Visual Front-end Developer — We're a fast-growing startup looking for that rare breed of developer that loves code as much as the visual experience in front of it.
The task at hand is bold: creating a brand new Conferize. We're rethinking how and why people meet. We’re building a ground-breaking product that will put event design from an outdated, over-specialized industry into the hands of today’s passionate creatives that know how to bring their crowd together.
With us there is no heavy management structure, but loads of experience and vision. We don’t do anything because we have to; we do it because it makes sense. At Conferize, everything is about creating a great product.
We are currently transitioning to a new isomorphic front-end experience based upon React and Apollo with a Ruby on Rails backend which provides our GraphQL API.
What's your role?
We need you to help us turn what we do into a great experience. That used to be something that design orchestrated, but now all the visual magic happens in code. You'll join our engineering team, working closely with a design team ready to assist you in creating the best possible native front-end experience.
— You love code, but use it as the engine behind a great user experience.
— You're on fire when companies like Google and Apple announces cool new UX concepts and other thingamajigs.
— You see and understand the mechanisms and the hidden details which make a digital product unique.
— You've been part of a product-driven organisation and have years of hands-on experience creating professional digital products.
We’re obviously hunting for someone who understands why creating digital products is the best drug in the world.
What we offer
— To be the brain behind our cutting-edge product and user experience.
— To be part of an adventure. With a great team of highly motivated and engaged individuals, who are also great team players.
— An opportunity to work with the latest technologies on the next iteration of Conferize being rebuilt from the ground up.
— Real participation and team work. You are not getting a list of stuff to do; you are part of the process of both deciding and doing.
— Competitive salary/equity.
— Flexible vacation policy - take time off as you need it.
— At least 1 year of React or similar experience.
— Proficient understanding of CSS.
— Understand and able to implement smooth browser-based animations at 60FPS.
— You care about writing semantic well formed code and paying attention to standards and good practices.
— Proficient understanding of Git.
— The position is full-time at our Copenhagen office.
Conferize is located at Sølvgade next to Kongens Have (The Kings Garden) in central Copenhagen. Our mission is to get people together because that's where magic happens. We have flexible work hours and everything you need to thrive. In addition to the Copenhagen team we also have some exceptional people around Europe that we fly in regularly.
