ABOUT THE ROLE

You’ll be working on a large, sophisticated, single page application used by thousands of users to manage, create and edit their content in Contentful.

We target current evergreen browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, modern IE) to provide a highly interactive, smooth user-experience inside the browser, allowing users to perform complex tasks around content management.

Since most of our backend is implemented in JavaScript, we share a lot of code between client and server.

The frontend application does not only communicate with a REST API but has a real-time connection to the server and other users for collaboratively editing documents.

As a Frontend Developer (f/m), you will work on a complex, modular user interface where API design, application architecture and application state management are the main challenges. As a member of a cross-functional team, you’ll work side by side with backend and QA engineers. You’ll gain exposure to a wide range of technologies and approaches that are not limited to frontend development but will also give you a comprehensive grasp of the entire product.

  • Experience with unit and integration testing of browser-based Javascript
  • Knowledge of the server-side JavaScript ecosystem (Node.js)
  • A Computer Science background is considered a plus
  • Knowledge of functional programming principles is a plus
  • Excellent English communication skills, both verbally and written (German is not required)

BENEFITS

  • We offer an education budget and extra days off to be spent on your self-development
  • Pick any tools you feel comfortable with. From hardware to software, your work environment to your chair, we’ve literally got your back
