The position

Job description

In the Czech Republic, we are known as Livesport, but globally, people recognize us primarily as Flashscore. We welcome over 110 million users each month, offering them results, statistics, and news from more than 35 sports. At peak times, our platform handles over 2 million requests per second.

With a huge monthly volume of page views (up to 5 billion), we place great emphasis on optimizing React rendering, data transfer optimization, and backend load management. Even a small mistake can cause significant embarrassment; therefore, we need to write code that scales well and is easily testable.

In our frontend team, you also have the opportunity to work on other projects for which we've chosen a new tech stack. We are looking for a mid-level React developer. If you're interested in contributing to the further development of a website that is practically unrivaled in the Czech Republic, read on to find out what awaits you with us.

What will you do?

  • Modifications and implementation of new features for our flagship product Flashscore.

  • Working on new projects that we are starting or planning to undertake.

  • Maintaining and refactoring existing code.

  • Improving the approaches and methods we use on the website. We value every new idea.


Preferred experience

What are we looking for?

  • You have solid experience with React, TypeScript, and the version control system GIT.

  • You understand the concept of SSR, and you know what can be done on the server versus what needs to be managed in the client browser.

  • You are an experienced front-end web developer. Your understanding of backend development concepts is a welcome bonus.

  • You are capable of properly testing your code.

  • We are team players and we are learning a lot of new stuff all the time. We would appreciate these values.

  • You won't be intimidated by our new tech stack, as illustrated by the diagram.

We will be extra happy if you have

  • Knowledge of CDN benefits, when it is appropriate to use, and when it is not.

  • Understanding of the concept of server side rendering, as React is gradually transitioning towards it.

  • Awareness of LESS and SASS.

  • Experience with CI/CD in GitLab.

  • Basic skills in web performance optimization (core web vitals, react.memo, code splitting) and accessibility.

What can you expect in return?

  • Diverse Work: Developing new products, creating new features, maintaining existing projects, working on our UI kit, adding accessible components, and more. All of this takes place in an environment unique by its number of users and the load it puts on the platform's performance.

  • 🎓You'll have enough time for personal growth and education with unlimited opportunities, including training and conferences around the world—not just as an attendee.

  • 💰Annual bonuses of up to 20% of the yearly salary and exceptional rewards.

  • 💻First-class equipment, from ergonomic workplaces with height-adjustable desks to top-notch hardware. You have the option to choose between Mac and Dell. A phone of your choice with an unlimited data plan is also included.

  • 🌿Offices in Nové Butovice with parking, two fitness centers, and a relaxation zone with table football or darts. We work in an environment that supports both your professional and personal well-being.

  • 🎉Several events per year—from meetups and regular sports tournaments every month to unforgettable Christmas parties where you can spend time with colleagues outside of work.

  • 🍔Restaurant credit in our building so you can enjoy excellent food comfortably and without worries.

  • 🌴Of course, there's a referral bonus for recommending a colleague and 25 days of vacation.

Who will you meet at the selection process?
