Find Your Next Opportunity
Our six-month internship programme is designed to help you understand what working as a full-time employee is like. You’ll be assigned real projects, work with your team and contribute directly to your team’s goals and objectives. We hire interns year-round and are open to student and graduate applicants from bachelor’s and master’s programmes.
As a working student, you will be working part-time on a dedicated team while pursuing your studies. You’ll gain experience and insight into your team’s day-to-day responsibilities while supporting them in achieving their goals. You must be enrolled full-time at a university and available to work 16–20 hours per week. We hire working students year-round for our locations in Germany.
No matter what role or tenure, interviews consist of behavioural questions and scenario-based questions. Behavioural questions are specifically-designed questions inspired by the core pillars against which all Wayfair employees are assessed: We Drive Results, We Win Together, and We Are Always Improving. Scenario-based questions are used to assess how candidates might operate in a real-world setting. Here are some tips to help you prepare!
Matt Cabral is no stranger to transitions. After nearly eight years of service in the United States Army, he transitioned from his position as Captain to enter civilian life and faced a pivotal moment shared by many of his fellow veterans: how to translate the experiences and invaluable skills he gained during his time in service to a new kind of workforce. To help make that transition, he turned to Hiring Our Heroes.

As data scientists at Wayfair, we want to solve these customer problems by algorithmically extracting the color information from the products and assigning customer-friendly color names.
