FAQ

Queries may arise during your application. Please find responses to the most frequently asked questions:

HOW DO I APPLY?

We prefer applications via our website – whether pro-actively or in direct response to an advertised position. This enables timely and structured processing. The link for the online application can be found in each published job advertisement or use our APPLY DIRECTLY button. You also can send us your application via e-mail to hamburg@alten-technology.com.

If you have any specific questions in advance that aren’t clarified in this FAQ, of course you can always get in touch with us personally.

WHAT POSITIONS ARE CURRENTLY OPEN?

All of ALTEN Technology´s current vacancies can be seen here.

CAN I SEND AN UNSOLICITED APPLICATION?

Unsolicited applications are very welcome. You can send your application documents to us here.

WHAT DOCUMENTS SHOULD I INCLUDE WITH MY APPLICATION?

Please include a cover letter with details of the positions you are interested in, your availability, mobility with regards to location, as well as your salary expectations. Please also include a CV in German and English with details of your previous work experience and education. We would also appreciate any references and all relevant certificates.

IS MY APPLICATION ONLY CONSIDERED FOR THE POSITION I APPLY FOR? DO I NEED TO APPLY AGAIN FOR OTHER POSITIONS?

When you apply, you indicate a preference regarding a position. Each incoming application is always checked for a match against all current vacancies. So you can apply for several positions at the same time and thus indicate several preferences. If your documents are already available due to an application, you don’t need to enclose your documents again when you make additional applications at the same time, as your application profile will already be included in our system.

WHAT DOES THE ALTEN TECHNOLOGY APPLICATION PROCESS LOOKS LIKE IN DETAIL?

You apply for the position you want directly on our website or via email. Or you send us your unsolicited application. Once the application has been received, your documents are examined by the relevant departments and you receive a response as soon as possible.

If the examination is successful, we contact you to arrange an initial interview. During this initial interview, we introduce our company, discuss the individual stages of your career and validated your suitability for specific positions. You will receive our feedback on the first interview within 3 weeks. If your competences match with our expectations, we discuss the position with you and invite you to another interview in our offices to get to know you better. If it seems there isn’t an immediate match based on the first interview, the application process doesn’t necessarily end. There could very well be a further series of telephone interviews to verify a match with other positions.

During a personal interview in our offices we provide you with more information and let you know our first impressions. This is immediately followed by a personal meeting with the responsible department leader.

Once everything in this two or three-stage process has been completed successfully, we make you an offer.
