Job position: Chapter Lead Front-end at Chama the App (Amsterdam)

  • Geplaatst op: 07-01-2019

Chama the App

Technology Development – Amsterdam, Noord-Holland

Lead Front-end Engineer (React)

With a headcount of already 80+ people across the company (Brazil and Netherlands) and still growing the tech & product team in Amsterdam, we would like to add a Lead to the Front-end Chapter with a deep understanding of web technology that will help us bring the Front-end to a higher level.

Our why

In Brazil, and many other countries for that matter, 90% of the population uses gas cylinders to provide their homes with gas for cooking family dinners. However, these gas cylinders need to be replaced every few weeks. The old world distribution model is currently leading but Chama provides an alternative solution in the form of a mobile platform from which Brazilians can choose their preferred dealer based on price, quality or ETA.
