Job description

You'll be working on our Web platform and contribute to how our customers and partners experience Tiqets.com. You will make sure the main website is fast, especially on mobile devices. You'll keep the codebase clean and maintainable.

We believe that development is a people-oriented process. You'll work closely with the product owner, designer and back-end engineers of your team. We work in an agile way, learning from the needs of our customers and partners, and adapting to them.

Here are some real examples of the work we've done lately that might help you get an idea of what you'd do:
* Build a new checkout flow
* Plan and execute a migration of the codebase to Typescript, allowing new features to be developed in parallel
* Adapt the portals that our suppliers use for mobile devices
* Implement a new payment flow, to comply with the new PSD2 mandate
* Plan and implement A/B tests
* Keep a technical debt backlog, and ensure it's paid
* Work with the operations team to serve all assets from a CDN
* Implement a client for our tracking and A/B testing tool

This is a sample of what we do, but we don't have all the answers. Your experience and background will join ours and shape the tasks that you'll handle
