Frontend Developer

Mid-level Frontend Developer to hustle with JS and React

We are strengthening our team with a Typescript/React Frontend Dev with at least 2 years of relevant experience. It’s a plus if you can match designs using HTML + CSS or Tailwind. This role can be tailored according to your interests and strengths. If you aren’t super confident in TS but would like to learn, please apply.

In this role, you’ll work with many diverse web, SPA and capacitor hybrid mobile apps which are built with React or plain vanilla JavaScript. You will join six other Frontend/React devs. On project teams you join some of the best Ruby backend devs and some seriously talented designers. 

"I [created] a workplace where I and others would really enjoy working at. Despite our growth, this is still true today and employees are at the center of what we do." - Kisko founder, Antti Akonniemi

We are run by-developers-for-developers. Together with the team, you will take part in building Kisko to be one of the most trusted partners in the field.

This is not just about code.

We strive to offer our customers the best software buying experience. We make this possible by appreciating our talent and maintaining an excellent employee experience. You’ll work closely with the decision makers and help them navigate the digital world. You can read more about our past projects here.

What we are:

  • Well known and involved Finnish Ruby and Rails agency
  • Diverse and inclusive group of 30 people from different backgrounds
  • Primary working language is English

Kisko Labs is not:

  • A “Body renting” house
  • Sending employees out to arbitrary client teams or offices
  • Battling with someone else’s weird and esoteric tech

Problems solved can’t hold our interest. We celebrate the unknown. We live for the uncertain.

“Most boring thing is a solved Rubik's cube.” - Antti Salonen, CEO of Kisko

Kisko Labs is a place for doers, makers and craftspeople. We appreciate agile ways of working, with a strong sense of autonomy and dislike for hierarchies and unnecessary bureaucracy. 

If you have interest in Ruby backend or frontend design, that is something that is possible too. We encourage you to influence our ways of working, experiment/share/discuss ideas on tech choices, and processes. At Kisko we serve the customer by making the process easy to understand. And we serve our developers providing a highly enjoyable DX.

“We are a company that creates technical solutions using Rails as backend, React as frontend and Scrum as a project management tool. But none of that is set on stone, from time to time we should take some time to reflect what tools we use and why and should we try out something new” - Eetu Mattila, software developer

Come make yourself at home at Kisko.
