JavaScript Engineer

Want to work in a dynamic product team and keep developing your JavaScript and frontend skills? This could be the job for you!


Productive was created by industry veterans behind a 350-person agency and launched in 2014 as a bootstrapped, profitable, and proud product business.


As a JavaScript Engineer at Productive, you will be responsible for developing Productive’s front end applications. This includes our main web app, marketing website, mobile and desktop apps, and a few other services—all written in JavaScript.

Productive’s front end stack is mostly based on Ember.js, ES6, Babel, Node, Handlebars, SASS, and more. Our user base is growing rapidly each month, so you need to be able to balance your development process between delivering new features, optimizing for performance, security, and maintaining a stable code architecture.


Some of Your Day-to-day Responsibilities Will Include…

Planning, designing, developing, and testing new features

Writing automated tests

Deploying to production several times a day

Collaborating with the back end team on API design

Refactoring legacy solutions and building a better CI architecture

Squashing those pesky bugs

Reviewing pull requests from other team members and getting your pull requests reviewed

Brainstorming on how to make Productive better

Communicating with customers via Intercom

With the rest of the team, you will build a resilient, micro service-oriented architecture and deploy your code multiple times a day without the fear of breaking things. This journey will be challenging as the product scales, but hey—you’ll be surrounded by great people and work in a relaxed atmosphere.

You can work out of our Croatian office in Zagreb or remotely.
