We're looking for developers to work remotely focused on JavaScript, passionate about the product and building great experience for millions of users.

You like the good parts of JavaScript. You love building things that are fast without darting all over the screen. You think JS can improve the user experience without replacing the entire frontend. You love solving difficult problems with elegant, practical code. You love the challenge of being part of a cadre of UI-savvy experts amidst an organisation that's 50% backend developers.

On the back-end side, our software is based on Java (and other JVM technologies), but many of our developers love other languages too. We actively debate best practice and push for improvements. Change is driven by individuals. We have 20% Time and quarterly hackfests that let you show off your creativity and passion.

If you would like to:

  • Build kick-ass JS components and user interfaces for world-class products
  • Deliver compelling functionality in performant code
  • Invent and prototype new features and interactions you can actually ship
  • Are able to spend your first month in our office in Gdańsk as a part of the onboarding process (preferably 6 weeks)
  • Are able to be physically present onsite at least once per month for at least 3 consecutive days (Spartez covers travel costs within Polish borders).

Then we are the place for you!

What you will do:

  • As part of our development team in Gdansk, Poland, you have the chance to be the part of one of the most exciting, challenging and satisfying agile software development projects; working with people from Sydney, San Francisco, and Amsterdam.
  • Design and implement web applications, specializing in the user interface of the product, as well as frequently working with backend server technologies
  • Perform hands-on software development tasks, such as prototyping, feature development, bug fixing, unit testing, and writing automated functional tests
  • Liaise with the product architect and developers on software design, dependencies, and code maintainability
  • Liaise with the UI designers on the design and implementation of interfaces
  • Provide time and size estimates for project tasks
  • Promote the use of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML5 best practice across the company

What we expect from you:

  • Extensive hands-on experience with modular and object oriented JavaScript
  • Strong software design skills
  • Good knowledge of frontend technologies such as HTML5, CSS, LESS and templating technologies (Handlebars, Google Closure Templates, or similar)
  • Experience in building Ajaxified web apps - ideally single web page apps
  • Passion for usability, efficiency and performant code
  • Excitement for the latest trends in web applications
  • Initiative and the ability to work independently to drive development
  • Excellent communication skills with fluent English (both spoken and written)

Preferred skills:

  • Experience with JavaScript frameworks such as React, Backbone.js, Angular.js, Ember.js, etc.
  • Experience with jQuery
  • Experience in agile software development methodologies such as XP and Scrum
  • Some experience in Java frontend technology (from templating languages to test automation)
  • The desire to learn more about new languages and frameworks
  • Proven ability to co-operate with members of all-remote teams

Typical experience:

  • Senior: 5+ years in a professional front-end centric web development role
  • Mid: 2 - 5 years in a professional front-end centric web development role

What we can offer you:

  • Thousands of interesting customers including NASA, Sony, and the United Nations
  • The opportunity to grow around people from Gdansk, Sydney, San Francisco, and Amsterdam
  • Impact! Atlassian tools are used by millions of users around the world
