We are looking for a skilled Frontend Lead with an eye for great UIs to join our highly international team.
As our Frontend Lead, you'll be responsible for making sure our engineering team is always updated on the newest developments within your field of expertise. No people management; all we require is a focus on pushing the boundaries of what the team can deliver in terms of quality, innovation, and technological frontend savviness.
Location: Skien / Oslo / Semi-remote
Your daily routine:
Together with the rest of the frontend team, you’ll be building and maintaining web applications for our clients. You'll work closely with our backend and fullstack developers to deliver consistent and reliable web experiences. In collaboration with our designers, you’ll be working to improve usability for the end-user while maintaining high-quality graphic standards and brand consistency. You'll optimize web design for mobile and other platforms for maximum speed. Ultimately, your work will have a direct impact on the user experience of our clients’ products.
As our Frontend Lead, you will have an added responsibility of making sure the team stays up to date on newest developments within the frontend tech space. This includes setting high and right standards for delivery and communicating these to the rest of the team, coaching team members to aid in their professional growth, as well as weighing in on project plans to optimize Snowball’s customer delivery.
You will not do this alone, of course. You’ll report to our Head of Engineering, and together you will drive the further development of our engineering team.
We hope you like to play with things like:
- Building highly performant web applications with React, preferably using TypeScript
- Responsive layouts with pixel perfect implementation of designs
- Browser APIs know-how for better cross-browser functionality
- Building microservices and/or serverless applications using Node.js, AWS Lambda, or similar technologies from other cloud providers
- Working with GraphQL
- Integrating 3rd party APIs like Sendgrid, Stripe
- Writing unit and integration tests, TDD
- Experience setting up CI/CD pipelines
- Prototyping & exploring new technologies
You ideally bring the following to our team:
It might be helpful if you have a relevant educational background; a bachelor or master’s degree in software engineering or similar. However, we know that some of the best developers out there are self-taught.
Relevant experience within the frontend tech space, where you can show that you’re capable of implementing solutions that are user responsive and efficient, and a resilient web architecture.
You’re halfway there if you have a true passion for continuous learning and development. Often supported by testing and debugging in your projects. Being a Frontend Lead requires you to always stay one step ahead and be updated on what’s new.
The ability to coach others is an important quality as our Frontend Lead. Communicating developments within your field to others in an inspiring and motivating way is the key to success in this role.
It’s very useful if you have the ability to elegantly manage cloud services on AWS and a good understanding of the full stack required to build modern scalable applications. You should also demonstrate knowledge of the entire development process.
