Senior Front-end Developer

As a Front-end Developer at Valtech you deliver the best end-user experience, using all the tools and technologies that are available in our fast-evolving community. Whether your website or application is being used on a pc or mobile device, you know how to take performance to a higher level. This role is on-site and will require being based in the Netherlands or willing to relocate.

What will you be doing?

You will have a strong focus on the technical aspects of modern front-end development. So, this isn’t restricted to the classical HTML/CSS/JavaScript in a web browser. You will also set up front-end CI/CD stacks, unit testing and quality assurance. You encourage and motivate your fellow front-end colleagues to get their skills to a higher level and guide them on a daily basis. Next to your work on our clients’ projects, you are also part of a national and international community of fellow developers in which you play an active role by helping to spread knowledge and shaping the path of our craft. Many of the projects you will be working on are part of big platforms, driven by state-of-the-art ecosystems such as Optimizely, Commercetools or Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). Therefore, your front-end solutions are thoughtfully structured and highly maintainable.

What do we expect from you?

  • At least 4 years relevant experience, preferably in a similar environment such as a digital agency
  • Substantial experience in one or more of the ‘big three’ most common modern JavaScript frameworks React, Vue and Angular (one of them has to be either React or Vue), concepts like state management (Vuex, Redux/Sagas, etc..), unit-testing, workflow automation, performance, common design patterns
  • Strong focus on the technical implementation of frontend solutions

  • You are familiar with Agile and Scrum
  • You're fluent in English. Do you speak Dutch too? That's an advantage

What do we offer in return?

Good employment terms and conditions, a competitive salary and room to develop yourself. How quickly your career progresses and how fast your salary grows depends entirely on you – with some help from your mentor, of course. Our internal Academy will also help you continue to develop yourself. In addition, you can also follow a work-related educational program with an external provider (in consultation with your mentor). And because work, learning and private life are increasingly entwined, you can arrange your working time flexibly to match your creative peaks.
