We're currently looking for:

Frontend Engineer #

At Opbeat, we're building the next generation performance monitoring tools for frontend developers. That means that working as a Frontend Engineer at Opbeat is about scratching your own itch. We’re building the services that solve the pains we ourselves have and we dogfood everything. Opbeat was the first Opbeat customer.

Building great developer tools today is very much about making them look and feel good - in addition to the core functionality. It's important to us that our products look beautiful, are easy to use and fast to interact with.

The development team is small and highly skilled. This means the work each individual does has a high impact on our products and on our customers. We value productivity highly. Work hours are extremely flexible, meetings are kept at a minimum and working from home happens frequently. You'll have a lot of autonomy in technology choices, influence on product design, feature prioritization and so on. We aim to ship product updates every single week, and we ship bug fixes and improvements on a daily basis.

We have few managers and they are developers. You set your own deadlines.

Technologies we currently use:
We're in the process of replacing big parts of the main Opbeat application with React and Redux. We'd love your help.

We have a lot of custom graphs that are based off D3. Beautiful visualizations is something we get excited about. Our build system is just npm and webpack and our sites are hosted on AWS S3 and EC2.

Copenhagen
Working out of our Copenhagen office is required for this role - trust us, you’ll love it here - and practically everyone in Copenhagen speaks English.
Your co-workers are from all over the world - we speak English in the office.

We offer
Amazing free lunch, snacks and beverages every day, gym membership, awesome office, a monthly hackday, competitive salary/equity package and the possibility of working for one of Europe’s most promising and well funded tech startups.

About Opbeat
Our vision is to fundamentally change how developers operate the apps they build. We help development teams by providing smart, fast and simple tools that can be set-up in minutes.

We’re a small team of ambitious friends that all believe we can change stuff, if we do it together. We mainly work out of brand new office in wonderful Copenhagen.

Our investors include Mike Krieger, Andreas Ehn, Andrew McCollum and Balderton Capital.

We're looking to fill this position as soon as possible, so e-mail me today and let's have an informal cup of coffee or a skype call:
