Job opening: Front end

For one project we are looking for a front-end developer:

  • medior/senior developer experienced with Vue.js, or, if you're comfortable in React for web and similar tech in such extent that you are confident you'll pick up Vue rather quickly.

If possible we prefer (near) full-time, and some experience with Google Firebase, browser extensions, and security.

You will be solely responsible for maintaining, improving and updating a browser extension and website. Other members in the team work on the API, UI/UX design, SEO and marketing, and mobile apps. You will not be doing only boring maintenance and bugfixing stuff: we're working on a new API implementation and a complete redesign of the UX and UI. You'll be working with a remote team (English speaking) and you are welcome to do so from our office in Utrecht or from home.

Job opening: Back end / Front end / Full-stack

We have several projects that require back-end work: existing projects that require both maintenance and major feature updates, but we're also working on new ones that you can design from scratch.

Python/Django/React full-stack developer

One of our most creative projects is a platform that we have launched with great success for several big artists and famous influencers, and it hit the top charts many times. It is an innovative and technically challenging combination of mobile apps, a CMS , and a live streaming component.

For this project we are looking for:

  • medior/senior dev experienced with Python/Django, React, and PostgreSQL;

This project uses many components of the Amazon cloud that we need you to be experienced with: S3, EC2 and RDB, as well as the Simple Email Service, Aurora, VPC... you name it.

Experience with Google Cloud Platform, Google Firebase, Kubernetes is an advantage, and because all our front-ends are React it would be awesome if you have some experience with that as well.

NodeJS/MongoDB backend developer

Imagine a social platform that helps users get in touch with likeminded people, handling thousands of location-based requests every second. Can you work with that? Then we are looking for you!

  • medior/senior backend dev experienced with NodeJS, Loopback, and MongoDB;

Experience with Google Cloud Platform, Google Firebase, Kubernetes is an advantage, and because all our front-ends are React it would be awesome if you have some experience with that as well.

Nice to have

Are you experienced with backend technology that is not in this list, but do you think you can still help us out? Feel free to reach out anyway!

Experience with the iOS/Android SDKs, SOLID principles of clean code, and for experience with multiple platforms (Android and iOS, or web development, etc). Knowledge of TensorFlow, Flutter, React Native is definitively a big bonus.
