Job description

You will be part of a product team who develop the IT purchasing solution (Marketplace) for global companies. Our goal is to provide clear, intuitive and consistent UI for end users, keeping in mind that Marketplace is a tool for its users. As a second goal, we want to build a front-end framework based on Bootstrap that is easy to use for future developments. We believe that simple improvements or mocking of new features should not be challenging for any member of the product team.
Join us if you are tired of running from one project to another; if you dream of more responsibility and freedom; if you dream of focusing on a single, great and global product; if you want the joy of developing something awesome on a long-term basis and seeing the fruits of the hard labour; if you want to keep aiming towards perfecting the perfect and expressing yourself.
This position means that you are the front-end lead of a global SaaS solution working with 20% of Fortune 500 companies in 34 countries. You are the real “go to person” in a small, focused, creative and high gear development team. Yes, for real.
As a side note, the company is great. We are actually useful, the team is great, we stand for something we believe in. We have been around for 15 years and we will be around, thus your salary and options are always paid and actually exercised and then some, but that is already for the interviews.
