Junior JavaScript Developer bij GoodUp

Are you an experienced Javascript Developer and do you want to use your skills for a SaaS product that will change the world? Let’s team up for change!


You are part of our product development team. Together with product owner and product designer you help to realize the product vision. Every day starts with a stand-up. The development teams have ownership over what to work on and are responsible for sprint planning. Developers are also involved in the (functional and technical) design phase of product development. In product development we are data driven and take the user perspective.

What are you responsible for?

You are responsible for the front-end application. Our SaaS application runs on Ember JS, so lots of experience with that would be awesome, but if you have solid experience with any major Javascript ES6 framework you won’t find it to hard to switch to Ember. Automated tests are written in ember-test (qunit) and Cypress and they are run on Travis CI.

Our API backend runs on Django Rest Framework, so experience with that is a plus.
