Do you want to take part in shaping the vision for the future of Happy Socks’ eCommerce platform? We are now looking for a Junior Frontend Developer to join our Platform team and cover a parental leave during July 2022 - February 2023. Depending on your performance and overall business needs, there is a possibility of the role becoming permanent after the initial contract period. We are 180 colorful characters at Happy Socks from over 25 different countries and you’ll be working at our quirky HQ in Stockholm.
Tasks & Responsibilities
In this role you will be responsible for building the next generation of eCommerce tools and services, mainly working with frontend development tasks, creating components, implementing designs and working on third party integrations. We are a small team, so you'll have every chance to contribute to different parts of the company and codebase.
Your priority will be to design, build and maintain modern component-based frontend applications, with a strong focus on performance, usability and accessibility. Being an active member of a cross-functional organization and collaborating closely with other engineers and stakeholders is of course very important.
Requirements & Skills
- 1-2 years of of working experience
- Good understanding of UI design and UX principles
- Practical experience with headless CMS services
- Bonus: Experience in eCommerce, AWS and Git Version control
- Fluency in English, both written and spoken
To succeed and be able to grow in this role, we want you to have excellent problem-solving skills and ability to communicate your ideas in a clear and effective way.
But most importantly, we think you have the personality to fit a somewhat crazy, fun work environment where we believe in color and playfulness, a place where you can expect the unexpected and you are a source of creative weirdness.
Interested, and fitting into this profile? We would love to hear from you as soon as possible since we’re going through applications continually!
