Senior Frontend Platform Engineer

Kiwi.com is an important player in the travel industry with modern technology and a unique product. To support the growth and new innovative initiatives we are looking for a Frontend Engineer who will have an important role in shaping the future of kiwi.com frontends.

The Frontend Platform team has the mission to make frontend developers at Kiwi.com happy and productive!

Throughout Kiwi.com’s 9 years of existence, some of our frontend codebases have accumulated tech debt, and we help the feature teams deal with it. This time round, we take the time to solve the issues at hand more sustainably, however complex or difficult they may be.

    What’s it like to work with us?

  • We strive as much as we can to maintain a consistent, stable and performant tech stack across teams to increase team velocity, ease team mobility and lower maintenance burden.
  • Through sharing knowledge and educating frontend developers on libraries, tools and best practices, we strive to steer everyone towards the same vision.
  • To allow feature teams to focus on delivering features for our customers, we maintain common functionality for our frontends and bridge the gap when it comes to infrastructure.
  • We often write software design documents to shape our plans and get buy-in from other stakeholders.
  • Communicating with people is indeed a big part of our job.
  • Finally, we’re always on the lookout for and stay curious about new technologies and practices that could improve our current codebases (and of course, we try and stay mindful of the pitfalls of jumping on the hype train…).
  • Our ideal colleague:

  • Communicates clearly with all the stakeholders.
  • Has knowledge of JavaScript ecosystem and modern practices.
  • Is an enthusiastic learner and mentor.
  • Values honesty and transparency.
  • Loves to get their hands dirty.
  • Has opinions and keeps an open mind.
  • Thrives in cross team collaboration.
  • Technology you will use:

  • React, Next.js, styled-components
  • Jest, Testing library, Cypress
  • Babel, ESlint, Webpack, TypeScript
  • Docker, Kubernetes, GCP
  • GitLab CI
  • Sentry, Datadog
