To support our ambition of being the no. 1 No-Code platform for citizen developers, we are looking for an Experienced Front End Developer who wants to help support the vision of our Forrester-licensed no-code application development platform.

As a front-end developer you will be working on our no-code platform, Betty Blocks! Examples of problems we are trying to solve include:

  • Enabling our no-coders to build fast & responsive single page applications without using a line of code.

  • Creating a generic styling framework which allows for reuse so our users are able to customize their page to their taste.

  • Building an interactions framework so users can show/hide elements on their page conditionally making it more dynamic.

To tackle these problems you will work in one of our international scrum teams, which consist of topnotch Front- and Back End Developers, designers and DevOps engineers. Each team owns a part of our product from front to back. Being responsible for the quality, scalability & design of their feature.

As a front-end developer you will work with your team to translate user problems & designs into code. On a day you can be writing Typescript, helping your teammates, improve the rendering performance of pages or doing one of our daily deployments (which is as simple as pressing a play button).

Who are we?

We see ourselves as a driven, energetic and hardworking group of friends, who are passionate about what we do: Making application development as easy as riding a bicycle. Our no-code platform enables organizations around the world to create applications that solve the problems they currently face in their unique situations.
