Frontend Developer – JavaScript


We’re looking for a passionate Frontend Dev to help grow our product.

Someone fluent with modern web development techniques. Someone who:

  • is experienced with JavaScript / ES6,
  • has grounded knowledge in general area of SPAs (we use mostly React but experience with any SPA will suffice),
  • is able to convince different browsers to render pages elegantly (including both desktop and mobile browsers),
  • is accustomed to producing high quality frontend code (together with good test coverage).

Experience with modern SPA build tooling would be a big plus.

We are not really concerned with your education or any other formalism. What we are concerned with is your passion, knowledge and experience.

This is not an entry-level opening. We do expect proven frontend development experience. We would consider both regular engineers (2-4 years of professional experience) as well as more senior-level engineers (usually 5+ years of professional experience).

Background

What we create here is basically top-notch e-commerce system. In short you can think of it as Amazon-like webstore. And we really mean it – as both for the scale and breadth of functions. Our customer is one of the largest retailing company in the world. This translates to world-wide reach and tens of thousands of users from day one.

We work mostly with JavaScript / React. We treat quality very seriously – unit / integration testing is no joke for us. The product itself is composed of multiple teams (every team is 4-6 people) each working on separate microservice or UI part. Teams are mostly self-managed (we basically do not hire any junior engineers – you will work only with experienced people).

We are based at our office in Cracow, Poland. We allow some sporadic remote work (e.g. 1 day/week; more after you become more experienced with the project) but the bulk of work is to be done in our office where the rest of the team works.

What to expect

As for our way of doing things we rely strongly on industry best practices and put crazy emphasis on code quality of our products. We are also putting lots of attention to performance, componentization and robustness.

From day one in our project:

  • we peer-review 100% code we do,
  • we use continuous integration and deployment,
  • we constantly test performance of the product to meet requirements,
  • we use tools for static code analysis,
  • we use and encourage contributing to open source projects.

If this sounds interesting to you, just get in touch and tell us about yourself.

What we expect

We don’t expect you to be an expert in everything but we do expect you to have a general understanding of most areas contributing to development of modern SPA together with a solid expertise in one or two of them. In short we are focused mainly on T-shape skilled individuals. Above all we expect you to be curious and be willing to learn.

Oh and in case you haven’t figured it out already – fluency in English language (also spoken!) is a must. We do work with foreign customers and we strongly believe that seamless communication is one of the most important things in software projects – so naturally at least intermediate level written/spoken English is required.

We expect someone who will bring a sense of unrivaled curiosity and an urge to solve real world problems. You’ll need a warm and fun attitude and a sense of exploration. Above all we value people who put heart into their work and would call themselves real craftsmen.
