  • Build, deliver, and iterate to help scale projects

  • You understand the terms DRY and KISS

(you probably have more technical questions than the guy writing this sentence knows the answers to – if you’d like more specific information about what you’ll get to work on, our Head of Technology Santal van der Veen is super-friendly and always happy to answer questions about the role)

Requirements

What makes you a Champ:

  • 4+ of experience in Frontend development

  • You know your way with ReactJS ES6 and Redux

  • You bring expert knowledge and are extremely passionate about JavaScript

  • You can set up complex code architectures and have experience in building complex but scalable applications

  • Strong understanding of REST APIs and knowledge on how to interface with them

  • You’ve developed in teams and know your way in Git

  • Used to writing code in a clean and readable way

  • Professional proficiency in English
    You’re open to be based in the area of Groningen

What we give to you:

  • A group of energetic, multicultural and totally good-looking colleagues (over 20 nationalities in a team of 50 people!)

  • The opportunity to carve your own signature into the growth story of Hotelchamp, one of the fastest growing startups in Europe

  • As the old guy in Spiderman says, with great power, comes great responsibility – take control of your development and guide where you want to take your career within the company

  • Thank God it’s Thursday – Thursday drinks with the whole team and Thursday company lunch on us

  • Some of the most competitive but poorly skilled ping-pong players in the world – prepare to be challenged (and probably victorious)

What makes a Champ:

You might have heard a lot of things about working in a start-up. Honestly, we’re guilty of some of them – free drinks, a young team with funny accents from all over the world, and at least one of our developers has a beard. And also like a lot of start-ups, we’re growing super fast – we’ve quadrupled our team within a year, and like a cheetah on a skateboard going down a hill, we’re only going faster. So what makes Hotelchamp different to other startups? The short answer is how we treat you. We celebrate the individual success of each and every employee, we’re just as interested in your development as our own, and we’ll absolutely push you to your limits – but never too far. We know that our company is only as good as the people who work here, so we only hire the best and the brightest. Because that’s what it takes to be a Champ.
