Your start with us: Welcome to mitcaps

It is important to us that you, as a new colleague, feel comfortable with us from day 1 and that you integrate quickly into the mitcaps team.

To support you during the initial phase, we have designed an onboarding plan. After a welcome and a round of introductions, you will receive your individual onboarding plan, which consists of various modules - depending on your function and career level. During the first few weeks of onboarding, you will get to know all relevant areas of the company and, in addition to department-specific and technical training, you will also receive an overview of our corporate values and history. A "buddy" will be at your side as a contact person for all organisational and personal matters.

Regular feedback sessions are a core component of your onboarding and allow for open feedback on goals already achieved and mutual expectations - and provide us with additional valuable input to continuously improve our onboarding process.

You will receive further details from the HR team before your interview.

How does onboarding take place in times of Corona?

We would like to make your start with us as pleasant and efficient as possible. Therefore, we are currently planning your induction completely on site in the office, in compliance with the necessary hygiene regulations and in accordance with the Occupational Health and Safety Ordinance. This gives you the opportunity to get to know your new colleagues personally from the very beginning and to ask any questions you may have, and we can provide you with optimal onboarding.

FAQs - General

Are advertised vacancies up to date?

We update our vacancies on a regular basis. All vacancies that you find on our careers page, are therefore still open.

Which qualification profiles are mainly sought at mitcaps?

mitcaps is a medium-sized company from the telecommunications industry. Therefore, we are primarily looking for technical qualification profiles from the fields of computer science, communications engineering, system integration or comparable fields.

However, talents with a business background are also sought after and welcome to fill our open positions, e.g. in sales.

I can't find a suitable position among the listed vacancies at the moment. Can I make a speculative application?

Yes, you are also welcome to send us an unsolicited application! In your cover letter, please specify the areas of application that interest you and the specialist areas in which you see your professional future at mitcaps. This makes it easier for us to match our vacancies with your profile. Suitable applications will be forwarded to the appropriate departments.

If a suitable position is not found immediately, we will be happy to add you to our talent pool - with your consent - and contact you at a later, suitable time. Of course, you have the option of having your data deleted at any time.

How does the interview work and how can I prepare myself?

Depending on the position, the first interviews last approx. 30 - 60 minutes and take place primarily by telephone or virtually via Webex. For all further interviews, we are happy to take more time, and you can expect 1-2 hours. As a rule, interviews are conducted directly with HR and the supervising department. However, you will always be informed in advance about all the participants in the interview. The interview serves to get to know each other, in the course of which we would like to learn more about your personality, skills and qualifications. Of course, you will also have the opportunity to ask your questions and get to know us as an employer.
