FAQ for applicants
What if I am not from Germany?
If you are a citizen from the EU, EEA or Switzerland, no problem! There is no extra paperwork necessary than the usual registration with the local registry office, which also german citizens have to do. You can directly send your application to us!
What if I dont speak German?
This is not an obstacle, but it makes things a bit more complicated. Non-german speakers will need very good English skills because this is the common language of our international team.
Is it a problem if I am not gay?
You would not be the first non-gay to join our company. We have no problem as long as you have no problem working in a gay environment with work centered on the gay online world.
What if I’m from outside the EU?
In this case it is not quite as easy, but still possible to work with us, if you take care of the necessary steps. Depending of your country of origin, this might involve residence and work permits. There is a german phone number of the Federal Employment Office to answer questions around this topic: +49 (0)228 713 2000 and also an information sheet to help you get the paperwork done.
How does the application process work?
Please write to us directly via the email address mentioned in the relevant job description. We will contact you back. For long distance applicants we usually do a first interview on Skype. The next step would be to invite you to Berlin for an in-person interview.
