Revolutionizing tech recruiting

As a joint venture of CARIAD (a Volkswagen Group company) and Expertlead we are revolutionizing tech recruiting in the automotive industry and strengthening tech expertise across all Volkswagen Group brands. We achieve that by combining our core strengths: deep tech expertise and market insights, tech enabled recruiting process for an objective and attractive customer experience, power of a global corporation and agility of a startup.

No convention, only talent

We are bringing forward a new and more transparent way of screening candidates. When it comes to getting the brightest tech talent, we want the coding skills to do the talking. Our approach offers clear and open communication ensuring a positive candidate experience, while at the same time providing credibility and objectivity to the recruiting process.

Driven by a visionary approach

We see the future in need of imagination and innovation. Therefore we enable a radical shift in the car-manufacturing industry toward a more software-centric approach. Our unique screening and hiring process is centered on peer-to-peer interviews, thus enabling to find the best and brightest tech talent who will shape mobility for generations to come.

Agility that delivers​

Our innovative approach reduces the overhead ubiquitous to outdated hiring practices. We deliver fast and agile recruitment that enables quick scaling and rapid team building. Our approach brings speed and an agile startup-like mindset to a big organization. We strive to attract and engage the talent needed to catalyze the transformation of all Volkswagen Group brands.
