Description

Whitespectre is a product-centric, technology consultancy for both vc funded start-ups and large companies across the US and Europe. As long-term partners to our clients, we’ve played a critical role in their growth- both through the products we co-create and the expertise and processes we bring. We’re also a product incubator ourselves, with our own applications and growing b2b SaaS platform.


Proudly remote-first since 2013, we’re a close-knit team of 75, working in fast-moving, agile pods to solve interesting technical challenges and drive real business impact.


What's it like to be a Frontend Engineer at Whitespectre?



  • Our frontend developers have the ability to make beautiful user experiences come to life. They can partner with UI/UX and are able to think like product owners- being able to advocate for code quality as a long-term strategic investment while knowing when to adapt a more start-up mentality to deliver rapid business value. They can go full-stack when needed to make the frontend functional, but their passion is to stay up to date with the latest visual and Javascript techniques/trends. And, of course, share with and learn from the collective Whitespectre rails brain trust.

  • Whitespectre operates on a fully-modern tech stack- toolset includes ReactJS, Typescript, Webpack, REST/GraphQL, Rails, Postgres, Elastic, CI/CD with Docker, Heroku/AWS, etc. Working smartly is important to us; automation, dynamic environments spin up with new feature branches and slack bot integrations control our production releases.

  • The majority of our projects involve building greenfield applications and our delivery teams typically own products end to end - your thinking and contribution make a big impact!

  • You can read more about life in our engineering team in this blog post by our Senior Engineer, Eneko.


What else is great about working at Whitespectre?



  • Interesting challenges: We’ve done everything from scaling high-performance, high concurrency micro-service backends, building beautiful (but complex) user interfaces to handling real-time event streams from hardware devices..

  • Grow every day: Be in an environment that embraces constant learning and exploring - whether it’s a new skill, a new way of thinking, or a new product experiment, we know it’s the key to staying motivated.

  • Career progression: Get the opportunities, knowledge sharing, and mentorship to grow- whether you want to move into management or Principle Engineer. We proudly promote from within.

  • Work-life balance: Thrive at work, but know that it doesn’t take over your life. Clear processes and realistic planning avoids fires!

  • Paid Meetups: We love remote, but face-to-face is pretty great too. Come meet with your colleagues in Barcelona or at a local meetup.

  • Competitive rates, long-term outlook: We offer competitive rates and a long-term, full-time contract position. Many of our team members have been with us for 5+ years.

This is the right position for you if want-



  • The challenge of collaborating with UI/UX Designers and Product Managers to advocate for technology solutions while bearing in mind the tradeoffs for business results

  • The responsibility of designing new solutions and being confident to justify your technology decisions. (Plus debating and recognizing when a colleague has an even better idea!)

  • To solve problems that can’t be addressed by just searching Stack Overflow

  • The opportunity to go outside your core expertise and strong skills with other technologies and learn more.

  • An environment where excellent communication skills (both verbal and written) are valued and honed


A culture where people from different backgrounds interact, collaborate and reach a shared goal


The “check the box” Requirements



  • 3+ years of experience in software development, 2+ years of HTML/CSS/animation/ Javascript experience. Ideally, you’ll have worked on Rails projects before and hopefully used React.

  • Experience contributing to technical decision making within a team

  • Can work full-time with a significant crossover with the core hours: 11am - 6pm Central European Time

  • Live outside of the US. Please, no recruitment agencies.
