What does the recruitment process look like?

After applying we will be looking at your resume and cover letter. If we see a match, we will invite you for a video call to get to know each other. Are we still positive? We will schedule an online interview with the hiring team to get to know you better. If both sides would like to proceed we will schedule a chat with our COO and Director of Business Development & Business Intelligence as the last step in the interview process. We will schedule the online interviews as quickly, in order to let you know as fast as possible if you can start at HelloFresh!

At HelloFresh, we are committed to ensuring equal opportunities in hiring. As part of your job application, we will therefore ask you to play a couple of short, fun games. These games provide you with the opportunity to showcase your skills, talents and personality. As a result, we can ensure equal opportunities for everyone who applies, by evaluating everyone based on objective insights rather than gut feeling. And as we value personal growth and transparency, we will make sure you receive your results as well. After submitting the application form, you will automatically receive an invitation to complete the games.
