Wanted Front-end developer
Junior Frontend developer
Full time 38h/week
EPIC is looking for a motivated junior front-end developer to join the ranks of other like-minded pixel lovers.
Does the idea of making great project come to life get you excited? Helping convert great design into unique user experiences? If so, you might want to hear what we have to offer you.
Who you are
Front-end development is at the heart of our creational process. It’s the magic that turns a tool into an engaging user experience.
In other words, you’re someone who believes that being “good” isn’t good enough. You strive for excellence and want to keep improving your skills.
Knowing how to code is required but remember that this is about working with a team, you will work hand in hand with the front-end team in place, adding value wherever you can while improving your coding skills. We need team players, not lone wolves.
You are Wise, Mighty, Visionary.
You will be supporting the agency’s front-end development on a wide variety of projects: interactive experiences, websites, web apps, games, etc. Your skills and thirst for constant improvement will be instrumental in bringing our projects to life.
- Experience and knowledge about the latest cool stuff in HTML and CSS and how to build things responsive.
- Some “playground” is appreciated (codepen, github, …)
- Comfortable with CLI.
- Curious and fast learner.
- Good UX and Design sensibilities.
- Able to work in-house in Belgium (we’ll provide beers and waffles) and speak English or French fluently.
Your daily job
You take part in daily meetings with the team and help find solutions to usability issues. You communicate and share your knowledge. You help sketch wireframes with the designers and convert them to prototypes in order to validate the concepts. Together with your peers, you find creative alternatives to meet the most demanding client’s constraints and craziest designers’ fantasies. You listen a lot and understand client’s business challenges. You think user, content, mobile first. You apply coding best practices and learn to write clean, modular and DRY code (you know what DRY means, right?).
Your work involves a lot of discussions with your lead front-end developer but also with clients and the community.
A winning personality and graciousness is a prerequisite for the job.
What we really care about
For this junior position, some coding experience as frontend developer is highly recommended. But more than that, we need someone who is a fast learner, always eager to contribute and to improve their skills.
At EPIC, no one works alone, never.
As is to be expected, decisions are made as a result of frank discussions with the lead front-end developer and with the team. Keywords of the decision process are: knowledge sharing, astute prioritization and continuous empathy.
You not only feel responsible for your work, but you are capable of learning from your team members, empowering your ideas with theirs and listening to their opinions.
You are proactive, you are here to improve our processes by contributing actively, make things move forward and you continually ask yourself how to fix broken things instead of waiting to be served.
At EPIC, we enjoy working in a friendly atmosphere and we’re very selective about the people we recruit. Hopefully you’ll be a good match and a nice addition to the team.
There are 15 of us.
Some of us love foosball, others hunt Pokémon, photograph the trembling grasses at dawn, breed chickens in their garden, walk in socks in the office, run up and down the Alps or practice yoga every Thursday…
>They are now part of your life, they talk to you not only at the coffee machine, they know you and make you a better person.
