What you bring to the table:

Finally, do you have a strong personality and excellent verbal and written communication skills in German and English? We’d love to meet you!


What we bring to the table:
Beyond a competitive salary, a company car, laptop, mobile phone and a clothing budget, working at G-Star brings many other benefits and exciting opportunities: an awesome and diverse team that collaborates to change the game; a work environment that offers room for development, fun, inspiration and innovation; international cooperation with our Amsterdam HQ.

What will happen next:
• We will thoroughly review your CV.
• We have an international community at G-Star, so please apply in English.
• When we hopefully find what we are looking for, we will call you for a chat and if it’s a good fit, we’ll plan our first interview.
• Because we’re very curious how you’d survive a mission impossible, we ask you to prepare a real-life business case in a follow-up interview.
• When we’re ready to commit to each other, we’ll finalize the terms we’ve discussed and we’ll explain to you how to order your first pair of jeans from the G-Star employee store. Good luck.
