    Did you see any amazing websites lately? What was amazing about it? The graphics, the animation, the smoothness of interaction? Someone wrote that code.

    The possibilities in UX frontend development are increasing all the time, but someone needs to build it. In an agency environment you may be able to play with cutting edge technologies, but deadlines are tight and corners may need to be cut.

    At TomTom, we continuously improve our website and look for the best balance between using the latest technologies and reusability. We invest in making our code and components robust, maintainable and future-proof. Working in a small team we keep each other to a high standard while exploring new possibilities.

    Are you a curious, creative UX developer who likes to switch perspective and never stops learning? Do you have a keen eye for detail in design, animation and UX, while writing code that humans understand? And are you ready for your next challenge? Then we would love to talk to you.

    What you’ll do
    • Join us in the ambitious rebuild of TomTom.com using the latest web technologies.
    • Collaborate with Graphic Designers, Content Strategists, and UX Researchers to iterate on the design and implementation of Tomtom.com.
    • Having an eye for detail regarding design and animation.
    • Learn new things and stay up to date on the latest developments in web technology.
    • Keep code quality at a high level, preferring readability over shortcuts without overcoding.
    • Work in a team, review our code and let us review yours, so we can grow as a team.
    • Work with data analysts, SEO experts, and other engineers to build features and ship experiments.
    • And of course, having a good time with your teammates offline as well!
    What you’ll need
    • An innate curiosity with a desire to learn, create and explore.
    • Link to your Portfolio (or Codepen or Github) demonstrating creative work
    • Knowledge of React.js, Next.js or similar frameworks
    • Experience with other JavaScript libraries like WebGL, Three.js, PixiJS
    • Fluency in HTML, (S)CSS, and related web technologies.
    • Experience in solving cross-browser compatibility and client-side performance issues.
    • Experience with Figma, Sketch, Abstract or similar tools
    • Feel responsible for the end product keeping the end-user in mind and not only focus on your own field.
    What’s nice to have
    • Experience with Storybook, Chromatic and Cypress
    • Experience with Visual Studio Code, ESLint and Jest
    • Familiarity with the concept of Clean Code
    Meet your team

    A few years ago, we started an ambitious project, rebuilding tomtom.com based on an advanced design system, reusable atoms and components. By using React 17, Storybook and ExpressJS we are developing multiple solid web projects around a core library.

    Our team has grown and taken the role of a center of expertise for web development in TomTom. By using Azure cloud technology and automated testing tools like Cypress, Chromatic and Jest we are able to quickly release. We have many more plans to speed up development and increase our code quality, and we are looking for someone to join us on this ride. Maybe that is you?
