Become an interfacewerker!
From start-ups to mechanical engineering companies — it's clear to everyone today: digitization is essential to be at the forefront. And for digitization, innovative solutions are needed. From the energy-saving app to the milling machine - everyone has to distinguish themselves by their technological, visual and user experience. A lack of know-how or time makes it difficult for many companies to be competitive and stay ahead. That's where interfacewerk comes in.
With a high level of technical understanding and good communication, we enable our clients to become or remain internationally leading in terms of both technology and user experience. Whenever it comes to UX design, software architecture or software development with web technologies, our unique engineering teams are on hand to help realize profitable and future-oriented products.

- We don't force anyone to sit in unproductive meetings all day. We value short, well-prepared meetings with few participants.
Workday of a Developer at interfacewerk
After you have got yourself a strengthening butter pretzel at the Münchner Freiheit, you come to the sunny office at around 9. There are no time limits. Of course you can also get a tasty coffee. The day always begins with a short slack-good-morning round. If you work remotely, you can see in Slack who will be working on what today and also share your plans for the day there.
First check the ticket system for project Sigma HMI: Development of the front end for the latest milling machine of a well-known manufacturer of precision tools. For the morning you will have 2 tickets: "Create custom form control" and "Add navigation bar".
And that's Tea Time. Over a cup of freshly brewed tea with fruit salad and cookies you talk about your ideas for the Mario Kart/Kicker championship and make some suggestions for the Team Lunch on Friday. As we at Tea Time always write a short message in Slack, you will always be reminded to take a little break.
Until lunch break, you have focus time with your team mates. Everyone who works with you on Project Sigma HMI is now present and not involved in other projects. You do a short pair coding session with your colleague Anna, then you work individually and focused again.
You're spoilt for choice for lunch. Today you will have a burrito from the Condesa, which you will enjoy during your lunch break in the Team Zone. Our remote team members are usually a bit jealous of it, although there is also great food near the Paris coworking space.
After a lunch together in the Team Zone you decide for a small walk. Spontaneously, a few colleagues will join you to bring exercise and fresh air into everyday life. Even if you're working from home from the co-working space, we recommend a little exercise.
At 13:15 you are in call with an engineer of our client for the project of a Munich Tech Startup: Angular Transformation. For the feature “display job dashboard”, which you want to implement in the afternoon, you get some input. After a 20-minute conversation, you'll understand all the requirements and feel confident. You can already start with the implementation.
You briefly discuss the result with your project manager Matthias (3 minutes) and then get to work. The afternoon is calm and you can work focused.
To get some variety and to vary your position, you change to a bar table for one hour. Yesterday you tried a balance stool, today it's the bar table. If you come to one of our team events as a remote team member, you can try it out.
You play a game of kicker with your colleagues. Today Kevin - our Kicker Champion - just arrived from Paris, so unfortunately you lose. And if you're not in the game, you'll know that Kevin has won again.
You create the first version of the new feature “display job dashboard” shortly before closing time and get some feedback from the designer Anna if your implementation is as planned. This only takes 5 minutes. Anna still has a few suggestions for improvement, which you can make for the next day.
