Senior Frontend Engineer

Berlin, Germany

We at shiftspace are building a personal development app to help individuals evolve in our complex and demanding world. Our content is built around the ‘vertical development‘ framework. We guide individuals through a process of inquiring into personal issues to achieve a shift in what we call ‘meaning-making‘ – to ultimately gain a better understanding of themselves, the people, and the world around them. We want to help people gain more clarity and resilience and have the capacity to connect to themselves and others on a deeper level.

Sounds a bit complex? Well, it kind of is. We have a lot of ideas concerning new content and new features, and after a successful seed round, we are now looking for an experienced and motivated Frontend Engineer to drive the development of an appealing and intuitive digital companion. We want our app to be easy to use and keep the user engaged in order to make personal development as accessible as possible!

As a young startup, we are very fortunate to already be working with organizations like the National Health Service (NHS) and the Entrepreneurs’​ Organization (EO), and with your help, we will be able to make personal development available to many more individuals!

What we want you to have

  • Experience in building maintainable web applications using component frameworks, TypeScript and other web-platform features around progressive enhancements.

  • An eye for appealing user interfaces and the ability to integrate our content and feature ideas into an accessible and intuitive user experience.

  • A sense of entrepreneurial passion and the desire to make an impact by continuously learning new things and questioning the status quo.

  • Bonus: Prior experience with Svelte and SvelteKit

Our Tech Stack

  • Go + PostgreSQL

  • Svelte + TypeScript

  • Docker + GCP (Google Cloud Platform)

What you can expect from shiftspace

  • Close collaboration with the founders and with that, insights and contribution into all important areas of our freshly founded company.

  • The freedom to take ownership of your work and drive initiatives independently. It’s the idea that counts, not the position.

  • The flexibility of self-determined working hours with an asynchronous and remote-first way of working. Our base is in Berlin and we would love to meet you in person whenever possible!

  • Biweekly team coaching sessions led by a professional coach

  • Team days – At least once a quarter, we meet as a team in various European locations to work, learn, strategize and have fun together!

Curious? Apply for the position with your cv and a short cover letter telling us why you want to join! We are excited to get to know and learn all about you.
