Frontend / Full-Stack Web Developer

Job description

Routinely is building a personalised skincare brand powered by technology for the modern consumer. We are based in Amsterdam, live since mid-May 2021 and backed by a global leader in cosmetics (Beiersdorf) and a venture capital fund. We are looking for stellar talent to complete the core team as we build out the brand and business. This is a unique opportunity to join a well-funded, early stage company and collaborate closely with the founders to create a visionary product that will change the way in which we care for our skin.


We are looking for a frontend/full-stack web developer with 3+ years experience to bring complementary skills to our in-house development team. You will be working with us on perfecting our website's e-commerce experience where there is a big accent on visuals and esthetics. Most of our traffic is mobile, so responsiveness is key. Together we will be figuring out what the future of our stack will be. As we are growing as a company, so it will happen to our tools, so flexibility and creativeness will play an important role


We are flexible in terms of the candidate's skills on the frontend-backend spectrum. This person will join our existing and growing in-house product development team, and in the end we'll need to have all disciplines in house. It's all good if the candidate has 70/30 frontend/backend skills, or 50/50, we'll 'fill the gaps' with our next hires.  


The position is full-time, on-site and available directly at our headquarter office in Amsterdam. Of course, depending on covid measures, a large part of work can be done from home.


What you'll be doing

  • Develop our Next.js frontend and consume the Shopify API (headless), as well as integrate it with our CMS (Sanity).
  • Improve the workflow and build process (CI & CD) via Github Actions and Vercel.
  • Connect with our REST API and third party APIs.
  • Review the technical architecture of the platform and make the right choices on technologies we should (not) use.
  • Work together with our existing in-house product team to build the right thing. You will be encouraged to bring your own vision and ideas.
  • Contribute to a shared workflow and engineering culture. We pick the best parts from domain-driven design, Extreme Programming, SCRUM, Kanban, Holocracy, Lean Startup and ShapeUp and make it our own and better every iteration.


We offer you...

  • The chance to be part of a young and ambitious international team, working with the tech you're passionate about.
  • A role in a fast growing company, where you can contribute strongly to our stack, workflow and culture.
  • Flexible working conditions, off-sites, hackathons, conferences, room for personal development and lots of freedom.
  • The opportunity to be part of an ever-growing area of e-commerce, in particular the skin care and hyper-personalisation niches.
  • Unlimited holiday days. Yes, really!
  • Apple MacBook Pro laptop.
  • Amazing office at the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam.
