Frontend Developer

At Klarity we are on an exciting, ambitious and bold mission, fighting corruption with technology . One in four people around the world pay a bribe to access public services, we want to help them to take action against this everyday corruption without risking their lives. We are developing an online platform where citizens can crowdsource reports on corruption and collaborate with institutions and organisations to take action on these issues and create lasting change in their local communities. We will start testing the first version of the platform in October in a country in sub-saharan Africa and our ambition is to become a social impact unicorn, to grow the platform to be used all over the world and impact billions of people.

We are looking for an experienced and talented frontend developer with interest in UX and UI to join our team. You will be part of a small and tight cross-functional team. The team works closely with our partners who will help us launch our community-based service in developing countries around the world.

Our system is composed of a set of microservices running as Docker containers on Google Cloud. Backend services are mostly written in Kotlin and we use Node.js and React on the frontend. Your core responsibilities will be the frontend stack, but being part of a small team it is crucial that you are curious and always eager to learn new things.

We believe that good developers are not only implementers, you should also take an active part in deciding what to build, when to do it and how to measure if it was successful or not. You enjoy talking to users and working with domain experts to achieve the best product possible. You love going beyond just writing code and into designing new product features, from brainstorming to wire framing and UI design. You have a pragmatic approach and often ask yourself how to get 80 % of the value for 20 % of the effort.

You have probably spent at least a couple of years as a frontend developer working. You know what it means to develop something from scratch, but also what is important when maintaining once live. You are fluent in JavaScript, HTML and CSS and have experience with modern JavaScript frameworks such as React or AngularJS. Being skilled within UX and UI design is a big plus.

Our core values resonate with you: Purpose, Trust, Curiosity, Compassion and Helpfulness. Many of us are parents and we know that a healthy work/life balance is key for long-term success.

Finally, you are probably reading this ad because you are wondering if your skills could come in handy to improve people's everyday lives. We don't mean making their favourite app load 1 millisecond faster, no we mean real social impact - giving them the tools to fight corruption and bring development and prosperity to their community.
