Coolblue. Once, it was only a college start-up. Today, it s an online enterprise that s made up of 8 physical stores and over 325 specialized webshops.
Ever since we began in 1999, we ve had but one goal : to make customers happy. We provide expert advice and we’re obsessed with customer satisfaction.
Together, we work our butts off in order to amaze our customers.
As a Senior Front-end Developer you maintain the balance between creativity and functionality for our web shops, and you coach your fellow developers.
What you tell people at parties
I’m a Front-end Developer. Front-end. Front of the I build websites .
What you really do
You improve the user experience of our web shops for millions of potential customers
You keep an eye on the current performance of our web shops and analysing how to improve these
You work on new functionalities and improvements during biweekly sprints, of course with your team to support you
You coach, provide feedback and share your knowledge with your team and other front-enders
You stay open-minded while you think about all the technical choices you can make, like our architecture, tools and processes.
You don't do things just because they were always done that way but you don't ignore the lessons learned
How you do it
You prioritize your own work together with your team and Product Owner
You receive immediate feedback from end-users and you will have a lot of opportunities to experiment
You’re not afraid to take charge if you think things can be better
You use the right tool for the job. You’re directed by your analytical skills and ability to stay objective
To measure is to know. Big data and experience are your gurus, your gut feeling isn't
Your team will be managed by a Team Lead, a Scrum Master and a Product Owner. You and another team are responsible for one specific domain of Coolblue.nl.
A day at the office
Today is the start of a new sprint in which you and your team will continue work on the new search functionality. Together with the UX designer and other developers in the team you discuss the best approach for the first story.
You will have to check the final PR later, because the day will end with a meeting with a few other enthusiastic developers.
You have a great idea for implementing new technology that will reduce time to first byte by 10 to 20%. Showering has never been more useful.
