Senior Frontend Developer Position

As a senior frontend developer you are responsible for the further development of our primary application: docGen. This means of course that you write code and take care of the associated unit tests yourself. In addition, you contribute to improving the software architecture and you are actively involved in translating wishes and ideas into a technical design that fits within the design principles of docGen. You keep yourself informed of new developments and technologies.

We are a small but ambitious team with a passion for detail and a grand appreciation for elegant code and a dog with a little obsession with carrots. Is there a match? Then be sure to apply quickly.

What are you gonna build?

DocGen is a web-based enterprise level application that delivers powerful document generation functionalities, with maximum ease of implementation and integration. DocGen is the government-wide standard for the (automated) creation of documents in (State) branding, with which approximately 60% of our ministries currently create their formal documents such as letters, reports, memos and reports according to the house style guidelines. DocGen excels at using complex dynamic forms, which is what makes the frontend of docGen a complex beast!
