Our Hybrid working model

At HelloFresh, our domestic remote work approach is called Flexible Hybrid. Outside of the team and company days which are mandatory, employees can freely choose when to work from the office or home targeting a 50-50 split as general guidance.

The office is open for anyone who would prefer to work from the office, or who has critical in-person business in the office.

    Some useful hints for you!

    Subjects such as the Anmeldung (registration of your residential address), how & where to open a Bank account, and German Social Security may seem challenging.

    Free German bank account

    As an employee of HelloFresh, you can benefit from special conditions and expert services offered by Deutsche Bank.

    Deutsche Bank offers special private accounts that can be opened also by people without a permanent residence in Germany. However, this would have to be opened directly in one of their branches. 

    Just complete the Advantage coupon and take it to your nearest Deutsche Bank branch to open your account.
