Web Frontend Developer (d/f/m)

This position is not available anymore. If you are interested in working with us, please have a look at our list of currently open positions.

We are simulogics, a small independent game studio located in Germany. We craft simulation games for experts. Right now, we are working on our second browser-based economy simulation MMO, Prosperous Universe (

For this and other projects we are seeking a frontend mastermind who can combine technology and design to build beautiful and dynamic web interfaces that work across devices.

We are open to a wide range of diverse candidates from a variety of professional and personal backgrounds. If you doubt some of your qualifications, please get in touch with us and apply anyway.

This will be a remote contract but, if you prefer, working from our office near Darmstadt is possible as well.

The contract will initially be limited to a duration of 12 months. We seek team members residing in Germany and employed under German jurisdiction. Applications from freelancers require that you are willing to enter a German employment contract for the duration of the project. Applications from sub-contractors and outsourcing companies cannot be accepted.

Your Responsibilities

  • Write robust and sustainable code for complex frontend projects.
  • Take the expert interface of Prosperous Universe to the next level by making it work on tablets and mobile devices.
  • Translate lots of features and high information density into beautiful yet usable interfaces.
  • Coordinate with backend developers, UI/UX designers, community managers and game designers to constantly improve the UI and UX of our new and existing games.

Your Profile

  • You are a positive, nice and friendly person that enjoys working in a team with others and are a general pleasure to be around.
  • You feel at home in the JavaScript ecosystem and have real-world experience with frameworks like React, Redux and Webpack.
  • You are able to take an idea from 2D mockup to well-structured, responsive and cross-browser LESS/SASS code.
  • You are driven to write beautiful, maintainable and robust code and to avoid unnecessary complexity.
  • You are aware of and able to master the challenges of getting things done in a completely remote environment, setting your own goals and managing your own time.
  • Your workflow is well developed, structured and you can even teach the team a thing or two about your job.
  • You speak and write conversation-level English.

Speaking German is a plus but not a requirement, as are any backend development skills, experience with 2D and 3D design tools, knowledge of WebGL/shader development or previous work with static site builders like Jekyll or Hugo.

Your Benefits

  • Lots of creative freedom and actual responsibility.
  • Work from home (or from wherever you like) and on your own schedule.
  • Be part of a small and tight-knit team with a no-bullshit attitude.
  • Ability to work part-time (anything between 60% and 100%).

This position is covered by public funding and will initially be limited to a duration of 12 months (or possibly longer, depending on weekly hours). Given financial viability we plan to maintain this position indefinitely beyond this initial timespan.
