Working at Grape
We value high code quality in terms of readability, reusability and maintainabilty the same way we value speed and efficiency of development. We prefer composition over inheritance, functional over object oriented.
Your development tasks consist 50% of chat client webdesign, 30% of templating and design on landing pages, blogs, etc. and 20% of conceptual work, illustration and mockuping.
We value participation in open source. We are not just using open source projects, we try to give something back. We encourage developers to release reusable parts of their code under an open source license. You can spend up to 20% of your working time on open source projects we use.
Tools and libraries we use (to name a few):
Stylus CSS compilers
Babel (ES2015, stage-0)
React and Redux

You’ll work closely with all different team members at Grape to speed up our front-end development to build new features and products. You will be shipping code to thousands of active users every day.
