what about employment contract? Is it possible to somehow construct and sign it remotely?The job itself is software development and can be done remotely, but I'm not sure what kind of bureaucracy this brings. I hope it's not necessary to wait at least till 15.6, that is when work permits will be issued again.
Forget it, it's not going to happen - either the face to face interview or getting in without a permit.

"What does the policy of refusal of entry actually mean?
Any foreign nationals who wish to enter Switzerland country and do not hold a valid residence or work permit will be refused entry.

Persons seeking employment or who have been invited for a job interview in Switzerland;
Persons who wish to submit an application for a residence permit."

"What exceptions apply to this border closure?
The border control authority will not allow you to enter Switzerland unless you meet at least one of the following requirements:

You are a Swiss citizen.
You hold a travel document and a residence permit, i.e. a Swiss residence permit (L / B / C / Ci permits), a cross-border permit (G permit; only for work-related purposes), an FDFA legitimation card, a D visa issued by Switzerland or a C visa issued by Switzerland for the purpose of attending professional consultations as a health sector specialist or for making an official visit of vital importance or an assurance of resident permit (an employment contract is not sufficient to cross the Swiss border). Persons with an assurance of a residence permit may enter Switzerland at the earliest three days before the date on which assurance becomes valid."

You will not get this because the position will not be important enough to warrant issuing the assurance of a permit. Like it or not, you'll have to wait until the restrictions are relaxed. Which may be June or could be longer.

"How long do these measures apply at the Swiss border?
The Ordinance applies for as long as necessary, but for a maximum of 6 months."

If the job can be done remotely then there's no need for a Swiss permit anyway since you wouldn't need to move here.
