  • Experience in Webpack, React and React Router
  • BS/BA level of thinking and cooperation
  • Deep understanding of JavaScript
  • 4+ years of work experience in the field of (frontend) software engineering
  • Teach others and drive adoption of technology improvements. Good leadership and communication skills.
  • Strong preference for candidates with a background/ experience with Advertising Technology
  • A can-do attitude (sarcasm is allowed) and drive to solve problems for our partners and customers

Nice to have:

  • Experience with React Snapshot, integration and unit testing
  • Experience with Storybook

Additional Information

  • Opportunity to shape the way we work. Your feedback and opinions are valued at all levels of the organisation
  • Benefits including stock purchase plan and annual bonus plans

  • Smart Working Policy - work remotely some of the time, balanced with time in the office together with your team
  • ‘Work from anywhere’ weeks - up to four weeks working from anywhere, including from another country, as long as you have an internet connection!
  • Career development, including individual training budget and language classes
  • 26 days of holidays
