Become our next

Senior Front-end Developer

open until 31.3.2021
What we are looking for

A quality-driven front-end developer

We are looking for a quality-driven front-end developer with solid skills in JavaScript. This person has experience in building web applications using Vue or React framework and preferably also Nuxt or Next.

This person is quality-driven and get's a real kick out of developing pixel-perfect front-ends with clean code. This person truly wants (and knows how) to work in a team.

What you are looking for

A small team doing big things

You are looking for a small, but capable team that does big things. You want to work with talented people that treat each other with respect and are excited to find new ways of being on top of their game.

You want to be able to focus on what you love (front-end development), but have the possibility to extend into other areas as well.

What we could do together

Build beautiful user interfaces with a modern stack

Together we build exceptionally beautiful and easy-to-use interfaces with modern JavaScript frameworks. If a CMS is needed, the data is fetched via modern APIs.

We do less, but better. We put strong focus in learning new things, which is backed up by a personal training budget.

Get to know us better

Tying the knot can be scary, so let us tell you a bit more about us.

I've been working on product archive filtering. I've worked on the back-end to build new data endpoints and redoing the front-end with React for a smoother experience for both the end users and the devs.

Most of my time is dedicated to one client. Quality is preferred over quantity, which allows me to carefully consider the best approaches. (pauses) Wow. I was not aware I am able to produce such sales jargon.

Lately I’ve been working on this very page, which is built with Next.js coupled with Contentful. I’ve also been working with our fresh CI pipeline in Bitbucket. At the moment about 40 percent of my time is dedicated to client work and the rest is for internal development.

The Application Process

Our recruitment process consists of the following steps:

Application period. Deadline is Wednesday 31.3, but we'd like to hear from you rather sooner than later.

Initial screening. We’ll go through all the applications weekly. After reading through the applications, we respond to all the applicants individually, so it might take a little while before we get to your application, but we will. 

Interviews. Our interview process includes two rounds. The first round will be devoted into getting to know each other. The second round is more technical. You will also be meeting the team in one of the interviews.

Coding assessment. We will ask you to take part in a small coding assessment, which focuses on general problem solving skills. The assessment is time-limited and won't take more than 1.5 hours of your time.

Talk about the specs. We clarify our mutual expectations of our common future. Naturally, necessities like compensation and equipment will be taken care of in a manner that satisfies us both.
