Job & Person Spec
The Mila story

At The Next Web, we touch base with thousands of tech minded minds from around the world. From the hottest Silicon Valley millionaire to a young teenage super coder from Madrid, we love to hear their war stories and write them down.

But we were missing a platform to manage all these contacts.

That’s why we are building Mila. In stead of copy-pasting our way through messy spreadsheets with unorganized contact information, Mila acts as your personal assistant that does it for you. She automatically structures all your business contacts in a magical way, making them easily accessible to you and to your whole team. The perfect way to turn our valuable contacts into the contracts we need to grow our business.

/ Your job

As a front-end developer you’ll be bringing the latest techniques to tweak Mila’s online presence, making sure she looks amazing and get’s those oohh’s and ahah’s from our users. You will be developing new features, writing reliable HTML, CSS and JavaScript (Aurelia) that works on all the browsers and devices that matter. You see the world from our users’ perspective, work with the team to design interactions and features that our users didn’t even know they should be asking for.

/ About us

What if work didn’t feel like working? At Mila, we love what we do. We work with passion and strive to improve something every day. We are based in the heart of Amsterdam in a vibrant community of many other startups. We also offer a fair salary to support your geeky needs. You will regularly meet the people and founders of TNW.
