Who we are

Catawiki hosts weekly auctions for collectors. Examples of items that we have auctioned off in the past include a lock of Napoleon’s hair, a mammoth skeleton, various large meteorites, and the most expensive Lego set ever produced. Our website is visited millions of times every month by our registered users worldwide.

Though we only started a few years ago, our mission to make unique items available to everyone is already becoming reality. The Catawiki offices across Europe house a dynamic, fast-growing and open organisation. Catawiki has a real ‘hands-on’ mentality, with a casual and friendly atmosphere. We share a strong team-spirit, and all of our inspired employees are motivated to use their own personal talents and skills as part of a whole.

We are very proud to be the first Benelux company to have received an investment from the famous Accel Partners (first venture capital investors in Facebook, as well as Dropbox, Spotify, and Etsy).

What you will do

As a Front-end developer, you have an excellent feel for design, and are able to implement this yourself using HTML/CSS/jQuery. Your implementations work on all browser types and are fully responsive.

You’ll be part of an agile development team of 15 developers and will mostly be developing software. In addition, you will interact with our back-end developers, our marketing division and Catawiki’s users as you develop new functionality.

Who you are

A driven Front-end developer needs good communicative skills, a Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in information technology, and a portfolio of multiple high quality designs. Naturally, you’ll need to be familiar with the following:

  • HTML5/CSS3/Javascript/jQuery
  • The quirks of modern and less up to date browsers
  • Responsive design
  • Interaction and visual design
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails, SASS, HAML and AngularJS would be really cool too.

You’re constantly looking for new techniques to help improve our apps. You enjoy A/B testing these apps in order to calibrate or evaluate new features.

What we offer

An exciting job in a young, fast-growing, dynamic & international organisation. We offer a good salary and suitable terms of employment, as well as a company Macbook. In addition we will make sure you have a soft landing should you have to relocate to the Netherlands.
