For us, frontend development goes beyond creating a pixel perfect website.
The hard part is to design components that allow for change without incurring immense technical debt or require a lot of manual work. It feels good to find a clever solution to a difficult problem. We see engineering as a craft and take great pride in deeply understanding the problem and the technologies we want to use before integrating them. Our codebase is quite precious so code reviews are taken seriously and improvements are celebrated.
Standards, structure and automation are key and we use every tool in the book to enable the most efficient workflow. Prettier automatically formats our code, Typescript makes sure to catch straightforward type errors, babel, webpack, gatsby and the serverless framework are used for bundling. All our infrastructure is automatically deployed using GitLab CI/CD pipelines after running through our extensive test suites. That includes integration as well as unit tests for both, the front- and backend. Every feature branch is automatically published under their own unique url to make the review process as streamlined as possible. On the frontend, we are striving to make every react component viewable and testable in isolation using Storybook. To develop new features we use our style guide to guarantee a consistent customer experience and rapid development.
While all this is a step in the right direction we still see immense room for improvement and expect you to be a driver in this.
