Experienced front-end developer

Building powerful visuals requires a unique combination of analytical, creative and communication skills. We are building a team of motivated people who live at the crossroads of these different skills.

We are currently looking for an experienced front-end (or full-stack) developer to help us shape the development branch of Baryon. You will be working together closely with our junior front-end developer to turn the ideas of our clients and concepts of our designer(s) into reality.

You should be:

  • Interested in (learning about) data, charts and maps, and open to continuously learn new data visualization tools and technologies.
  • Ready to work in a small team with big ambitions, and willing to take on a considerable amount of responsibility within the company.

Ideally you have a medior or senior profile, with between 5 and 10 years of experience in a development role. A focus on applications or websites involving data or information design is a big plus.

Some tools we typically use in our development activities are d3.js for the chart creation, Adobe Illustrator and Figma for the design, and Svelte(Kit), React and Next for building the applications. Any new tool you can bring to the table is a plus!

You should be fluent in English. Knowledge of Dutch is a big plus.

What will you be doing?

We guide our clients through a 3-step process: analysis (basic data analysis, desktop research, user interviews, storyline development), concept design (style exploration, creating wireframes and mockups), and development (digital design, front-end development, dashboard building). As a developer, you will mainly be responsible for the development step, but will also think about technical requirements in the analysis step (often together with the client) and the concept design (together with our designer(s)) to explore the possibilities and their feasibility.

We are a small company with high growth ambitions. That means that we cannot offer you an easy job with a fixed task description. You will play a key role within the company, and be responsible for streamlining, optimizing, growing and managing the development branch of the company. Be prepared do deal with clients in sales meetings, brainstorms and design presentations. No worries, we are here to help!

On top of the job diversity, we can offer you one hell of a ride, with lots of challenging opportunities for learning and growing. The ambition is to grow Baryon into a thriving data design agency in the next few years – and you can play a key role in this process!

Our values are:

  • Challenge: we like to tackle complex problems that go beyond the ordinary
  • Diversity: a wide variety of perspectives will always lead to the best results
  • Transparency: we communicate and visualize things as they are – no fluff

We like happy, spontaneous, ambitious people who are not afraid to speak their mind or to go out of their comfort zone. We will do everything we can to fight discrimination based on age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, religion, or political preference.

We can offer you a full-time employment with competitive salary (€ 3500 to € 4000 gross monthly salary based on your experience and the value you can bring to the company), smartphone and laptop. Baryon is based in Gentbrugge, Belgium. A lot of the work can be done from home, but we also offer you a coworking spot where you should work with the rest of the team at least 2 to 3 days a week. No worries, we’ll take care of the public transport costs. We’re also happy to provide you with all the trainings, subscriptions or books you might need to expand your expertise.

One more thing...

Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At Baryon we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
