Frontend Engineer

Berlin, Germany

Frontend Engineer

At JustWatch (www.justwatch.com), we are striving to become the world’s largest movie and TV show streaming guide, with a goal of over 100 million monthly SEO visits. We are looking for a motivated frontend developer with a hands-on mentality to support us in reaching this goal.

Curiosity, drive, and passion are the core ingredients we are looking for. We only want people who are willing to constantly learn through challenging themselves and others, and love getting things done.

On our team, we are constantly questioning everything and love challenging goals. We prioritize learning and aim for excellence in execution. We believe in the 80/20 rule and try to apply common sense and pragmatism to everything.

Our stack

We are working with Nodejs / Vue.js / Ionic / Capacitor / Typescript / GraphQL stack for both our web and mobile apps - while our micro-service backend architecture is written in Go and runs on Kubernetes.
Our webapp is SSR that requires more care and love than a normal SPA. Knowledge of best practice for core web vitals is also a big plus.
We developed our TV app with React Native.
We are currently migrating our Mobile app to React Native that means Ionic and capacitor will soon to be gone.

Your role

  • You will work on building A/B tests, developing features, increasing the observability of the website and creating landing pages
  • You will support the SEO team in concepting, prototyping and developing new features, iterating on existing ones, all while constantly improving the existing codebase to ensure high maintainability and extensibility
  • You will work on the general SEO friendliness of our website and ensure a high level of technical SEO compliance with our Head of SEO

In addition, for this particular role we are looking for:

  • Solid knowledge of 2+ years in Frontend engineering
  • Experience with a modern JS framework and ideally worked with TypeScript and/or Vue.js before
  • Someone with a side project/startup (failed or successful) or entrepreneurial spirit
  • Ability to work in a cross-functional team, closely collaborating with other Frontend Developers, Backend Developers & Product Managers
  • Fluent English
  • If you feel like you are missing some of the hard skills – don’t worry, we are hiring for the attitude, values, and personality.

We have started to slowly get back to our new offices at the historic Backfabrik, where we will work in a hybrid mode. If you do not live in Berlin, we provide relocation and visa support but are not a remote-only company.

We embrace our entrepreneurial responsibilities. Through our 6-figure environmental and social impact budget, we offset every employee’s carbon footprint, give back to the community, support causes that matter, and have recently implemented a well-being and mental health program.
