As a Frontend Developer within our creative tools team Kino, you will build our creative tools for our customers that depend on our image and video templates as part of automating and scaling their advertising. These tools enable our users to generate images and videos on a large scale, which is a flagship feature of our product and making Kino to be at the core of Smartly’s product offering. 
We mostly work with technologies such as: React, Redux, TypeScript, Node.js, PostgreSQL and  Redis.
We are focusing right now on building the next version of our image template solution, which will make it more similar to our video template solution. We are also always building improvements to our editors based on the feedback from our users. Our templating solutions are in heavy use: during peak times, we've rendered 16 billion (16 000 000 000) images on hundreds of servers monthly.
