About the job

Our Amsterdam office is looking for a Front-end Engineer to solve juicy digital challenges at scale, share expertise with others, and work closely with Reaktor communities in Lisbon, Stockholm, Helsinki, NYC and Tokyo. We enjoy working on-site and spending time with our team, but want to offer you opportunity for remote work whenever you wish, support your home office set-up and provide a remote-friendly working environment. 

As a Front-end Engineer you: 

  • Write complex software from scratch with functional JavaScript/TypeScript utilizing the latest libraries
  • Take care of both the technical and human side of projects
  • Are familiar with React / Vue, automated testing & deployment
  • Dabble outside of the browser every now and then (e.g. setup simple CI pipelines)
  • Scribble a small humble piece of HTML sprinkled with JavaScript hosted on Netlify when it’s the simplest thing that gets the job done 😉

We would like to see 5+ years of experience in Front-end (or experience in all of the above). 

Salary range: €42000 – 70000 per year.

Ideally you…

  • Look forward to taking an active part in shaping your team’s ways of working and programming practices.
  • Enjoy working with juniors and seniors on the shiny and dirty bits of the codebase. Ivory Tower Architects need not apply.
  • View your colleagues and clients as individuals with their respective strengths and weaknesses.
  • Believe that sometimes tech is best solved with no code at all, but by talking to the right people.

P.S. If you are just starting your career path as a developer and have all the excitement, but not all the relevant experience for this job, there are still a lot of great opportunities open to you!
