About the job:

Frontend Development here at Moonshiner is structured in independent teams. Currently there are 14 frontend developer employed that work on projects with various levels of complexity. There are smaller projects developed by a single person and there are projects where 50+ developers work with well defined processes on big systems. You will take an important part with other senior developers in making architectural decisions for all teams, being responsible for the smooth development in an existing team and being the person that shows the customers development teams how they can improve and deliver better quality.

Teams usually follow a lifecycle:

  • In the beginning of the project the team is already participating in requirements engineering and concept.
  • You work closely with UX/UI because the best designs are made when designers and developers work closely together. The efforts are estimated together with business development and tasks that need to be done and defined.
  • Estimations about the roadmap and structure are added to the tasks and depending on complexity distributed within the team.
  • The execution and mode of operation can differ per team because we give freedom in the structure. Daily standups, do jira based tracking, intense work sessions, communication frequency - the team decides how it wants to operate. We give each team the tools, best practices and know how to execute with quality.
  • The project is finished and the improvement possibilities are shared with everybody.

The Technology you will be working with:

  • You will work on Javascript with the React Frontend Framework. We assume you are highly experienced in the whole ecosystem and know what you are doing.
  • You think about processes, architectures and what we can do to deliver high end software.
  • Work with stakeholders on frontend decisions and requirements. You tell them what to do on a technical level and consult their teams to make the right choices.

During the projects you will be faced with challenges, so it is important that you ask for help when needed, communicate your opinions and fears actively and be fair to your colleagues. We don't expect you to understand everything we do right away, nobody can transition with performing on the spot.

You will work on bugs caused by other people. You will find simple solutions for complex problems. You will go deep. You will learn from us and we will learn from you.

Here are some things we’ve worked on recently that might give you a better sense of what you’ll be doing day to day:

  • The navigation component is very slow and the reasons are non trivial. You take a look at it and decide on a way to address the issue, delegate parts to colleagues and debug the performance in a quality that can be reused for management communication. After knowing the reason, you will work on strategies to avoid such errors in the future. You communicate to stakeholders and you share best practices from the case.
  • The Authentication Workflow needs to be defined and you build a technical concept with the Backend team on how the process will look like in the future.
  • There is commitment on project delivery milestones and dates. You make sure that everybody in your team knows what he/she is doing. The requirements are clear and you communicate relevant changes in plan to the stakeholders early and clearly.

About you

You are highly experienced in ReactJS and have already worked in positions where stakeholder management, requirements engineering and project or team leadership was part of your job.

  • You are a role model when it comes to quality code.
  • You can communicate your thoughts, concepts and strategies clearly.

The development process is important. You drive the importance of solid Git structures, moderate and participate in pull request discussions. You know that you are not always the smartest developer in the room and can listen to people that have a different amount of knowledge than you do.

Communication is important to us, so it should be to you too. You should value empathy and kindness and be able to articulate your ideas and feelings when writing or speaking.
