Spindle | Front-end Hero

Front-end Hero

Develop your appetite for cutting-edge front-end technology while contributing to awesome code at Spindle.


Do you have a passion for front-end development and are looking for a place to build your experience? We are looking for a new team member to work on Lily, the digital personal assistant who helps teams build better relations with their customers. As a front-end developer contributing to this project, you will work on a front-end written in Angular that communicates with an API leveraging the power of the Python/Django framework. We could tell you more about why developing Lily is fun and challenging, but you can also see for yourself by exploring the source code on GitHub.


Must have:

  • Knowledge of Javascript (ES6)

  • Some experience with Angular or another modern javascript framework

  • Reading and writing HTML/CSS/SASS


Nice to have:

  • You have previously used a task runner like Gulp or Webpack

  • You know another programming language besides javascript

  • You have used Django

Who is Spindle?

We are an organization that adheres to an agile way of building software. We tweak the process we use to build software as much as the software itself. Call it meta-agile. Seriously though, you should be comfortable in a constantly changing environment.


We work with Holacracy. We are a purpose driven organization where authority is distributed to roles instead of people. We choose not to have managers because we believe that all colleagues use their expertise to make the right decisions regarding their roles and contribute equally to the direction of the product as well as the organization.


We strive for quality over quantity. We share our expertise between developers by reviewing all code before it is deployed.  


We are committed to open source software. We share our own software where possible. Actively contributing to open source projects is regarded as part of the job. Because we are proud of what we do, we like to share our knowledge in blog posts and at meetups and conferences.

What we offer:

Spindle is a purpose-driven enterprise connecting the world using  free (as in freedom) 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:


  • A relaxed and welcoming culture with celebrations, events, hackathons, and trips

  • A Competitive salary

  • A good pension insurance

  • An annual study budget and study days

  • At least 2 weeks leave for new parents

  • An hour of lunch time in which we enjoy a delicious catered lunch

  • A Spindle company bike

  • A sports and wellness subscription
