How is work life at think-cell?

think-cell is a small and fast-paced software company in Berlin, Germany, with a focus on developing graphics software that stand out from the crowd. 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 and some of our people.

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 Technical Director 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.

Investing in the future

Keeping in touch with emerging talents is a priority at think-cell. Therefore, HR team members like Soledad and Marisa have an important job to do: they plan events like our famous EAT++ series, where we invite computer science students to informal conversations with our C++ developers over delicious food and drinks. Some of our developers also give talks and workshops in order to share their knowledge.

Playing with Ida

Children are more than welcome at think-cell. After all, they're the future. And who knows? Maybe young Phidias here will turn out to be a coding ace someday. His dad is Arno, our Technical Director, so the odds could be in his favor. But right now, he just enjoys playing with Ida, our babysitter and nanny.

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.

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 550,000 users worldwide. Most likely due to Arno's and Markus' academic roots, think-cell is flourishing without program managers and lengthy meetings. Read the full story here.
