The best thing our engineers love about Otrium is the opportunity to impact the shopping experience of millions of fashion lovers. Developers are involved within the lifetime of the product, not only on the technical side.

We are rebuilding our frontend in React and we do not hesitate to use the newest technologies to build a beautiful product, experienced by millions of fashion lovers every day. Clean, scalable and reliable code from day one, that’s what we are striving for. We are laying the foundations today in view of the future growth of Otrium.

We create a code base all future developers will be able to refer to as ‘beautiful’.

About Otrium

Founded and headquartered in Amsterdam, we’re a purpose-led business – we believe all clothing should be worn.

Right now, lots of fashion stays unsold. For the resources that went in and for the people who miss out, it’s such a shame. We’re here to fix this. We are an online fashion outlet marketplace and we tech-enable designer brands to find an owner for every item they produce.

We give brands an online outlet channel and digital tools to smartly connect dynamically-priced end-of-season collections with fashion-lovers. Then we give them the data so they can reproduce most-wanted items.

Our app re-imagines outlet shopping helping customers easily find reduced-price gems. We give end-of-season fashion a new start, which is smarter for the wardrobe, smarter for the wallet and smarter for the industry.

About this role

The fastest-growing company in The Netherlands deserves the strongest tech team, and that’s exactly what we strive to be. Here you will be developing features and services that will directly impact our customers’ experience and speed up the company’s growth. We expect nothing but the best from every developer.

It’s all hands on deck to rebuild the entire frontend in React. No legacy involved, that’s why it’s crucial that we set the right foundation for the future by making the code clean, scalable and properly documented from day one. The Senior Frontend Developer will join one of the scrum teams and take the lead on the frontend for transactions, content, marketing or shopping.
