Front-end Developer De Persgroep

We’re looking for a talented Front-end Developer to join us at De Persgroep. 

On a daily basis, our content impacts millions of readers, through brands such as Trouw, AD, Volkskrant and Het Parool. Without our unique editorial system, used by our 1500 journalists, this wouldn’t be possible. 

What you’ll be doing

  • Deliver an article SDK, for both web and React Native
  • Design, implement, test, deploy and monitor an editor that is used to enrich articles (React)
  • Maintain the React Native codebase, as well as a technical roadmap (in collaboration with the app development team)
  • Cooperate with our Belgian colleagues on a regular basis

Who you are

  • Must have experience with writing production worthy, high volume web and native applications, as well as developing and maintaining an SDK and at least 3 – 5 years of experience in React and JavaScript
  • Knowledge of TDD, CI/CD, React Native, Node.JS and/or Typescript are a plus
  • Experience with visual regression testing and the rendering and styling of articles are a plus
  • Up to date of new developments and willing to share your knowledge, as we work with a team-oriented Agile mindset
  • Curious, eager to learn, open-minded and you draw energy from working in a high-tech and continuously innovating environment – as we’re switching to the AWS cloud

What we offer

  • A competitive, experience-based salary
  • A one-year or permanent contract 
  • 36-hour workweek
  • 12% in flexible benefits (of which 8% is holiday allowance)
  • A percentage of profit shares
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses  
  • 28 paid holiday days
  • An excellent pension scheme
  • An outstanding relocation package
  • Located in Amsterdam, Rotterdam or Antwerp
  • Fully paid functional technical training
  • The opportunity to work with the latest tech stack

The extras we offer

Working for De Persgroep means working for the biggest contender in the Dutch media landscape; giving you the chance to contribute to ‘the news of tomorrow’. Within our company, there is a lot of space for personal growth. We have our own in-house (technical) coaching program, in which you can take part and you’ll obviously receive an excellent pension scheme and a paycheck suited to your experience. There also are several ways to switch out conditions of employment, such as buying or trading vacation days or purchasing a bike with a tax advantage. When joining our company, you’ll receive a warm welcome. With an extended kickstart program and a buddy, who will guide you and help you get settled. A fan of extracurricular activities? Sign up for our ‘Persgroepies’. Prefer something active? Several different sports classes, such as a Bootcamp or (kick)boxing class, are also a possibility!
