Senior Frontend Engineer B2B

Full-time · Portugal, Netherlands · Remote or hybrid

Our purpose

Otrium is a purpose-led business – we see a future where all clothing is worn.

Every year, billions of items are produced globally but are never sold. Clothing goes unworn and often ends up in landfills. This is a huge waste of creative energy, labor, natural resources and investment. Otrium is changing fashion from the inside out: we are an online fashion outlet marketplace and we tech-enable designer brands to find an owner for every item they produce.

Our global business

Founded in Amsterdam and headquartered in the cloud, Otrium also has hubs in New York and London. As a digital-first company, we work around the globe and don’t need to limit our HQ to one location or a single hub. We want to ensure our O-team can work in a way that best fits their needs, whether that’s remote-first, hub-first, or hybrid (50/50).

Otrium is also committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse community of employees with a strong sense of belonging. We believe we are bettered by all forms of diversity, and take pride in working with talent from every walk of life and corner of the world. In the spirit of inclusivity, qualified applicants will be considered without regard to age, ethnicity, ability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, or sexual orientation.

Here’s to freedom, flexibility, and global inclusivity!

Your impact

The best thing our engineers love about Otrium is the opportunity to impact the shopping experience of millions of fashion lovers. Developers are involved within the lifetime of the product, not only on the technical side.

Stability is a significant factor, but we do not hesitate to experiment and are never shy of building groundbreaking features to change the overall customer experience. We have a future-proof tech stack consisting of the latest technologies and are always curious to explore newer ones! Wanna join?

You will work with talented people from all around the world and use agile development principles. We love to help each other, and our power comes from the team game. We are a hardcore Agile team, always iterating and striving for a better, faster, and more scalable product.

You will take an active role in improving our tech stack and processes, and connecting with fellow FE peers in guild meetings to keep each other up to date with new developments in the market and best practices.

Your responsibilities:

The Senior Frontend Developer will be part of the Engineering Department, building the shopping experience for millions of customers across the world. Our platform is built in PHP and Node.js microservices and the frontend is in React. This is what you will be doing:

  • Coding: writing clean, maintainable, optimised, and scalable code
  • Writing unit and integration tests and collaborating with other engineers in code reviews.
  • Delivering on time: committing and deploying solutions within given time constraints
  • Owning: taking a proactive approach and ownership of the tasks. Monitoring the tasks on production and making sure everything runs smoothly and as expected
  • Improving: for any given task try to understand "the why" and suggest alternative solutions if needed. Improving the current setup and code to enhance performance
  • Sharing: having good, direct, and clear communication with your colleagues. Contributing to the culture of feedback to keep learning and preventing issues (code and teamwork) from becoming critical. Attaching careful attention to documentation.

You are...

You are an experienced Software Engineer, you know what it takes to deliver great code and you feel comfortable suggesting improvements to existing features and processes. You have a positive mindset and always think of solutions rather than problems. Thanks to that attitude you create a positive work environment for you and your colleagues. An environment where you deliver better code every day. Besides that you have:

  • You have 5+ years of experience with building applications in JavaScript
  • You have solid experience with React, HTML, CSS, and Typescript
  • Experience in designing and building large-scale React applications or applications with similar component-based UI libraries
  • Knowledge of unit testing frameworks
  • Experience with Agile
  • Experience with Graphql is a plus
  • Experience with Design Systems is a plus
  • Fluency in English

Our values:

Every member of the O-team uses our values in their everyday working lives. They act as our internal manifesto to help us think about how we act as a collective team, and they link directly to our mission: All clothing should be worn.
  • #Only together - We are a human business. We are empathetic. We are inclusive. We care about each other, our customers and partners. We know that developing innovative solutions in today’s fast-pace world is complex. It takes more than one person to succeed!

  • #Humble and Real - We are grateful, we are humble, we are open. We listen, we learn, we share. We’re modest and always open to the possibilities and different perspectives.
  • #We own it - We are passionate, high performing, we drive for output. We bring things home! We are agile and adaptable problem solvers. Prepared to fail and learn fast, we embrace and share mistakes so that we learn from them.
