We want to help all companies make a difference in the world by revolutionizing the way they work together, empowering them to reach their full potential.We’re off to a great start too. Teams in some of the world’s largest enterprise companies are already collaborating with their suppliers through Vizibl and transforming the way they work to drive innovation together.We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where every company sees the benefit of working openly and collaboratively. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let’s help every company work together, better.

Are you interested in building products that challenge the status quo in the enterprise space? Do you enjoy an abundance of autonomy with just the right amount of alignment? Vizibl is looking for an experienced Front End Engineer who is passionate about building large scale web applications. This is an opportunity to drive exciting new projects that will help change the way the world’s largest companies work with each other. The position is remote and is full-time.

We’re looking for a Lead Front End Engineer to take responsibility for the overall client-side architecture of our core product Vizibl. Vizibl is a single page application with a wide scope written in Angular.js and powered by a REST API.

We’re working with some of the world’s biggest companies from pharmaceuticals to telecoms. Our unique blend of Enterprise know-how coupled with cutting edge web technologies is one of the things our customers love about us.

2019 will be a critical year for Vizibl as we transition and grow rapidly, so you’ll play a key role in migrating legacy code and processes to a sustainable position to build upon for the future. You’ll also be involved in hiring to increase the size of the team later in the year. The ideal candidate will have strong experience in the development and architecture of large web applications, as well as leadership skills and a knack for embracing new challenges. We’re keen to hear your ideas on best practices, continuous integration, testing and quality assurance. But it’s not just day-to-day upkeep – we’re still undergoing rapid feature development in a number of exciting areas. 

As a small team no-one is siloed into one discipline or technology – if you’d like to help out on the backend or build a service using a new technology, that’s something we embrace.

As this is a fully remote position we’ll be looking for strong communication skills and the ability to motivate yourself and your team to work independently.

If this sounds like your sort of challenge we’d love to hear from you.
