A cross-over between Alan Turing and Bob Ross
Front-End Developer

Arguably the most important part of any digital experience is what the user actually sees: the front-end. It’s what you create. Doing this well is not just a matter of having great programming skills. You also need to have a keen eye for aesthetics, composition and motion concepts. You have to be skilled, smart and creative at the same time. Like a cross-over between Alan Turing and Bob Ross.

Our development team is an integral part of a much bigger creative team. Working directly with graphic and motion designers, UX specialists, creatives and projects managers we have technology and creativity go hand in hand to achieve greatness. Some standard buzzwords for this role would be: hands-on, team player, communication skills and client facing. Which basically means that, next to the actual front end work, we also expect you to collaborate seamlessly with the team and present your work to clients.

Every project is unique. But really. Our experiences, campaigns and services are generally very visual but often also feature an elaborate architecture and business logic. With your team you’ll be working on polished web experiences, WebGL shaders, games and mobile solutions (a.o.) for brands like Polestar, Philips, Lotus, Red Bull, Under Armour, Ahold Delhaize.

Also (we might be biased on this) we have a very unbiased culture. We’re a diverse group of people with very little ego but a shared drive to create great things. Our Executive Technology Director Erik Rave puts a lot of emphasis on the atmosphere in the team, making sure that everyone can grow and do their very best work in an environment that is safe and open.

What you’ll do

  • Work in an interdisciplinary team to build awesome software for the web, whether it is a short local campaign, a large-scale global product or anything in between

  • Collaborate with designers to achieve the most impressive design with a technically sound approach

  • Turn motion concepts into tangible products

  • Communicate your technical approach with your peers and clients

  • Convert business requirements to logical and sustainable code

  • Contribute to our internal packages and toolsets

You’ll work for industry leading brands like Polestar, Philips, Lotus, T-Mobile and Ahold Delhaize. The industry defining work you’ll make will be seen, touched, used and shared by millions of people. The work we create is awarded and recognized internationally.

Contribution to a YourCampus subscription, Healthy lunch, Bi-weekly massages at the office (don’t worry, there’s also a secret drawer filled with cookies and candy), Long term remote work options, Travel allowance, Fifa tournaments, ping pong challenges, beer, wine, tea, coffee, fruit, snacks and darts.
