We are looking for a Frontend Engineer (m/f/d) to play a leading role in the development of our front end (written in React) and our other front end interfaces written in Go. You will not only contribute maintainable code that meets best practices and high standards but also work towards enabling all of our engineers to contribute confidently towards evolving our interfaces into the most delightful way to manage Kubernetes clusters.


Giant Swarm is a fast-growing open-source infrastructure management platform used by modern enterprises. Our vision is to empower developers around the world to ship great products.


  • You will join us in making Kubernetes and our interfaces more understandable for our customers and end-users


  • Together with our teams and our UX designer you identify and pick up frontend stories from the backlog


  • You find opportunities for improvement, both user-facing and in the codebase


  • You will make sure that in one year our web interface is highly regarded in the Kubernetes community as the most beautiful and desired tool for managing clusters and applications


REQUIREMENTS

  • Javascript, TypeScript, and CSS excellence


  • Experience with React and Redux


  • You value craftsmanship, are curious, willing to learn, and don’t give up easily when things are hard or complicated


  • We (and our customers) are currently mainly distributed around Europe (around CET), thus, your main timezone should be somewhere between +/- 2 hours CET to ensure good communication.


  • You feel responsible for everything you ship and you pride yourself on clean code, precise documentation, and a perfect product.


Nice to have

  • Familiarity with the terminal and bash.


  • Experience with continuous integration and a git-based workflow.


  • Besides TypeScript, you have programming skills in a language of choice (not necessarily ours, but knowing Go or another statically typed language is a plus) and you already had first touchpoints with Kubernetes, Docker, and microservices.


  • Intimate knowledge of the whole web stack; you understand how all the pieces fit together (front-end, database, network layer, etc.) and how they impact the performance of your application.

ABOUT US

How working with Giant Swarm is like: 


 Every new team member changes the team. We love to learn from each other and we are looking for people who know things we don’t. 


  • Becoming part of Giant Swarm means that, by extension, you also become part of the Cloud Native community. We actively contribute to upstream projects and our quarterly hackathons will give you space to work on out-of-the-box projects. Occasionally, when we, as a team, want to fully focus on one project, we scratch all meetings and routines for a certain time to better focus during our hive-sprints(link to blog article).


  • Continuous learning is important to us - we foster this through bi-yearly personal development talks, a budget for training/certifications/coaching as well as regular feedback talks and workshops. Our teams are cross- functional and collaboration is key. 


  • Nothing crazy, but useful Basics: We don't count holidays but set a minimum number; You choose your own hard- and software; As a company that has almost, if not more, kids than employees, family-friendliness is crucial to us  and paid parental leave is a no-brainer; We pay monthly perks that cover your costs for working remotely; We meet twice a year as an entire company and (if possible) see conferences as an important place to catch up with team members; We aim to be fully transparent (finance, salaries) unless it hurts people and trust you, based on this to make the best decisions


We failed in exactly describing our way to approach important company elements that can be described with ‘buzzwords’ such as agile mindset, cross-functional teams, self-organization, value of the individual or trust & teamwork. However, we truly care about them, we live them and we constantly iterate on them. Some snippets about how we do this are posted in our blog but by far not all of them. 


Important note: We are not hiring job descriptions. We hire humans. :) We welcome applications from everybody, regardless ethnic or national origin, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation or age.
