PeopleDoc is searching for a Javascript developer to join our team. We are growing our frontend team to build the next generation of HR delivery services.

We strive to build a work environment in which you will be:

  • Working within a friendly, fast-growing, inclusive, progressive company

  • Collaborating with a team of talented designers and developers

  • Learning not only how to code but how to build a product

The successful candidate will be required to:

PeopleDoc is putting a lot of emphasis on User Experience and the software we’re building is every day becoming a greater engineering challenge. We’re organised in Feature Teams, every project is the result of the close collaboration of highly talented people, building APIs, infrastructure, design and UX in order to achieve the highest standards in software engineering.

As a frontend developer, your role is to give life to a product with the help of our design guidelines and our APIs. More specifically, your responsibilities will include:

  • Improving, reviewing and testing existing applications

  • Working with product owners, designers and back-end developers to build new applications

  • Maintaining the high level of the team by offering your perspective on the edgiest, trendiest technologies

  • Be a decent human being (that comes first, actually)

Competencies required:

We are looking for developers in all ranges of skills. We believe that, when provided with the correct working environment, every developer can thrive. We do not need someone to fit in a box, the challenges and scope of responsibility at PeopleDoc will be tailored to your experience and preferences.

HTML & CSS: decent knowledge

  • The Frontend Team and our UI designers collaborate to improve our UI framework to make it performant, accessible and customizable. You will need some proficiency in HTML and associated best practices (BEM, SASS, accessibility...).

JavaScript: the more the better

  • We are investing a lot of energy in the JavaScript framework Ember.js, but we have a number of plain JavaScript projects running in production. You’re a React developer? An Angular one? Great, we will show you why we went in that direction and we will train you to be a great Ember developer.

Tooling & Methodology

  • The frontend application are separated from the APIs they consume and are hosted on a public CDN.

  • We’re also doing Continuous Deployment: It only takes 10min for an accepted update of a project to go into production.

  • Even better, we’re doing Continuous Delivery. Impress us and tell us the difference.

Language & Location

  • Our head office is in Paris, but we are mostly a remote team, so we are open to candidates located across Europe. Knowing some French is a plus, because even if all of us are fluent in english, most of us are French. Obviously, as a member of an international company, you are required to be able to express yourself in both written and spoken English.
