Intro

XING is the social network for business professionals with millions of members all over the world. Help us shape the future of work – for a better working life!

As an expanding social network, with a focus on bringing value to our customers, the front-end is the visual interface between XING and its users. All of our front-end applications are using a tech stack that is based on React and an internally built open source framework called Hops, that enables in-browser and server side rendering including routing, state management and communication with our back-ends. For this we are leveraging either Redux or Apollo GraphQL.

XING is now looking to welcome talented front-end engineers at all levels (from junior to senior) to join our 300 highly skilled, deeply motivated and dedicated engineers and product developers throughout our various locations in Europe (Hamburg, Barcelona, Valencia, Porto, etc.), sharing a healthy culture of learning from each other via pairing, communities of practice, joint hackweek projects etc.
