    Who We are looking for


    We are looking for a senior frontend engineer/consultant to work on projects for our consulting clients. We expect experience with JavaScript frameworks and related technologies as well as the web platform in general. While you’ll be working with Svelte and SvelteKit, we don’t necessarily expect previous experience with the framework but an interest and willingness to work with it. We appreciate writing maintainable, tested code and are looking forward to your application if you share this appreciation with us.

    The ideal candidate will have experience working closely with product managers and designers and has made decisions that have directly improved a product for its users. We are looking for a candidate who can take a leading role in steering a project towards a successful release.

    Responsibilities

    You will lead a distributed team of developers, driving efforts to effectively define scope and prioritize work.
    You will help clients with their projects as well as support our open source projects.
    You’re sensitive to clients’ needs and you’re creating trusting work relationships by reviewing code or discussing implementation options in a collaborative fashion.
    You share your learnings made on client and open-source projects with the community through blog posts and internal presentations.
    We’re committed to our participation in the open source community and give talks, attend conferences, host meetups etc. If you enjoy doing that as well, we’ll make sure to support you in any related engagements.


    Skills

    Must-Have

    Working experience with JavaScript frameworks, either in commercial projects or open source.
    Ability to balance customer-facing product development with long-term technical improvements.
    Overlap with the CET/CEST timezone and strong English communication skills.


    Bonus

    Experience leading a team in a fully remote environment.
    Svelte and SvelteKit development experience appreciated.
    Previous experienced working with different kinds of companies from startups to scaleups and enterprises is a plus.
    Experience with consulting work arrangements is a plus.
    Experience writing blog posts and giving talks is a plus.

    How we work


    We’re a team of open-minded developers who value collaboration, empathetic working relationships and well-crafted code. Beyond a supportive team culture and a relaxed work atmosphere, we enable you to take part in modern projects for international clients ranging from small startups to big enterprises. We work closely with our clients and expect direct communication across the entire project team.

    We also offer the opportunity to travel internationally – either to visit clients on-site for a limited time or to attend tech conferences (If you enjoy speaking or you’re interested to learning that skill, that’s awesome! We’ll support you in finding mentoring support either through one of our experienced team members or any other external support that you find useful).

    Apart from working on client projects we also maintain a bunch of open source libraries and tools on which you’re invited to work on as well. We reserve 1 day of the week for such work or work on writing blog posts, recording videos or preparing conference talks.
