please select one of the offers that most closely matches what you are looking for and apply directly via our job portal. If you follow the process, you have a direct line to our colleagues from specific departments. A reference to your speculative application in the cover letter would be nice. Please do not simply submit your application by email.
Is there a deadline to apply?
If you cannot find a fixed start date in the job posting, it is a position that will be filled as soon as possible.
Which documents are needed for my application?
In addition to your resume/CV, you will be asked to fill out a company application as you advance through the interview process. In other cases, some people may provide a cover letter, case study or samples of their work.
Can I send one application for several positions?
We would recommend limiting your application to one position and noting in your cover letter or online application that you are interested in other open positions. Please understand that our recruiters will check your application documents with all open positions in mind.
What types of benefits does umlaut offer to its employees?
From retirement planning and health care coverage to personal vacation days, our benefits are as colorful as our gradient. Provided benefit offerings may vary based on location and position. This information can be reviewed by the recruiter during the telephone interview.
How long does it takes to get feedback on my application?
We know waiting for a response can be stressful, but rest assured we are actively working on assessing every application. Once we have received your application, we will review your profile and contact you if your experience is a good match for the position. Unfortunately, we are unable to personally speak to everyone that applies, but please don't be discouraged if you don't hear from us right away.
What is the min./max. period of time for an internship at umlaut?
We offer both domestic and international internships and the duration can range from 3 months to 1 year. In addition, we try to invite recent interns to participate in future internships and other employment opportunities.
Will my travel costs be reimbursed? If so, how?
In cases where you need to travel to the interview from out-of-state, travel costs may be reimbursed. Your recruiter will work with you on details needed prior to travel.
How do I prepare for the interview & what should I expect?
Interviews will be a mixture of questions and discussions regarding your previous work experience and the challenges you've encountered. Come prepared with detailed examples. If you're being interviewed for a technical role, be prepared to discuss your knowledge in the tools or software’s you use. We genuinely want to understand what inspired you to explore an opportunity with us, so let us know who you are!
