One goal: to make our sustainable platform engineering the leading platform in the world

Sounds like a plan, right?

What is my challenge ?

Join a team of 4 experienced Frontend Developers and be a key part of the development of our new features. Have you heard of our freshly baked Cost Explorer feature yet?

  • Lead the entire web function and be responsible for effectively recruiting, mentoring, and retaining your great team
  • Lead an amazing team of 4 (and growing) frontend developers across Europe
  • Be responsible for project management as well as day-to-day execution, guide technical and architectural choices
  • Collaborate with the Design, Backend, and Ops teams to develop features

  • Working both autonomously and collaboratively
  • Take part in discussions having a team/company-wide impact
  • Ensure you give the team the means to remain highly collaborative and effective

We work in feature teams so, as you can imagine, you will closely collaborate with our Design, Backend, DevOps, QA, or Marketing teams in all projects you’re involved in.

What should I bring to the table?

We are looking for a talented and passionate Lead Frontend Developer to help us build our sustainable platform engineering. We value clean, DRY, easy-to-read code that is well tested and keeps up to date with modern standards.

You:

  • Are a Frontend developer with 8+ years of professional experience

  • Are an open-minded, knowledgeable, and friendly person
  • Know how to strike the right balance between autonomy and working collectively in a team

Essential:

  • At least 3 years of professional knowledge with Vue.js, or other JS frameworks (React, Angular, Ember, etc)
  • Good coding practices using modern CSS, HTML, and JS
  • Unit testing (we use Jest, but experience in others is useful)
  • Good knowledge of git and GitHub (code reviews, rebasing, cherry-picking, etc)
  • Capacity to communicate effectively, natively and clearly in English, both verbally and in writing
  • Experience leading a team of developers in a fast-growing environment

Nice to have:

  • Experience with Webpack, E2E testing (i.e. Cypress), and CI/CD tools
  • Experience working remotely
  • DevOps knowledge or interest
  • Have contributed to the open-source community
What we bring to the table

Working together should be a win-win situation for everyone involved. Here is what we bring to our side of the table :

  • A great autonomy
  • A collaborative environment where your opinion matters
