Senior Frontend Engineer

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated

Helppy is on a mission to change elderly care. We make care personal, transparent and accessible to seniors and their families. On the tech side of things, we contribute to this by building a best-in-class platform with superior UX for all the parties involved: the seniors, their families, our Helppers, our operations team and some third parties.

We’re backed by a dream team of investors: Alliance Venture,, and 3 unicorn founders: Johannes Schildt (Kry/Livi), Elias Aalto (Wolt) and Yury Yakubchyk (Elemy, fastest-growing US autism care platform).

Next, we’re launching in several European countries and looking for top talent to help us expand.

If you’re an ambitious frontend engineer who wants a meaningful job in a rising impact startup, hit Apply and join us on this fun ride!

Note: This position is full-time and "hybrid" (expect to see you at the office every now and then).


Tech stack: Typescript, React (Native), Next.js, GraphQL

We believe in Typescript. If something can be typed, it must be typed. Think Typescript, write Typescript.

Working with mapped types, conditional types, template literal types and other advanced Typescript concepts is one of the perks of working at Helppy 😉

We also believe in Next.js and Vercel. The recent announcements of Next.js 13 and Turbopack are just awesome!

And what we're up to here:

What you get to work on

Our platform consists of multiple products used by different user groups in multiple countries:

  • Family app (React Native)

  • Helpper app (React Native)

  • Family portal (Next.js)

  • Helpper application portal (Next.js)

  • Our internal Ops/Admin tool (Next.js)

  • Our public website (Next.js + Storyblok)

You’ll get to work on all (or some) of these, and perhaps some new ones as well. Your main task is to build new features together with the rest of the engineering team and our designer. These features are mainly designed to:

  • Engage the family members of a senior receiving care

  • Elevate the digital experience of being a Helpper

  • Increase the efficiency of our operations team

  • Allow Helppy to enter new markets

You’ll also be shaping our frontend architecture, performing maintenance work and fixing your fair share of bugs. However, our codebase is fairly new and legacy-free, so we expect most work to revolve around shipping new and delightful experiences to our end users.

What we're looking for

  • Proven experience in building rich web and mobile experiences for end users

  • Deep understanding of Typescript and React

  • Open and active mindset when it comes to learnings and improvement ideas

  • Positive attitude: you remember that working can and should be fun!

What we'd be thrilled to see (not mandatory)

  • Experience with our tech stack (Next.js, React Native, GraphQL, etc.)

  • A good eye for usability

  • Interest in working or learning to work full stack

  • Experience with product analytics

What we offer you

  • A very central role in our small but experienced and growing engineering team (4 persons, ~25 employees total)

  • Opportunity for career growth, tailored according to your skills and preferences

  • Significant personal impact on the products we're building

  • Flexibility with most things (working partly remotely, choosing your tools, you name it)

  • An international working environment (main language English) with a nice office in Helsinki

  • Competitive salary, stock options and benefits

  • A meaningful job in a rising impact startup (tech-magazine WIRED just listed Helppy as one of the hottest startups in Europe)

What happens next

  • Apply and we'll review your profile/CV and get back to you

  • First meeting: We get to know each other

  • Assignment: You get a small coding assignment to complete at home

  • Second meeting: You get to meet more of the team

  • Offer: you receive a job offer from us!
