By: Wolf-Bastian Pöttner

The team of the Formula Student Germany tends to do things a bit different than others. Are you never satisfied and always striving for the best? Do you work day and night just to get the tiny details right? Are you a team player and interested in playing with new technology? Do slow processes frustrate you? Are you motivated by tight deadlines and never accept no for an answer? Come and join us as a volunteer, meet people that are just as crazy as you are and experience the highly rewarding FSG event from front-row seats!

If you are interested, please mail your application to
it-jobs(at)formulastudent.de. Please include a letter of motivation and possibly samples of your work.
