De Voorhoede

front-end developers

Who we are

At the Voorhoede, we build apps, websites and other user interfaces using web technology (HTML, CSS and JavaScript). Providing a stellar user experience is our first priority.

We are champions of performance, accessibility, progressive enhancement and progressive web apps. We strive to get new technology running in production as soon as possible — all the while making sure it works on all devices and in every browser. We take a modular approach to development, be it in a ‘living style guide’, or directly in an existing code base. We make sure our code scales, is robust, maintainable and transferable.

Not an easy task. That’s why we are looking for experienced front-end developers who can help us deliver this kind of quality.

Our team consists of 20 front-­end developers, including 3 senior front­-enders who fulfill the role of tech lead in most projects. Our projects are for large clients like Funda, De Persgroep, eBay, ABN AMRO and smaller clients like Bionieuws, WeCity, DMC and Delft Hyperloop. Usually we work at our clients’ offices. On Fridays the whole team works from our own office in Amsterdam. We use those days to work on projects, experiment, do workshops and expand our knowledge via our Voorhoede Academy and code talks. We close up shop at the end of the week with drinks and some bad taste in music.
