Junior Frontend / Elm Developer // flyiin

September 13, 2017
Do you think booking flights online is just too messy? If you do, then we would like to have you on-board. With fresh and significant funding around the corner, we are now ready to build up our company and are looking for a Junior Frontend / Elm Developer in Berlin.


– Our sprint teams are organised as multi-disciplinary ‘crews’. Within your crew, you will team up with a UX Designer, a Visual/UI Designer, a Backend Developer and an Agile Coach with the goal to constantly improve the Elm codebase of our user-facing Single Page Application, based on a user-centric and sprint-based approach.

– You will build interactive prototypes and develop features in the different product areas (e.g. search, booking, payment etc.) for both our web-based and mobile-ready products. Because our product is our brand, you will play an essential role in making flyiin the champion brand for online flight search and booking.

– You will work closely with the Engineering team based in Budapest, which is responsible for developing the airline distribution system, which our marketplace product is based on. You will be actively involved in the definition of the interfaces and contracts that will be facing our backend systems.

– You are a team player. You will clearly present and communicate your vision, your work and its rationale to the members of your crew, and work closely with them in order to foster the sharing of ideas, learning and design principles within your crew.
