Frontend Developer (React)

Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, NetherlandsTech

Job description

Studocu was founded on the principle that equal access to study notes reduces inequality between students. Today, we make it easy for more than 45+ million students to share notes every month. The product was a rocket ship from day one and has shown strong product-market fit on every continent, making us a key player in the exploding EdTech space. We received a $50 million Series B investment so we’re in rapid growth and scale mode, and we need serious talent to help us make it happen.

Do you want to work on a platform that makes study materials accessible for 45+ million students?

We are expanding our 10 scrum teams consisting of 65+ back-end, full-stack, and front-end experts, and are looking for a talented addition to our High School team who is a wizard with Typescript and has ample experience with modern JS frameworks. Our team’s mission is to tailor the product experience for high school students to better suit their specific needs. The growth potential here is enormous as more than half a billion people worldwide are attending secondary education. As our Fronted Developer, you will be working with our designers and back-end developers to create responsive pages that provide our users with the best possible experience. Your hunger for technology is only matched by your motivation to solve difficult problems fast, efficiently, and with a keen eye for design.

What you’ll be doing:

  • You will collaborate closely with the product manager, the designer, and the other front-end developers to come up with user-oriented solutions.

  • You will be involved in the full development cycle - refinement, implementation, and code review.

  • You will have the opportunity to share and apply your knowledge and expertise on technical topics.

Why you'll love it here:
  • We are using the latest technologies (currently Typescript 4.8, React 18, NextJS 12.3) and updating the older ones whenever possible.

  • Your own workspace including the hardware of your choosing (Mac or Linux). Since COVID we've had a hybrid approach to work where we aim to see everybody at least twice a week in our office.

  • You will be helping to build a product that aids many millions of students worldwide to excel in their courses.

  • An awesome office in the centre of Amsterdam with a huge garden, right next to the canals.

  • A free healthy lunch and unhealthy snacks every day when in the office.

  • 24 holidays based on 40 hours per week. We also provide a public transport card and contribute to your pension scheme.

  • At least a BSC in computer science.

  • And did you know that we are the most funded Edtech scale-up in the Netherlands?

Our process:

  1. Introductory interview with a recruiter.
  2. Interview with our Engineering Manager.
  3. Coding assignment to do at home.
  4. Final technical interview based on your assignment.
