Front-End Developer 


We're looking for someone to join our team as a Front-End Developer and help us build complex, data-driven user interfaces on the web from our studio in Utrecht. You have a knack for JavaScript and would enjoy learning frameworks such as Next.js or Svelte.



CLEVER°FRANKE is an enthusiastic, multi-disciplinary team of 40 + people with 11 different nationalities from across the world and we use English as a primary language to communicate and collaborate. We are interaction designers, visual designers, developers, project managers, data analysts and others. All with a passion for what we do. We are curious about the world around us, and apply the same curiosity to our work and projects. 

As a Front-end Developer you will create complex and cutting-edge interactive dashboards, microsites and digital products for our clients and internal projects. Creating new components, interacting with API’s, managing application state and tweaking animations to perfection are part of your day-to-day job. Our work focuses on building server-side rendered applications with a data-driven, declarative approach. We’ve gone all-in on component based development.

You will work in close collaboration with our design team and your colleague developers. You are comfortable working in a fast paced environment, have a keen, analytical eye and a pragmatic but flexible approach.

Our technology stack is always evolving. We tweak the exact combination of libraries, frameworks and approaches for each project without sacrificing the stability of our solutions. React is our jam right now, and we’re big fans of Next.js. We’ve been enjoying CSS-in-JS for a while and are happy to see those solutions becoming mature with static extraction and typing support. It’s not just JavaScript that we think you need to succeed. All three pillars of the modern web are equally important.

Maybe you can help us rethink how we build, scale and maintain our engineering principles?


We recognize how serverless infrastructure on platforms like Vercel and Netlify are changing the DevOps game. This allows JavaScript to power most of our web applications in the front- and back-end and the pipelines that deploy them. If serverless infrastructure is not an option, we deploy our applications in Docker containers.

All code committed to our Git repositories is automatically checked for syntax errors, ran through Prettier for a consistent code style and unit and integration tested. Thanks to Vercel we have deployment previews for all pull requests, making it a breeze for designers to sign off on UX and visual design before merging to main.

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 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.


At CLEVER°FRANKE we are fortunate enough to work with some of the world's biggest and most exciting clients.


You’re welcome at CLEVER°FRANKE regardless of your appearance, identity or background. It’s not a place you have to 'fit in' but somewhere everyone can feel themselves and be their best to do their best.

Studies suggest that women, and others, tend to hesitate to apply for a job if their CV isn’t a perfect fit. Here, we look for talent and potential — not just formal experience and expertise. So if you like the role and think you could be awesome at it, go ahead and apply.
