Web Developer

Berlin, Germany Marketing

About the opportunity

Contentful is looking for a Web Developer to join our cross-disciplinary Website Team.
Our marketing website is our primary communication channel, lead engine, knowledge base, partner management tool and brand image asset. As we grew, our website transformed into a complex digital product with high requirements on functionality and user experience.
You will work within a cross-functional team alongside a Product Owner, two Designers, and two other Developers to build out our website and related properties. We’re looking for someone to bring hands-on technical skills and a solid grasp on best ways to build and maintain a complex website spanning multiple technologies.

What to expect?

  • You will work with designers and other developers to bring the team’s ideas to life.
  • You will collaborate on your team’s projects, as well as cross-departmentally: including between engineering and marketing by supporting relationships with other, Product, and Data engineering teams.
  • You will support and execute the technical side of team projects, big and small. You'll be working on our website’s technical architecture and coding beautiful micro-interactions along the conversion path. You’ll be contributing directly to the website code and to our living style guide.
  • We don’t expect perfection though – we’re all in this to learn and grow together.
  • You'll be part of a team whose projects have a measurable impact on the company’s bottom line!

What you need to be successful?

  • At least 2 years of experience in Front-End development, preferably working on customer facing projects (marketing context is a plus, but not essential).
  • Solid understanding of HTML/CSS 
  • Experience with modern JavaScript (ES6+, React) and writing clean and maintainable code.
  • Experience using static site generators (e.g., GatsbyJS, Next.js) to get projects off the ground (we use GatsbyJS for our website).
  • You have agile experience (or are not afraid to gain some) and want to contribute to improve our team’s processes even further.
  • BONUS: Have an interest or past experience with anything like automated testing, A/B testing, accessibility, serverless architecture, or something else that we might think is cool? Set yourself apart by telling us all about it!

What's in it for you?

  • Join an ambitious tech company reshaping the way people build digital products. 
  • We set you up for success, equipping you with the latest and greatest hardware
  • Enjoy a full range of events, including workshops, Contentful-hosted meetups, guest speakers and team activities. Meet your team members from across the globe at our annual offsite. 
  • Get fit! We offer a variety of health and fitness classes and a discount on Urban Sports Club.
  • Use your personal education budget to improve your skills and grow in your career. Join a free German class or one of our many internal learning initiatives!
  • Plus, Contentful socks! Oh yeah!
