Principal JavaScript Engineer (d/f/m) in Berlin

AUTO1 Group GmbH veröffentlicht


Experience the company from end-to-end and build products with highly complex business logic with direct impact on company profits. As a Principal JavaScript Engineer you will assist in defining new products, features, and services for our clients working closely with developers and stakeholders in an agile environment.

Our JavaScript engineers play a central role in the development of a variety of consumer products, overcoming a range of various challenges-from building bleeding edge consumer facing front-ends through breakthrough backend online marketing and ad-tech technologies to the very base of the infrastructure that supports the millions of daily visits we have on our platform. We have a diversified, collaborative and tightly knit IT team, coming from over 60 countries which is focused on providing our customers with an exceptional online and on-site experience.

What you will do:

  • Ownership and Inspiration: Technological prototyping, platform architecture, solution design, development, quality assurance, shipping, monitoring and maintenance are all done by ourselves on 130+ modules and dozens of applications each day.
  • Use your brain (a lot): Use your experience, hands-on and can-do attitudes to solve complex problems in one of the most prolific engineering teams in the vast startup hub of Berlin (1600+ releases in 2017).
  • Raise the bar: As a principal engineer you are our bar. Excellence and skill of all engineers are measured against your experience, mentality and drive on a constant basis. Whenever you push your own limits, you push those of the company as well.
  • Lead the pack: Small temporary project groups or new permanent teams get kicked off on regular basis. We always need leaders being ready to take over a business unit’s services or provide “POC and delivery” on untouched fields.

What you will learn:

  • AUTO1 is disrupting the automotive industry. Most of the things we do have never been done before. Every day we are scaling and tuning the core platform and create tools to launch new green field applications.
  • Cutting edge technology stack and the drive to always think about the next thing to incorporate without getting bloated. We currently use, React, Redux, Webpack, Node.js 8+, npm, Docker, S3, CloudFront, CSS modules and some service workers incorporated in a continuous delivery platform.
  • How to build engineering products with highly complex business logic that have a direct impact on the company's performance.

How you will progress:

  • On the second day most new starters are ready to code.
  • Around two weeks later your first lines of code will most probably hit production.
  • In one month your impact starts to become measurable.
  • After half a year you will have significant domain knowledge of the topics you have been working on and be a contact point on this for all your peers.
  • After one year at AUTO1 you have become a key strategy advisor in questions of Frontend. As a core contributor to central projects and mentor for your primary technology you’re pushing forward on multiple business and technical challenges and drive them to success.

What will you get?

  • Colleagues striving for excellence while using the latest technologies
  • Relocation support to Germany which includes assistance with visa, apartment search and refund of moving costs
  • A beautiful and modern office in the heart of Berlin (Kreuzberg, Bergmannkiez) with free drinks & fruits
  • Team and company events like Hackathons, International Nights, Annual Company Parties, Football, Team Nights and more
  • Attractive discounts on different services like gym, public transport, car purchases and others
  • Flexible working hours
  • Annual salary reviews weaved into our feedback cycle
  • German Language courses for free, in the office
