Front-End Developer

About us

Vimla is not just another mobile carrier and never will be. Ever since the launch of Vimla in 2014, we've changed what people expect from a phone operator. By pushing boundaries, we have managed to become the fastest growing mobile carrier in Sweden. And more importantly, we have earned the trust and loyalty of our customers to an extent normally unheard of in our industry. This year we were even awarded Carrier of the Year based on our customer satisfaction. Things are good, but we're just getting started.

In 2019, all departments at Vimla are growing considerably. While this gives us the opportunity to do even more interesting things, it also creates a few interesting challenges for our tech department, including:

  • Considerable growth in users, development team, and other departments
  • Migrating all of our customer base to a new type of cloud-based telco network
  • Developing new types of services based on new telco capabilities
  • Helping other departments become more efficient by making best-in-class modern tooling, including AI.
  • Building an efficient work environment for development with excellent ergonomics

The role

As a front-end developer at Vimla, you’ll be part of a small and ever-evolving cross-functional team with some of the most humble and skilled technical nerds in the business, devoted to enabling all the fun stuff for our users!

Your focus will be on the front-end of things, responsible for the front-end facing components that we use in all of our products, working with projects like our mobile and- web apps and new Filter-app.

Our front-end is based on Javascript/Typescript/React/Native for Web, Vimla-app, Filter-app (Android/iPhone), internal tooling and satellite webs, while using Node.js in the back-end. We value investing in the best possible tools and environments to make development efficient and ergonomic.

Main responsibilities

  • Improving and maintaining our software development environment and tools
  • Collaborate with UX and designers to create good interfaces
  • Continuously improve Vimla's development environment such that front-end development is efficient and pleasant
  • Planning, estimating and documenting software implementation in front-end
  • Writing software
  • Collaborate with users and product owners on how and what to implement
  • Testing software

Some cool stuff in the pipeline

  • Our vision is that Vimla should be the natural choice for any developer - by launching a developer portal where our users can build apps on top of their phone number
  • By switching telephone network type to cloud-based, we will be able to control and do a whole new set of interesting things in our telephone product
  • We’re using advanced technology to maximize customer support efficiency

We believe you already

  • Have experience in the front-end using modern Javascript frameworks
  • Know how to communicate efficiently with colleagues of different background

It’s also a plus if you

  • Have experience in TypeScript, React and React native
  • Enjoy working full-stack
  • Have experience in Android- and iPhone development (Native)
  • Understand telco domain problems

Why you want to work @Vimla

As Vimla is currently on a really exciting growth journey, the possibilities to grow and develop with us are huge. We’re all intrigued by the opportunity of shaping the technical architecture of the new telco-stuff and what you can do with it.

We believe in empowering our team to work the way they’re most efficient, therefore you’ll choose your own equipment and have the possibility to affect your own work environment.

We value each other's progress and have a flexible budget for competence-development, with room for important matters like learning new technologies and attending relevant conferences, ensuring we all keep á jour with all the needed knowledge to keep progressing.
