Christian Weisenburger | Software Design

As a software designer, Christian works in our future workshop and accompanies new products from the first idea to the release. For this purpose, he analyzes requirements and creates technical concepts. Even before starting his career, he had already been a permanent member of our team for some time: During his OnlineMedia studies at Furtwangen University, he supported us as a working student and as part of his Bachelor’s thesis. This gave him a perfect start to his professional life.

Q&A with Christian

What is your job/position and what are your day-to-day tasks?

As a software designer, I work in Loy & Hutz’s future workshop and am allowed to accompany new products from the idea to the first prototype to the release on a daily basis. I am the interface between requirements management and development.

Which tools do you mainly use for your work?

The analysis of requirements, technical conception and project management are parts of my work. As a software designer, my work goes far beyond the actual design of user interfaces. For this, my daily tools like the prototyping software UXPin, the development environment Rider, the flowchart software, the MS Office 365 products and of course waveware® QPRO are essential.

What challenges drive you the most?

As a software designer, I am driven to continually elevate the user experience for our end users to the next level. Combining existing concepts of waveware® software solutions with new innovative ideas to extend the waveware® platform and the individual application clients is particularly exciting.

Where can you best contribute your strengths?

Due to my recent studies and as a relatively young team member, it is easy for me to constantly question existing concepts and processes in order to rethink and improve them. I studied Online Media (B. Sc.) at Furtwangen University and became aware of Loy & Hutz through a former working student. Already as a working student I was able to get to know the company as well as the software waveware® in detail. Thanks to the good practical support for my thesis in cooperation with the university, I had a perfect start to my professional life at Loy & Hutz.

What do you like most about your job?

What I like most is the opportunity to contribute my own ideas and concepts and then actively support them in their implementation. I particularly appreciate the cooperation with my colleagues, who support me with their many years of experience.

What are you most passionate about outside of work?

In my free time, I enjoy the benefits of living in Freiburg – whether it’s with friends at the river Dreisam, in the city park Seepark or in a café. Whenever I’m not in Freiburg, I’m exploring new countries and cultures. Our company benefit Hansefit allows me to keep fit in the gym or to take a break from everyday life in the thermal baths. Last but not least, I am involved as a board member in an association that helps young people. In this context, diversity is very important to me in order to break down prejudices and achieve equal treatment for all people.
