Experienced Frontend Developer

Bakken & Bæck is a digital product development and design studio working out of Oslo, Amsterdam, Bonn and London. In close collaboration with ambitious clients, we design and build digital solutions and businesses from end to end. You might have seen some of our work for Vipps, Coinbase, IKEA Everyday Experiments, and Bee Home.

When we are not making world-class digital products, we are dedicated to making a friendly and inclusive workplace. We go on trips, attend conferences and throw events together on a regular basis, and we are always committed to cultivate a company that embraces differences. We strongly believe in flexibility, and know that creativity doesn’t necessarily always happen between 9 and 5.

At Bakken & Bæck you’ll be given a lot of freedom while creating easy-to-use products by solving complicated problems. This means managing your own priorities, trying out new things and working a flexible hours' scheme.

About the team

Our frontend team is a group of passionate developers, who work closely with designers, engineers, product owners, writers and strategists to create excellent user interfaces and experiences. We try to be adaptable and curious when designing solutions, rather than locking ourselves in a certain tech stack. We believe this helps us to stay innovative in our pursuit of constant self-development.

Perks and Benefits

We take great pride in making Bakken & Bæck a friendly and inclusive workplace, and we care for both your professional and personal well-being. Here are some of the things you can expect if you join us:

  • Doing things together
    Working across offices, we like to get together as often as we can. Yearly trips, meet-ups, parties, dinners or even work on an interesting project. We’ve previously hosted a one-day conference called An Interesting Day and we have an event series called DDD (Define, Design, Develop) where we invite people from different industries to talk about a specific theme.

  • Power your own ideas
    Do you have a project you've always dreamed of? A company you admire, or a problem you are dying to solve? At BB you'll have a say in what projects we take on.

  • Remote when you need
    Currently a lot of our team members are working from home due to the pandemic. However once things return to normal, you’ll still be very welcome to occasionally work remotely. We try our best to keep location from obstructing our cross office collaboration.

  • Parental leave and baby bonus
    We got the moms and dads in the company to design our very own “baby kit”, that includes a €2000 bonus, so you can get a head start on your new parental adventures.

  • Keep it healthy
    We provide an extensive support package that includes a solid health insurance, sponsored therapy sessions, access to physiological treatment and a lot more.

  • Conferences and courses
    You'll get a yearly budget of €1500 to go wherever you need to stay inspired and learn new things.
