Senior front end developer (React)

Job description

We want to make it clear - here at bloomon we are a little rebellious. And a lot disruptive. The new guys taking on the traditional players. While turning our industry on its head.

Therefore, you are a person who is all about stepping out of your comfort zone and performing tasks that are necessary for the success of our great product. 

You’ll probably ask yourself now – how is technology related to the flower industry or to bloomon and how can I be disrupting anything as a front end developer in a flower-delivery-company.

Well, we are glad you asked!

You would be surprised to hear that anything in our product is based on tech and data. Behind every bunch of flowers there are tons of algorithms, lines of codes, and you may even come across a bug or two.

How do we work?

Our working methodology is as disruptive as our stack and infrastructure. We just implemented the Squad model, founded by Spotify, where you work in a small, autonomous  multi-disciplinary team. In addition, we use tools such as Slack, Jira, Github, and Trello to communicate efficiently and asynchronously -- this allows us to work with anyone, anywhere.We work from hubs spread out between Europe and Asia. And it works great! 

After setting priorities, tasks enter a kanban (much like a living sprint), where developers set their own ETA which they themselves can monitor using time tracking. This way all our developers know exactly what to do, when and how. Next to that, this approach allows us to hire amazing developers from around the world, without having to compromise based on their location. 

Still not convinced? Apply and let us show you!


What do we expect from you?

  • 6 months experience with React.js and redux; or very experienced with a high-level Javascript framework such as Vue.js, Angular.js, or Ember.js
  • 2+ years Javascript (ES6), webpack, and Node.js
  • Great understanding on how to structure maintainable large-scale frontend applications; e.g. how to separate concerns (business logic vs UI vs state)
  • Unit testing, integration, and end-to-end testing

Bonus (not necessary)

  • Nightwatch.js or Selenium
  • React sagas
  • Grid layouts based on e.g. react-flexbox-grid or Bootstrap
  • Material UI

What will YOU do?

Together with your front end guild you will be working on building user facing features, interface, APIs and core functions. Building reusable code and libraries for future use is critical here. You will ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs and will be testing across multiple browsers, platforms. Based on the squad you will be part of you could be working on various projects, which could change per quarter. Think of developing a platform where purchasers plan and communicate with suppliers or creating our very own bloomon UI library (e.g. with storybook) to be used throughout the company by developers and UX designers or maybe storing front end input on-the-fly in a persistence layer...
