Front - End Developer

Job description


Who we are 

SIG is an ambitious global technology and consultancy firm delivering independent software quality assurance solutions. We believe we can make the world a better place by helping developers and organisations create better software. To accomplish this, our Software Development Team is continuously improving and expanding our Software Intelligence Platform. This is no small task: we are adding new analysis capabilities; we are growing and developing our frontends to become more intuitive, integrated and feature-rich; we are preparing our backend to scale and handle more code, faster.

 

How we work

As you might expect, we hold quality in high regard: we measure the quality of our code our process and our operations, more than you might be used to. We code, write tests, review, discuss and refactor if needed. We don’t just spit out features and move on to the next thing. We automate things wherever we can and throw out stuff we no longer need. In the long run, quality equals speed. Some data you may be interested in: we have a Java backend, Angular/Typescript frontend. Our pipeline starts in Gitlab which produces docker containers handled by Nexus deployed on a Puppet-managed cloud infrastructure. There.

 

Where you come in

We are looking to grow our team at a steady pace. What we do is pretty high end, so we can’t and won’t hire people in bulk. You’ll quickly find yourself responsible for significant chunks of our landscape. Our consultants are heavy users of our software. They are close by, and you’ll be working with them to get things right. You'll be doing some proper engineering, ranging from finding and solving performance bottlenecks to exploring new tools and technologies. And, once you're on to something, you'll talk about it in one of our frequent knowledge sessions.

 

What's in it for you?

You'll work on the software that runs our business, so what you do makes a difference. You'll work in a modern environment with modern technologies, and you'll work with great colleagues in a diverse team. Through our process and coding standards, you will become an even better coder than you are today. There's plenty of opportunities to educate yourself through online training, attending conferences and trying out new stuff during our bi-annual hackathon. On a lighter note, we have weekly Friday get-togethers, table tennis and fussball to provide some desirable distraction. In general, you have a lot of control over your schedule as long as you get the job done.
