Job Description

We're looking for a frontend designer! Spatie is a team of architects and builders, tinkering on the front line; an open-source mastodon operated by a highly talented bunch the size of a soccer team. We purposefully keep the company small but knowledgeable.

What does this bring to you? Learn and grow fast in a respectful, almost familiar environment. Yet you'll have an enormous impact on users worldwide. Together we'll decide where we'll go next.

Rest assured: there will be laughs and great food along the way.

Responsibilities

We don't take on just any new project but only those where we all can learn something new. We love to work with the latest and greatest.

Here are some examples of exciting stuff you could be working on:

  • In-house applications for the Laravel ecosystem like Ray, Mailcoach or Flare
  • Web apps for Tomorrowland
  • A large community platform for a US client
  • The design of online courses for a Laravel audience
  • Our enormous collection of open-source packages and projects
  • You'll have a say in what you'll be working on. No really, we áre listening.

If you're curious to see what we create, check out a selection of work on our homepage.

And you?

  • You will be working at the front-of-the-front-end (see this definition by Brad Frost).
  • You help defining personality for our own products — sketch logos, pick fonts, define color - palettes, provide illustrations or create short animations.
  • You can discuss and design UIs — from idea, to prototype, to implementation. We use paper, Figma and Illustrator, but are open to any tool that gets the job done.
  • You design and implement concrete marketing actions: banners, newsletters or one-page promo sites.
  • You love to play with new technologies, try out new things that won't make production or tinker on your secret side project.
  • You write fluent HTML, (Tailwind) CSS and pieces of JavaScript. You know a bit of Git.
  • You can speak Dutch and you love Italian food.

Languages

  • Dutch
  • English

Benefits

  • A full-time position in a fostering environment
  • A remuneration package with a competitive salary and extras tailored to your personal needs: eg. an e-bike, bike allowance, hardware, internet at home, pension plan, additional holidays …
  • Health insurance
  • Meal and Eco vouchers
  • Velo card for public bikes in Antwerp
  • Apple laptop + second screen, most recent iPhone or Android smartphone
  • Bose noise-cancelling headphones
  • Any software you prefer or need
  • Partially remote work to help you get in the zone or combine work and family
  • A modern office in the centre of Antwerp, right in between 2 train stations
  • Standing desks and a cool roof terrace
  • A genuine drive to learn from each other: code reviews, in-house presentations and chit-chat on Slack
  • A flat company structure where you can make a clear difference
  • Kiva budget for micro-loans
  • Authentic espresso & fresh fruit in the office
  • Board game evenings for those who like to play
  • Monthly Italian lunch with the team; wine from a chicken jug

Interview process

  • You can send us a brief motivation why you'd like to work at Spatie together with your CV. Extra kudos if you can send us some of your work.
  • Next; we'll set up a short interview with one of the company owners and a frontend developer. We'll have a chat and see if there's a match.
  • There will also be a final interview with the two other company owners.
  • We'll offer you a contract proposal if everything checks out!
