WE'RE LOOKING FOR VISUAL DESIGNER ALCHEMISTS!
At Critical TechWorks, we are revolutionizing the automotive industry with our cutting-edge software and technology solutions. We seek highly skilled and distinctive UI Designers to join our team of talented engineers, developers, and futurists.

We established in 2018 and exclusively support BMW in building software for its entire universe - from autonomous driving to the billing system BMW uses and everything in between.
Our mission is to change the future of motion. And the way we do it is by infusing our work and essence into BMW. Slowly but surely, we can impress ourselves into BMW - one of the industry's leading players - and thus effect change in the world. We like the work and value autonomy, making us a genuinely Agile workplace.
We organize ourselves into Scrum teams, and due to our flat hierarchy philosophy and self-directed management style, we are actively promoting an autonomous workplace experience. We focus on growth and self-development with an absolute commitment to quality.
