Spindle | Front End Architect

What you will do

We are in the process of overhauling one of our projects to make a cleaner distinction between back-end and front-end. We are looking to bring in experience with projects of this scale related to front-end development. We want someone who is able to form a substantiated opinion on front-end development and persuasively discuss that opinion with colleagues in related disciplines.

You should feel confident in all aspects of front-end development techniques and methodologies, but we are explicitly looking for someone to bring in a higher level perspective on the current state and future of front-end development on the  platform. You are focussed on optimizing processes more than finishing the work that has already been defined.

Who you are

You are an experienced front-end developer that has a deep understanding of the Javascript ecosystem and modern Javascript frameworks. You have worked with people in related disciplines (design, back-end development) to find the best solution for technical problems on projects with a large scope. To excel in your work, you especially need to understand the relation between front-end and back-end development and the API’s that connect them most efficiently.



  • Bachelor/Master in software engineering or an equivalent degree

  • 7+ years of experience

  • Skilled in Javascript and some other general purpose languages like, but not limited to, Python or Go

  • Experience with modern front-end frameworks (like Angular, React, Vue)

  • Experience as a project lead

What we offer

Spindle is a purpose-driven enterprise that wants to connect the world using free (as in freedom) means of communication. We offer you the opportunity to work on software that strives to make sure that communication is always yours and yours alone. We also offer:
