Front End Developer MAINFRAME INDUSTRIES / Helsinki or Reykjavik

PUBLISHED: October 20, 2021

Do you want to be a part of building the game of a lifetime?

At Mainframe we are building a living world that people will call their home for years and hopefully decades. This world lives in the cloud and will through the years of its operations become the setting for complex social drama that involves potentially millions of people around the clock and around the world.

The underlying architecture and infrastructure to sustain such a world for years involves all the complexity involved with running a modern informatic society.

We are looking for a Frontend developer to help us build the interfaces that our users, both external and internal, will be using.

Your role is based preferably in Finland, Iceland or France, where we have our offices. We are open to discussing remote work but, we prefer to stay in the time zones between Helsinki and Reykjavik. We believe in good work-life balance and working where you are most productive.

In your first 6-12 months you can expect to:

  • Be an essential stakeholder in API design and development
  • Participate in the refactoring of our existing monolith to a tiered architecture
  • Build customer-facing sites and systems
  • Design and build internally-facing sites that help our team with managing users

Minimum qualifications:

  • Experience with JavaScript/TypeScript, HTML, CSS/Sass and frontend frameworks such as Vue or React
  • Experience with communications with backend services through REST or GraphQL
  • Familiarity with standard front-end testing approaches (Selenium, PhantomJS, etc.)

Would be awesome if you:

  • Have had exposure to full stack development (such as Python and Flask/Django)
  • Have experience with AWS or equivalent cloud services
  • Have experience with Docker and Kubernetes

Our current stack is composed of a few different technologies, including:

AWS, Terraform/Terragrunt, Docker, Kubernetes, Python, Unreal, PostgreSQL, Redis, DataDog, GitHub, TeamCity, ArgoCD, Atlantis, Perforce – but we do not have emotional attachments to any of them.

About Mainframe:

We have a human-friendly, equal-opportunity workplace that values collaboration, independence, and empathy.

We have our offices in Helsinki, Reykjavik and Paris. All our offices are centrally located and we offer you top of the line work conditions wherever you work.

We are a well funded pan-Nordic start-up founded in 2019. We are working on a project we love. Joining us now is an opportunity to make an impact on the game we develop and the company culture very early on.
