Senior FullStack Developer - ReactJS and NodeJS at Bloomon (Amsterdam, Netherlands) (allows remote)

For this job you can either relocate to Amsterdam or work remotely.

We want to make it clear – here at bloomon we are a little rebellious. And a lot disruptive. The new guys taking on the traditional players. While turning our industry on its head.

Therefore, you are a person who is all about stepping out of your comfort zone and performing tasks that are necessary for the success of our great product. You feel comfortable writing decoupled micro-services, indirectly communicating through an event stream or PubSub, and you challenge those writing monolithic APIs.

You’ll probably ask yourself now – how is technology related to the flower industry or to bloomon and how can I be disrupting anything as a full-stack developer in a flower-delivery-company.

Well, we are glad you asked!

You would be surprised to hear that anything in our product is based on tech and data. Behind every bunch of flowers there are tons of algorithms, lines of codes, and you may even come across a bug or two.

How do we work?

Our working methodology is as disruptive as our stack and infrastructure. We are working towards a Squad model founded by spotify, where you work in a small multi-disciplinary team. In addition, we use tools such as Slack, Jira, Github, and Trello to communicate efficiently and asynchronously — this allows us to work with anyone, anywhere.We work from hubs spread out between Europe and Asia. And it works great! After setting priorities, tasks enter a kanban (much like a living sprint), where developers set their own ETA which they themselves can monitor using time tracking. This way all our developers know exactly what to do, when and how. Next to that, this approach allows us to hire amazing developers from around the world, without having to compromise based on their location. Still not convinced? Apply and let us show you!


As you’ve read above we are looking for a full-stack developer. We work with the latest technologies, which allows for rapid development. Think about React.js , Redux, Webpack,Material UI, Node.js, Hapi, Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, etc.. We would love it if you already have a lot of experience in React.js and Redux. If you say you are very experienced with another high-level JavaScript framework such as Vue.js, Angular.js, or Ember.js – we would still be very happy. You do need to have a great understanding of Javascript, e.g. how scopes work and why we don’t like side effects. Everything you do will be in consideration of fundamental principles such as testability, readability, and separation of concerns.

A way to make us even more excited would be if you take an extra suitcase with for example knowledge about React sagas, Grid layouts based on e.g. react-flexbox-grid. It would be great if you could explain why Bootstrap doesn’t play very well with React’s component based architecture, or that css’ global nature in general is somewhat against what we are trying to achieve. But don’t worry if you don’t have it all – we organize peer programming every two weeks – so just take your enthusiasm and we will help you learn.

What do we expect from you?

  • 6 months experience with React.js and redux; or very experienced with a high-level Javascript framework such as Vue.js, Angular.js, or Ember.js

  • 2+ years Javascript (ES6), webpack, and Node.js

  • Great understanding on how to structure maintainable large-scale frontend and backend applications; e.g. how to separate concerns (business logic vs UI vs state)

  • Experience with Node.js frameworks such as HAPI, Restify, Express, Loopback, etc.

  • Experience working with, or great understanding of, micro-services and/or cloud functions

  • Unit, integration, and end-to-end testing

  • SQL

Bonus (not necessary)

  • Laravel / PHP

  • Experience with gRPC, Kafka, RabbitMQ

  • CI/CD (Kubernetes, Jenkins, TravisCI, Docker)

  • Experience with side effect management libraries

  • Grid layouts based on e.g. react-flexbox-grid or Bootstrap

What will YOU do?

Next to regular day-to-day operations (creation and maintenance of web applications, design, code and test new features, incident management, ode reviews for your peer developers, and provide feedback when applicable, coach and share your experience with your team) – we have some exciting projects coming up. Think of turning a set of wireframes and designs into a fully functional gifting system, allowing our customers to give bloomon to their friends with great ease.. Or a flexible promotion codes system for sales teams in Europe or a forecasting system for our purchasing and production teams. Another one would be to setup pipelines that convert input from a transaction database to a data warehouse, optimized for data analysis, or in order to sync this data with external APIs such as our CRM system.
