Apply at AOE. We look forward to meeting you.

Our application process is relatively short. As soon as you have applied, we will look at your documents. Generally, you will receive a response within two weeks.

Our application process

The first step is always the most important: your initiative. If you are interested in working at AOE, we gladly welcome your application with your CV and references. If you have any questions before you apply, you're welcome to get in touch with us. We will be happy to answer your questions and support you as good as we can. Generally, our application process is as follows:

Once we’ve received your application documents, they are evaluated by our recruiting team. Usually, you will receive a response within two weeks. Sometimes it takes a little longer, for example, when internal coordination is required. If the first impression is positive, we will often make a first informal telephone call. This initial conversation serves to clarify basic questions and exchange essential information. It is very relaxed, without a predefined structure or the typical recruiting questions. So don't worry: We have a down-to-earth approach to recruiting – as to everything else.

Step 1: Personal meeting

If your application leaves a positive first impression, we will arrange a personal meeting with you - either via video call or at our office. At AOE, this meeting is more about becoming acquainted with each other rather than a traditional job interview. We focus on your qualifications and personality, not on looks or pre-learned answers to typical recruiting questions. We want to get to know you as you are, so you don’t have to show up in a business suit or fear any tricky questions.

Step 2: Code as work sample

After the first meeting, we will usually ask you for a work sample to verify your qualifications and to better understand your practical work approach. We will give you a programming exercise to solve. You can work on a solution to the exercise at home – with no stress and no exam atmosphere. If you are applying for a position as software tester, you will receive an appropriate task; for product owner positions, we often arrange a trial working day.

Step 3: Conversation
with the team

If everything works out, you will get to know some members of your future team in another meeting – after all, both sides are curious and want to make the right decision. As before, this conversation takes place in a relaxed atmosphere and dives a little deeper into specific questions about your future project. If the chemistry is right between you and the team, then working together is a mere formality.

Are we a match?
Our job offer to you

Hurray, you made it! If you are qualified and fit to AOE, we will make you an appropriate job offer. We offer a fair salary and many extras and benefits as well as numerous possibilities for training and personal growth. If you accept our offer: Welcome to the AOE family! Now, that wasn’t really that hard, was it?

Your start at AOE

We want you to make your start as easy as possible. A personal mentor will be assigned to you who will get in touch with you before your first day of work and will accompany your start at AOE. After setting up your workplace – your laptop will be waiting for you (complete with login data, e-mail, etc.) – you will be given a tour of the office, so that you can at least briefly meet all of your new colleagues, and they can get to know you a little bit. If you start remotely, you will still have the chance to see most of your new colleagues in our AOE weekly on mondays where you can also introduce yourself briefly to everyone. You will find all necessary information about your start at AOE on the corresponding wiki page in our extranet. If you have questions, your mentor will be happy to assist you – and all your other colleagues will help you settle in at AOE as quickly as possible, too. Finally, there is our HR team who are always available for further questions.

I can’t imagine better colleagues or a better working environment. Spoiler: Especially young professionals will consider the atmosphere here as standard, and can then only be disappointed after AOE."
