Junior Front-End Developer (React/React.Native)

Job description

Do you like front-end development and are you a fan of React? Can you imagine yourself, arriving every morning at an office full of energy and driven people, getting ready to scale a software platform to the whole world? Then read further and find out why we believe our startup in Ghent will be the ideal place for you.


Who are we?

We are Deliverect, a startup from Ghent solving a huge pain that restaurants currently have with handling incoming food-delivery orders. You may not believe it, but restaurants still have to manually handle the orders from each different ordering platform separately (Uber Eats, Takeaway.com, Deliveroo, etc.) The result? Mistakes, stressed employees, messed up orders, and dissatisfied customers - but no more: With our platform, we fix all of these analogue problems and bring restaurants up to the speed of the digital world.


Our young and international team currently counts more than 50 ambitious enthusiasts who work, innovate, and celebrate success together. We have experienced founders with a huge network and track record and already some of the biggest chains that are working with us. And we are excited to continue to grow a lot in the months to come.


Your mission at Deliverect:

As our junior Front-End Developer with React and Angular knowledge, you write well-tested code, and seek challenges that inspire you. Examples of your responsibilities include:

  • Building new features for web and native applications by writing clean and reusable React components

  • Integrating third-party services and APIs into the different frontend applications (Auth0, Google Sheets, i18next, Headway)

  • Creating visualizations to show aggregated reports of data

  • Working closely with all our customers, partners & the support team, continuously integrating their feedback in product development and user experience

  • Help to choose new technologies and frameworks to tackle problems

  • You may even get the chance to start new projects from scratch (we have a lot coming in the pipeline) or build backend services to support the client-facing frontend applications
