Our goal is to make professional video communication simple and empathetic, and you get to bring that vision to life! ๐Ÿ™Œ

As a frontend engineer, you will join one of our two cross-functional teams working on the core cofenster product โ€” either on the video creation process, or on the growth-related topics.

You will be working on a mix of exciting new feature development (including documentation and tests) as well as ongoing maintenance work such as technical debt management and refactoring on our core platform.

  • Contribute to bettering the cofenster codebase by organizing refactoring and suggesting improvements
  • Actively champion the move towards a more accessible product, enabling everyone, disabled people included, to use cofenster
  • Develop and iterate on typically less valued disciplines such as security, accessibility, testability and performance
  • Work closely with other disciplines and teams such as designers and customer support representatives

What you should bring

  • At least 5 years of experience in frontend engineering, ideally more on the front of the frontend (HTML, CSS, accessibility, interface designโ€ฆ)
  • Proficiency or good understanding of JavaScript and TypeScript, as it is used from frontend to backend, as well as part of infrastructure
  • Advanced knowledge of digital accessibility in order not only to bring it onto our product, but also to champion it in engineering and raise awareness in the company
  • Experience with frontend automated testing in order to contribute to the development of our QA pipeline (for instance Jest, Cypress or other testing frameworks)
  • Ability to work efficiently in an agile team, ideally with some experience having worked on a SaaS product before

What we offer

  • An extraordinary culture of fun, trust, and achievement! ๐Ÿฅณ ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ…
  • Competitive compensation package based on your individual experience
  • Quick professional growth opportunities based on your own interests and strengths
  • A real hybrid culture: come to the office if and when you wish
  • For those willing to join in the office, we offer a modern office in the heart of Hamburg, with a world-class barista and around-the-clock supply of fruits, coffee, tea, and snacks
  • 30 vacation days a year
  • A MacBook Pro, as well as home-office equipment for those working from home
  • An Urban Sports Club membership (you can find the details under urbansportclub.com)

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because itโ€™s the right thing to do, but because it makes cofenster stronger. ๐Ÿš€

We call this the cofenster way of doing video.
