  • Application Deadline: May 30, 2019
  • Stockholm

As a Frontend Engineer at Mentimeter, you will be an integral part of a front-end team creating great design and excellent user experience that will affect millions of people all over the world. You should be curious about how to build fast, intuitive and well-performing user interfaces with modern technologies in a team together with designers, UX and visual developers. Your responsibilities will include to research, design and implement new user-friendly features together with taking important architectural decisions that ensure performance and scalability of our platform and development environment.

Mentimeter mainly consists of a presentation view build in React/Redux together with D3.js to visualize voter data (delivered quickly via Websockets) in a fast, appealing and informative manner and an easy-to-use voting site built with server-side rendered React/Redux together with the CSS-in-JS framework Fela with components from our own design system. These components are maintained by our design team to ensure a consistent look-and-feel across our platform and are also used in our static content site that is based on Gatsby.js and delivered via CloudFront (with Lambda@Edge). Hosting is done on Heroku and AWS with Continuous Integration using Github and Circle CI.

We are in an exciting phase where the platform must evolve in order to ensure continued scalability of the platform and an edge compared to our competitors. You will be part of taking a decision on what architecture and technologies are best suited for our future challenges. We are, for example, currently rolling out our own Design System, improving our voting experience and preparing for creating smart phone based apps using React Native, migrating to a monorepo solution for our JavaScript code and implementing automated browser and visual regression tests.

We work in small, independent, self-organizing teams. The team’s product manager and engineering lead work together to organize and plan the team’s backlog with a Kanban/Scrum-mixed process, with focus on continuously delivering new features to our users

Responsibilities for the role:
