Officially, a "minimum of German knowledge" is mandatory, which means probably A1/A2:

The Au pair must prove a minimum of German knowledge (school lessons or one semester of studying or a language course) before the start of the employment by presenting a school report or other certificate in German or English translation and shall deepen their language skills by living with the host family

agency support

It's not mandatory to involve an au pair agency to become or employ an au pair in Austria.

But if you decide to involve an agency, you should check if they have a "Gewerbeberechtigung" / Business License and are therefore officially allowed to place au pairs.

World

other restrictions

If the au pair has worked as an au pair in Austria before, this has to be less than a total of 12 months accumulated in the last 5 years.
