Career events

Meet us at one of our special events

All the great minds of our time have one thing in common: They have to eat something now and then.

Unknown thinker

think-cell takes this need very seriously, which is why it came up with the EAT++ series of career events. We regularly invite computer science students to talk over a meal in a relaxed atmosphere. We also support conferences on C++, Artificial Intelligence and Computer Graphics and give technical talks or complete technical courses on topics our developers know by heart. And we love to support and join all kinds of student parties at renowned computer science departments with good food and drinks.

We decided to do this, because we are constantly on the lookout for new software developers. We are very interested in emerging talent and will be happy to stay in touch with you over the longer term. Even if you have no specific plans for your professional future, we would still like to get to know you. And we think we can do that best when meeting in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.

C++ Meetup in Belgium
October 10th, 2019

As summer comes to an end, the new event season has started. We are happy to open the series of events with C++ Meetup in Belgium and are excited to meet the “BeC++ UG” community on October 10th at Brabanthal Center, Leuven.

We’ll start with some drinks and snacks, followed by community lead Marc Gregoire’s talk “C++20: What’s in it for you?” where he presents an overview of what people can expect from the new standard.

After a short break, our CTO Arno will continue with “From Iterators To Ranges — The Upcoming Evolution Of the Standard Library” and give an overview of think-cell, the company and the product.

Are you in Leuven on October 10th? Don’t miss the chance to attend the meetup! Registration is “here”.

VIScon Symposium 2019 at ETH Zurich
October 12th, 2019

Having had a great experience attending VIS Kontaktparty for 7 years in a row now, we immediately said “yes” to the invitation from the association of computer science students at ETH to take part in the 2nd VIScon event that will take place on the 12th of October.

This year’s Symposium consists of 33 talks and 7 workshops with 500 expected participants from ETH as well as other technical universities.

Our Senior Developer, Sebastian Theophil, will give a talk called “Automatic Slide Layout” about an interactive, easy-to-use tool (think-cell) that could automatically perform most layout tasks. The talk will delve into the mathematical details, and it will include a live demonstration of the system.

C++ Russia Conference in Saint Petersburg
October 31st - November 1st, 2019

Having enjoyed meeting C++ developers last year in Saint Petersburg, and this year in Moscow, we are convinced to come to Saint Petersburg one more time for the “C++ Russia conference”.

Our CTO, Arno Schödl, will present his new talk “The C++ rvalue lifetime disaster” for the first time. In this talk, Arno will describe the problems in detail, present a library-only approach to mitigate the problems, and finally, make an impossible-to-ever-get-into-the-standard proposal of how to put things right.

As think-cell is also a Silver sponsor of the conference, you’ll easily find our green booth in the exhibition area, so come talk to our developers, ask questions about the talk, learn about opportunities within the team or just pick up some German candy. Can’t wait to meet you there!

C++ CoreHard Autumn 2019
November 30th, 2019

In late November, our CTO Arno Schödl will come to Minsk to take part in annual “C++ CoreHard conference”. There, he will present his new talk “The C++ rvalue lifetime disaster”. During the talk, Arno is planning a digestible version of “this paper” with the addition of - examples, particularly range-related - library-only macro trickery that we use in our code to mitigate the problem - a more exhaustive exploration of the design space, including some feedback that he received from German ISO committee members.

Don’t miss a chance to meet our CTO and ask all the questions you might have. See you in Minsk!

C++ Day in Parma, Italy
November 30th, 2019

The same day Arno takes part in the CoreHard conference in Minsk, our Senior Developer Valentin Ziegler will be flying to Parma for “C++ day”, which is organized by the Italian C++ community.

here he will give a talk “From Iterators To Ranges — The Upcoming Evolution Of the Standard Library”, on the design of think-cell’s range library. Valentin will cover the index concept (which is a more efficient but compatible replacement for iterators when range adaptors are nested), think-cell’s approach to transforming rvalue containers and generator ranges.

We are excited to meet members of the C++ Italy community and answer all the questions they have.

See you in Parma!

VIS Kontaktparty 2020
February 29th, 2020

It has become a cherished tradition to visit Zurich for the annual VIS Kontaktparty. In 2020, it will be our 8th time in a row participating, and we very much look forward to meeting the students, sharing our career opportunities and having a chat over a cup of freshly brewed coffee and some German candy.

Don’t miss your chance to visit our booth in Zone B to talk to our developers, HR manager and company CTO Arno Schödl. Looking forward to seeing you there!
