To support StudyPortals‘ global expansion we are significantly expanding our development team. The team currently consists of Front- and Back-End Developers as well UX Designers, split over four scrum teams. Watch the video below for an impression of a recent Hackathon which we organized, and check out your new colleagues!

Position

As Front-End Developer you will play an important role in enhancing and safeguarding the usability of both our student-facing websites and our internal tools. You will be responsible for taking new ideas from their initial concept to a final implementation by combining our RESTful API with your knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

You will work in a multidisciplinary scrum team of about five people, taking input from our graphic designers, UX Designers and our Student- and University Value teams in order to realize the best implementations possible. In order to measure our effectiveness we are currently focusing very hard on our continuous deployment process.

On a typical day, you will start the day with your scrum team, discussing your progress and plans for that day so that everybody is up to date. Then, you work on your stories and tasks (Scrum methodology), you discuss with your teammembers whenever you need help. There is always room for sharing new ideas whenever they pop up! You test your work via the device lab and make changes when neccesary. For lunch, you join your colleagues in our own SP Cafe, after which you can play some games to relax and recharge, for example for our bi-weekly development demonstration session to the whole StudyPortals team.
