Front-end engineer

As a front-end engineer at Luminis you’re responsible for building great usable products. We work on creating a lot of reusable components for frameworks like Angular and React. Of course you are able to work with things like CSS/Sass/Less, HTML5, npm, Grunt webpack and Jest, and you know how to make a good dashboard. Next to that we expect you to be proactive in researching new technologies to build even better products.

Our activities are diverse, from apps with Ionic or React Native to SPA’s with Angluar. Because we’re doing a lot of data driven projects it would be useful for you to have experience with charting libraries to create charts and other kinds of data visualisations. For these visualisations we tend to use D3, but we’ve also done implementations with C3.js, amCharts, or maybe you know of other types of libraries that work even better.

Because we work in teams it would be useful if you’re also able to perform some basic back-end tasks. Our reference architecture is usually a front-end connected to a back-end via REST. Most of our back-end applications are written in Java with Spring Boot. It would be great if you can jump in when needed to create some Spring controllers in Java or adding a database to your local machine, so you can work with back-enders to create successful projects.

What do we expect from our new front-end engineer?

  • Experience with Javascript frameworks like Angular and Vue.js;
  • Experience with React library;
  • Experience with task runners like Gulp, Grunt or Webpack
  • Experience with package managers like npm or Yarn;
  • Experience with Responsive design;
  • Experience with SCRUM or other project methodologies
  • Experience with version control systems: Git, etc.
  • BS in Information Systems / Computer Science, or equivalent degree. Ofcourse a genius self-taught is more than welcome!

What it is you get back? A very nice, friendly and small team where you are being approached personally. Projects in consultation, with attention to your own learning path and ambition. An exceptional workspace in a former sugar silo, a daily lunch walk, fresh fruit and good coffee. Flexibility, independence and entrepreneurship. And all this within a larger organisation, where regularly great, inspiring events are being organised – and company trips are certainly not last on the list. Do we need to say more?
