Frontend Developer

ownCloud is an open-source file collaboration software designed and built to give businesses and individuals sovereignty over their data. With a team of more than 70 people, we develop the ownCloud server, the sync clients, our mobile apps and the web interface to enable secure and effective file collaboration across companies, organizations, administrations, institutions and families. We also implement customized solutions for enterprises and directly manage and maintain ownCloud instances. With over 100 million users worldwide, ownCloud is the market-leading open-source software for content collaboration.

We are looking for a skilled and motivated frontend developer who joins our engineering team to work on our enterprise-grade software. We are currently developing a new web frontend as a single page Vue.js application, including an extension system for custom apps with dedicated functionalities.

Show us what you’ve got:

  • You have profound experience with TypeScript, Vue.js and unit testing with jest
  • Bonus points if you have experience with rollup, accessibility and E2E testing with playwright
  • You have worked in teams that delivered production grade software
  • You like to work in teams and can communicate in English

We offer:

  • Remote work in an open-source company
  • Knowledge transfer with great high profile colleagues
  • Hard- and Software that fits your needs
  • A chance to work on software that matters! For your family, friends, customers and users world wide.

Culture of work:

  • As a company with distributed teams, our people work remote or in our office in Nuremberg, Bavaria. Depending on the job, not everyone’s most productive workspace is in the office – only in rare, special occasions it‘s necessary to be on-site
  • We are hackers, coders and nerds. We have a contagious passion and inner enthusiasm for our work and our role
  • We are constantly on the hunt for new solutions, unexpected connections and unforeseen possibilities. We are open to new experiences, explore new ideas and uncover even the last hack and trick along the way
  • We believe that we are only as good as our next project. We encourage a culture of flat hierarchies, with great opportunities to move things forward. We build on flexibility and a sense of openness to change
  • Being part of the ownCloud team is like joining a tribe. Meet us occasionally after work for a burger or billards. Or, in the current environment, a socially distanced beer in BigBlueButton
  • ownCloud is open source and community-driven. It’s the people who make this place to what it is. Join our quest to give businesses and individuals control over their data. We are looking forward to getting to know you!
