We have recently established a brand-new office in Porto. The Porto Team will contribute to the InterNations mission and vision by architecting, developing, and testing new products.

Our engineering teams architect, develop and test our products. As a Frontend Engineer, your mission is to build awesome user interfaces.

As a member of an international, cross-functional Product Experience Team (PXT), you will architect, implement and test new functionality and maintain existing functionality using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Our PXTs organize themselves using Agile methodologies and you will work closely with your Product Manager and your team on the feasibility of concepts and upcoming changes. You will write automated tests at the unit, integration, and acceptance levels to assure quality and longevity of our products and a sustainable pace for future changes.
