Job Description

As we are growing quickly, we have recently decided to reorganize our tech teams. Until now, all web development has been handled by our full-stack developers who were working on both the front and back end development.

Recently we've decided to create a whole new team dedicated to the frontend development of our website. We are looking for an experienced React developer who is willing to lead this new team and help us maintain and improve our website.

This is a brand new role in a brand new team. You will work on an existing project, utilize best practices and established processes while receiving support from the original team of full-stack developers who worked on our website, your future manager being one of them.

This role will involve many ongoing and exciting future projects, like incorporating data visualization, brand design changes, creating CRM-like features, and many more upcoming projects.
We care about listening to and helping each other to grow as a team and ultimately offering the best product possible for our users.

Your missions:

  • Develop product increments on our frontend SPA;
  • Review the work of the team with a focus on feature quality and maintainability;
  • Fix any bug you may encounter;
  • Improve the test suite from unit tests to end-to-end tests;
  • Write specifications, Architecure Decision Records and relevant technical documentation;
  • Answer to technical questions and requests from other teams at PhantomBuster.

About the technical stack:

  • Our website is developed using React and uses recent features like hooks and contexts
  • We are using TypeScript with strict rules
  • Automated CI/CD testing with Cypress
  • Well documented and organized codebase
  • Few minutes to run in production
  • Migrating to Tailwind for CSS


  • Slack, GitHub, CircleCI, JIRA, Indicative, AWS Datalake, Contentful, Sentry

  • You have an appetite for meaningful code reviews.
  • You have good coding practices: Git, Testing, Documentation, CI/CD.
  • You have knowledge of the agile Scrum methodology.
