The application process

While the process may differ slightly for different roles or teams, the same basics apply. Here you can find a general overview of the application process.

Apply & Invitation

Start your application process by sending in your CV, motivation letter (or video), and grade list. We will review your application documents and if we believe that you are a match you will be invited to enter the hiring process.
