Development 32-40 hours a week Wijchen, NL or hybrid

We’re looking for a senior JavaScript developer to help us expand our content analysis tool and other JS features we have in store for 2020 and beyond. We’re looking for someone who’ll take the lead in these projects and teach us a thing or two about JavaScript development. You utilize design patterns and coding principles like SOLID and TDD.

Who are you?

  • You understand event-driven programming and have experience with:
  • ES6 and build tools like Webpack or Browserify is required.
  • building and maintaining a JavaScript application in a production environment is required.
  • React + Redux or other JS frameworks like Angular, Ember or Backbone is a plus.
  • RESTful APIs is required.
  • GraphQL is a plus.
  • functional tests and related frameworks such as Nightwatch.js or Zombie.js is a plus.
  • Living in the UTC -1, UTC, UTC 1, UTC 2 or UTC 3 time zone is required.

Our JavaScript libraries and tools include React, Redux, React Router, Styled Components, Yarn, Jest and Lodash. We are also planning to switch to TypeScript for some of our projects. Besides JavaScript, we use WordPress, PHP, git, GitHub, PHPUnit, Grunt.JS, GlotPress, HTML and CSS (SASS). If any of this is new to you, that’s fine. We’re looking for fast learners who pick up on new technology quickly. For this position, we require your professional and intellectual capacities to be of higher professional education or academic level (hbo/wo).

What we're offering

  • A challenging job in a fast-growing, dynamic, ambitious and international atmosphere. Working at a company that impacts the web.
  • 25 vacation days (on the base of 40 hours). Next to that, you’ll get five volunteer days which you can spend helping out at the local soccer club for example. Or to supervise a school trip of one of your children.
  • You’ll be able to spend 10% of your salary on education.
  • We have a great pension plan, which is fully paid by Yoast.
  • Exercise and stay fit! We have our own gym and a personal trainer!
  • We have a really fun (slightly crazy) company culture with lots and lots of team building activities. The know-your-colleagues-quiz, lots of celebrations and LEGO-building days. Because of Covid a lot of these things are online now!
  • The opportunity to learn a lot in a short time, at one of the leading SEO companies.

The application process consists of three, maybe four, parts: an introductory job interview, one or two practical interviews, and a final meeting. These steps might take place on multiple days. A social media screening might be part of the procedure.
