Full-stack front-end developer
|Employment||Vast / Permanent Job|
We are looking for a Senior Developer who is passionate about startups and has shipped multiple digital products. Our ideal developer has a full-stack mindset with more focus on Frontend and the skills to coach others and take them along your development journey. As a team we become part of the (corporate) startups for which we build our digital products. We consider this the ultimate product development dream: building different kinds of high quality products and businesses for different kinds of industries .
About the job
Lots! This is an exciting opportunity to work with a variety of startups and ventures across all different industries. For the (corporate) startups we work with, you will help to build their company together with us. You'll work as a full-stack developer - since we do not believe in a strict separation between front and back end development. You understand the value of craftsmanship, but creating value for the users is what really matters. You will work in a multidisciplinary team in which business development, design, front- and backend development come together. We always work iteratively to quickly and often launch new versions of our products.
About the company
We are co-founders of business ventures in different industries
We make digital product for, and with, the (corporate) startups that we build, as well as make our own digital products.
We put focus on investing in startups.
We don’t only design and develop our products, but also work within other areas of a business (e.g. validation, marketing and branding) if that is what the business needs at a certain point in the project.
Design and development works closely alongside each other to reach the same goal.
We are T-shaped: everyone has their own expertise, but we also like to broaden our skill in adjacent skill areas.
Examples of products the organisation shipped
Hely - an app we built with NS where you can use various types of shared transport from different providers
Returnista - a retail retour solution available in more than 20 European countries
Tikkie - the #1 app in the Netherlands to easily reclaim and transfer money, built with ABN AMRO
Homerun - an app we built with ING to improve communication between contractors and clients during a home renovation
Hema 'Billenbox' - a diaper subscription service we built with Hema
FinancieelVitaal - a platform built with Zwitserleven that gives insight into your financial situation after retiring
APG Geldvinder - a platform we're about to launch to help the dutch workforce make the best out of their financial situation
Who are we looking for
You are proactive in communication and collaboration within a team
You have a curious mindset and are interested in how to develop valuable products, not just software
You enjoy to coach and mentor developers within your team
You’re open to input
You have hands-on experience with Agile/Scrum
You’re able to understand the impact of long term technical implications within a process and are able to explain these to colleagues
You’re able to strategically explain stack choices
You like to be involved in setting up architecture
You find it important to optimize and standardize processes and value code conventions
You’re able to communicate with the client within a project and are able to individually represent The Main Ingredient

Requirements and wishes
We like to pick ‘the best tool for the job’, this means we vary in our stack choices, with a natural focus on Frontend. Flexibility when it comes to the technology we use is really important as no two companies we build are the same. Node.js, React, React Native, GraphQL (Apollo) and Typescript are very common within our tech stack. However Ruby on Rails and Java are also no stranger to us. We make use of cloud services like CircleCI, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and DigitalOcean. Extensive knowledge of HTML/CSS is vital. We host our repo’s on Github, knowledge of CI / CD strategies and affinity with DevOps in a broader sense is quite desirable.
What do we offer?
Lots of variety in projects
Room for your own initiative and creativity
Fun and talented colleagues in an open and informal atmosphere
A work environment where you will learn a lot and where you are challenged daily
A unique position in a growing company where you can really make impact
