About the Role
Our engineering teams architect, develop and test our products. As a Frontend Developer, your mission is to build awesome user interfaces.

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 Agile methodologies 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 at the unit, integration, and acceptance levels to assure quality and longevity of our products and a sustainable pace for future changes.

As part of the greater engineering organization, you will expand and improve our Pattern Library of UI components towards consistency and reusability. You will take part in cross-team initiatives: architectural changes, refactoring, establishment of best practices.

What we are looking for:
  • good 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 JavaScript knowledge is way more important
  • an interest in automated testing, be it unit-, functional- and/or acceptance testing
  • a strong desire to learn engineering discipline and rigor

What we value:
  • Bettering 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
