Front end developer

As Front end software engineer, you want to help build and launch innovative products. Preferably in a dynamic environment with ambitious people. A place where you’re constantly developing and learning. Your contribution will make The Netherlands truly digitalise and thus you can help create a safe digital society.

Frontend Developer at Cleverbase

As Qualified Trust Service Provider, Cleverbase is licensed to issue certificates with the Public Key Infrastructure of the Dutch government. After a one-time registration, you can log in, exchange information and sign documents (i.e. your deed of purchase) on the highest eIDAS security level. Completely safe, with your own phone and pin code. During pressure cookers, we make prototypes to quickly find out from which concepts we can make actual products. That’s how we made sure our client could digitally sign a European tender within three days.

As Front end software engineer at Cleverbase, you offer technical solutions for functional wishes within the domain of qualified information exchange. You’ll be working together with back end engineers on aligning client and server side and to communicate best practices. Of course you’re constantly aware of developments relevant to your role as front end developer. 

We currently work with React, because we’re enthusiastic about component-based and functional code. However, the front end world is dynamic and we want to adapt so we can always deliver products with the highest technical quality with the best user experience. Your vision on this is important! You’re more than welcome to reach our dream together.
