Full-time

About the role

Ambassadors Lab is an international team of technology enthusiasts working on new products and workflows that change how the marketing industry works.

Our key software product – and what you’ll be working on – is Cube, a creative production platform that offers digital asset management, creative collaboration and creative automation solutions used by leading brands and advertising agencies such as Squarespace, Booking.com and 180.

As part of our frontend development team, your key responsibility will be building reusable UI components. Like all developers in the Lab, you’ll be in charge of your own code that’s clean, easily maintainable and of high quality. This means writing, testing and deploying features, and iterating based on QC feedback.

We are a growing, friendly team, so this is an opportunity to have a high impact on the product and collaborate with people from various disciplines. Day-to-day you’ll work with the frontend team lead, the product design team, and the backend team.

Do you have outstanding programming skills and a passion for developing beautiful, innovative applications? Then this role might be for you.
