Job description

About the company

The company is developing the leading data visualization software for business presentations. Their challenge is to offer the most intuitive user interface for generating complex data-driven charts and slides, while at the same time ensuring consistency, accuracy and seamless integration with Microsoft Office. They save time for their customers by automating many tasks for them, like chart labeling or slide layout. More than 1,000,000 users and 25,000 companies worldwide (such as American Express, Coca-Cola, EY, General Electric, Google, KPMG, Lufthansa, Pfizer, Siemens, and many others) rely on this software for their daily business.

The company was established in 2002 and now there are over 150 employees from more than 25 countries. They have offices in Denver and Boston (USA), Tokio (Japan), London (UK) and tech team in HQ in Berlin (Germany).

They work on challenging visualization problems, reverse engineering of Microsoft’s code, and reinventing the user interface. And they do this all based on their own pioneering C++ library, which they have the liberty to perfect along with the rest of their code. They’re the only German company funding a C++ ISO committee delegation, so there is a good chance that components they invent will find their way into the standard.

They are the kind of company developers truly like. In fact, of their now 20 full-time developers, in more than 20 years with them, only two ever quit their jobs. They are highly profitable, so they can give the time and resources to write beautiful code. There are no meetings. CTO is a computer science PhD, so no demands from manager who does not understand the trade.
