We are a fast-paced software company in Berlin, Germany, with a focus on developing graphics products that stand out from the crowd. More than 750,000 users world-wide rely on our software for their daily business as it makes creating graphical presentations so much easier, faster and more enjoyable. Among our customers are many renowned consulting companies and large international corporations. We do not have to make compromises with regard to code quality and beauty, because our company is profitable and has no outside investors. We are willing to go the extra mile of developing sophisticated algorithms and refining our user interface, and we are proud of our many happy customers. The fact that the company is owned and managed by seasoned computer scientists certainly contributes to a working environment that makes exceptional developers come and stay.
Our focus is on business slides (as opposed to more artful applications) because they offer great potential for automation of layout tasks that are traditionally performed by PowerPoint users themselves. Challenges are plenty: from a solid understanding of what makes a good layout and which guidelines are followed by humans who do manual layout, to algorithms that produce an acceptable output fast enough for interactive slide design, to a graphical user interface that supports our new, original approach to slide layout in a way that is easy to understand yet unobtrusive, to solid technical solutions for automatic bug reporting and automatic updates, to compatibility with third-party software on the computers of half a million users. We know that our success is based on the skills and dedication of our team members. Therefore, we maintain a welcoming and friendly working environment that makes exceptional people come and stay. Because think-cell is highly profitable and has no outside investors, we follow our own strategy and do not have to make compromises with regard to code quality and beauty. Our software is leased which leads to continuous feedback and improvement. Rushed, marketing-driven deadlines are unknown because we only release the software when it is ready. We have a pretty unique corporate culture that could just be the perfect fit for you. Here is a glance at our working environment. A shared vision think-cell was founded in 2002 by computer science PhDs and former schoolmates Arno and Markus. With a common vision of applying advanced computer graphics and AI technology to slide creation, they built a company that today serves over 750,000 users worldwide. Most likely due to Arno's and Markus' academic roots, think-cell is flourishing without program managers and lengthy meetings. Yet another day at the office? At think-cell, we believe that a healthy work-life-balance is a key factor in promoting happiness and productivity. We do not work at night or on weekends, yet offer a very competitive salary. We provide the best equipment money can buy and offer all the perks you can think of. We know that every team member's needs are different, and we try to meet these as best we can. Writing code is not a lonely business Our CTO Arno maintains a close working relationship with all of our developers. Together, they review code, troubleshoot, and brainstorm. But sometimes a developer's solution is already perfect from the get-go. In this case, it is directly incorporated into think-cell's code. An office building with history Here at think-cell, we like to combine convenience with aesthetics – and not just when writing code. Therefore, our office is in a beautiful brick building conveniently located in the heart of Berlin's central Mitte-neighborhood. It is easy to reach by public transportation, and many restaurants with excellent lunch options are only a short walk away. One restaurant is even located in our own green and spacious courtyard. The building itself is rather famous and has a rich history. In the 19th century, it housed Prussia's first private iron foundry and locomotive factory – a milestone in Berlin's early industrialization. While the building is completely modernized, you can still see some remnants of the old factories. Cuties on the couch With dogs as well-behaved as Anita's, there's no need for a leash. Quti, age 9, and Kiro, 10, are just regular team members, so they get to hang out on the couch like everyone else. We asked Anita, one of our sales reps, how the two get along. "Like teenage siblings," she said. Green commute Software developer Volker lives in Friedenau, in the southwest of Berlin. Every day, he rides his bike to work. The last part of Volker's commute takes him through Tiergarten, the city's central park, past the Reichstag, the seat of the German parliament, and across the Spree, Berlin's biggest river. When he arrives at work, he strolls across our green courtyard and into the office. And his bike goes with him – it makes a great wall decoration.
