    O My Bag values diversity. We especially encourage males, members of the LGBTQ+ community and people of color to apply.

    In line with our goal to become a more diverse workplace, we post our vacancies on many different platforms in order to reach as many candidates as possible, especially outside of our own bubble.

    We also started to employ the Rooney rule, meaning that our goal is that at least one candidate from an at O My Bag underrepresented group is asked to do an assignment and invited to an interview for each open position.

    Moreover, our HR manager will forward application documents and assignments to the respective managers anonymously, to avoid any potential discrimination.
