Senior Frontend / UI / UX Developer

Salary Competitive

You’re an experienced frontend developer looking to make an impact. We’re a tech start-up turning travel into a force for climate change mitigation. Let's team up to help the planet.


Who you are

You’re one part seasoned coding pro, with knowledge of the technologies that drive the modern web, and one part user ambassador who strives to maximize the user experience from start to finish. You love working in the crossroads of frontend development, user interface design and user experience.

You enjoy being part of a well-functioning team and learning from talented colleagues – that is, as long as you have the freedom to manage your time, tasks, and projects your way.


Who we are

At first glance, we’re a hotel booking platform, just like the rest of them. We carry the same hotels. We offer the same prices. But we’re not like them.

We turn the travel industry into a force for climate change mitigation. By quantifying and verifiably removing all greenhouse gas emissions from business travel, we help companies meet their climate goals in an easy-to-adopt way.

Our office environment is informal but serious. We’re here to change the world, and we want the journey to be as pleasant as possible.


Your mission

As a Senior Frontend Developer, you’ll work with a small team that translates business knowledge into innovative solutions and loveable software. The team is responsible for all stages between the idea and final product, including design, user experience, architecture, implementation, testing, and operations – and you’ll have the chance to help with all of it.

You’ll have the opportunity to work with a range of technologies and open-source tools and see your work contribute to solving the biggest problem of our time.

You will be producing excellent quality code, and beautiful interfaces that are a joy to the end user. You will take charge of sub projects and work closely with colleagues in design and communication to design and build solutions that inspire. You will influence our product and your colleagues with your deep-rooted sense of end user experience.

We put trust in our developers. You are closest to the code, so you can (and should) see the weird edge cases and take pre-emptive actions to make our codebase resilient.

Our developers are not ticket-takers; you’re the very core of operations.


What you get to do

You get to play a key role in a small team moving from start-up to scale-up.


You’ll help:

  • Implement state of the art UI with a continuous focus on the end user

  • Transform user-needs into tangible product functionality

  • Extend and evolve our frontend architecture and systems

  • Quantify the user experience with data to drive confident decisions

  • Test and maintain code and systems to ensure a stable runtime environment


Really, no amount of bullets will do justice to the job. You’ll find yourself involved in everything needed to run a modern tech organization.


What you bring to the team

Experience:

  • 5+ years of experience in software development and design (the number of years is less important than the quality of your experience)


Skills:

  • You can architect, build, deploy, host and maintain reliable front-end services

  • You understanding cross-platform compatibility issues and ways to work around them

  • Experience in some of these will be helpful: TypeScript, ReactJS, MobX, Expo, Figma, Heroku, Docker, NodeJS, React Native, Storybook, Cypress

  • Solid English communication skills, both written and verbal (Danish not required)


Mindset:

  • You like taking initiative, working autonomously, and bringing tasks to completion

  • If you get stuck on a problem, you’re ready to try creative solutions to unstick yourself (your managers are here to help, but they aren’t fans of micromanagement)

  • Can work independently, but know that success is a team effort


What we offer

  • A fair wage and healthcare

  • Stock options. To us, it is essential that all employees own a real stake in our success

  • Flexible work hours and the ability to work from home. We believe work is a thing you do, not necessarily a place you go every day


Practicalities

The position is open immediately. We will conduct ongoing interviews, so apply now.
