Job Description

We are looking for a Senior Front End / React Engineer to join our team. We're helping a well-established client take their user experience to the next level and move from a rails monalith into rails services with react.js frontend. Are you excited about designing from the ground up a new SPA, ensuring efficient client-side performance and using the latest frameworks/best practices?

Whitespectre is a technology consultancy that develops high-performing platforms and applications for our client partners. We work with both high-growth start-ups and large established companies looking to launch new products. Founded in 2015, we’re a team of 70 smart and diverse architects, engineers, product managers, and designers from across the globe, working together remotely- and we’re growing fast!

What will you do?

  • Designing and building complex Javascript (mainly ES6, webpack, React) presentation layers to consume RESTful APIs in a performant way.
  • Working with Product and UI/UX to help envision the next generation user experience.
  • Collaborating with backend engineers in designing, specifying and implementing services to decouple functionality
  • Occasionally going full stack and diving in the the Rails services to add a new endpoint or modify behavior (and we can help you learn here too)
  • Identifying bottlenecks, using tools to diagnose and refactor code for scale
  • Ensuring the robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system.
  • Writing well tested, defect free code with CI/CD
  • Taking ownership of production applications - managing issues, releases and ensuring quality

You must have...

  • Production experience of React/Vue framework applications
  • Have taken a senior role / been a significant contributer to a JS frontend
  • Availability to work full-time within a fast-moving cross-functional team, working 11 am - 8 pm Central European Team
  • Proven experience using Agile Methodologies in a remote team
  • A minimum of 5 years of experience in software engineering
  • Excellent communication skills (both verbal and written)

What do we offer?

  • 100% Remote team: Work as part of a talented, globally distributed, successful team with over 8 years of remote experience.  
  • Interesting challenges: We’ve done everything from scaling high-performance applications, building beautiful (but complex) user interfaces to low-level bluetooth communication with hardware devices.
  • Impact: Our delivery teams are fast-moving, highly collaborative, and own products end to end- your thinking and contribution make a big impact!
  • Great environment: We provide a great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people.
  • Career progression: We want you to grow with us and provide the opportunities, knowledge sharing and mentorship to do that.
  • The best-in-class toolsets: Slack, CI/CD with Docker etc
  • Work-life balance: love your work, but know that it doesn’t take over your life.
  • Paid Meetups: Come meet with your colleagues in Barcelona, or at a local meetup.
  • Competitive compensation: we’re looking for long-term members to add to our remote team. Many have been with us for 5+ years. Depending on location, we will hire as employees or Independent contractors.

Please no recruiting agencies

Why is it good to work with us?

Because we work on great projects. Sure, we can list the latest set of technologies that we use, but that is a given. Everyone does that right? What's more interesting is how they are used - the design, the architecture, the approach to solving business problems, and helping businesses to grow. And we do that across multiple clients - each and everyone we're excited to work with.

Because we believe in constant learning and exploring - whether that’s a new skill, a new role, or a new way of seeing. And because we've found that we learn the most when we take on new challenges as a team. We’re proud that people love working with us (and still have lives outside of work). Want to know more?
