Lead Frontend Engineer

We are looking for a product-focused​ & driven lead frontend engineer to join us and help deliver on our vision – becoming the most trustworthy online health company in the world.

Are you someone who likes to make the world a better place by helping others, and not content going to work designing yet another service that people don't really need? 

Our mission

Diet Doctor was founded by Andreas Eenfeldt (M.D.) in 2007, with the long-term goal of empowering people everywhere to dramatically improve their health. More than one billion people suffer from health issues related to type 2 diabetes and obesity, for which they're often personally blamed and rarely given the support they deserve. We aim to change that.

We’re fully funded by our members, so we don't need to show any ads, sell any products, or take any industry money. This also means that we have zero external investors, and are instead owned by the 30+ people who actually work here – and we offer all employees the possibility to buy a stake in the company regularly.

What have we achieved so far?

  • Profitability for years, self-funded, no VC investment.
  • The by far largest low-carb site and one of the largest health sites in the world.
  • 12 million monthly visits (doubling our traffic year over year).
  • About 70k paying members.
  • Top Google ranking for our segment.

What's in it for you?

  • The opportunity to lead and continue to grow the Site team, while of course spending most of your time being hands-on and coding.
  • Working in a culture where we try to optimise happiness by keeping track of employee satisfaction (Officevibe), using a minimalist workflow process (Kanban), minimising meetings, and allowing for long uninterrupted blocks of work-time via our dedicated Engineering Focus Time™ slots.
  • Since we're still a smallish team, your work will have a big impact from day one – you'll be able to grow both personally and professionally while collaborating with others to evolve and refine our product. And if you have a strong urge to attend a course or a conference to further enhance your skills, the company will naturally foot the bill.
  • Owning a meaningful part of the company outright, through our regular employee stock offering.

What you'll do

  • Leading the Site team, being in charge of the frontend architecture, and helping decide the roadmap for how we improve and develop our platform and product going forward.
  • Helping us shape the future of our tech stack. We're in the starting blocks of building the next generation of our platform, and you will play an important role in this.
  • Being creative and part of brainstorming how we can further improve our development and release processes, sharing insights from your previous experiences.

Who you are

  • You have a passion for crafting beautiful code, with a focus on readability, testability, and maintainability.
  • Deep knowledge and experience with modern frontend technologies, and the curiosity to learn new things.
  • You have a sharp eye and a strong intuitive sense of what constitutes great and usable design (using collaborative tools such as Figma or InVision), with a laser focus on making things as simple as possible to use but also lively and beautiful to behold.
  • We assume you have experience with a modern tech stack like the one we're using (for example AWS, Kubernetes/Docker, CircleCI, and React).
  • You think it’s important to work with people that you can learn from, and to also help others by sharing from your own experience, and you want to be part of building such a team as the company grows.
  • Finally, you are someone who wants to do their part in truly making the world a better place for everyone.
