User interface design has never been more exciting than today as
modern devices and applications provide designers with new challenges.
Ranging from tiny embedded and mobile applications over classical web-
and desktop applications to gesture-controlled multi-touch programs our
international clients like to come up with outstanding GUIs - and ask
for our support in order to do so.
To meet these high demands now and in the future, we would like to
strengthen our team.

Currently we offer the following job opportunities
At Centigrade, we believe in user experience as a driver for great technology - not vice
versa. We think that when a software tool is perfectly aligned to its users' needs, it may
change the way users think and collaborate. Whenever we support our customers from diverse
industries in developing innovative user interface designs and technologies, we want to
reflect this very philosophy. In our agile software projects we realize outstanding user
interfaces with XAML and C# for Windows Desktop (WPF), Universal Windows Platform (UWP), Windows Phone
apps and many more.
Your mission as XAML Design Engineer
is to fully concentrate on the user interface and its Look & Feel to bring the software
to the next level. Your key responsibilities are:
Cherishing a clean coding style with XAML and C#
Proficient with the MVVM architectural pattern, knowing all its great benefits (and few misfortunes)
Experienced in creating "composite applications" using common frameworks like PRISM
Confident with versioning software such as TFS, Git or Perforce
Proficient with high-quality XAML templates for all sorts of controls, being them standard, custom or third party
Experienced with realizing stunning visual designs and smart interaction designs in detail
Finally, being enthusiastic about programming for Kinect, playing adventure games, reading
comics and constructing Lego is not a must-have but a big plus, as it speaks volumes about you.
Interests and Soft Skills
Just like us, you do not see yourself as the lonely programmer working in a dark cellar
room. Under this precondition, you are:
Not intimidated by sophisticated UI design concepts which come up with gesture control, animations and responsive design. These trigger your ambitions!
A natural team player and you like to communicate
Quick on shifting levels from big picture to smallest detail, from problem to solution, from holistic to focused approaches and vice versa
Creative in finding solutions and like working on a white board - instead of using digital media all the time
Experienced with and committed to agile development - SCRUM(But), Continuous Integration, Sprints, User Stories, Estimation Poker, you name it
Bachelor's degree or equivalent in computer science, information systems or related fields
Fluent in written and spoken German and English
If possible, meaningful work samples (including code snippets, blog articles or other documentation
