Senior Front-end Developer

Amsterdam (The Netherlands) or London (UK)

TL;DR


We are looking for a Senior Javascript Developer to own the front-end of our Talent Platform, supporting the Product team and working closely with the backend developers. We use React, Redux and Redux-Saga, and our backend API uses Python and Django.

Your Challenge is to own the front-end architecture and lead the development of Jump.Work's Talent Platform

You are a great fit if you:

  • master the ins and outs of modern Javascript. Preferably React (which you'll use here), but other frameworks (such as Angular) are also fine.
  • have 5+ years experience as a front-end engineer, developing web applications, preferably using JS frameworks such as React or Angular
  • take ownership of your projects and see them through completion
  • are passionate about creating efficient, intuitive user interfaces
  • care about building quality into your work, by writing clear and simple code, tests and effective documentation
  • prefer to focus on the ultimate goal of what you're developing, not getting distracted by perfectionism or vanity metrics
  • question assumptions, including your own, and iterate quickly to get early user feedback
  • are a good communicator

In a nutshell...

This is a fantastic opportunity to take full ownership of building and developing our front-end architecture, and Jump.Work's Talent Platform. If you’re passionate about front-end architecture this could be a unique opportunity to take over a platform that is constantly evolving and growing rapidly.

If management is in your career plans, there is also an opportunity to grow and head the team in the future.

How to apply

If this sounds like an opportunity you would be interested in, we would love to hear from you. Apply on our website by the 13th January 2019.


Why join Jump?

We have just closed a successful late-seed round and are expanding our tech team! This is a super exciting time to join, as it’s still early enough that you'll help us shape the foundations of the platform and tackle some very interesting problems, yet we’ve already got enough usage, traction and data that you'll have a real, immediate effect on people's lives.

We are building an attractive and intuitive platform, based on unique behavioural data, machine learning, and of course efficient product development. User behaviour and test results, as well as feedback from our own internal operations team, are used as inputs to custom matching algorithms and layered Deep Learning networks, to extract insights and find patterns that humans would otherwise not detect (at least not at scale).

We have big, ambitious plans for the future. A key path to delivering our goals is building a team that can support our rapid growth plans. It is an exciting time to join Jump as we enter the new year, we are launching our rebrand, taking on many new, large clients and doubling our team. We are searching for a talented and motivated Front End Developer who can take ownership of our front-end architecture and development of Jump.Work's Talent Platform to boost Jump to the next level!

If you want to be a part of a big, ambitious story, Jump.Work is an amazing business to work in with a super exciting and executable vision - you’ll work with a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary team. As we grow, the expectation is that you will too. All doors are open, from diving deeper into a technical speciality, to moving sideways into another area, to mentorship and leadership roles - in the end, it's down to you, your goals and your performance.
