Interested in tackling challenges across different business domains while utilizing the latest front-end technologies?

Curious to find out what working in a managerless environment feels like?

Good, keep on reading!

About Reaktor

Working in teams and helping clients is our bread and butter. Reaktor’s cross functional teams consist of Front-end Engineers, Backend / DevOps & SRE specialists, Designers, Data Scientists, and Coaches. We unite our efforts to help future-thinking companies like adidas, Lego, HBO, Finavia, and FC Liverpool succeed in their world-scale digital endeavours everyday.

About the job

Our Lisbon office is looking for a Senior Front-end Engineer to solve juicy digital challenges at scale, share expertise with others, and work closely with Reaktor communities in Amsterdam, 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 Senior 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).

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.
  • Live in Lisbon or within a comfortable commute range to be able to work from our beautiful office every now and then.

Benefits

We offer everything you’d expect of an international tech company: interesting projects, competitive salary and an opportunity to go on work stays to Reaktor offices around the globe. But what really makes us different is our Nordic culture — expect great attention to the work-life balance with a possibility to work flexible hours; high levels of trust and autonomy; and a friendly team of interesting personalities willing to connect beyond work.

Here are our benefits in detail:

  • Flexible working hours
  • Work trips between EU offices
  • Team activities and get-togethers
  • Compensation of self-development activities (courses, conferences, certifications, etc.)
  • Get paid to do Open Source work
  • Company shares
  • The latest computer and phone of your choice
  • Extended health insurance 
  • Screens, keyboard, headphones
  • An ergonomic home office if needed
  • Healthy and not-so-healthy snacks and drinks at the office
  • Travel expenses 
  • Phone subscription
  • Home internet expenses coverage
  • Company trips twice a year (when the pandemic situation permits)
