Senior Frontend Engineer - Core Products (m/f/d)

At Jimdo, our mission is to help small businesses start, grow, and ultimately thrive online. Small businesses face new challenges with very little support or recognition. We know how hard this can be, because we have been in their position. That’s where you can help us—by designing intuitive tools to help small businesses solve complex problems.

With a forward-leaning and self-driven attitude, we continue to find new ways to help our customers get their ideas out into the world. As a team, we run at a steady pace to achieve what we aim for. We learn best by gathering data, trying new things, and sometimes even falling down along the way. It’s the lessons we learn in the process that make us better problem-solvers for small business owners.

If you’re motivated by our mission and excited to roll up your sleeves, try new things, learn from mistakes, and make a difference to small businesses around the world, we would love to work with you.

Location

We are happy to invite you to work with us in our office in Hamburg or permanently remote from any location where you are permitted to work from. Wherever your working location of choice will be, we will make sure you get proper onboarding (virtual or in-person) and that you are fully equipped to become part of the team from day one.

We will support you in case you would like to relocate to Germany.

The Team

In the Core Products group, we are responsible for ideating and implementing experiences which solve the problems of small businesses. Within this group, we have the opportunity to work on a variety of expanding domains that serve the needs of the self-employed.

Small business is an exciting unexplored domain with many areas of focus. We want to ensure our customers are able to solve their problems in a seamless way, whether it’s creating their website, managing their store, gathering statistics, or interacting with their own customer base.

As we seek to grow and explore these problems further, we are looking for engineers who are as excited as us about solving them. We value autonomy and collaboration heavily, so we operate in small, dynamic teams which focus on individual areas. If all this sounds exciting to you, then the Core Products team might be the place for you.
