front-end developer

Vacancy overview


We're looking for a front-end developer with a sense of style and a knack for engineering — someone with an untamable urge to learn.

You'll work from our office in Antwerp. We are not looking into remote work or relocation at this point. Knowledge of Dutch is mandatory.

You understand that a well-built website requires a blend of engineering, appearance, speed, usability, content and structure. You're meticulous and can finish something to the last detail.

Enthusiasm and eagerness to learn are of more importance than your previous educational trajectory. When it comes to your craft, you like to stay on top of things. When in doubt, you're an expert at navigating around Google. You're an independent problem-solver, yet not too modest to look for help when necessary.

Your solutions are reusable and tried-and-tested while being original at the same time. You have a mindset for thinking in components and have an affinity for open source.

You realize that a client won't always share your vision.

Our track

You'll be part of an experienced team with variation in clients and projects.

You'll have sufficient space for experimentation and self education, and an allowance for trainings and conferences. You'll have a hand in open source projects that are being used worldwide.

The atmosphere is unconstrained; this doesn't mean teambuilding and paintball in the week-end.

We don't value hierarchy much. Despite a proven methodology, we are open for every input from your part.

Why us:

  • A fulltime position with a competitive salary
  • A budget for trainings & conferences — home & abroad
  • Modern hardware: a new SSD laptop & shiny smartphone with a sufficient cell phone plan and internet at home
  • A compensation for your transportation expenses
  • An open office in Antwerp with good music but no annoying radio
  • A monthly Italian lunch with the team
