Your new job  
As a front-end developer, you are technically co-responsible for the work of the ComGenius product team. Our team and product has been built from scratch in the last year, meaning there is no legacy code.

This application is used by our commercial employees daily. Multiple users at the beating heart of Albert Heijn use this tool as the single source of truth for all their insights and receive proactive notifications to support their decisions regarding the assortment, price, promotions, and more of our products in stores. We support remote working in this team. On average we meet once every two weeks in the office for meetings or fun stuff. Although we are looking for candidates who are based in the Netherlands, we don’t mind if you’d be working remotely from a different location in the world a few weeks a year.

Interview Process:

The first step is reviewing your resume and plan a (video) call with our tech recruiter Carly DeSantis, in which one of the Tech leads joins the first or last 15 minutes too, so you can ask more in-depth technical questions. The next step is a technical assignment to tackle at home, which we use to understand if your programming style matches what we look for in a team mate. If it does, we follow up with a relaxed 1-hour chat, where we talk about the assessment, your experiences, and some day-to-day technical stuff you don’t really need any preparation for. At last there’s a 30-min chat with the Head of Tech and our PO to get to know each other and tell you more about the direction and ambitions of the team.
