Career events

Meet us at one of our upcoming 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.

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.

IKOM at TU Munich, Germany
June 25, 2024

We are happy to share our participation in the IKOM Career Forum on June 25 this year at the Technical University of Munich (TUM)! We are no strangers to TUM, as we have been there previously with our EAT++ lecture and at Summer Parties, but this will be think-cell’s first time at the IKOM Fair.

TUM has again been named a University of Excellence and is thus the only technical university in Germany to continuously retain this status since 2006. Their Department of Computer Science in the School of Computation, Information and Technology is one of the largest teaching and research institutions for Informatics in the country.

Our own team, with HR team members and Software Developers, will be present with a booth at IKOM to discuss with the participants the exciting career opportunities available at think-cell, including our C++ Developer position and C++ Internship with an option to write your academic thesis with us.

Make sure to stop by to network with C++ experts and learn more about the benefits think-cell offers, such as our competitive salaries, flexible working hours, relocation assistance, and the chance to collaborate with an international team of brilliant minds.

We will be also organizing a raffle with an array of useful branded gifts and snacks so no one will leave think-cell’s booth empty-handed.

We are looking forward to meeting you on June 25, 2024!
