About the Role
Our engineering teams architect, develop, and test our products. As a Senior Frontend Developer, your mission is to build awesome user interfaces for our platform which serves millions of views monthly. At InterNations you will contribute to connecting global minds and making expat life a great experience.

As a member of an international, cross-functional Product Experience Team (PXT), you will architect, implement, and test new functionality and maintain existing functionality using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Our PXTs organize themselves using SCRUM and you will work closely with your Product Manager and your team on the feasibility of concepts and upcoming changes. You will write automated tests, from unit to acceptance tests, to assure the quality and longevity of our products and a sustainable pace for future changes.

As part of the greater Engineering Department, you will expand and improve our Pattern Library of UI components towards consistency and reusability. You will lead and take part in cross-team initiatives: architectural changes, refactoring, and establishment of best practices. You will be mentoring less experienced colleagues and support their growth.

What we are looking for:
  • expert-level knowledge of JavaScript and familiarity beyond ES5 (e.g. ES6, TypeScript, Flow)
  • a passion for UI consistency
  • experience in JavaScript frameworks, especially React and Backbone is a plus but in-depth JavaScript knowledge is much more important
  • a minimum of 5 years of relevant experience as a frontend developer
  • experience with automated testing, be it unit, functional and/or acceptance testing

What we value:
  • developing our skills, teaching each other, and learning ways to build better software
  • user testing, experimentation, automated testing, and continuous integration to gain meaningful feedback for what we do
  • strong display of engineering discipline and rigor
  • fostering collaboration

Technologies we use: React, Backbone, Twig, Jest, Karma, React Native, Webpack, Flow, Less

Sounds interesting? Then start the conversation by telling us about past projects you contributed to and are proud of. We also like to hear about what kind of work environment you thrive in and what technologies you find interesting right now.
