Here are answers to (hopefully) all your questions!

Applying in times of COVID-19
Is TraceTronic still taking on new employees and trainees?

Yes, we're always on the lookout for talented people to enrich our teams with their skills and ideas.

Do I currently have to plan more lead time for my application?

You're welcome to apply three to six months before your desired start date. That means we can be in contact at an early stage and not just last minute.

Do I currently have to expect delays in the application process?

Unfortunately, it can currently take a little longer (i.e. more than two weeks) to receive feedback on your application or your interview, as the current demand within the teams is subject to dynamic development and can change at short notice.

Do job interviews currently only take place via video call?

Personal contact is important to us, therefore we would like to enable you to have at least one conversation on site at the respective location, so you can meet your future colleagues personally and get a feel for TraceTronic. If you feel more comfortable, we can conduct the interview also as a video meeting.

Please always observe our current COVID-19 regulations*.

Under what conditions are job interviews held on site?

Your interview will take place in a larger conference room where the minimum distance can be maintained so that masks don't need to be worn during the interview. The conference room is also adequately ventilated before and during the interview. However, we ask you to wear a mask in the indoor common areas at TraceTronic.

Please always observe our current COVID-19 regulations*.

My first day of work is approaching, but one or more stipulations in the current COVID-19 regulations* apply to me. What do I need to do?

Please contact us by phone at +49 351 205768-330 or by e-mail at jobs@tracetronic.de and together we'll find a solution.

*COVID-19 regulations

  • I have (knowingly) had contact with a person infected with COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

General questions
Who can I turn to?

Generally speaking, our entire HR team supports your quest of entering our organization as one of our team members.

However, Julia Fischer (+49 351 205768-330 | jobs@tracetronic.de) will most usually be your first person of contact. She will gladly inform you about current job offerings and the status of your application.

Are all the available jobs up-to-date?

Yes, all job offerings listed on our homepage are valid.

As we find ourselves en route to more employee growth, we are constantly looking for new colleagues. Due to the fact that we are seeking out similar employee profiles for a variety of projects, we keep our postings online over a longer period of time. We hope that doesn’t stir up any confusion. Once we have determined that a job offering is no longer available, we will deactivate it immediately.

Is there some kind of application deadline?

No, there is no general deadline for the submission of your application. However, sometimes we may specify one. Here’s a practical rule of thumb: our job offerings are valid as long as they are posted online.

In case you prefer a specific date of entry, please let us know without hesitation. Ideally, you can do that about one month in advance, so that we have a realistic chance of making it happen.

Student job offerings can usually be filled at shorter notice.

Can I apply for multiple job postings?

Yes, this is possible. Simply inform us, which positions have sparked your interest and, if relevant, please also identify which locations you are applying for.

Are you a fan of self-initialized spontaneous applications?

Yes, we truly are. We will thoroughly look over your documents and determine how we could best benefit from your qualities and experience.

Application process
How should I apply?

Please submit your entire set of documents to jobs@tracetronic.de. We prefer to receive applications through email, because we have learned that communication becomes much easier (mostly) and that we can give you feedback on your application rather quickly.

In case you prefer the traditional method, you may also send your application by mail to the following address:
TraceTronic GmbH
Human Resources
Stuttgarter Str. 3
01189 Dresden

Which documents and information will you need from me?

We would like to receive a personal letter of application, your resume, as well as all relevant and available educational and/or training-related certifications. If you are a student applicant, you should attach a current overview of your grades.

As we aspire to fill our vacancies to an ideal extent, (most of) our job postings do not specify a starting date. That’s because it’s not set in stone. Consequently, we would like you to inform us about your period of notice and desired date of entry.

You are applying for an internship or student trainee position? Great, then we kindly ask you to let us know when you’re available to support us.

How soon can I expect an answer on my application?

Within a few days of your formal application, you will receive a note of acknowledgement. If necessary, we will request additional documents from you in this note, as well.

Thereafter, you can expect the first feedback to roll along within the next two weeks. It may sometimes take a bit of time until we reach a final decision, as we do not handle your application lightly and would like to analyze it both carefully and adequately. If you have any questions regarding your application, you can always get in touch with us.

How will I be notified on my application status?

Preferably, we would like to communicate via email. Acknowledgement of received documents – sometimes also letters of rejection – will normally be transmitted through this medium. In the event of questions or the arrangement of job interviews, we will most likely and very gladly pick up the phone. After all, when it comes to details, we prefer personal and direct communication. That’s also one of the core principles in our company.

What should I wear for job interviews?

Pretty simple: wear what you would usually wear to feel comfortable. We don’t want you to be someone else while you’re here, nor should you worry too much about impression management. Some people like suits and ties, while others prefer jeans and a t-shirt. There are no limitations whatsoever. Your interview partners will very likely be wearing their everyday clothes, just so you know.

Should I bring any documents with me for a job interview?

No, we’ve got all we need from the documents you submitted in your application. In case you would like to supplement this set of documents, or perhaps would like to use them throughout the interview process, you can surely bring those documents along.

Will I be addressed formally or informally during our conversations?

We cultivate an open mindset and communicative company culture, so our interaction is fairly informal overall. Naturally, this principle guides us through networking events, such as exhibitions, but also on our website. In light of your application process, however, we also want to adhere to the general business etiquette and, of course, will address you formally. The change-over to informality will come rather incidentally, especially when you have signed your contract with us.

What should I expect from the job interview?

We want to get to know you both personally and as a potential employee. This is why we usually invite you to Dresden, so that you can meet someone related to your technical interests and one of our recruiting experts for your first interview. If all goes well and the chemistry is flourishing, we will set up another interview with a few more colleagues from your future team at the location you applied for. Please expect all interviews to last about 90 minutes.

You are applying for an internship or student trainee position? In this case, you will typically get to know your future advisor during your interview. Aside from presenting the position and potentially relevant areas of our organization to you, you will have plenty of time to debate your expectations with us, ask questions, or communicate your wishes to us.

How fast will I be contacted after the interview?

During our conversation, we will agree on a time period for giving you feedback. Normally, we don’t take longer than two weeks. Should you need faster feedback from us, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Will I be reimbursed for my costs associated with the job interview?

We don’t generally cover your travel expenses. However, for longer journeys (e.g. when you have the first interview in Dresden), we offer to reimburse your transportation costs at 30 cents per kilometer or we will cover your 2nd class train ticket. Should this apply to you, you may make travel arrangements on your own, or you could ask for our assistance in booking or travel organization in general. Enclosed in the invitation for your job interview, we will send you the travel expense sheet.

Will TraceTronic recommend me to other companies, even though it didn’t work out between us?

Absolutely. We will recommend high quality applicants directly to our partners at the Empfehlungsbund

How it works.

What will happen to my personal data?

Data protection is important to us. Your personal data will be treated exclusively in compliance with the regulations of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Upon completion of your application process, your data and documents will be stored in our system up to a maximum of six months before being deleted. You may, of course, withdraw your application by sending us an email to jobs@tracetronic.de whenever you wish. Further information on the data protection regulations is available here.

Your entry
I have received a job confirmation, what’s next?

Congratulations and welcome on board at TraceTronic! We are very happy to have you with us.

After we have exchanged all contractual documents, we will organize everything for you to have a smooth start with the company. During these preparations, we will tell you everything you need to know surrounding your first days and steps at TraceTronic.

It goes without saying that we will gladly be available to you to address any questions, ideas or personal wishes you may have.

What can I do to prepare for my adventure with TraceTronic?

On your first day at work, one of our HR associates will sit down with you and go through information on everyday work activities. We want you to feel comfortable right away, which is why we will have a mentor ready for you when you arrive (although you will be welcomed by the entire team). Your mentor should make the technical onboarding easier for you, but he or she can also provide answers to all your questions.

We are here for you.

Just talk to us!
