Senior Frontend Developer (React)

Netherlands, Noord-Holland, AmsterdamTech

Job description

We have positions available at intermediate, senior or lead level and support international relocation to Amsterdam.

StuDocu was founded on the principle that equal access to study notes reduces inequality between students. Today, we make it easy for 17 million students to share notes. 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 just 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 15 million students?

We are looking for a talented addition to our team who is a wizard with JavaScript and has ample experience with modern JS frameworks. 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. Our agile team is still small which will put you right at the core of our development team. Joining us now gives you the opportunity to be one of our team leaders in the future.

Why you'll love it here:

  1. We are using the latest technologies (currently Typescript 4.7, React 18, NextJS 12.1) and updating the older ones whenever possible.
  2. A great software development culture where you can really influence the technology roadmap.
  3. Learn from 6 scrum teams, 35 different nationalities and more than 100 employees.
  4. 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, but people are free to work from home if they find it more productive.
  5. An awesome office in the centre of Amsterdam with a huge garden, right next to the canals.
  6. A free healthy lunch and unhealthy snacks every day when in the office.
  7. 24 holidays based on 40 hours per week. We also provide a public transport card and contribute to your pension scheme.
  8. Money. Depending on your skills and experience, we expect that you earn a yearly salary up to 59K euro (intermediate level) or up to 80K euro (senior-level) on the cash side plus additional stock.
  9. You will be helping to build a product that aids many millions of students worldwide to excel in their courses.
  10. And did you know that we are the most funded Edtech scale-up in the Netherlands?

What our process looks like:

  • First, there is a short introductory call with our recruiter to get to know you better.
  • Then, a second call with one of our Engineering Managers to touch base and tell you more about the future of our teams and products.
  • If that goes well, you will receive a coding assignment followed by a technical interview with two of our developers as a last step of the recruitment process.

Job requirements

We are looking for you when you are keen to work with core front-end web technologies:

  • Next.js
  • React
  • Redux
  • Typescript
  • Jest + React Testing Library
  • Sass (SCSS)

To be successful in this role, this is the kind of profile we have in mind:

  1. A React and JavaScript / TypeScript expert
  2. Ability to write clean, performant, reusable code
  3. Solid English communication skills, both written and verbal
  4. Bonus points if you have experience with AWS, SEO, or if you are proficient with PHP / Laravel.

Please note that we support international relocation to Amsterdam and have positions available at intermediate, senior or lead level.
