Intro

Our challenge is to build, adapt, and create the biggest education search platform, bringing transparency and reliability to international education. We’re building a platform that is valuable to students and agile to the demands of international education. Our focus is therefore fully student/user-centred. We place all our energy on knowing what students want, allowing them to be the main architects of our portals.

To support Studyportals‘ global expansion we are significantly expanding our Engineering team. The team currently consists of Front- and Back-end Engineers, Dev-Ops as well UX Designers, split over multiple scrum teams.

As Front-end Engineer, you will play an important role in enhancing and safeguarding the usability of both our student-facing websites and our internal tools. You will be responsible for taking new ideas from their initial concept to a final implementation by combining our RESTful API with your knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, Service Workers and other JavaScript powered technologies.

You will work in a multidisciplinary scrum team of about five people, cooperating with our graphic designers, UX designers and our Marketing- and University Value teams in order to realize the best implementations possible. In order to measure our effectiveness, we are currently focusing very hard on our continuous deployment process. Adding value to our users with every iteration should be top of mind!
