Senior Frontend Engineer at Peakon
Copenhagen, DK

We’re a team driven by the belief that we can radically change the world of work. We believe – and hear from our customers every day – that when an organisation understands itself better, it can create more fulfilling jobs, and grow in ways never before imagined.

 

Enterprises big and small trust our products to provide visibility and clarity in areas once characterised by hearsay and uncertainty. With the insights delivered by Peakon, these organisations become more agile, responsive, and able to make the changes and investments that their employees care about most.

 

We’re in the business of creating great places to work, and we strive our utmost to practice what we preach to our customers. With ambitions as big as ours, we see individual growth and development as the key strategy for growing our business.

 

Trust and transparency guide everything we do here. You’ll find an open salary model, unlimited vacation, minimal hierarchy, and maximum freedom to develop and execute your own ideas. Our style of collaboration is based on honesty and friendship, and we always love making new friends...

 

RESPONSIBILITIES:

As a senior frontend engineer, you will be working on developing world class user experiences for our customers. You will be working on new features and products, writing code and participating in the early design and planning phases of projects. You will also be a key contributor in technical and architectural discussions, and work closely with technical leadership to develop the technical frontend roadmap.

 

WHO ARE YOU:

You are an engineer at heart, who loves to tinker and build new products. You stay up to date on the latest technology trends and have experience in modern JavaScript development practices and technologies such as React and Redux. You strive for elegant, powerful and simple solutions. You have experience developing web applications in an agile environment and know the value of code testing. For your next role, you are looking for an opportunity to grow your career in a company and help define and shape the engineering team and the technology it depends on.

 

OUR TECH:

The tech stack of Peakon centers around JavaScript, with Node on the server and React/Redux combo on the frontend. We believe there is great value in a shared toolchain across the stack, enabling engineers to work on all parts of the system. Some tasks are better solved with different tools, and thus we use f.ex. Python for the data science parts of the system.

 

We rely heavily on automated testing on all levels of the application, with thousands of tests checking every commit to our code base. We use CircleCI for hosted continuous integration to make sure our most recent changes are always available to test and we deploy code to the production environment on a daily basis.

Requirements

  • +4 years experience working as a frontend engineer in an agile environment.
  • Excellent knowledge of web technologies like JavaScript, REST, JSON, CSS, HTML etc.
  • Deep knowledge of React, Redux and the underlying concepts that make it such a strong and popular combination.

  • You see beauty and elegance in simple, yet powerful solutions and strive to achieve it.
  • You have experienced the value of unit tests and the confidence it gives to a programmer when pushing to production.

 

We welcome your application even if you do not meet all of the criteria listed above, but are excited about the challenge of mastering this role. We know that skills are not static and growth is continuous, so we are excited to help you take your career to the next level at Peakon!
