Experienced Frontend Developer



Planday's workforce management platform improves the lives of shift workers across the globe by digitizing and integrating systems and administrative tasks; helping save time and money to focus on the things that really matter.

Every day our engineers design, develop, test, release, operate and measure the Planday product under the Agile philosophy, and in so doing, redefine the interaction between businesses and employees around the world.

We are now looking for a skilled frontend developer to join our Copenhagen HQ. In this role, you will join an international, highly motivated, cross-functional and self-driven product team that includes developers, designers and product managers.

We trust that you understand how your technical solutions contribute to realizing a company vision, and that you have a passion for interacting with many different people to achieve a goal. We are looking for an engineer who enjoys innovation, challenging the status quo, and taking great pride in building products used by thousands of people all over the world.

As our ideal candidate, you have the ability to:

  • Collaborate with (and learn from) colleagues who have a profound understanding of other disciplines like design, project-management and back-end API development; in highly agile teams
  • Assess the feasibility of feature requests, design wireframes, and help guide project owners and designers into the most optimal solutions
  • Implement cutting-edge frontend applications for our SaaS platform, in close collaboration with our UI/UX team and other frontend developers
  • Build, maintain and extend our internal frontend packages, including an extensive React UI component library
  • Optimize and refactor existing code base, to deliver the best possible performance and quality to our end users


From a technical perspective, your success in this role will depend on your:

  • Understanding of HTML/CSS and JS (frameworks, React, Vue or Angular)
  • REST API experience (legacy API’s)
  • UX experience
  • Experience with version control systems (Subversion and/or Git)
  • English communication skills
  • Subscription to agile ways of working (we release to production multiple times a day)
  • Team spirit, curiosity to learn and desire for improvement

Beneficial, but not required, would be:

  • Experience with type checkers (TypeScript or FlowType)
  • Microservice architecture knowledge
  • Experience with accessibility (WCAG, double A)
  • .NET Core experience (as support for our Backend Developers)
  • Experience with Webforms frontend

Please note that, due to COVID-19 considerations, at this time we are forced to give preference to candidates already located within Denmark, and ideally already living in (or able to easily relocate to) Copenhagen.


At Planday, we know that happy people power great businesses. We strive to provide a career-defining workplace for our engineers based on the values of transparency, communication and flexibility; while maintaining a Scandinavian approach to work-life balance. We celebrate each other’s achievements and differences, and encourage each other to learn and grow.

In this role you will see the immediate benefits of your work every day, in the value you create for our customers around the world.

As a standard, our office hours and locations are flexible, our tech stack is cutting edge and our engineering work is supported by dedicated in-house scrum masters and agile evangelists (not to mention a good lunch diet).
