Our work ranges from cross-platform digital solutions, interactive installations to traditional branding and print / art work.

CLEVER°FRANKE is growing steadily and looking for new talent to join and support our team in our head office. We’re looking for ambitious candidates with exceptional skills who are eager to learn, have a sharp eye for quality and an affinity with all things digital. 

As a Front-End Developer your main responsibility is the development of HTML, CSS and JavaScript for our client and internal projects.

It's important that all our developers can get up and running within minutes on any given project. We use Docker to achieve development and production environment consistency.

All code committed to our Git repositories is automatically checked for syntax errors, run through Prettier for a consistent code style and unit tested by our Continuous Integration server. Depending on the branch you work on, your changes are automatically deployed to our development and/or staging servers.

Thanks to our streamlined and automated release process, it's okay for developers to make mistakes. Either they get caught by automated testing or spotted as a bug on the staging environments. Even if a bug sneakily gets past our quality control line a rollback to a previous version is only a click away. Bugs can be resolved quickly and easily without harming the end user experience.


We work a lot with data and our workflow facilitates that. Our applications are written with a data-driven approach, using whatever frameworks and libraries serve our needs best for any given project.

Right now we're very happy using React, utilizing tools such as create-react-app, Next.js or GatsbyJS. That said, we evolve our stack constantly. Do you have a preferred way of working yourself? We're open to exploring multiple options!

Our visualizations on the web are usually written from scratch with the help of the D3 library. Maybe you can help us rethink how we write data visualization with the next generation of JavaScript frameworks?

We have an open office plan with sitting / standing desks, hot desks, a silent room and flexible work schedules. Every day, the team enjoys lunch together in our lunch area/event space and on occasion, a team evening in the city.
