You could describe us as fresh, driven, innovative and technical. We are always looking for a new challenge and full of energy! And we need it, because we have some amazing yet challenging projects to work on. At the moment there are 12 of us, almost 50/50 divided between our offices in Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
Everybody within the team has his or her specialties, and as we work closely with both design and back-end, we love that. One is a born creative, the other more technical. This balance makes our team strong. We don’t care if you are an intern, newbie or senior, everybody is equal!
This is our Front-end team. Want to be a part of it? Apply now on one of the vacancies!
We work agile by using the Scrum-method and we build our projects in React with Redux. When communicating with clients, we want to be in direct contact with them. Because we don’t work for clients, we work with them. We visit their offices for kickoffs, meetings, demo’s and retrospectives and show our progress in person. Although it’s a big responsibility, it’s also super cool to show at the Porsche HQ what you have build.
We don’t build static web pages but get the opportunity to build complex web apps and data structures. If we can’t fix something we look it up, if we can’t make it work we search for a solution. This way we grow fast, not only as a team, but also as individuals.
One of our current projects is a web application for a big grocery supplier. It’s a technical project for which we need to use all kinds of different technologies like React, Redux and server-side rendering. We never start building something we are always looking for the problem that we need to solve for the end user. Of course we want to use cool techniques but in the end adding value is more important!

FACTS & FIGURES
22 weeks (11 sprints)
(18000 Porsches in the Netherlands)
Being consistent from the basis is of utmost importance to a digital product agency like us. Therefore we started developing React-Prime, a React boilerplate ready to build extensive and modern web applications. We spent a lot of time doing research to project structures and industry standards, and connected these to our own preferences. Besides that we always aim to provide React-Prime with the newest and stablest techniques to ensure it's always up to date. We're now at version 6 and it has already been the basis of 20 of our project. You can say we're quite proud of it, so proud that we even decided to create our own logo.
As a Creative Developer, you are often building designs you got from a designer colleague. When adding a new element, you might struggle to get their size, margins, padding, positioning, spacing and all that, pixel perfect.
Code reviews, good communication, a happy team and working together: that’s what we find important. Besides that we are growing as a team by setting goals and keep raising our bar. We want to deliver perfect code, but above all we want everybody to feel good in the team. That’s why we rate how we feel during our front-end syncs. When it’s low we first solve that before we go on. If we don’t feel well, our projects won’t go well.
Staying on top of new techniques and innovations is key for us. But we see the difference between new technologies that are here to stay and hypes that will pass by in a couple of weeks.
We are eager in everything we do, with room for failure we learn and grow fast.
