About this job

We’re looking for a passionate Javascript Engineer who will join us to build the best video streaming
platform that users enjoy on a daily basis. You will have an overall responsibility of developing a high quality
product to satisfy our customers needs and continuously improving working process, tooling and ways of
working across multiple teams.

We currently work with TypeScript, React, GraphQL, and Node.js, however we value the ability to adapt
with changing technology.

What we're looking for

  • You know your way around Javascript and how to use it to build performant and reliable applications
  • You have deployed to AWS before and know how to scale to millions of users
  • You have an idea about how to utilize unit, integration and end-to-end tests to ensure quality
  • Good communication skills in English (we employ people from over 30 countries)
  • Willingness to relocate to Munich (or you are within daily travel distance)
  • Opportunities to make an impact

  • At Joyn, we look for a broad skillset - you will have the opportunity to shape our product in many ways, depending what interests you the most:
  • You could be working on web micro-frontends or Smart TV applications using React, Typescript and GraphQL, extending our shared component library that is consumed by multiple clients, contributing to our microservices and GraphQL API or implementing tests using Jest and Cypress.
  • Our teams are flexible and often changing, but if you prefer working on one platform that is fine as well.
  • You can find a list of technologies we're currently using on our Stackshare page.
  • Our ways of working

  • We work in an agile environment, prioritizing tasks with your team and the Product Owner
  • We incorporate immediate feedback from end users and use data to generate new ideas - "facts
  • before ego"
  • We continuously challenge and improve the quality of our applications, ensuring a maintainable architecture
  • We actively coach team members and continuously provide them with constructive feedback
  • We have regular events and encourage initiatives to enable knowledge sharing and cross-team collaboration
