Solarwinds Inc. Senior Front End Prototyper in Brno, Czech Republic

Opportunity Details:


Hello, we are SolarWinds and we are glad that you clicked on our job offer, but first we would like to clarify that SolarWinds is not solar power energy plant – we are a multinational software development company (having a startup spirit) that creates cool IT management software that our customers love.


What would you do?

You will be working on our Design System platform and helping to build HTML prototypes .

The goal of Design System is to provide set of common UI components and flows designed and built by UX/UI Designers and Front End development teams for developers across the whole company so they are able to build consistent and easy to use products faster. In the future we plan most of our products to be based on the components.

The common design language is critical to our users to get consistent experience throughout the product base.

You will be part of team of talented UX/UI designers closely cooperating with front end engineering teams building consistent, simple and easy to use solutions to very unique problems.

As a Front end prototyper you will be dealing mainly with front end but it will be necessary to understand how the backend operates in order to fetch data and deploy your prototypes. You will be developing reusable solutions for digital system and you will also participate in helping to build interactive prototypes to be tested with our real users.

What will you use?

The main technologies you will use are: HTML5, JavaScript (Type script), CSS, Sass or Less. Knowing AngularJS is a plus.

The tools we use on daily basis are: Git, your favorite editor/IDE, Photoshop/Illustrator, Axure, any of your other preferred development tools.

We are Agile (Scrum).

In addition, we will be examining cutting edge technologies that will push our products’ excellence even further. If you have the same passion for technology as we do, you just have found the right place!


What do we expect you to know/have?

We want you to have commercial experience (at least 1 years) in development focused on web front end. It would also be great if you have some basics of server-side development and debugging in NodeJS and/or C#.

You need to have skills to develop clean code and follow commonly used best practices e.g. unit testing, automation testing.

Most of all we want you to be an enthusiastic, talented and happy engineer, developing great products, just as we are.

Also, because you are reading this job description in English you should have fluent written and verbal English skills as we are a multinational company.

The primary key for us is that you are a team player and hard worker still willing to learn new skills.

What awaits you besides top technology and great coworkers?

Among the many benefits are a competitive salary, bonuses, and growth opportunities.

We promote self-education and support you in learning new things – through conferences, learning tutorials and mentors. You can enjoy comfortable office spaces with free and tasty coffee, snacks, fruits, game rooms, soft chairs, billiards, Wii and Xbox 360.

You can bike to work and find colleagues who enjoy the same sports as you do.

We provide Flexi Passes, pension or life insurance benefits, and flexible working hours
