Frontend Developer (f/m/x)

Front-end Developer (f/m/x)

Are you tired of working at a megacorp? Do you want to forget about hierarchal structures and bureaucracy and instead build a ground-up idea with a few colleagues? Are you eager to develop software with an API at the core, in a bigger and more powerful context? If you have not yet said 'yes' to some or all of these questions, then please probably not apply! We have a challenge, a vision, and a few wishes.

We want to be useful. We want to develop projects that touch the lives of many people and that they are deeply in love with. We want to be able to develop early and 'release often'. We want to experience a high degree of independence. We want to be left to grow as best we can, individually and together. We don't want to be just extended arms of bigger cooperations in which we can't do our things. We want to build applications that are robust, beautiful, and useful. We want to create something that many people will use and be intensely interested in.

Do you want to work with us on one of these challenges? Ok, then come and tell us something about yourself!
