What’s it all about?

Did you know that the printing industry is one of the biggest industry on the planet? Nevertheless, it faces a lot of challenges when it comes to collaboration and process digitisation. We are Crispy Mountain and we’re currently building a sophisticated software platform for this industry to solve this problem. Our vision is to create a place where all print related processes world-wide run on a centralised industry platform. From designers and publishers to printers and machines to trucks and logistics – it’s truly holistic.

All of this is backed by Heidelberg Druckmaschinen AG, the biggest print equipment manufacturer in the world, with more than 100 years of history. Heidelberg has recently acquired Crispy Mountain, in order to combine the excitement of a young and agile team with the knowledge and tradition of one of the oldest brands in print. Together we will tackle the incredibly exciting mission ahead.

What will you be doing?

We design and build the foundation services for this platform, as well as documentation and developer resources. Our responsibilities include process design, product design, UI/UX, implementation and operations as well as marketing and general strategy.

As a UX Designer it is your job to guide customers safely through the waters and bring them on board. You will design Wireframes, Mockups and User Interfaces and work closely with Matthias, our Head of UI/UX (and Managing Director btw) and Konstantin (Senior Designer), to deliver the best possible user experience to our customers.

What are the tools of choice?

We usually start on the (digital) whiteboard and iterate from there using paper, pencil, iPads and Sketch Artboards.

Our main objective is to build and ship clean and stable applications, that solve real-world problems for our users. We are using tools, libraries and technologies where and when it makes sense. We don’t use stuff just for the sake of using it. Productivity and reliability is key. We use tools that fit the task, and are not bound by ideologies.

For CI/CD and communication we use the usual suspects: CircleCI, Github, Basecamp, Slack, WhereBy and Monday.

How do we manage ourselves?

We highly believe in self-organized teams. Usually a team consists of 1 to 4 UX designers, developers and product managers. To get things done, we work in loosely defined sprints, with the ultimate goal to ship something in the end. This can be a feature, a product or just a part of it.

What we have to offer

✌️ Bullshit-free zone

Our challenge is a big one: we are tasked with building a platform that will change the face of an entire industry. Forever. We don’t solve Silicon Valley-style self-made, first-world problems – we want to fix actual software problems in the printing industry, freeing the people working there from stupid, repetitive, cognitive assembly line work and allow them to rediscover their creativity.

💰 Above-average salary

We pay above-average salaries that are linked to your experience and responsibility and grow with you. All based on a simple level-based salary model. Based on your seniority, we’re talking about 45 – 100K per year.

❤️ Family First

We’re trying hard to provide you with a healthy and family friendly environment. Results matter, not office hours. That’s why we encourage remote work and quality time that you can spend with your loved ones.

👩‍🚀 Freedom and Opportunities

You will enjoy a great deal of freedom in your work (which can also be a burden). Not gonna lie, we are a small team at this point, which will grow over time (again not explosively, but sustainably), so at first your job will be hands-on, while in the future it can shift more towards project lead and management (if this is your desire). Either way, your work will have an impact on our success!

How to apply

Apply below and tell us a bit about yourself and the work you’ve done so far. We also expect you to get familiar with our philosophy and tell us how you can enrich our team. Let us also know in which seniority level you are in (Junior, Associate, Senior or Lead).

Please give us some time to review your application, we’ll definitely come back to you as soon as possible. After our initial review, we might conduct a short phone interview to get to know you better. Following that, a personal meeting or online conference will be the next step, where we talk about code and product development.

We at Crispy Mountain highly value equality and diversity, thus strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply for this position.  The only constrain at this moment is, that we we need to focus on applicants that already live and work in Germany.

Now it’s your turn! We look forward hearing from you!
