Full-Time
Shaper is developing a revolutionary line of computer-augmented power tools, starting with a handheld CNC router called Origin. We’re looking for a skilled full stack developer with strong  front-end experience to join our web team to develop, maintain and launch our marketing and e-commerce sites at shapertools.com

Shaper has recently expanded into Europe and with this we are looking to grow our shapertools.com marketing site and ensure we are best placed to serve an international audience. We are rebuilding our current site using the latest technologies including React, Redux, Node.js and a headless CMS and are looking for a talented developer to join us.

As a web developer focusing on the marketing site, you’ll be the primary owner of the associated code bases and be expected to work with our design and marketing teams to grow the site’s content and capabilities as required. 

Shaper uses a variety of technologies and as part of your role you would be expected to continue to update our technology stack and move from our legacy code (Pug templates, HTML, CSS, Shopify) to our current tech stack (React, Redux, Styled Components). 

In addition to building static web content you will be expected to work on new interactive content and user flows that better connect us with our customers. You should have a passion for creating experiences that delight users and have a good eye towards creating pixel perfect experiences. 

This position is based in Stuttgart, Germany with our Shaper Tools GmbH team but you will be expected to report and work closely with the web team located in San Francisco, USA. Given this you should be comfortable working with a remote team and be able to work independently and be self directed where necessary. With Shaper HQ based in San Francisco, you must be able to effectively communicate in English in both verbal and written form. 

If you’re passionate about creating memorable web experiences and want to work with an interdisciplinary team to build the future of making then we want you to join our team as a Full Stack developer.
