Front-end Developer at Formaviva

This is a fully remote position, full-time or part-time, with flexible working hours and work arrangements.

We’re looking for an experienced developer to become a part of our close-knit remote engineering team and help build high quality products and tools. You should have plenty of experience building advanced SPA web applications, having a knack for good UX, be a master in JavaScript and CSS, being able to inspect browser performance bottlenecks, adopt any kind of modern front-end framework, implement responsive visualizations, write tests and occasionally touch back-end code if needed.

About the role

You should have plenty of experience in building performant, easy to use, well monitored and well tested interfaces, creating and maintaining robust web applications, designing friendly and efficient interfaces, communicating clearly, sharing knowledge and questioning existing solutions.

If you are a positive-oriented hacker who does not fit the traditional company structure and resonates with the mindset of programming languages and paradigms being just a tool and not a heavy personal attachment and identification, then this role might be the right fit for you.

About the company

Our mission is to build the best platform for independent electronic music and make it accessible to more people. As an organization, we strive for innovation and excellence using technologies and influencing music consumption behavioral shifts.

Our development process

We wish to deploy daily. Around this intention, we would like to design our whole development environment — we love code reviews, solid tests, continuous integration and delivery. It will never happen your pull requests get stuck, neglected or forgotten. There is very little overhead, meetings are kept to a minimum.

We wish to have the processes in place to ensure a proper mixture of shipping new features, maintaining existing systems, addressing technical debt, and experimentation.

You’ll hold final responsibility for the solutions you build, from the inception of the idea, to shipping to production. Every member of our team is responsible for a certain subsystem. That means you’re responsible for it to work correctly at all times, and you are given the freedom to implement mechanisms to ensure that.
