Junior front-end developer at Connected Cars

Connected Cars is working on an ambitious project to connect millions of car-owners with their vehicles by hooking into the on-board diagnostics available in every modern car, and we are looking for enthusiastic and motivated people to join us on that journey. Our mission is to enable safer, more sustainable, and more convenient mobility to the world through responsible and transparent data collection and sharing. Our team consists of around 40 people from different backgrounds, brought together by a shared belief in team effort, fun at work, and delivering quality.

The position

As a junior front-end developer at Connected Cars you will mainly be working with our React code base. A large part of the job is making sure we deliver a high quality and intuitive user experience that works in a wide range of browsers and devices. You’ll also be responsible for moving your own code into production.

On the front-end our main technologies are currently React, TypeScript, Apollo, GraphQL and Codegen.

Our full tech stack across the teams currently includes Node.js (both JavaScript and TypeScript), Python, Go, MySQL, BigQuery, Yocto, Rust, React on web and React Native for our mobile apps on iOS and Android. On the hosting side we are using Google Cloud and several other modern cloud services.

We believe in release early, release often, which is why we run several daily releases using our continuous integration and deployment setup.

Developers work in small teams of about 3-4 people each. We focus on minimal overhead and bureaucracy as we want to ensure independence and that decision power stays within the teams. This means that teams have a lot of influence on how they work, what they focus on, and how they deliver new features and functionality.

We prefer you to work primarily on-site with us in our Copenhagen office (for example 2-3 days per week), but we are open to let the right candidate work remotely from within the EU.

What we’re looking for

We don’t expect you to tick every box in our current tech stack. What matters is that you have some experience as a front-end developer, you like to learn, and know how to leverage your experience across technology stacks and languages.

But here’s what would be a good fit:

  • Experience in more than one technology stack
  • React, Vue, Angular or similar
  • JavaScript with ES6 or TypeScript syntax
  • Babel, TypeScript, Flow or similar
  • React context, Apollo, Redux, Redux-sagas or similar
  • Consuming RESTful/GraphQL APIs
  • Focus on quality and doing things right

You get extra points, if you:

  • Code in your spare time
  • Have Github or a similar account with sample code
  • Have Open Source development experience

What’s in it for you?

  • Work with one of the largest and broadest IoT/telematics data sets in the industry
  • Be part of a journey to develop the car owner experience of the future
  • Competitive salary and pension scheme
  • Flexible working hours and location
  • Employee discounts on cars (incl. leases and repairs) for yourself and your family
  • Company car package
  • Laptop of your choice
  • Cheap lunch scheme
  • All the snacks and sodas you can consume
  • Strong open source commitment
