Frontend Developer (M/F/D)

About Us

PicDrop is a privately owned company in the digital industry based in Berlin. Our clients are sophisticated photographers, designers, agencies, and companies to whom we provide a convenient SaaS tool for sending image data. Over 300 million images have been sent with PicDrop so far.

Since its foundation in 2014, we have been working hard to make our users happy. In our daily work, we consistently focus on the needs of our users, which will be reflected in your work and meaningful tasks. With you, we would like to expand our team for a long-term advancement.

The Challenge

We develop a Web app that is run in the browser. It is in no way inferior in look and feel to native apps and has the advantage that neither download nor installation are necessary.

In development, we therefore work with modular software structures rather than building a website. For this, we currently mix server templates and pure JavaScript views in the frontend. We will focus more on the use of established frameworks like React or VueJS.

In the backend we use PHP with its own framework and different microservices in different languages (Java and Go etc.).

The task in the frontend is to keep pace with the constantly evolving web standards and conditions of modern browsers.

Your Tasks

  • Implementation of new functions together with your development team
  • Modernization of existing application parts of our frontend
  • Joint further development of the overall architecture with the entire developer team
  • Optimization with regard to web standards and performance

  • Participation in our entire development process
