Full time

Let’s be frank Growing as a developer and person is a long road and opportunities for this can be sparse at a lot of companies. Frontend development can be repetitive and it’s easy to get stuck in a routine that squashes the creative expression that we ideally want to achieve with our code. Working with outdated projects, being stuck in pointless meetings, colleagues that don’t care about quality - all of these things can make our lives as developers miserable. While we cannot claim that we’ve found developer heaven, we can promise you that things at seedtrace are different. We don’t accept workarounds and quick fixes - we do it right from the start. We only have meetings when it’s really necessary and we strive to use the latest and best available to us. We’re still small but we’re on a path to significant growth. If you are the person that wants to grow with us, be directly involved in the decision making process, if you are ready to take on the responsibility of becoming a tech lead in the future - please read on! What we dream of In an ideal future, no product can be sold without complete documentation about its origin, without evidence that workers were paid fairly, without proof that the environment was not harmed. We believe that the economy itself has to be the main driver for this change since our politicians are not willing or able to take the appropriate measures. By making seedtrace the gold standard in supply chain transparency we want to push companies to be completely transparent about how their products were made - thereby enabling consumers to make more conscious buying decisions. Yes it’s old but we want to make the world a little better with our product and we really mean it. About this role As a frontend developer you will be working directly with our two tech co-founders as well as a junior developer and multiple freelancers. We want to grow by 10x over the next year so this role will include leadership responsibilities in the near future. You will be directly involved in our decision making processes and own the development of new features, driving them from initial idea to finished implementation by collaborating with our designer and backend team. What you’ll be doing

  • Implement new features into our various front end applications
  • Write clean, maintainable and testable code
  • Add your expertise in sprint and product planning meetings
  • Analyse, rethink and refactor the code to scale the application
  • Write and maintain our test suite
  • Learn every day, and share your knowledge with your co-workers
  • Participate in code reviews
What you should bring
  • 3+ years of working with modern Javascript frameworks like React
  • Deep knowledge of Javascript and it’s various quirks
  • A good eye for design and usability
  • CSS should be a second language to you (we use Styled Components)
  • Experience with GraphQL (Apollo Client) is a big plus
  • Experience in backend development (especially using Python) is a plus but not a requirement
What’s in it for you As we want to grow significantly we are looking for a person that not only wants to code but also lead other developers. We put a lot of emphasis on high code quality and test coverage so we have minimal technical debt and you would be spending most of your time developing new services and features instead of battling legacy spaghetti code. There are a lot of exciting projects coming up that will open the opportunity to try new technologies and implement your ideas. Some of our perks
  • Complete remote work possible
  • Employee share ownership plan
  • Opportunity to work with a truly committed and ambitious team
  • Regular remote team events
  • Regular company offsites
