55 Degrees is looking for a talented Front-End Developer to join us in our Malmö office and help us in our mission to help teams around the world get more done with less stress.

Our applications are used by teams at Samsung, Toyota, Lockheed Martin, NBC Digital, Singapore Airlines, King, Starbucks, and more. We are focused on serving our customers, wherever they are, from Sweden whilst maintaining balance in our lives.


About the Role

In this role you'll use React and other current technologies to build and improve the apps in our future product lines and modernizing any legacy code in our current products. You won't just be a code monkey! We want you to be part of the conversation to decide what we build, how we build it, how we test it, and how we support it.

Testing is critical to maintain the quality of our products. You’ll help implement automated testing of the product line and execute manual testing when needed. You will occasionally help with customer support, talking directly to customers and learning how they actually use the products you build. 

You'll work in a small, engaged team. In fact, you'll be employee number 5. You'll work from the office 40% of the time, with remote work an option for the remainder. Occasional travel may be required for key conferences in Europe and/or the United States.

About you

You value crafting well-tested, clearly-written code in order to deliver the right solution into your customers' hands. You want to do more than just "get the job done." You want to leave things better than you found them. You like to learn and are eager to jump in and help when the team is presented with a challenge.

You are excited about working in a small team where you are more than another worker. You can communicate technical concepts to both technical and non-technical co-workers and customers. You value talking to customers when you have the chance, to validate your assumptions about what you're building.

You currently reside in Sweden and have the right to work there.

If you love front-end technology, you take a sense of ownership in your work, and our values resonate with you, then we want to hear from you!

Your day one qualities and skills..

  • 3+ years of web development experience in an agile, cross-functional team using TypeScript and/or Javascript and REST APIs
  • Proficiency in using React to develop and implement highly responsive applications and components
  • Experience developing complex apps with intuitive user interfaces
  • Fluency in written and spoken English. (But, you don’t have to be perfect!)
  • A passion for learning and sharing

We'll be excited if you..

  • Have experience with working on SaaS applications
  • Have experience developing applications that integrate with Atlassian Jira and/or Azure DevOps
  • Have a passion for effective and sustainable practices and are knowledgeable about Lean and Agile practices.
  • Have experience crafting an amazing user experience
  • Have a passion of validating customer ideas and running experiments

Working at 55 Degrees

  • Learn from a small, but amazingly talented group of professionals
  • Experience transparency into all aspects of the organization
  • Split time between working from the office and working remotely
  • Give back to the local community via 3 volunteer days a year
  • Competitive pension and insurance packages
  • Thirty vacation days annually, plus generous holiday observances
  • Annual wellness benefit
  • Free coffee, tea, espresso drinks, and soda in the office
  • Go home early on fridays in the summer!

People over perfection

If you are excited about this role but not sure if you meet all of the criteria, please apply.

We value awesome people over anything else, so go ahead and apply - we'd love to hear from you.
