Frontend Software Engineer (remote | Brazil)
About CodeLeap
CodeLeap helps ambitious organisations and entrepreneurs invent, build and scale software products. We currently do it in domains as diverse as education or med-tech. Most of our projects start from scratch - an empty .js file or a whiteboard - and it is up to the creativity and technical talent of our team to come up with a great solution.
We believe in maximising the freedom of our team members. This means not only location independence and flexible hours, but also freedom to take ownership of projects, and to organise your work in a way that best supports your strengths. Besides freedom, we also believe in taking responsibility. All of us care deeply about building products that exceed the expectations of our clients and their users, and we are not afraid of working hard when it matters.
CodeLeap is not only a team of people with a passion for technology, we are proper geeks. As soon as we received our first client payment, we did the most reasonable thing we could think of: we got an Oculus. Outside of work, each of us enjoys being creative and curious - building software tools, DIY robots, playing musical instruments or weird video games.
If this sounds like the team you’d like to join, reach out! We are still a young business, and you could play a very meaningful role in shaping our future. Let’s build the best software company in the world together!
Role description
We're looking for an experienced frontend developer to help us in the development of our clients projects. You will work closely with other team members and have the freedom to discuss and suggest not only technical but also product-related solutions. Ideally you have an eye for design and are keen on helping managing the projects issues and requirements.
Requirements
  • JS/React skills - you are fluent with the React ecosystem and common libraries such as Redux, but you also don’t hesitate to tackle lower level Vanilla JS problems such as DOM manipulation.
  • Pragmatic and capable of taking ownership - once we agree on a high level goal, we expect you to be reasonable and thoughtful in implementing the right solution.
  • Gets things done - you live up up to your commitments. Once you say something will be done, the rest of the team should rest assured that it will.
  • Understanding of networking and data structures - you are good at managing and processing data in a logical, understandable and efficient way and have experience dealing with external services and APIs
Bonus points
  • React Native experience - you have experience playing around with React-Native apps and code.
  • Love of design - just as important as getting the UI working well, we need interfaces to look and feel awesome. We're looking for someone who also has an eye for designs to help with the hard things like making responsive interfaces and animations.
  • Infrastructure and backend knowledge - you also have some experience deploying websites to services like AWS or Google Cloud. Backend experience is also welcome (we use Django/Python).
  • Fluent written and spoken English - the better your English the better. We expect you at least to be able to comfortable to communicate by writing, and to have basic spoken conversational skills.
We offer
  • Location independence - while CodeLeap was started in London, modern technology enables fully remote work.

  • Massive growth potential - wanna join a young and ambitious team and really make an impact? We're looking for people for the long run. And lucky you, we're just getting started.
Practicalities
Most of our clients are UK/EU based, so we prefer if your usual working hours overlap with European time zones.
Our team members are located mostly in Brazil and Central Europe, and our salaries are targeted towards being highly competitive in these locations. We work on a contract basis.
We all work remotely so you must be happy about having some remote friends! :)
