Krieger is growing faster than ever and we’re looking for new people to join our team. This job opening involves building pixel-perfect front-end software (graphical user interfaces for Android, iOS, Web or a combination or those); working side-by-side with designers, back-end developers, clients and managers; getting involved in huge projects with tangible impact; creating and prototyping concepts; and develop cutting-edge creative technological products.

We‘re looking for autodidacts, user-experience enthusiasts, innovators and perfectionists that can make the impossible happen.
