Frequently asked questions

I am interested in multiple positions at Smartlane. Can I apply for several positions at the same time?

If you are not just a specialist in one area, you are welcome to apply for several positions  at the same time.

Can I contact the Smartlane team directly?

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at We will get back to you as soon as possible.

What happens at Smartlane with my unsolicited applications?

Even if we don’t have a suitable job at the moment, we are happy to receive an unsolicited application. Your unsolicited application will end up in our applicant pool and will be screened by Recruiting and forwarded to the appropriate departments. Simply state the areas of expertise in your cv and where you see yourself working in the future. If we can not offer a suitable position,we will store your application in our applicant pool and get in contact with you if there is a suitable job opening.

What is the selection process?

After we receive your application, we check it carefully and after a few days you will get the first feedback. You have been invited to an interview? Great, then you will have a first interview with our lovely Nina. In the second interview you will get to know the team and the team leader of your applied department. If this interview also went very well and you impressed them with your skills, you will get to know our founders in the third round and be able to convince them of your abilities.

If you apply for a “Head of” position, the recruiting process is not quite finished yet. In a final interview, you get to know  our investors.

How do I prepare myself for an interview?

The best way to prepare yourself for an interview is to compare the requirements and skills with the job advertisement. If both matches, it is of course desirable and appreciated if the candidate informs himself about Smartlane and the industry and also finds out for himself what his expectations of Smartlane are. Since we would like to get to know you personally as well as possible during virtual conversations, test your equipment (microphone and camera) in advance. This means that nothing stands in the way of a smooth process with image and sound.

How does my first week of work and onboarding look like?

To help you get to know Smartlane and the different areas even better, we invite you to our onboarding sessions during the first days. In a total of six onboarding sessions, you will gain insights about Smartlane and the founders, HR/People, Marketing, Sales, Customer Solutions and Engineering. Of course, we would also like to get to know you on a personal level over lunch (lunch lotto) or a delicious cup of coffee.

How does my onboarding work as a fully remote employee at Smartlane?

Onboarding is the most important time to internalize the Smartlane culture, build your professional network, get to know your team and our product. That’s why we organize onboarding on-site whenever possible and encourage newcomers to spend their first days in the office. If it’s not possible to attend an in-person onboarding, we’ll make sure you’re well integrated into the virtual onboarding. We will send the hardware and your “Welcome Package” before your first day at work. During six virtual onboarding sessions you will have the opportunity to get to know our departments and the Smartlane culture.

What are my working models at Smartlane?

Basically, you can say that there are three different working models available to you: You have a 100% remote contract, a hybrid contract (home office days are fixed) or a 100% office contract.

What benefits are offered?

For us at Smartlane, it is extremely important that every single employee feels welcome. We offer several benefits for our team, for example, the flexibility we offer you, fitness support, but also the most modern equipment.

What kind of training opportunities do you offer?

Continuous growth and further development are very important to us – also for our employees! For this purpose, we offer a generous training budget of € 1,500 per year, so that you can develop personally and professionally.
