Senior Software Engineer – Frontend

  • Freelance
  • Anywhere

Pleo

JSS (advanced)
JavaScript (advanced)
React (advanced)
It’s pretty fair to say that Frontend Engineers were criminally underappreciated until recently, and it wasn’t until something like the last 15 years that JavaScript really took off and grew into a full programming language.
It’s now hit a kind of renaissance; Mozilla made a phone that runs entirely on JavaScript; you can now write server side “backend” code in JavaScript in the form of Node.js; Google made Angular; Facebook made React; Microsoft made TypeScript.
We say all this because we still think that some people don’t see the beauty and complexity of Frontend, so we wanted to send a little bit of love, especially to our Senior Frontend Engineers….

An ode to our Senior Frontend Engineers
*clears throat* 
To us, you are like Leonardo da Vinci. A scientist, an artist, an engineer, a theorist, sculptor and architect. Out of your creative mind sprang a desire to understand how things work behind the scenes.
It’s a little like fractals in nature. There is a mysterious mathematical complexity behind them, but most people only see a pretty pattern. You, dear frontender, see the link between them. You are interested in the mathematics underneath the beauty, you want to understand why the mathematics produces something that is beautiful, and you have appreciation for the thing that is beautiful.
You tackle complex technical challenges and create elegant solutions for our end users. You work closely with our Designers and Product Managers to create the user experience – and you never just get handed a design without having key creative input. You constantly build reusable components for the entire system. You are excited by making a dropdown menu that solves for any kind of use cases we might want to create in the UI. You do all this not just by being a master of your craft, but by taking ownership and leading on large projects such as product launches. Mostly, we look up to you and learn from you, because you set the standard for the team, not just in code but in culture too.
In short, you blow our minds every single day

The actual job post part:
We are looking for Senior Frontend Engineers who don’t just know how to build frontend code, but who can apply the perspectives of reusability, scalability, and maintainability. Because despite the elegance of a visual design that the user may see, it can get pretty messy behind the scenes. So if for you the car should look as elegant under the bonnet (hood, we may have a UK/US debate on our hands here!) as it does on the outside, read on for the hard skills and requirements bi
You know your way around:
  • Modern JavaScript, CSS and Web APIs
  • Component-based, declarative UIs (we use React)
  • Accessibility in web apps
  • CSS-in-JS (we use styled-components)
  • Rendering and design systems (we use Telescope)
  • Linting and testing frameworks (we use Jest + RTL and Cypress)
  • Static types (we use TypeScript)
  • Data fetching and mutations (we use SWR)
  • Tooling for frontend teams and shared component systems (we use Storybook)
  • Internationalisation/i18n (we use LinguiJS)
 
Your colleagues say you
  • Work in English with ease (it’s our company language)
  • Never stop being curious and love learning about new languages/ frameworks/ working styles
  • You keep track of your promises – at least your JavaScript ones
  • Accidentally start sentences with npm because you’re so used to typing it
  • Evangelise ES6, ECMAScript 2018, ES2022, or know better than we do what the newest standard is
  • Have experience solving complex technical challenges at scale
  • Ensure a high bar for quality and reliability on your team
  • Coach others on your team to help them develop as engineers
  • Advocate for a more thorough code review process than a quick scroll to the bottom of the page and a “LGTM!”
  • You don’t just write code, you help to design the overall solution
  • Would be a person that they would actually like to have a coffee with (virtual or not)
  • Somehow find a way to debate the merits of server vs client side rendering in that aforementioned coffee chat
 

Show me the benefits!
  • Your own Pleo card (no more out-of-pocket spending)*
  • Ability to work remotely (anywhere between the east coast of the Americas to European timezones)…
  • …or onsite if you want to (Copenhagen, London, Berlin, Madrid or Stockholm)
  • Trips to somewhere nice, for team camps (both company-wide ones and team-specific ones)
  • Investment in learning & developing (just check with your team for what’s reasonable, we don’t have set budgets)
  • A ​​2500€ annual flex benefits package (maybe you want to buy additional holidays, pay the gym, book a professional coach or pay part of your MBA – completely up to you!)
  • Paid parental leave – we want to make sure that we’re supportive of families and help you feel that you don’t have to compromise on the family due to work
And here are some other nice things that we do
  • Catered lunch when you work from our HQ and London offices
  • 25 days holidays (annual)
  • Loads of weird and wonderful niche communities to join in the company (we’re talking guerrilla gardening, liquids tasting, the Pleo band, learning to code initiatives, Pleo dinners, board games, that type of thing)
  • Wild enthusiasm and encouragement from us if you want to host MeetUps, events, etc – we’ll help (venue, food etc)

#LI-REMOTE
Why work here?
Working at Pleo means you’re working on something very exciting: the future of work. Through fintech we’ve seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending. Based on some pretty amazing Series C-round investment in 2021 we think we’re onto something big.
So, in a nutshell, that’s Pleo. Today we are a 500+ team, from over 54 nations, sitting in our Copenhagen HQ, London, Stockholm, Berlin, Madrid, Montreal, or Lisbon offices – and quite a few full-time remotes in 22 other countries! Being HQ’d out of Copenhagen means we’re inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance. If you don’t work in the office with us we’ll help you get up the best remote setup possible, and will fly you in for our amazing team camps ✈️
Things to look up about us
Sometimes, we win awards
If you want to know how we hire company-wide, there’s a post on our blog.
Or have a sneak peek into what happens when get together for Pleo Team Camp on our YouTube
Check out what we think about the realities of working remotely on our blog.
No one says it quite like our customers. Hear what they have to say this week on Trustpilot.
Also, check out Glassdoor if you’d like to hear about us from other people.
PS. we treat all candidates equally: If you are interested please apply through our application system – any correspondence should come from there! Our lovely support isn’t able to pass on any calls/ emails our way – and this makes sure that the candidate experience is smooth and fair to everyone
