Front End Web Developer - in-house position in Niš [CLOSED]

Full Time Negotiable

HTML5 CSS3 Javascript Advanced... ReactJS VueJS PHP Wordpress

Come and code for a FUN, FRIENDLY...and perhaps QUIRKY Wisconsin-based business that has been growing for the past 13 years. No coding skills required! Oh well, maybe just a bit!

Town Web and HejDev build and host local government websites all across the United States. We're one of the top five municipal companies in this industry. Because of our growth, we're looking to have you join us as a Front End Web Developer at HejDev’s office in Niš, Serbia.

Note that this job opening is for in-house position, no remote work applications will be considered.

About the Role of a Front End Web Developer

As a Front End Web Developer, you would typically be working in a small development team, making jokes and memes, but does some coding in VueJS or ReactJS, HTML, and CSS, and is super cool with creating WordPress themes. We have most of the stuff already designed, so your responsibility would be to transfer the design to code.

At first, your job would be mostly talking and chatting with Project Managers, Designers, and the rest of the team in charge of themes and overall UX/UI and primary design of Projects frontend. Our extended team is distributed across the world, so most of the communication would be done via Zoom and Slack.

What’s the catch?!

With exception to your “mad skillz” of making memes, we do actually require that you have a quite good technical background and profound knowledge of JavaScipt, HTML, and CSS technologies, also you have created and have nothing against the creation of WordPress themes and such.

List of "Must Haves"

  • Superb HTML and CSS knowledge. Basically, you are able to do it before breakfast, just after waking up.
  • Superb JS dev skills, e.g. VueJS or ReactJS. Having an active GitHub account for 3+ years is +++
  • Awesome knowledge of the WordPress ecosystem. What we really want to say is, you make the theme “during your breakfast time” and you push it to Staging.
  • You understand APIs perfectly, but also are with one foot in some kind of backend development, PHP or JS? A huge plus, brag about it!
  • Good knowledge of the English language, written and spoken.

Soft Skills

Since you won’t work directly with clients, your work-life at HejDev will include Zoom calls and direct meetings with other devs, Project Managers, and Salespersons. Well maybe sometimes with HR and President for some informal chit-chat, but we do not have a formal corporate structure, so these meetings would be short and informative.

On the other hand, we are looking for someone who is easy to work with, has no problems with dealing with deadlines, and would like to bring an extra mile to the team or projects by being proactive, and likes to take responsibility.

Work & Payment Details

This is a full-time job and it will be for 40 hours per week in HejDev’s office spaces. You would be employed with a Work Contract, all benefits paid. After 3 months of work, we could offer some extra perks, such as private healthcare.

The work would be done from the HejDev office, which is located at the premises of Electronic Industry of Nis, so that is why this job is primarily for people living in Nis.

A word about Town Web and your work at HejDev

Our customers are small towns, cities, and villages in the United States. Town Web has over 13 years of experience in building out websites for local governments, and has over 600 municipal web design customers, adding many new customers each month. We are chosen as their website provider because of our proven track record of delivering easy-to-use websites at an affordable price.

HejDev is Town Web’s related software company based in Nis, Serbia and we are a dev-centered software shop. We offer a fun working atmosphere and a wonderful corporate culture that is centered around helping each other out and solving technical problems for non-technical customers.

As far as the methodologies we have been using and are using, we really dislike the waterfall method, prefer Scrum, but are currently working in some really cool and new methodology called “Shape Up” made by the guys at Basecamp.

Here are some things you would be responsible for (guidance and training provided, of course):

  • Creating front-end code for websites and web applications.
  • Analyzing, troubleshooting, and resolving problems with customer websites and internal web apps.
  • Being involved in Project Cycles of development of the new and existing company products.
  • Creating a well-factored and optimized code put to our Git, versioned, and documented.
  • Making daily suggestions on making better digital products, both that are developed as internal, as well as customer-facing ones.
  • Being a proactive player, meaning that you would not always get a full list of instructions for certain tasks or even projects, and you would need to find the best practice to handle those.
  • It is not a requirement, but proficiency and experience in any Agile methodology is a plus.

Here are a couple of goals or KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) that you would be evaluated on:

  • How timely are new themes and frontend designs launched?
  • Problems solved last month.
  • Bugs per feature ratio.

Here are some traits we would like to have for our new Front End Web Developer:

  • You are proactive, not reactive.
  • You appreciate receiving clear instructions for tasks but you have a great deal of autonomy.
  • You enjoy fitting in and working with the awesome corporate culture that our company has.
  • You are a tech nerd/geek. You know how to code, but in the sense that you know how to use StackOverflow when needed!
  • You have previously had experience working as a back-end or a front-end developer.

Here are some additional considerations for the day to day job duties and what you can expect:

  • You'll start at 40 hours per week.
  • You can expect great communication from CTO and other devs, clear instructions, feedback, and help when needed.
  • You'll be paid monthly with pension and health insurance benefits covered.
  • Business hours are 9 AM to 5 PM Monday to Friday, weekends excluded.
  • We are committed to building a long-term relationship with you. Many people working for us have been with us for many many years.
