Front-end Developer

A cross-over between Alan Turing and Bob Ross


Full-time / Part-time · Amsterdam

Arguably the most important part of any digital experience is what the user actually sees: the front-end. It’s what you create. Doing this well is not just a matter of having great programming skills. You also need to have a keen eye for aesthetics, composition and motion concepts. You have to be skilled, smart and creative at the same time. Like a cross-over between Alan Turing and Bob Ross.

Our development team is an integral part of a much bigger creative team. Working directly with graphic and motion designers, UX specialists, creatives and projects managers we have technology and creativity go hand in hand to achieve greatness. Some standard buzzwords for this role would be: hands-on, team player, communication skills and client facing. Which basically means that, next to the actual front end work, we also expect you to collaborate seamlessly with the team and present your work to clients.

Every project is unique. But really. Our experiences, campaigns and services are generally very visual but often also feature an elaborate architecture and business logic. With your team you’ll be working on polished web experiences, WebGL shaders, games and mobile solutions (a.o.) for brands like Polestar, Philips, Lotus, T-Mobile, Ahold Delhaize and Red Bull.

Also (we might be biased on this) we have a very unbiased culture. We’re a diverse group of people with very little ego but a shared drive to create great things. Our Executive Technology Director Erik Rave puts a lot of emphasis on the atmosphere in the team, making sure that everyone can grow and do their very best work in an environment that is safe and open.

About us 

Surely you already peeked at our site and Insta, but here’s our formal introduction copy: code d’azur is a global digital brand and experience company based in Amsterdam, with offices in Austin, Barcelona and Dubai. We design and build digital products, ecosystems and campaigns that stand out, fit in. By combining creativity, strategy and technology, we make the possibilities of tomorrow work for brands today.

What we offer

Pioneers

We are nothing but our people. You will join a team of trained talent that closely collaborates to design platforms, services and campaigns that become industry defining and raise the bar across the field. This is our goal as a company.

Fun

People that join Code tend to stay. And those who do leave tend to come back. We have legendary pub nights, winter sports adventures, our own game team and great office drinks. Never trust marketing copy. So perhaps just check in with someone you know that already works at Code.

Flexibility

There's more to life than work alone. When you work is up to you. You will have deadlines, you will have meetings and you will have to collaborate with other teams, but when you don’t you’re free to work whenever you want, wherever you want. Go swim in the morning or pick your kids up from school in the afternoon. As long as the work is done, we’re all good.

Growth

There’s a lot of opportunity to grow. The company has branched out to Austin and Dubai relatively recently and doubled in size over the past two years. There’s growth and you’ll be part of it. Courses, events, training, all the stuff you need to do to make yourself better, we can help.

Fame

You’ll work for industry leading brands like Polestar, Philips, Lotus, T-Mobile, Ahold Delhaize and Red Bull. The industry defining work you’ll make will be seen, touched, used and shared by millions of people.

Perks
