Frontend Developer

Job description

Looking for a meaningful experience in a fast-growing tech company with a human-centric approach? Join our amazing team to help grow the world’s most popular apps and games.

Who we are? 

AppTweak is the leading App Store Optimization (ASO) tool - think SEO but then for the app stores. AppTweak empowers 1,600+ mobile leaders - such as Amazon, Jam City, Yelp, and Adobe - to grow their apps and games with actionable insights in a simple interface.

Launched in 2014, AppTweak has grown to a team of more than 75 people with offices in Brussels, San Francisco, Tokyo and Bengaluru. In April 2021, AppTweak raised a $22 million investment in series B funding. We’re gearing up for fast growth and are looking for ambitious individuals to join our team.


We are looking for an amazing Front-End Developer to join our second-stage rocket ship! 🚀


About the Role: 

You’ll be part of the Lead Generation & Customer Lifecycle squad and will be in charge of implementing visual elements and their behaviors with user interactions.
Working hand-in-hand with back-end web developers to build all client-side logic, you will also be bridging the gap between the visual elements and the server-side infrastructure.

What you will do:  

 

  • Develop new user-facing features

  • Build reusable code and libraries for future use

  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs

  • Find elegant solutions to usability problems

  • Optimize applications for maximum speed and scalability

  • Stay up-to-date on new Web technologies that will make AppTweak better, faster, and stronger.

  • Participate in code review, pairing, and other forms of knowledge sharing

 

Technologies we use

  • In the beginning, we wrote our frontend in BackboneJS and decided to move to React three years ago. 

  • Since then, we have built a Single Page Application based on React/Redux/Redux-sagas, written in TypeScript, with the standard tooling (Webpack, Babel, ES6, ESLint, and Prettier). 

  • To allow our frontend to consume our data, we built a set of services that interact with our API layer (REST APIS built on Ruby). 

  • Our infrastructure is based on K8s, and we have created a robust CI system to develop and deploy our code quickly. We deploy directly from Slack!

Requirements


What we expect from you:

Must-have

  • 2+ years of industry experience building fast and reliable web-based applications

  • You are fluent in English. 

  • Good understanding of asynchronous request handling, partial page updates, and AJAX

  • Proficient in browser rendering behavior and performance

  • Knowledgeable about modern Web technologies and excited to learn new ones

  • Proven track record in contributing and working with components library and design systems.

  • Strong entrepreneurial mindset: you're hands-on and autonomous. You find creative solutions to problems in a fast-moving environment. 

  • Team player: you enjoy working with others. You have a proactive attitude and you like to make things move forward.

  • Sensitivity to design in general and user experience

Nice-to-have

  • GitHub profile or link to open source work

  • Full-stack experience

  • You love food! 


What’s in it for you:

  • Flexibility in your work and opportunities for continuous learning and creative thinking.

  • Supportive and collaborative environment focused on personal growth.

  • Hybrid office/work from home policy.

  • 20 paid holidays per year + 12 days RTT on top of the fundamentals (meal vouchers, annual “éco-chèques”, hospitalization & group insurance, end-of-the-year bonus, etc.)

  • Fresh fruits, nuts, and snacks self-serve in the office.

  • 1 volunteering day every quarter dedicated to helping a Brussels-based organization.

  • Chance to discover new food recipes, because yes, we love food!

    2. An inspiring environment

  • Chance to connect with a variety of high-profile apps and games across different verticals.

  • A unique company culture based on 4 values: Learn, Play, Perform, Friendly.

  • A diverse team within a flat hierarchy. Altogether we speak more than 15 languages.
