Front-end developer

Put your front-end developing skills to the test by contributing to our awesome products that transform the way people communicate.

FULL-TIME · GRONINGEN

We are looking for a passionate front-end developer who wants to use the knowledge and experience they have contributing to challenging and innovative ideas. Your job will be to help build front-ends on the three different in-house-built products we develop and sell. In addition to the time and energy you spend on developing, you will also have a voice in shaping how the front-ends are built. A concrete example of the work you would be doing is contributing to separating the back and front-ends of VoIPGRID, one of our products. 

You come from a technical background and during your professional journey, you made the conscious decision to join the front-end ecosystem. You understand the importance of keeping the user in mind while developing. You use these skills and perspectives to bring ideas to the table and will stand up for your ideas, but also welcome other opinions. You enjoy working together to solve each challenge in the best way possible. You are comfortable working technologies like JavaScript (ES6+), CSS and HTML. And a stack that includes React, Vue, Webpack, Parcel, Rollup, and Sass.

  • have 2-3 years of experience with JavaScript
  • know HTML & CSS
  • have experience with version control (we use Git)
  • have ambitions to grow within the front-end field
  • are comfortable working independently on projects
  • are comfortable communicating and working in English


Bonus points if you:

About Spindle

Devhouse Spindle is a growing and ever-changing organization on a mission to connect the world using open and free communication. With almost 60 colleagues, we develop the tools that make this possible: our award-winning telephony platform VoIPGRID and our smart CRM system for teams called Lily. Spindle is located in Groningen, a beautiful city known for its innovation and the second fastest growing tech city in the Netherlands.

Working at Spindle

If you look around the office, you’ll notice we do things a bit different around here:

  • We organize ourselves using a system called Holacracy. We believe every colleague is able to contribute to the organization rather than relying on a traditional hierarchy. Having no managers comes with extra responsibility to take ownership of your work and set priorities that help to further the organization.
  • We work with a “build, measure, learn” mentality and open mindset. We recognize that not everything you do is going to work right away. We praise experimentation and reward trying something new, even if the lesson is to not try it again.
  • We have an open and transparent salary system. Every colleague is placed in the pathway and a level best fitting their education, experience, and visible behavior. We encourage growth and have clear guidelines and expectations for doing so.
  • We are a diverse and inclusive team of international coworkers. We value the differences that each person brings to the table and think that it's those differences that strengthen our organization. 

What we offer

  • A relaxed and welcoming culture with celebrations, events, and trips

  • A competitive salary and good pension benefits
  • An annual study budget and study days for personal and professional growth
  • Two weeks leave when welcoming a new member to the family
  • Other benefits that contribute to your health, well-being, and work/life balance
