Front End Engineer

By Arvid van Kasteel

The Front-end developer vacancy at TWC in Amsterdam-Zuid means:

That your day as a developer starts anywhere between 9.00 and 10.00. And that you will be part of an Agile team working to realise front-end applications for web, mobile, set-top box, Smart TV, media players and game consoles. But there’s more to the job than that. You will be involved with all facets of the process, from pitch to Quality Assurance. Your input will be appreciated on all fronts:

  • Before you start programming, you will collaborate with the design team and the lead engineer to decide on the choices to be made in order to achieve the User Experience that is appropriate for the goals of the project.
  • During the development process of applications, we continuously deliver builds for internal and external tests.
  • Using, amongst others, Jira, Slack, BaseCamp, Skype, Git and Scrum boards, you will communicate with all stakeholders, retain an overview and maintain control over a project.
  • You will provide clients with clear explanations on (interim) deliverables and translate their feedback into the next sprint.
  • After the go-live, we will monitor everything in collaboration with all parties concerned. What are the clients saying, the end users and the measuring systems? We do this to learn and to implement points for improvement in the next release.

We offer (amongst other things):

  • A full-time job, starting immediately, that will put a smile on your face.
  • A working week of between 32 and 40 hours, with the possibility of occasionally working from home.
  • A gross monthly salary of between €3,200 and €4,000 on a full-time basis.
  • Ample career growth opportunities. This means that at some point, the opportunity may arise for you to become Team Lead or Technical Project Manager of new development teams.
  • An easy-to-reach office in Amsterdam-Zuid, close to the Olympisch Stadion on the A10 ring road.
  • Travel allowance and/or a company bike
  • Opportunities for additional training, participation in internal R&D projects, events/seminars in work time and paid for by the company.
  • Company laptop

And as a bonus you get:

  • An informal atmosphere in our fantastic offices in Amsterdam (for an impression, see our Instagram account) and in Budapest
  • After-work drinks, and excursions in the Netherlands and abroad
  • And last but not least: great co-worker professionals you can game with in the office, as well as play table football and pool with (there’s even a swing installed)!

The ideal front-end developer for TWC has:

  • Talent, ambition and passion
  • Expertise in JavaScript, HTML5, CSS, and familiarity with AMD and Modular JS development
  • A relevant university-level education
  • 3 to 5 years relevant work experience
  • A ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’ mentality
  • Strong communication skills, both spoken and written
  • A good command of the English language in a work setting
  • Preferably experience in the following:
    • NodeJS / NPM / Grunt, Coffee script, PHP, Ruby / Python
    • Xamarin or Phone Gap
    • Streaming video
