Our application process

After you click the “Apply” button, you will be asked a few questions regarding your motivation for joining our team, areas of interest, and sponsorship (VISA) requirements (if any). We ask that you upload your resume and preferably a cover letter. 

We will review your application and if we see a potential match, you will be invited for a first online interview with one of our HR professionals. We respond to each application within one working week to discuss next steps. 

Following a successful first interview, a follow-up interview will take place at our office in Amsterdam with your future line manager, and future colleague(s), combined with a tour of our office. As part of the application process, you may be asked to complete a case study or assignment in relation to your role.
