Frontend Developer

Salary Competitive

Who we are

ChronosHub is the leading open-access management platform streamlining data and simplifying communication flows for customers worldwide. We have a classic start-up mentality with all this entails – a young environment, flat organizational structure, foosball table, enormous flexibility, ups and downs, but most importantly, we learn and evolve.


What will you do

You will become part of our small and strong tech team driving our digital development projects. As the Frontend Developer, you will be working on developing new features ensuring the scalability and automation of the systems as well as supporting our customers. In cooperation with the team, you will refine, estimate, develop, test, and document the features that we develop for our customers. You will deliver high-quality testable code and drive to keep improving working methods, practices, and processes.


Preferred skillset

We value raw, natural talent much more than having the 'right' degree - in other words, don't be discouraged to apply for this position just because you don't hold a degree. The skills, we are looking for, are:

  • Relevant technical graduate degree (e.g., ITU, engineering, or similar proven experience)

  • A few years of professional experience with frontend development

  • A desire to learn is a must

  • Ready to take on challenges, which are sometimes outside of your current skillset

  • Strong understanding of Javascript

  • Experience with building responsive applications with HTML and CSS

  • Experience with CSS preprocessors (preferably SCSS)

  • Able to give and receive feedback

  • Fluent English orally and in writing


Following skills are considered an advantage, but not a requirement

  • Experience with React/Angular/Vue (we use Vue)

  • Experience with Typescript

  • Experience with UX and design

  • Danish fluently


Where you will work: You will work from our headquarter in central Copenhagen.

Working at
ChronosHub

Who we are ChronosHub enables authors to select suitable journals for their manuscript submissions by making funding policies and institutional agreements transparent. Through a collaborative approach, ChronosHub streamlines the workflow for institutions, publishers and funders for an effective APC management, OA agreement monitoring, funding policy compliance, repository deposits and OA reporting. Our History In 2014, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced its Open Access Policy to accelerate the impact of its funded research. ChronosHub was built in 2016 to encourage adoption of the policy, reduce complexity, and minimize manual work. While initially built for the Gates Foundation, ChronosHub was re-designed to scale to the broader research community to simplify implementation of publishing policies for research and address the grantees’ concerns about additional workload. ChronosHub takes a collaborative approach to support all scholarly communication stakeholders throughout the publishing process. Since the launch in 2017, ChronosHub is managing over 20 thousand grants and ten thousand OA articles with over $22 million in article processing charges (APCs). What we contribute to Research is fundamental to humanity, but the world of academic publishing is getting more and more complex. Researchers spend up to 35% of their time on administration, funders struggle with compliance management, institutions lack transparency, and publishers are challenged by new business models. The market for research publication is currently being transformed by an increase in Open Access and Open Science, and there are more than eight million researchers eligible for the trillion of dollars granted to research every year, so the potential impact is huge. More than three million journal articles were published in 2019 – that’s 8,000 per day, and $750 million paid in Article Processing Charges (APCs). A number that’s expected to double in the coming years.
