Lead Frontend Engineer

Lead Frontend Engineer


Challengermode is an esports platform where gamers meet to compete and socialize around the biggest computer and console games in the world. Our mission is to make esports as accessible for non-professional gamers as regular sports are for regular people. That's why we're building a digital gaming arena for the 21st century. Large and small scale, national or international competitions at their very best. A virtual ball park in everyone's backyard.


We're a Stockholm based tech startup working on an esports platform that offers the most accessible competitive gaming experience for professional and non-professional gamers alike. Working closely with game developers, brands and tournament organizers, we provide an esports platform built to combat a growing disconnect within the esports industry.


We’re looking for a Lead Frontend Engineer that is able to assume the overarching responsibility for the web application's frontend over time. You will also be a key driver in supporting our platform's transition from Angular.js to React.

You must be well versed in one or more frontend web technologies. You have worked with large web applications in the past and have the scars and experiences to show for it (e.g. a proven track-record). You enjoy learning about new technologies and are experienced enough to be able to assess the relative merits of different frameworks and technologies (Vue vs. React etc).

We also think it's great if you are the kind of person who enjoys to code on your free time and views programming as a tool to solve interesting problems - whatever they may be.

Technically, you should have about 5+ years of professional software dev experience and be confident that you meet the requirements.



  • Experienced in frontend development using React and/or Angular.
  • You have an engineering mindset (i.e. problem solving, first principles thinking, understand design and research e.t.c).
  • You are familiar with build systems like Webpack, image and asset managementCDNs.
  • Mastery of HTML and Javascript are a requirement. You should also be familiar CSS.
  • University Engineering or Comp Sci degree - or the experience to make up for that.



  • Experience with building responsive and Progressive Web Apps (PWA).
  • Experience working with Angular or React in larger software projects.
  • Knowledge of server/client-side routing, server-side rendering, client-side templates/navigation, client-side caching.
  • Either experience or understanding of basic (white hat) SEO practices.
  • Gaming! You watch and/or play esports games. It's easier to create great gaming experiences if you understand the users' needs yourself.


  • High performance, skilled and goal oriented colleagues
  • A fun, friendly and inclusive work environment
  • Hands-on, freedom-with-responsibility environment
  • Opportunities for personal growth with varied responsibilities and tasks
  • Competitive Salary
  • Ownership in the company (after 6 months employment)
  • Newly refurbished office located in central Stockholm
  • Did we mention that playing computer games is part of the job?
