Currently we offer the following job opportunities


Position

XAML Design Engineer (f/m)

Contract Type

Permanent/full time

Location

Munich or Saarbrücken

Philosophy

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.

Key Responsibilities

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

Further Prerequisites

  • 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

Benefits

Are you interested in working with us? We are glad to hear that. At Centigrade we work on projects that inspire both us and our customers and are valuable for both sides. As a member of our team you can get involved in topics you are really interested in. Here is what you can expect from us:

  • Varying tasks and individual development
  • Flexible working hours
  • Open communication and constructive feedback in a qualified, interdisciplinary team
  • Salary in-line with industry standards as well as non-cash benefits
  • Exciting projects in different industries with various clients: From small business clients to internationally operating corporations
  • Small, project-specific teams and flat hierarchies
  • Further education, for example by participating in conferences
  • Free drinks
  • An exchange of experience and expertise between colleagues in our weekly insight sessions
  • Ergonomic workstations
  • Boxes full of Lego as well as the opportunity to try new digital gadgets
  • A dog – unfortunately only in Saarbrücken ;)
  • You miss something? We will welcome suggestions from you as an employee.
