Danaher Corporation Graphic Software Engineer (multiple locations) in Bonn, Germany
What do we do?
Have you ever wondered how the packaging of your favorite cookies is designed? What do all the barcodes on your delivery boxes, tickets etc. mean? Why barcodes on yoghurt cups are always horizontal? How come the red color of the famous soft-drink company is always the same, be it on paper, carton, plastics or a can? Why you can rarely find photographs on cans? What are the color boxes at the bottom of milk boxes or inside chocolate wraps for? Why the nutrition facts tables look all the same in some countries and very similar in others? How are the different language or flavor variants made?
These are just examples of the tasks our software is used for.
Who are we?
Esko is the worldwide market leader with software for packaging buyers, designers, and manufacturers and hardware products for the packaging, label, sign and display industries. With headquarters in Ghent - Belgium, Esko employs around 1,800 associates worldwide.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a C++ developer for our small R&D team in Prague.
What will you do?
The team develops plugins for Adobe Illustrator for Windows and macOS. The plugins are used by graphic designers, prepress operators, and packaging specialists worldwide to do the aforementioned tasks. The team also contributes to shared technologies used in other Esko applications.
The team uses agile development practices (scrum). The product owner states the problem, and the team brainstorms possible solutions and decides on the user interface with the help of the user interface engineer.
