About the team
We're looking for a Frontend Developer to join the ride in empowering our creators. Our focus now is on building products to easily create engaging content ready to be shared, staying true to our mission ‘Create Once. Share Everywhere’’. Some examples include: enhancing original uploaded content with links and videos for a more interactive reading experience and, building a new editor that enables easy creation of content for social media platforms. A clean user experience in our product is always top of mind.

We are the right company for you, if you

    • consider yourself one of the best at what you do and you're looking for equally talented colleagues,
    • are self-driven and would never just want to take the next ticket,
    • are curious and never stopped learning and exploring new languages, technologies and solutions,
    • seek a culture where all voices matter when it comes to shaping the future of the product,
    • want to work with colleagues who have a ‘here to help’ attitude, and absolutely want to help you succeed.

What you bring with you

    • an enthusiasm for creating the best possible experience for the end user,
    • a passion for frontend engineering based on a modern stack (e.g. TypeScript, React/Redux, Sass, Design Systems),
    • the ability to build and integrate with node.js backends,
    • knowledge of all the CSS quirks and the newest additions, like grids,
    • excellent communications skills in English.

    • our architecture is microservice-oriented using AMQP,
    • we deploy multiple times a day on AWS and use Docker Swarm/Kubernetes, MySQL/Postgres, Redis, Elastic Search, etc.,
    • we strive to be agile (who doesn’t?), but we're not religious about Scrum, Kanban or any other methodology,
    • we have many cross team guilds where we share knowledge, coordinate efforts, and help each other the best we can,
    • “20% time”-  everyone gets one day a week to invest as they see fit (i.e. learn something new, experiment with new ideas in the product, join efforts with others, improve what you think matters).

The impact you will have on our customers

    • Contributing to the growth of a mature- and steadily growing company.
    • Delivering results that create value for the end users, while we ensure a high-performance, high-availability, robust product that scales with our traffic (10.000++ requests/second ) and data-heavy platforms (100++ terabytes).
    • create new things they could not have done before
    • share those creations with more people than they could have reached before
