Full stack JavaScript developer


Barcelona 32/40 H

Who are we?

Rinkel is a telecommunications scale-up founded in 2014 in the Netherlands. We offer a SaaS telephony platform that revolutionises the way freelancers and small businesses communicate. That includes building our very own Webphone in 2021, and launching our integrations in early 2022. And for two years in a row, we're also one of the fastest growing businesses in the Netherlands! And there's so much more to us.

Our founders are techies, which means we don't consider software engineering an afterthought, a necessary evil or an expense. It's in our DNA. We're passionate about transforming a conservative telecom market, where most applications come from the Age of Dinosaurs. We do this by designing and building intuitive software by applying User Centered Design principles. From networking to mobile apps: everything is done in-house, which allows for rapid prototyping ("fail often, fail fast") and enables us to stay ahead of the competition.

Next to that, we have recently opened a new Engineering office in Barcelona! After growing our team from 2 to 11 people in just a couple of years, it was time to spread our wings and look beyond our borders. Barcelona has been chosen as the location to further expand our Engineering team because we think its hot tech scene is a perfect match for us. You will join two colleagues already working in the Barcelona office (which is located right next to the beach!). To ensure team synergy and to integrate new hires into our current team, employees will have the option to travel between Barcelona and Rotterdam on a regular basis.

About the role

Our Web platform is based on PHP/jQuery and communicates with a NodeJS REST API. However, our latest feature - the Webphone, being able to make and receive calls from your browser - is based on React (and WebRTC / JsSIP).

We now understand that nothing beats the UX/UI possibilities of a React SPA and have decided to migrate the entire Web platform. You will team up with the Product Owner and Designer to migrate our components from a traditional stateless application, to a snappy new SPA! This role requires a solid JavaScript understanding, as you'll be working on both the frontend (creating new React components) and on the backend (creating new REST API calls in our NodeJS Express app). 

As a Full Stack JavaScript Developer, you will:

  • be part of a multidisciplinary team that ships great, intuitive software and knows what they're doing
  • take technical ownership of your product
  • work on a NodeJS backend and a React frontend
  • migrate a boring, stateless PHP application to a new and snappy React SPA!

For this role, we need you to have:

  • a solid understanding of JavaScript
  • +/- 2 years of experience using React
  • +/- 2 years of experience using NodeJS
  • a solid understanding of React hooks and state management
  • experience using functional React components
  • experience with Webpack or similar tools
  • experience with REST API’s
  • a good level of English (both spoken and written)
  • Good communication skills, including being able to communicate with non-technical colleagues

It would be nice if you have:

  • a related bachelor’s degree
  • experience with CSS modules
  • experience with CI/CD workflows
  • a sharp eye for UI/UX design
