Teamwork & Hierarchy

Whether trainee or senior: in our flat hierarchy everyone counts and is equally important. We can all rely on receiving support from our colleagues at all times. Because “ONE TEAM – ONE MISSION” is written very large in our company.
It is our priority that everyone from the team is involved in decision making. We discuss the pros and cons in a joint round and evaluate them so that everyone can understand the decision at the end.

That's what we offer you.
Of course, these are not empty promises, but our philosophy of our togetherness.

Whenever it’s convenient, but at least once a week, we hold what we call our “coffee party” during times we are all working remotely. Everyone has the opportunity to talk about something that has nothing to do with work.
We regularly exchange information with each other in separate meetings so that each member of the team knows what the other is doing and understands this task and its content.
We regularly plan company events, sometimes without an occasion, where we organize summer parties and barbecues in our boss’s garden, go on short hikes, visit Escape Rooms or climbing gyms, go on a bike ride, take a spontaneous trip to the lake when the heat becomes unbearable, or do other things that unite our team together even more.
We love to eat and want to make sure that all team members are happy. We always have fruit and sweets on hand and a fridge with various drinks is also available to everyone. Every now and then we also plan to cook together.
We often spend many hours concentrating on our projects. Therefore, it is important that the workplace is designed for everyones needs. Our desks are height adjustable and the chairs… too 😛
We do not have a sports room, but all employees have the opportunity to become a “Urban Sports Club” member. We cover the costs for your membership … at least as a compensation for the “chairs”.
We have the working model “flextime” here at Webrunners. You have the possibility to decide when you want to start your work and when to finish it. Our core working hours are from 10 am to 2 pm.

Working from everywhere

You don’t live in Cologne, the Cologne area or even Germany? No problem! We also offer the possibility to work remotely, so that you can still be part of our team. We are also open for freelancers.

Our application process

To give you an idea of how the application process at Webrunners works and what to expect, we have outlined the process in 6 steps.
Step 1
Applicant pre-selection

First of all, we make a pre-selection and decide which applicants might be a good fit for us. These will then be contacted by our recruiter and invited to a (zoom) meeting.
So we look forward to your convincing application 🙂

Step 2
Get to know each other

The recruiter will have a comfortable and open conversation with you. Here you can point out your personality and skills. If you have made a good impression on the recruiter after the initial interview and we also meet your expectations, an appointment will be made for a meeting with the CEO.

Step 3
Meeting CEO

Our CEO will also want to get to know you briefly. During the interview, you will additionally go into the focus of your activity. If there is still interest in a collaboration on both sides, we agree with you a trial day in the following week and prepare everything internally for this.

Step 4
Trial day

For the trial day, personal accounts will be created for you. You will have about 2 hours to set up your work environment and accounts before you start working on the task, which you will receive by email at the beginning of the day.

Step 5
Task processing

First, you create a repository and give your contact person access to it. After that, if we have clarified all open questions regarding the guidelines, we will check your current progress of the task before the break. After the break, you have another 2 hours to complete the task. Afterwards, we will evaluate the result internally.

Step 6

After the evaluation, we will give you detailed feedback on your trial day. Finally, a final meeting with the CEO would take place, who will discuss all further contract details with you in case of acceptance.
Should you receive a rejection from us, we will gladly give you tips on the way, what could be improved from our point of view. But we are also open to your feedback.
