Experienced front-end developer

As a front-end developer, you do your tasks while catching up in the weekly Google Meet team hangout.

During the development of the newest Spend Cloud version in Vue, you talk to the other members of team Normalo’s about daily life. Are you stuck in web development or with remodeling your house? Your team is there for you!

What does a day as a front-end developer look like at Visma | ProActive?

Together with three other developers, you as team Normalo’s are responsible for the front-end development of the Spend Cloud. Your team has the responsibility to create the newest version of the Spend Cloud AND come up with a new team name. Tom, Diogo, and Marijn look forward to brainstorming with you about it. 

You start your day whenever you like, as long as you’re ready for the daily stand-up at 09:45 (Dutch time). You go over the planning and problems during this short meeting. Short and few meetings are the rule rather than the exception with the Normalo’s: meet only when needed and make room for socializing. On a daily basis, this means having one retrospective meeting per two weeks, semi-regular refinement meetings, and a weekly Normalo’s hangout on tuesday. This optional hangout in Google Meet allows you to work together separately with your team. You can catch up while socializing, going over office gossip, and talking about your life if you want to. 

12:30: lunchtime. Balance is important, so don’t forget to take some time off and clear your head!

What does a front-end developer do at Visma | ProActive?

A front-end developer helps develop the newest version of the Spend Cloud. That means working on web development and user interfaces, implementing new versions of current features, and building the architecture of the new Spend Cloud. In our current phase, you will be working on the architecture to make content creation possible at a later stage. ‘Building the building blocks’ so to speak. It’s important to document your work in order to share knowledge quickly and easily in this process. 

Keep in mind that your job does not have to be limited to front-end development. You can start side projects if you like! Colleague Diogo also works on the Spend Cloud infrastructure for example, during the annual hackathon. Or you can collaborate with colleagues from other teams on specific projects. Better together!

What makes being a front-end developer at Visma | ProActive extraordinary?

  • You can start right away!
  • Never stop improving: you can expand your skill set just like Diogo if you want to. 
  • Keep growing: this job opened up because Macha grew towards a product owner position. Not a usual career move, but we gladly discuss your ambitions! 
  • You decide when you start your day, as long as you are ready for the stand-ups. Working from home during the covid epidemic is no problem. Working at the office is also possible when adhering to the Dutch RIVM guidelines. 
  • A good salary with competitive terms of employment. Based on a 40-hour workweek, you have 26 days off and the possibility to buy up to 10 more. 
  • The Visma | ProActive vibe: parties, outings, fun,  friday (online) board game night, and colleagues to laugh at and with. A happy workplace makes people excel!
  • Don’t feel like updating your resume? We like receiving a showcase as well! Show us what you got.
