Experienced Frontend engineer

Hybrid - Belgium Regio Ghent

🐱💻 We are on a mission to provide companies with an intelligent platform that brings order and clarity to their scattered information and knowledge.

Are you the developer who can help us achieve this challenge? Please stick with us; we're already halfway there.
Many companies struggle to control their knowledge and processes because they are often stored in silos and content graveyards. But when companies leave their knowledge and information there, they face a loss of time and revenue.

Our solution gives companies back control, peace of mind, and clarity. Whale transforms any company into a great place to work with all the processes and knowledge well documented.
After another successful fundraising round, this promising start-up is investing in scaling up the team.
In the last year, the team has grown from 2 to 7 people.

We are looking to expand our team with a Lead Frontend Developer who believes in this mission and can help us improve and scale the product!

What values do we honor?

Act with integrity. Owning your errors, being honest at all times, and trusting each other.
Be humbly ambitious. Reaching for the moon but remaining grounded.
Frictionless experience. Owning and over-delivering on the customer journey.

As an experienced frontend developer, you will help to:

Turn product requirements and UI designs into high-quality features
Further, grow and build scalable code (components) on the existing code base through the use of agile development standards and guidelines.

React.js is your go-to framework for frontend development.
Knowledge of atomic design or overall Design Systems
