Front-end Development at WeTransfer

Front-end development should be about beauty as much as it should be about performance excellence. That's why we believe in applying creative tech solutions as a means to interact with the user in a flawless manner. At WeTransfer, we work together making the user experience for millions of creative people, fast, reliable and efficient.

What you’ll be doing

You'll be responsible for the happiness of millions of users by implementing new features with your project team as well as ensuring our codebase stays nice and shiny. You will do this in a multidisciplinary team with passionate engineers and designers to deploy features to our users and the open source community.

Main requirements

Who we are looking for?

Above all else we value open communication and good teamwork to achieve a shared vision. We are looking for someone who has a passion for making beautiful web experiences and is highly skilled with HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Even though we are heavy users of React and Redux libraries, we prefer to work with people that understand that tools are just tools, not the main goal, and can find the most suitable solution for any given problem. We also think that quality is a must, and we set the bar pretty high, but a pragmatic approach is desired to an over-engineered solution. Making our users happy is our best quality metric.

Some Ruby experience would be handy as well. We don't build a wall around our APIs, so it's nice if you can dig into our backend systems and make the necessary changes to solve the problem. If you already have experience with other languages, but not Ruby, we will help you to learn.

With more than 40 million unique users a month, data is an important part of our decision making process. If you have experience with analytical tools, data collection, A/B tests, etc... we'd love for you to share it with us.

We value diversity and appreciate not everyone fits the nine to five template. This is a full-time position based in our Amsterdam office, but we are happy to consider applications for part-time or flexible schedules.

Minimum Qualifications

  • 3+ years experience building web applications in production
  • Experience working with RESTful APIs
  • Strong understanding of testing principles


We believe a diverse company is a better company. Whatever your story, we want to hear from you. Whatever your background, we’ll help you do your best work. All employees get an annual €1.000 personal development budget to learn new skills, or improve existing ones.

Our Amsterdam office sits right by the river in the east of the city; our LA team are based in Venice. With lunch, snacks and great coffee, we know how to keep our teams properly fueled. Our culture team designs a program of outings, speakers, workshops and fitness classes to get a good work-life balance. And that's not all, because we foster this with annual wellbeing budget of €750 and our weekly Friday drinks.
