Job Details

At Keboola, we’ve built a team culture based on learning, innovation and most importantly trust. As we’ve grown we continue to embrace the startup vibe and foster a fast-paced and challenging environment. What is unique about our company, is that everyone has a voice and is welcomed to use it. We’re global but well connected and agile. Keboola has offices and team members spanning across Europe and North America. Gartner has recognized our company as a Data Operating Systems organization.


We are looking for an experienced JavaScript Engineer (senior or mid-senior level) who wants to make an impact in a growing SaaS-based company. You will work within a small team, taking care of several UI applications and improving their speed, usability, and experience—all of that while cooperating with our design team.


You will also work closely with our backend engineers, discussing our services and providing feedback, so that the UIs will consume data from APIs in the most efficient way and structure. Our design team will provide you feedback for existing applications and propose possible improvements (in terms of UI/UX), and you will implement them.


Also, you will be part of feature calls, where you will discuss new features with our product team.


The team communicates mostly in Czech/Slovak but you must be able to speak with other teams in English. For onboarding, you will receive a set of training materials and descriptions of technologies we use, and will participate in a Keboola onboarding program.



What you’ll do

  • Contribute to the existing UI applications (we are using React) and implement new ones when needed.
  • Take part in the design, implementation, and architecture of new and existing services (e.g., if the backend team needs to change the API you work with, they will consult you about it) as well as the whole platform.
  • Undertake code reviews for members of your team.
  • Be actively involved in designing technical features (participate in design docs).
  • Share knowledge and experience in new areas and technologies with people outside of your team.
  • Work closely with the design team on our new Design System/Component Library and adoption of the library into existing applications
  • Maintain “hosting” for UI applications—our CDN.



What we look for, and the required skills:

  • Over two years of experience as a JavaScript Engineer building UI applications in React or similar frameworks
  • A passion for engineering and problem-solving.
  • Knowledge of standard technologies used to build and provision UI (JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS, etc.—the basic elements).
  • Knowledge of UNIX-based systems, coding, and scripting (mainly when Continuous Integration is involved).
  • Awareness of micro-service architecture (so you will know how/why UI communicates with each of the services).
  • Experience with UI applications monitoring (TTFB, FCP, LCP) and error reporting
  • Experience with deployment of UI applications
  • A technical understanding of concepts and how they fit into the "big picture."


We also require some basic soft skills.



  • Orientation toward results and driving a task from the beginning to the end if needed; a willingness to take ownership.
  • Patience and attention to detail.
  • Being a bug hunter, but knowing what is enough.
  • Readiness to ask for help.
  • Team player, not an independent worker. (We work as a team.)
  • Self-organization and self-discipline.



A little bit more about the opportunity

  • Autonomy within your position. We are focused on outcomes, not micromanaging everything that you do. We love free company movement.
  • Work with great brands both locally and worldwide. Ask us who we were working with!
  • Work with new industry-leading data technologies.
  • The opportunity to create the job you want that fits in with the life you want. We know there is life outside of work, and think fulfillment is achieved when all areas of your life fit together.
  • We believe the best people are a bit weird and have an inner engine that drives them.
  • We strive to push people for career development. There are many traits for a component team person - core Keboola platform tech team, consulting and other “departments” are always open for internal hires!



You can look forward to the following benefits

  • Competitive compensation and employee stock options pre-IPO.
  • Generous paid vacation time. And we mean generous.
  • Cool new offices in the heart of Holesovice in Prague.
  • We are a company born in the cloud means we are relatively location independent. Want to take an extra-long trip while working on the beach (or forest, or desert?), go ahead - make sure to send us a postcard.
  • No set office hours and flexibility (aside from when you are placed on-call to support customers).
