Frontend developer React

Job description

Intro

It's an exciting time for us at VIKTOR. After launching our platform in 2016 we are rapidly growing our user base, our team and our developer community. We are hyper-focused to make VIKTOR the low-code development platform for developers, engineers and scientists wanting to automate the boring work and enable them to build awesome products.


To further grow our team we are looking for a talented frontend developer. If you are passionate about building and shipping software that brings job satisfaction to our users and you love working with the latest technologies, then we're eager to get to know you.


What are you going to do

You will work as part of our platform development team to improve our web experience through our React frontend and build new features that will allow our users to automate their daily workflow and allow developers to build apps with your components. You will be working on improving existing features and adding new ones, from the conceptual phase all the way to implementation.


What a day could look like

A new sprint has started where you and your team will build a new feature on top of our API. Together with your team you discuss how to approach the feature requirements and you pair with a backend developer to get the right data. You will be spending most of your week on your feature-branch. Tomorrow you discuss with a colleague about a merge request they are working on to reduce request count and keep our interfaces fast. Later this week you attend a meeting with an enthusiastic sales engineer to brainstorm about a new UI component that could be a great power tool for a specific industry, together the two of you sketch the outlines and roughly draw up a business case and plan the execution.


We offer you

    • A flat organizational structure, in which taking responsibility and initiative is encouraged
    • A friendly international working environment where you can get the best out of yourself
    • Opportunity to evolve your role as the company continuous to grow
    • Developer friendly environment, CI/CD, integration and unit tested software
    • An office in the center of Rotterdam, a few minutes walking from Central Station
    • Possibility to work from home if that suits you, also after the pandemic
    • Online Friday afternoon drinks and bimonthly team activities
    • Flexible working hours, plenty of days off
    • Possibility to work part-time (32h)

      Requirements

      • You are an independent thinker, creative in finding the best solutions
      • You feel comfortable using and learning about technologies like TypeScript, WebSockets, WebGL and REST API's
      • You have at least two years of experience in building web applications using React (or similar such as Vue or modern Angular)
      • You have an academic level of working and thinking, you can reason through some level of abstraction
      • You can guarantee the technical feasibility of UI/UX decisions
      • You can separate the great from the overhyped in the land of frontend
      • You have a European nationality or you live in the Netherlands and you have a valid residence permit (VIKTOR is not a recognized sponsor).
