Flexible working hours / No core working time

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

Full-time for us means 40 hours per week, but we are also open to part-time – please feel free to ask during the application process. We have flexible working hours with flextime arrangements, so if you work more hours because of a project, for example, you can use the credit on your time account to take other days off. Also, travel time counts as working time.

Mobile working

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

We basically have no restriction for remote work. But because we believe it’s good to meet in person from time to time, we don’t agree on a 100% rate. Many colleagues work mobile two days a week, for example. Feel free to ask directly during the interview what the arrangement is for your role.

Electric pool vehicles

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

Depending on your role you will be on the road for pepper more or less often. For trips to other pepper locations, to customers, workshop partners, suppliers, or trade fairs etc. you can easily book a company pool car. We have electric cars and hydrogen-powered vehicles in our fleet.

Free coffee, fruit, cookies, candy

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

All of our locations have well-equipped kitchens that offer you the opportunity to prepare food during the working day, warm up meals, and exchange ideas with your colleagues. Coffee and tea as well as fruit, cookies, and sweets are provided free of charge.

Flat hierarchies

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

Even though we’ve grown quite a bit over the years, we haven’t lost our relaxed attitude from the early days. In concrete terms, this means that we are all on first name terms, have short communication channels, flat hierarchies, and super helpful colleagues.

Occupational pension allowance

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

The topic of company pension plans is also an important concern for us. That’s why we offer you a subsidy. Our consultants will be happy to provide you with individual advice.

Team events

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

Our monthly (!) team events are legendary! Whether it’s a baseball taster session, an Escape Room, a mountain hike, or a beer garden – our teams decide for themselves where to go. We also regularly organize cross-site events. Sometimes you can find a CEO at the barbecue or performing a song.

Vacation pay and Christmas bonus

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

As we all know, the vacation and Christmas season is particularly hard on the wallet. That’s why we offer all employees a small allowance in addition to their salary, with two one-off payments each – a vacation bonus and a Christmas bonus.

If you like, you can work remotely from your vacation destination with our Workation program, for example from an EEA country or from a few other selected countries. Would you rather have peace and quiet on the beach? We offer 30 days of vacation – then you can turn off your laptop and relax.

State-of-the-art IT infrastructure

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

Your start at pepper

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

We want that you to feel comfortable right from the start. That’s why we always have an onboarding event, during which you get to know your new colleagues, our products, and our culture. After that, you’ll continue in your department – with several weeks of individual training.

Your professional development

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

We want to grow together with you, so your personal and professional development is important to us. Which trainings, courses or seminars you need for your current or future role at pepper, you coordinate directly with your manager. The People&Culture team will also be happy to advise you.

„Corporate Benefits“ discount program

Icon für flexible Arbeitszeiten

Our employees get access to the „Corporate Benefits“ discount program. There you will find a wide range of discounts and offers from various providers (such as mobile phone contracts, hotel bookings, leisure activities, etc.) – the list is long. There is certainly something for you to find, too!

What does diversity mean for us?

It’s pretty simple: With us, you can be who you are – genuine and relaxed. You can and should always remain true to yourself in your working environment at pepper – without worrying about having to defend your unique personality.

At pepper, we have a wide variety of people working for us, which we consider to be a real blessing! We wear hoodies and traditional blazers, we say “Moin” and “Servus”, we have lentil curry and Leberkäs buns… Each and every one of us has many different facets and that’s a good thing. Because we like stereo music and no stereo-typing!

No matter how you live, who you love, where you come from – we are curious and tolerant, respect each other, learn from each other, and have fun together. Because equal opportunities are a matter close to our hearts – race, age, skin color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, or national or social origin make no difference for us! What is important to us is that we actively contribute to climate protection and together make the world a better place.

We are signatories to the “Charta der Vielfalt”, an initiative for the inclusion, appreciation and recognition of diversity in the world of work.

What application documents should I submit?

We need a cover letter, your resume, and relevant certificates and references from you. Please prepare all documents as PDF documents. We cannot open Word documents for security reasons.

Can I submit a speculative application?

Please do! Send us your speculative application by e-mail to When we advertise a new position, we also scan our pool of speculative applications for suitable candidates. Please make sure your application lists your possible start date and desired salary.

How does the application process proceed?

You submit your application documents – for example by e-mail or via a job portal such as Stepstone. By the way, sending all documents (cover letter, resume, relevant certificates, and references) as PDF documents shortens the process. Please remember to indicate any period of notice and your desired salary.

We will carefully review your application documents, compare your profile with the job requirements, and consult with the specialist department.

If the first impression is positive, we will arrange an initial interview with you. As we usually conduct this over the phone, it is vital to include your current phone number in your application documents.

We will get to know each other better in an initial online interview (via Teams, about 30 min.). And of course, you are welcome to ask us questions, too. We then discuss our impressions from the initial interview with the specialist department and decide whether to invite you for a second interview.

Follow-up interviews take place – wherever possible – face-to-face on site in Denkendorf or Garching. You will then speak to the line manager and have the opportunity to clarify further details about the position and the general conditions.

If you suit us and we suit you, congratulations – the job’s yours! We will start the onboarding process by sending you a contract of employment, and you will receive an invitation to an introduction day at one of our locations. This is where you will be given your laptop and company phone, as well as lots of important information about starting at pepper. You will also have the chance to meet your new colleagues.

What is the interview process?

We will send you an e-mail invitation containing a link for the initial interview. This link will enable you to join a Microsoft Teams meeting with us using your web browser – very easily and without you having to install anything on your device. You can use your PC and webcam, laptop, tablet, or even your smartphone. And if things don’t work as expected, we’ll still make the call by phone.

We do not do pressure interviews! We want to get to know you as an equal and we attach great importance to a pleasant atmosphere for the interview. The aim of the interview is to assess your suitability for the job, and to find out more about your qualifications, professional experience, and career history. We are particularly interested in the ‘why’ behind each stage of your development. What drives you? What is your goal? We are of course also interested in your personality, motivation, communication skills, and the right team spirit. We will also give you an insight into pepper, our culture (by the way, we are all on first-name terms) as well as the associated conditions and benefits.

At the end of the interview, you will know more about pepper, you will be able to judge whether we are the right company for you, and we will have been able to get to know you better as a person.
