Frontend Developer (Index.co)

We're looking for a talented developer who can build beautiful, maintainable and blazing-fast front-end code, who also has a keen eye for design and user experience.

FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS

Index by TNW is a platform for startups, corporate brands and investors. We harness data on hundreds of thousands of companies to fuel growth and innovation around the globe by connecting innovative startups to corporate brands and investors. Online and offline, 365 days a year.

As a frontend developer, you will join a small and talented team with a lot of autonomy. You will contribute your knowledge directly to decisions regarding product development.

We're still a young project, so every member of the team is closely involved with the process of growing the platform. You are curious, eager to learn and able to provide insight not just on your area of expertise, but the product as a whole. You are enthusiastic about becoming a core part of the product team.

Your main responsibilities will include:

  • Design and implement new frontend functionality, pages and features from the ground up. The work involved is generally more interaction-oriented rather than slicing stuff, so JavaScript wizardry is a big plus.
  • Maintain the existing frontend code base that powers the Index web app.
  • Help out at other TNW projects, such as
    - TNW news - one of the world's largest online publications that delivers an international perspective on the latest news about Internet technology, business and culture

    - TNW conference, the homepage of our world-class events in Amsterdam and New York.

  • Contribute to the end-to-end lifecycle of features, from concept to deployment to metrics.
  • Participate in our discussions on product and architecture.

We offer:

  • Open vacation policy.
  • A substantial audience for your the products you'll develop.
  • A competitive salary.
  • Affordable lunch, snacks and very acceptable coffee.
  • An inspiring workplace in TQ with a rooftop terrace, bar, snack room, lunch playground, canal view and a hidden disco.
  • Relaxed, informal ways of working and sociable colleagues. Every week we have drinks with the other residents and there are plenty of events happening all year round.

  • A network brimming with influencers, talented geeks, and promising startups


You have:

  • Great understanding of frontend technologies: JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS. Ideally, experience with JS frameworks.
  • A keen eye for design and user experience. You're able to translate product ideas into fully functional features.
  • At least 2 years of experience in a similar role.
  • Experience in a fast-paced work environment. You ship quality code quickly.
  • You have a valid EU work permit and live in The Netherlands (or are willing to relocate).
