Frontend Developer - Property Search

For two decades, we have changed and challenged how people find their new homes. Hemnet’s products are used by 2,8 million unique visitors each week. People come to us to find a new home or to be inspired. Based on our vision of being the key to a simpler property transaction, we have launched new products and services in the past year. This is something we will continue doing. 

One of the things we’ll do is to rebuild Hemnet’s search experience. We are now looking for a seasoned software engineer interested in building new products from scratch and being part of architectural discussions and decisions. 

Property Search 

In this role you’ll be part of Team Property Search, one of Hemnet’s seven development teams. Property Search consists of developers, analysts and UX designers which makes the team autonomous and taking part of the full product development cycle. 

The team is responsible for Hemnet’s search experience. From the backend, via the filters in the frontend, to the result our users get. We are now looking at rebuilding the search experience and are therefore looking for you who think this sounds like an interesting challenge.

What you’ll do

  • Be part of the transformation of rearchitecting the current app to a new React.js application.
  • Play a big part in driving this, above, in terms of architectural principles and choice of technologies together with the team.
  • Work closely with other developers, product managers, UX designers and analysts. 
  • Take quick decisions with an experimental approach. 
  •  Be part of an agile team where retros, sprints, demos and continuous delivery are part of the everyday work life
  • Work in a friendly and caring company culture where transparency, work-life balance and well-being are high up on the company's agenda. 

Who are you? 

You’re an experienced frontend developer who think it would be exciting building a new application used by millions. At the same time you will be part of maintaining the old app, until the new one is in place. You enjoy working with React.js and are not afraid to help out on the backend side when needed. A big plus if you've worked with GraphQL.

You think it sounds fun being part of the full product development cycle, working with others, share your knowledge as well as being open to learn from others.
