We help teams work smarter together, regardless of skillset, all the while ensuring governance and maintaining flexibility. We already contribute to numerous IT services across Europe. We help numerous IT departments in companies across Europe with their DevOps rollout and optimization.

We strongly believe in:

  • Open source - we contribute, develop, and release open source technologies

  • Collaborate with the Design, Backend and Ops teams to develop features
  • Contribute to unit/E2E testing, bug fixing, documentation etc
  • Review pull requests, submitted by colleagues

  • Being a part of discussions that have a team/company wide impact

Skills

We are looking for a talented and passionate Lead Frontend Developer to help us build our Framework.

You:
