Make us your next destination.

Founded in 1997 as a subsidiary of the BMW Group, we’ve evolved into a leading global business mobility provider. The way we think about mobility and how businesses approach it is changing. Fast. And we’re part of that. If you’re passionate about how we get around, and want to work with others to change the face of business mobility, then you’ve come to the right place.

Why work with us?

Trust is important. If we’ve hired you, then it’s because we’re confident that you not only have the skills and experience we’re looking for, but that you’re the kind of person we need. Someone who wants to come up with new ideas, share them with others, design a plan to implement them and then work with passion to make sure they become reality.

At Alphabet, we believe that if you love what you do, everyone will feel it. Your colleagues will feel inspired. Our customers will feel loved. Service providers will feel passionate and preferred partners proud.

We’ll give you the freedom to grow and fulfil your potential. In case you need support then we’re here for you. And by ‘we’, we mean all of us. Connecting, sharing, and interacting with each other is just how we work here. Whether that’s in person in the office, or if you happen to be working from home, or someplace else, over the phone or web.

Lots of energy and enthusiasm goes into making Alphabet a brilliant place to work. We encourage you to push boundaries and to challenge yourself. We want you to feel empowered and to grow both professionally and personally, and of course to be happy and live well.  It's because of this philosophy, we are pleased to say we’ve been granted an Investors In People Award and Top Employers certification.

Alphabet only accepts online applications. You can apply through the BMW Group Careers page. Select the position you like and select "Apply now". Register your account by choosing a username and password. After logging in you can create your profile in the system following the step-by-step instructions. Your data will be stored for as long as you like. You can pause the application at any time and add or update data. When you have completed your application, please click on the button “Activate online application”. Our HR team can only consider activated profiles when matching concrete job vacancies with possible candidates.


If you are interested in more than one job, you can submit several applications at the same time in the Job Assistant.

The “Mailbox” contains all messages sent by Alphabet regarding your application. Responding promptly to applications is a priority for the Alphabet recruitment team. We will notify you as soon as your application has been reviewed. However, due to the large number of positions and applications, an initial response may take up to 14 days.

Don’t worry if you forgot your access data. Just send an email to the recruitment hotline or call +49 (0)89 382 17001.

This is not an automatic status – so it means that your application has been successfully received and is currently being reviewed.

Students who are enrolled at a university or a university of applied sciences or students who are currently between their bachelor’s and master’s studies, are eligible. For internships abroad: – Very good knowledge of English and/or the language of the respective host country – Good academic grades – Student status – A successfully completed domestic internship, employment as a working student or vocational training at the BMW Group/Alphabet is desirable.

Working Students: Your application should reach us four months prior to your desired start date. Internship abroad: Your completed application should reach the respective subsidiary company online or by email six months before the start of the internship.

For the protection of employees, the law governing part-time employment and fixed term employment contracts stipulates that a fixed-term employment contract may only be fulfilled one time in the same company.

The most important factor in your application is the overall impression. This includes your skills, knowledge and character, as well as the grades you achieved at school and college. These are not the only decisive factors, but they should not be neglected. However, the final decision on your application will ultimately depend on an ideal mix of all these aspects.

You can track the status of your application via the Job Assistant.

The Job Agent is a type of search engine for jobs at the BMW Group and thus also for Alphabet. If you save your job search profile, you will regularly be notified by email via the “Job Agent” menu about new and relevant jobs (“Jobs found”). You can amend your search profile at any time (“Search profiles”). The Job Agent only notifies you about jobs that are available; there is no automatic application sent in relation to such jobs. If you wish to apply you need to initiate an application under the Applications section.

It depends whether you have already selected a topic or theme for your thesis – if you have, you can propose your topic to Alphabet through a speculative application. If you haven’t decided on a topic, you can find interesting topics at our locations and in our divisions in the online job market.

Your attachments can be 4MB max.

The application process in general takes approximately 30 minutes.
