Scroll to content

We give people the opportunities they need to shine. Change is our second name – we are pursuing to conquer a new market space so we adjust our ways of working constantly – you won’t get bored here!


Smarp continues to grow and our customer base keeps getting wider! This means that we are developing our software and services with high speed. Hence we are looking for a talented senior Frontend guru to join our agile development team in our Helsinki office. We are also looking for a team lead for the frontend team so there's a possibility for a team lead role for the right person as well.

You are definitely the one we are looking for if you:

  • Have a solid frontend developer background with some team leading experience
  • Are capable to work in English in an international environment
  • Skilled in JavaScript, HTML/CSS, and React. We have AngularJS --> React migration ongoing. So, AngularJS experience would be appreciated too but lack of it, isn't a deal breaker.
  • Are educated with a Computer Science Bachelor’s or Master’s degree
  • Know and/or have experience on Webpack and asset-building process, HTML5 and SCSS (a plus!)
  • Have experience working in a Scrum environment (a plus!)
  • Have an artistic background, some UI designing experience and UX knowledge (a plus!) 
  • Have the ambition to make Smarp the greatest Global success story ever 

As our newest Frontend Engineer you will:

  • Be one of our masterminds in Frontend, with the possibility to coach other frontend developers depending on your expertise and interests
  • Use latest technologies, and contribute to them if they are open source
  • See your impact and contribution through continuous integration
  • Help our UX team with designs
  • Become a team member in one of our highly talented tech squads
  • Bring our frontend to the next level with your experience and new ideas

If you are interested, there's also a possibility to relocate to Finland as we offer a relocation package. If this is the case, please tell us more about your situation in the cover letter.

What to expect from the recruitment process:

We are looking for the most suitable people to join Smarp; we want it to be a match from both sides! We want to give you as much information and glimpses of life here at Smarp as possible. You’ll get to meet many Smarpers during the process, get to know our product and our culture. 

The process for this role looks like this:

  1. Online Test 
  2. Call with our talent acquisition team
  3. Live Coding with the team 
  4. Interview with the hiring manager
  5. Co-founder discussion

We believe that without our people, Smarp would only be a bunch of laptops - and that’s why it’s super important to find talented professionals who fit our culture. We like spending time together; laughter and chatting can be heard every day at the office and we want to keep it that way.

Please send your application in PDF form through the link below as soon as possible but at the latest on February 10th, 2020. We will start going through the applications already during the application period and close the role once we find the suitable person so be fast! For the communication we use emails so remember to check them regularly.
