Senior Frontend Developer

Senior Frontend developer

Do you enjoy writing well tested, well thought out frontend apps? Do you enjoy working with GraphQL, Cypress and React? Come join our product team at Universal Avenue as a senior frontend developer and help us ship outstanding software.

What you will do

As a senior frontend developer at Universal Avenue you will be working towards setting good standards when it comes to testing and architecture of the platform.

Together with our team you will use our design system to build out new functionality while also improving existing features.

You will be responsible for working on the core parts of the platform that everyone else relies on when building features for our customers. 

You will work together with other frontend developers and designers to optimize processes and systems to enable us to deliver as good a product as possible.

  • Use Cypress / other testing tools to build and ship working software for our users.
  • Use React to construct re-usable, user-friendly components and put them to use throughout our platform.
  • Work with, and learn together with an international team while shipping software to users worldwide.
  • Do code/design reviews and other tasks to help improve the overall quality and stability of our platform.

Who you are

We look for people who are passionate about what they do best, people with a can-do attitude, lots of energy and a strong entrepreneurial drive. Together we can build a team that is motivated not only by profit but also by purpose, the feeling that the work truly matters.

You are a persistent and curious person that is encouraged to inspire change on a global scale and have dedication to something bigger than yourself. You are a standout colleague that can handle a high level of flexibility and freedom.

As a senior frontend developer you want to write code that is both well tested and well architected. You like when things work the way they are designed to work and you are also happy to help the team grow in skill by guiding less experienced team members towards best practices / tools.
