Working in Corona times: Your questions, our answers

Application FAQs

As part of the first lockdown, we switched to a virtual application process at EOS. In this regard, we work with MS Teams.

You do not have to download the MS Teams software to participate. We will send you an access link for each interview in advance. You can use this link to participate either via your cell phone or via your computer/laptop with camera. If you have any questions, please contact your recruiter. 

We have a culture of using the informal "Du" form at EOS, so we decided to carry this over to communications with our applicants. This means that you’re welcome to use the informal "Du" in your cover letter or in conversations with us.

But if you feel more comfortable with the formal "Sie", that’s no problem either. Some managers at EOS feel the same way, since the formal "Sie" is still viewed as a form of courtesy in Germany.  

For us, it doesn’t matter whether we switch to "Du" already in the application process or wait for the Welcome Days to make it a special occasion – it’s up to you. 

In each job advertisement, you’ll find an “apply now” button that will take you directly to our application form. You should fill out this form completely. Any required fields are marked with an asterisk (*). You can upload your attachments directly in the form. Once we receive your application, the system will send you an automatic confirmation message.

If you experience any problems, please let us know. You can contact us either at recruiting[at] or by telephone at +49 89 89336 2931. 

We ask that applicants do not submit applications by e-mail due to our data protection guidelines. In the interest of environmentally friendly paper avoidance and effective processing, we ask that you refrain from sending application folders by mail. 

We want a complete picture of you. But for a first impression, your resume and a letter of motivation will be enough. Your letter of motivation should address the following points:

  • What inspires you about EOS?
  • Why is your profile exactly right for the position? 
  • What do you bring to the table?
  • Your salary expectations
  • Your earliest possible starting date

You’re also welcome to attach any past job references or additional qualifications if you have them at hand. If we need them, we’ll ask you for them specifically later.

You’ll find the contact person for each position directly in the job advertisement. If you aren’t able to reach them, you’re welcome to contact recruiting[at] or our recruiting coordinator at +49 89 89336 2931. They’ll forward your inquiry to the right people internally. 

Our telephone interviews typically last for 30 minutes and are conducted by the recruiter for your position. They focus on a discussion about the job position and its requirements and expectations.

At least as long as it takes to answer all your questions. 

We usually plan for about 1.5 hours, and occasionally 2 hours. Job interviews with students typically last for around 1 hour.

After some brief introductions, we’ll go into more detail about your resume and your motivation for the position. We’ll talk some more about what the job involves and answer any remaining questions. There is also a technical section where we’ll test your technical knowledge more closely. After that, there’ll be plenty of time for your own questions and more information about the benefits and working atmosphere at EOS. 

We prefer direct applications for vacancies because they correspond to specific needs and we can give a prompt response.

Please use our travel expenses form to submit your travel expenses. Fill out the form and send it directly to our recruiting coordinator (recruiting[at] We’ll process your application as quickly as possible.
