Job Description

We are looking for an enthusiastic front-end developer that helps us to design and build a new generation of tools that will transform open-access publishing. By working at Frontiers you will play a key role in shaping the future of science and academic publishing. You will be joining a thriving company where your contribution will have an immediate effect on the way science is evolving.

You will work in a small team along with other talented developers. Supported by a Scrum Master, QA Engineer and Product Owner, the team usually works in two-week sprints. The team has recently worked on a tool which allows users to visualize and explore publishing data with quick searches and filters. They want to take this tool to the next level with dashboards, metrics, advanced search, reports and visualizations to transform data into decision making information for the business. Recently they have also delivered a product to ensure email address quality, made with Azure Data Lake Analytics and Logic Apps.

What you will do

  • Develop small, well crafted components that plug into our publishing data exploring user interface.
  • Write testable and maintainable Javascript code that makes the execution of the application fast & fluid.
  • Optimize HTML & CSS code for the best looking & performant experience.
  • Collaborate with designers and UX experts in order to bring concepts and ideas to life.
  • Develop APIs that efficiently read & write data exposed in the user interface.
  • Participate in your team's Scrum process.
  • Initiate and participate in technical discussions, where many tools, architectures and processes are on the table.
  • Pair program and discuss solutions with your peers in order to share knowledge.
  • Contribute to overall software quality by writing elegant and testable code.

Your day in the office

The next story in the Sprint you are handling is about developing a dashboard that displays relevant metrics and visual helpers about authors. With this, users will be able to assess author relevance for a potential contribution in one of our Research Topics. You will plan for the day during the Daily Scrum and sync up with your team. You call one of the members of the Design team and clear up any doubts prior to the implementation. You team up with another team members and start plugging your HTML / CSS / Javascript code. You start seeing good progress and you decide there’s enough to show to your peers in a Code Review. They learn from your explanations and they make small suggestions. You apply those suggestions together with some tests and you then call your Product Owner to show the results. Time flies and it’s time to head out, you are happy with the progress made.
