Job position: frontend developer at Bolster (Rotterdam)

  • Geplaatst op: 19-09-2016


Bolster is looking for a talented frontend developer with serious JavaScript skills, who’d like to join us and help innovate political organizing, independent journalism, ngo fundraising and more.

In this job, you’ll be doing frontend development for our web projects, mostly built with either WordPress & Perikles or developed with React on the Meteor platform.
Although you will increasingly focus on advanced CSS animations and JavaScript wizardry, a fair chunk of your work will consist of adding CSS to HTML to create smart responsive designs.

About Bolster

Bolster is a boutique agency in Rotterdam, the Netherlands: a small team of skilled professionals who choose to work exclusively on challenging and exciting projects that invariably contribute something to society.

Our clients mostly fall in the categories of either politics/unions (GroenLinks, PvdA, FNV, Young & United), journalism (De Persgroep, De Coöperatie, Erasmus Magazine), or arts&culture (het Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum Rotterdam)

What we’re looking for

At Bolster, our ambition is to design and develop platforms that allow for independent journalism, organizing and fundraising to thrive. We need a talented and ambitious frontend developer like yourself to help organizations to tell important, well-crafted stories that inform and engage.

We’re looking for an inquisitive frontend developer with a desire to learn, yet with multiple years of experience under their belt. You should have a decent amount of experience with a number of these languages / technologies / methodologies:

  • Flux (Redux)
  • WordPress theme development
  • Methodologies such as BEM
  • ECMAScript 2015/2016
  • Git
  • React
  • GraphQL

What we have to offer

Bolster offers you a fulltime job (although fewer hours/days could be agreed upon) with decent pay, interesting projects, growth opportunities and reasonable work hours. We proudly adhere to a 9-to-5 mentality: most of us have children to care for, so we like to get serious work done during regular office hours, in order to have enough time for a family and social life.
