Why is a Frontend Engineer important at Busuu?

While native mobile apps are a massive growth area for us, the majority of our users still experience Busuu through the web. It’s also our longest serving platform, having been at the core of the Busuu experience right from the start. It is incredibly important for us to continue building a great web user experience, both now and into the future, and to find people that are passionate about web technologies in general.

As a Front-end Engineer you’ll be responsible for all the web products at Busuu, you’ll be responsible for the code, UI and UX of multiple projects. Our team is still small enough that every engineer makes a massive difference.

At Busuu, there’s no server side rendering, our Backend Engineers provide APIs and as Front-end Engineers our daily work is to interact and implement such technologies in the client.

What does a Frontend Engineer do at Busuu?

We trust in people who have a desire to learn and share, we’re looking for Engineers who want to make a difference by creating smart and reusable components. You’ll be working on implementing new features working in sprints. We’re looking for people who have passion for the user (UI, UX) but also who are interested in performance and code scalability.

You’ll be working in the Web Squad with Engineers from different backgrounds, and you should be willing to adapt and suggest improvements to an existing codebase. We’ve got many features planned for 2021 and we’re looking for people who have experience with Single Page Applications, working on real time interactions and creating friendly user experiences. You’ll have the full support of the rest of the Web Squad, allowing you to lead projects with an experienced team of senior engineers to guide and learn from.

You’ll be working closely with Product Managers and Designers on our key web platforms. Our Homepage Platform is our static file based CMS, serving as the entry point for all users as well as our payments platform. Once a user is authenticated, they’ll use our single page Webapp to learn their chosen language, update their profile, access social features, and more. 

To deliver all these disparate platforms, we use many different technologies and we’re always looking to use the right tool for the job. We currently work with Webpack, Babel and Gulp in our Front-end environment and we widely use ES6/ES5 across all projects. We’re big fans of Sass for the CSS and we're using React for view rendering. We’re constantly evolving our code and we’re looking for motivated developers to join us on this journey.
