Your Application

When applying for a job at Quintiq, whether by mail, email or online, you'll be expected to submit a resume and cover letter. These two documents are how we decide whether you could be right for the job, so be sure to:

Rock your resume

Quintiq receives hundreds of resumes every week, but only a small percentage of candidates are invited to interview. Here are some tips to keeping your resume off the reject pile:

  • Limit the length. Even senior professionals with loads of experience should keep their resume to two pages. At the most. Submit in either doc. or pdf. format.
  • Include all required information. Definitely include:
    • Contact details
    • Skills & qualifications
    • Work experience (beginning with current/most recent job)

    And if relevant to the job, also include

    • Memberships to professional organizations
    • Hobbies & interests
  • Tailor your resume to the job. A generic resume fails to highlight your most relevant skills, qualifications and experience.
  • Exclude any irrelevant information. For example, don’t list part-time jobs you had in high school unless you can show how they have prepared you for this position.
  • Keep the language simple and direct. Avoid long sentences and long paragraphs.
  • Use bullets where possible, and list qualifications and experience in chronological order. It should be easy for managers and HR to find the information they’re looking for.
  • Edit, edit, edit. A sloppy, badly written resume creates a bad impression. If possible, get someone else to look at it. They'll spot the errors you missed.
Craft a killer cover letter

Cover letters are your best chance to show why you're the right person for the job. While resumes tend to be fairly standard, a great cover letter can make you stand out in a crowd. By all means, be creative and enthusiastic. But also remember to:

  • Limit the length. Keep it to one page, and put the best bits into the first and second paragraphs. Grab the attention of a busy HR manager.
  • Refer to the job description. Tell us how you meet the requirements.
  • Tell us what isn’t in your resume. We already have that. Tell us about other things, like how you work in a team or other handle problems.
  • Explain why you're the right candidate. Both for this job and for Quintiq.
  • Tailor your cover letter to the vacancy. HR managers can spot a generic copy-and-pasted cover letter from a mile off.
  • Again, edit, edit, edit. You only get one chance to make a first impression.

The Interviews

Stage 1

Introductory meeting

Think of this as our first date.
It's all about getting to know each other, determining whether we make a good match. It is also about sharing passions and future plans. We want to understand what motivates you, what makes you happy, what makes you tick. We'll chat to you about where Quintiq comes from, where we are today and where we are going in the future. At this stage, we'll also ask you about your professional background, focusing on your education, work experience, areas of expertise, and past accomplishments. Tell us what you can bring to Quintiq, and what you expect in return. We'll also describe the vacant position, and answer any questions you may have about the role. Our goal is to make sure we are compatible, to offer the right job to the right person.

Stage 2

Follow-up interview

In the follow-up interview we will look at the job description in more detail. You'll get the chance to meet Quintiq people and future colleagues. This step enables us to get to know you better and can provide you with a deeper understanding of what it will be like to work at Quintiq. In some cases, where we have covered everything sufficiently in stage 1, a candidate may proceed directly to the practical test.

Practical test

You've done one or two interviews. You've met some of the people you'll be working with. You like us. We like you. What's next?

It's the practical test. Here's your opportunity to show us what you can do. Depending on the position you are applying for, the test can vary from working at our reception desk for an hour (reception/administration/PA candidates), processing a purchase order (accounting/bookkeeping), writing a customer letter (marketing), and solving planning puzzles using the Quintiq software (consultant), to reviewing complicated C++/Java code with our software architects (R&D). The test is conducted internally by your future Quintiq colleagues – it will reflect as closely as possible the work you'll be expected to undertake if you are offered the role. We don't use external organizations, and we don't employ psychometric testing. The test will give you confirmation that working with Quintiq is all about having fun while overcoming challenges, not forgetting the thrill of working with a team of smart people who feel as passionate about their jobs as you do.


The job offer

You wowed us in the interviews. You passed the test with flying colors. You made a great impression on your future colleagues. What’s next? At this point we’ll decide whether to offer you a job. We’ll email or call you to explain our decision. We know that waiting for a phone call from a potential employer can be nerve wracking – feel free to give us a call if you just can’t wait any longer. When we make a job offer, we’ll outline the salary and other benefits that we’ve agreed upon, and agree upon your official start date. If you’re an excellent candidate, but the role isn’t quite right for you, we’ll put you in our database and get in touch as soon as the right vacancy comes up. We might even create a role for you if we feel you’d be an invaluable addition to the team.

Meet your mentor

On your first day you’ll be met by your manager and mentor. Your mentor is likely to be someone who is currently working or has previously worked in a role similar to yours. Your mentor is on hand to make sure you feel at home as quickly as possible. You are free to contact your mentor whenever you have a question, whether you’d like to know where the bathroom is or you’re struggling to get to grips with the intricacies of the Quintiq software.

Welcome to Quintiq

You’ll begin your induction program on your first day. The induction period can be anything from three days to three months depending on your job and location. During this time, you’ll get the opportunity to meet several people in our organization, including the CEO, Rob van Egmond. Your induction will be guided by your team manager, who’ll have a clear understanding of the tools you need to do your job. You’ll have lots of time to get to know your team, learn about Quintiq, and brush up on the skills you’ll need for your job. You’ll shadow your peers, try your hand at solving Quintiq puzzles, and take part in in-house training to prepare you for your role.

The first few weeks are a whirlwind of meetings and an avalanche of information, but don’t worry - your colleagues and mentor will be nearby to support you and answer any questions.


You will receive an automatic e-mail notification confirming your application

A Quintiq recruiter will contact you by phone or email within 10 working days..

If you don't hear from a recruiter within 10 working days, you can email to ask about the status of your application.

Typically it takes at least four weeks from the time you submit your application to the time we make an offer of a job. It may be another month or more until you start work, depending on the period of notice required at your current place of work and other administrative issues. The typical recruitment cycle might look something like this:

  • A recruiter reviews your application and contacts you to invite you for the first interview: five working days
  • First interview and logic test: half day
  • Technical test: half day (one week after the first Interview)
  • Job offer: three working days after technical test
  • First day at Quintiq: four weeks after accepting the job offer

You can only apply to one job at a time.. Please review each vacancy carefully and apply for the one that best fits your skills and experience. We’ll keep your resume in our database and contact you if we have other vacancies we think may suit you.
