FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM

The challenge

At Emesa you have the chance to work on our own E-commerce websites. Emesa (VakantieVeilingen.nl) is looking for a talented, passionate, and experienced developer to join our customer-facing team and help bringing our sites to the next level. We are tackling the challenging high-volume world of real-time auctions. We have high ambitions to scale and expand, and we need you to be the driver of it from front-end perspective.

What will you be doing?

● As a Front-end Developer at Emesa you will make sure that our front-ends will perform even more, and you will build new killer features;
● You will develop new front-end functionalities according to business requirements;
● We expect you to come up with the technical requirements yourself in collaboration with the team;
● You will have a key role, together with the team, in improving the current front-ends (mobile site for tablet and mobile and normal website) of the auction system, the mobile app and the API;
● You will discuss solutions and challenges with other teams (like data warehouse, ops, system administrators, hardcore backend and API development);
● Every two months you can enjoy taking part in the Emesa Labs Hackathon where you can prototype your own ideas and experiments.

How will you be doing this?

● You are an all-rounder in the Front-end Scrum team. You will have your own specialisation, but you will also be able to support all other tasks within the team;
● You will explain why a solution is the right solution, instead of just adding another library or framework. You are able to mentor less experienced team members;
● You will work together with other developers with different levels of experience to meet the ambitious projects and deadlines.

Desired Skills and Experience

● University/bachelor level degree in Computer Science, Electronic Engineering or Mathematics;

● Several years of experience with: PHP and MySQL on a clustered LAMP platform, performance aware programming, Memcached and MVC frameworks;
● You have rudimentary knowledge of CSS preprocessors, REST, git (GitHub), SOLR (optional) and/or NodeJS (optional);
● You aim for high quality of code and understand the importance of achieving high performance in front-end code;
● Capable of defining new features/processes, based on business and technical requirements;
● Handling code reviews, criticism and adjusting to different coding styles and standards;
● Fluent in English; written and verbally;
● Ability to explain technical concepts to non-technical co-workers.

What can you expect from us?

● An excellent salary and pension plan;
 Lots of room for your own creativity;
