Do you love interactive UIs, stateful web applications, and micro-frontends? Do you like shipping the highest quality products? We are ramping up our engineering team and we want to hear from you!

About the position
We are searching for a passionate Senior Frontend Engineer who can help us lift our highly skilled engineering team. You will be a central part of the development of our product and have a say in choosing technologies, tools, and architecture of new product features. 

Our front-end is built using React with Hooks and its ecosystem. We are using tools like SCSS, CSS Modules to design cool and modern user interfaces, we follow Flux principles and use Redux with Thunks for more advanced state management and tidy our code with ESLint. We are also playing with micro-frontends and lazy-loaded UIs using the new React Lazy and Suspense APIs. 

We have our own component library built in collaboration with our design team, which is used by all our systems to ensure a unified design language across our products. We are using Figma for our mock-ups and Storybook to quickly document it.

We take pride in creating a quality product. To ensure that happen, we are using Jest for unit tests and Cypress for end-to-end tests across all our applications. 

If this is a tech stack that you would like to work with and if you enjoy turning simple and readable code into complete solutions that are used by a million users daily around the globe, then Templafy is the place to be! 

How we work

  • Teams: Each team consists of 4-6 engineers. Teams are cross-functional, self-organised and free to choose their own process, but most use a flavour of Scrum with a 2-week sprint. We believe in the lean principles - e.g. short feedback cycles, minimising handovers, and therefore each team has full responsibility for the features they own from development to deployment. 
  • GuildsGuilds are a place to share knowledge and experiences, and to get help and ideas from others. We currently have DevOps, Cloud, Back-end, Front-end, Security, QA, and Tracking guild. 
  • Architecture: We build software using a flavour of microservices called self-contained systems and we practice the principles of Domain Driven Design with Event Driven Architecture. Yet, we are careful to avoid over-engineering and always strive for the simplest solution possible.  
  • Test focused: We like to test the code we build, and we have a continuous integration infrastructure in place that runs our tests on every push and notifies the team on Slack if something breaks. Even when we are busy, we do not compromise on quality. 
  • DevOps mindset: We are cloud first, and everything is hosted in Microsoft Azure. Each team is responsible for deployments and monitoring of their own services. All work is managed through Azure DevOps including backlog management, source control, pull-requests, releases, and testing. 
  • Automation: We like to automate everything from deployment to setting up new infrastructure. We have built custom tools for configuring our local development environment, publish release notes to Wiki and Slack, nudge engineers about stale tasks, branches, and pull-requests, and more. When NPM or NuGet packages are updated a bot automatically creates a pull-request. All this enables us to do more than 30 daily releases to production on average! 
  • DesignWe have a written coding standard, and we follow clean code principles. We develop most of our features using pair programming. Every change is peer-reviewed. We have tools for automatic code clean-up that ensure consistent formatting and structured and fail builds if any rule is violated.  
  • Tools: We use the best tools available for the job including Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise, ReSharper, Visual Studio Code, JetBrains Rider, Slack, Zoom, Git, Azure DevOps, Microsoft Azure, Docker Desktop, WSL2, SonarQube, Cypress, etc. 
  • Learning: We believe in lifelong learning and encourage everyone to read books, go to conferences, take courses, and certifications. We want to invest in everyone’s personal and professional development, and therefore we provide the necessary resources to support this. Every sprint we have internal Tech Talks and from time to time we also host and speak at meetups. 
  • FlexibleWe have distributed teams across offices in Copenhagen, Berlin and Eindhoven. Yet, all meetings and work happen online. This gives us freedom to work from home when you have a repair person coming, your child is sicketc., and also enabled us to initiate the necessary measures within a minimal amount of time when COVID-19 hit the world. 

Technologies we use

  • Front-end:  TypeScript, React, Redux, Redux-Thunk, SCSS, CSS Modules, Jest, Cypress, Yarn, Rollup, Create-React-App, WPF, etc.
  • Backend: .NET, .NET Core 3.1, C# 8.0, Web API, Entity Framework, VSTO, etc.
  • Hosting: 100% Azure, Docker, Kubernetes (AKS), Web Apps, Terraform, Azure SQL, Azure Service Bus, Application Insights, Azure Monitor, Azure Data Lake, etc.
  • What you bring in: We are not afraid of new technologies, and guilds are discussing new technology on a regular basis, making sure we keep our tools and tech stack current.

About you
We are looking for colleagues that can help us develop our front-end architecture and know how to design modern, high-quality, and performant front-end applications.

You have broad experience with developing and maintaining large JavaScript/TypeScript applications built on modern frameworks like React and their ecosystem, as well as ensuring their quality using all levels of automated tests. You have also worked with modern CSS technologies like CSS pre-processors and have experience designing sleek responsive UIs. You know best practices and how to apply them in order to build intuitive, accessible, performant, and secure web applications.

You enjoy mentoring and teaching colleagues at all levels, while also learning from them. You are structured, responsible, and open-minded team-player who takes initiative.

You will work in a cross-functional team and be part of the Frontend Guild, so you will also have the option to work with .NET, QA, Cloud, DevOps, etc if you like.
