Overview




We are looking for a Senior Front End / React Engineer to join our team. Are you passionate about Javascript SPAs, efficient client-side performance using the latest frameworks and building software for millions of users? Do you want to use the node in the backend?

Whitespectre is a technology consultancy that develops high-performing platforms and applications for our client partners.  We work with both high-growth start-ups and large established companies looking to launch new products. Founded in 2015, we’re a team of 70 smart and diverse architects, engineers, product managers, and designers from across the globe, working together remotely- and we’re growing fast!

 

What will you do

  • Building complex Javascript (mainly ES6, web pack, React) presentation layers to consume RESTful APIs in a performant way.
  • Building out mobile apps using React Native
  • Collaborating with backend engineers in designing, specifying, and implementing services to decouple functionality
  • Occasionally going full stack and, depending on the project, either diving in the Rails services to add a new endpoint or modify behavior (and we can help you learn here too) or working on node backend services
  • Identifying bottlenecks, using tools to diagnose and refactor code for scale
  • Ensuring the robustness, performance, and failure characteristics of the system.
  • Writing well tested, defect-free code with CI/CD
  • Taking ownership of production applications – managing issues, releases and ensuring quality

 

You must have

  • Availability to work full-time within a fast-moving cross-functional team, working 11 am – 7 pm Central European Team
  • Proven experience using Agile Methodologies in a remote team
  • Production experience of React/Vue/Angular/Backbone framework applications and, highly prefered – React Native experience
  • A minimum of 2 years of experience performing this kind of role
  • Excellent communication skills (both verbal and written) are essential for this role.

 

What do we offer

  • 100% Remote team:

Work as part of a talented, globally distributed, successful team with over 8 years of remote experience.

  • Interesting challenges: 

We’ve done everything from scaling high-performance applications, building beautiful (but complex) user interfaces to low-level Bluetooth communication with hardware devices.

  • Impact: 

Our delivery teams are fast-moving, highly collaborative, and own products end to end your thinking and contribution make a big impact!

  • Great environment: 

We provide a great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people.

  • Career progression: 

We want you to grow with us and provide the opportunities, knowledge sharing, and mentorship to do that.

  • The best-in-class toolsets:

Slack, CI/CD with Docker, etc

  • Work-life balance: 

love your work, but know that it doesn’t take over your life.

  • Paid Meetups:

Come meet with your colleagues in Barcelona, or at a local meetup.

  • Competitive compensation:

This is a contract position with a long-term outlook (12 months+ full-time projects) for the right candidate.

 

Why is it good to work with us

Because we work on great projects. Sure, we can list the latest set of technologies that we use, but that is a given. Everyone does that right? What’s more interesting is how they are used – the design, the architecture, the approach to solving business problems, and helping businesses to grow. And we do that across multiple clients – each and everyone we’re excited to work with.

Because we believe in constant learning and exploring – whether that’s a new skill, a new role, or a new way of seeing.  And because we’ve found that we learn the most when we take on new challenges as a team. We’re proud that people love working with us (and still have lives outside of work). Want to know more? Check out www.whitespectre.com and we’re proud of what people are saying about us on Glassdoor
