Äventyret seeks front-end developer

You love to code. And if you could choose, you would focus on the interface. You are really into smart interaction design and sleek form and follow the race between React, Angular and Vue with excitement. You have tested all three in your different repositories in GitHub. In your current team, your focus is on interfaces (HTML, CSS and JavaScript). You might design sometimes (when needed), but most of the time, you will take the outline of someone else’s ideas and transform it into code.  

Your home playing field is tools like Grunt/Gulp, Git, pre-compilers and diverse interface frameworks/JavaScript-library.

You can also say that you can check off the following five boxes:

  1. You understand the fundamentals of JavaScript and create high-performance, tight and sleek code.
  2. You are a master of CSS and appreciate the value of SASS, because it helps you reuse exact styles and componentify the interface.
  3. You will not overwork a prototype that should be discarded after a first usage test. And neither do you take shortcuts in production code.
  4. You have done at least one (successful) project in React or Angular 2
  5. You say that you are a front-ender, but if we are being honest, you are more of a Full Stack-er.  You just prefer that the user can take it on.  Are you good at Laravel or really good at (other) PHP? Sounds like we should meet.

Box fresh or experienced, it depends more on who you are

You don’t need to have many years of work experience, but if you have been around a while, then no doubt you can teach us a thing or two as well.

You can speak some Swedish. If you have only a little Swedish, then you will speak excellent English. You can express yourself in writing. You are self-reliant and use a calendar to schedule your work time. You have the flexibility to choose whether to work from the Äventyret office in Stockholm, or work from home at your cabin in the country (provided that you have an internet connection out there).

Perhaps you are not able to do everything we have listed above, but you can do a lot of other things. So, look at it this way: if you can check off 60% of the above (and are excited to learn the rest), then it would be a good idea to apply.

You may want to start immediately, but we are flexible if you have a long notice period with your current job.
