Frontend Developer

Kraków

Create Team

We are looking for a passionate frontend developer who wants to join our mission to build the world’s best journalistic tools, and who sees importance in journalism for driving society forward.

You should be proficient with modern JavaScript, React and React ecosystem. Node.js knowledge is handy but not strictly required. Our project strives to be forward leaning in terms of keeping up to date with modern libraries and techniques, and you should not be afraid to experiment with new ways of applying technology.

We are looking for someone who can bring ideas to the team and can contribute to our mission of allowing journalists to be journalists.

Our work

The main driving factor behind the tasks we take on, is the needs of Schibsted’s newsrooms. We cooperate with big names such as Aftenposten, VG and Aftonbladet, but also with smaller newsrooms. They have needs that may cover topics such as enabling new ways to present stories, getting better assistance creating content, and future planning of content.

The application was initially built over 8 years ago, and is undergoing a modernization in terms of technology, UI, and features. The original code base is in Backbone, but we are in the process of replacing every single section of the application, with modernized sections that are designed and specified from the ground up, and written in React + TypeScript. In the process, we have ensured a top-notch developer experience where anything new is not to be held back by legacy.

What you’ll do:

  • Develop on a modern React stack written in TypeScript, where you have the freedom to explore the latest technologies and techniques
  • Build the front-end for the CMS used by Schibsted’s newsrooms, where journalists produce articles reaching a wide audience in Norway and Sweden
  • Implement features that enable our journalists to have higher impact, in an era where reliable news are more important than ever
  • Collaborate closely with a product designer, UX designer and other team members
  • Contribute in other areas than front-end, if you have other areas that interest you
  • Develop your skills directly through the work you do, and also through 10% time dedicated to personal development
  • Write tests that allow us to upgrade dependencies, refactor and improve code with minimal risk
  • Leverage the freedom we have as a team to determine our own process and way of working
  • Thrive in a collaborative and agile environment involving different stakeholders and an evolving family of products and services
  • Getting guidance and mentoring by senior team members
  • Knowledge sharing

Requirements:

  • Experience with building and delivering web based applications.
  • Knowledge of JavaScript with an ability to weigh the pros and cons of certain implementations and frameworks.
  • A background of fundamental computer science algorithms and patterns.
  • Interest in system design.
  • Team mentality and willingness to share knowledge and ideas in a productive manner.
  • Fluency in English language, both written and spoken.

Bonus points:

  • Experience on open-source projects.
  • Contributions to tech journals or blogs.
  • Having an interest in DX (Developer Experience) – how do we make better products by helping other developers?
