Of course, we always keep our website updated to ensure that all jobs shown still need to be filled.

If you have found your dream job, just click on “Apply now” and get connected to our online application system. There you can upload all the relevant documents: your CV, your cover letter, your references, and your certificates. It is a very fast & easy way to apply online. So keep in mind: You are just a few clicks away from starting your exciting & ambitious career at Stylight! At Stylight everybody can find a position, which corresponds to his or her working experience & educational background: from working student positions over internships to permanent ones for juniors and seniors – we got it all!
Step 2: Confirmation Mail
When you have completed all steps of the online application you will receive a confirmation mail. At this point it is our turn – so just lean back and relax for a few days until you hear back from us!
Step 3: Screening
What is next? Our recruiters and hiring managers will look through your application to find out if your skills and experiences match the profile of the position. Usually, we will get back to you in two to three weeks. If we, unfortunately, can not consider your application any further, we will let you know as soon as possible. At times, if there is, for example, a high number of applications the process might take a little bit longer – but do not worry, we will always keep you up-to-date. In this step of the recruiting process, the methods used in our departments may differ – there could be a Pre-Interview or some hands-on tasks:
- Pre-Interview: it will be conducted by one of our recruiters, will take 15-20 minutes and is usually done via Skype, telephone or Google Hangouts. The main goal is to get to know the most important things about you as a person, your background & your experiences. We are eager to get more insights into the things you love and those which thrill & motivate you. At the same time, it is also a great opportunity for you to get to know us – you are welcome to ask everything you have always wanted to know!
- Tasks: some of our departments send out tasks to applicants. By solving them creatively you get a first hands-on impression of your upcoming responsibilities at Stylight.
Step 4: Main-Interview
The next mandatory step in our HR recruitment process will be a Main-Interview with the Hiring Manager and usually one other team member. Depending on where you are located, we will either have an interview via Skype or invite you to come to our office – to make sure that it is easy for both of us. Feel free to have a look around and get a first impression of our Stylight office and our creative minds. The interview will take about 60 minutes and as we are humans as well and know that you might be nervous it is all about getting to know you with all your passions, strengths & little weaknesses. Of course, we will try to find out if you fit the Stylight team. Depending on the position you are applying for we will additionally ask you to solve hands-on tasks, case studies or scenario questions.
Step 5: Management-Interview
If you proceed to the next round, there will be a Management-Interview. This means that one of our Managing Directors also wants to get to know you.
As one of our outstanding candidates who makes it to the last round, we really want to ensure that this position is the perfect one for you and that you will feel comfortable in your team. In order to have a closer look at these aspects we have the following options:
- Team Meet: join us for a cup of coffee or have a delicious lunch with us to meet your new team members in a casual & personal way.
- Reference Check: we will contact one of your references to get a better overview of all the things you have done in your previous job.
- Probational Day: you will work in the department for one day to get an insight into your future job and your colleagues.
