Front-end Software Engineer (Any Stack --> Vue)
We are Kaizen Gaming
Kaizen Gaming is the leading GameTech company in Greece and one of the fastest growing in Europe. Being International with a local approach, the company is currently operating in 6 countries, with the Stoiximan brand in Greece and Cyprus, and with its international brand, Betano in Germany, Romania, Portugal and recently in Brazil. Our aim is to leverage cutting-edge Technology in order to provide the optimum experience to those who trust us for their entertainment. With People at the core of everything we do, our team of 700+ talented and enthusiastic people fuels our international expansion with their passion, maintaining an "eyes-on-the-customer" approach and a unique OneTeam spirit. Continuous improvement is what we strive for, from professional development to team-bonding activities, while being efficient and making things happen is what our team's minds are set on.
Responsibility has been in our DNA right from the start of our operations, back in 2013. Our wide product offering is adapting to our customers' needs, while ensuring that it remains a solely recreational activity. To this end, besides our extensive sports sponsorships programme across markets that varies from popular teams to Olympic Champions, we also deploy a social responsibility programme that focuses on Technology, Safetainment and Sports.
Kaizen is a technology company at heart. We are proud of our engineering culture and our Agile Scrum environment and we are looking for passionate people with a broad set of technical skills and the mindset to tackle difficult challenges and make an impact on our products. Our team works in large-scale applications that serve real-time content to thousands of connected users within a fast-paced growing business.
Most of our sites and services are written in C#/ASP.NET with server-rendered (Razor) views in tandem with jQuery, newer sites and services written in .NET Core with Vue.js for the front-end layer. In both cases our web applications require pixel perfect HTML and modular CSS code that covers the needs of our responsive designs in order to provide a unique experience to our customers. We use Gitlab for code versioning and CI, as well as the Atlassian stack for tickets and documentation.
All UI/Front-end code is written in Vue and Vue.X for state management. We use Jest for our unit tests. APIs are exposed using ASP.NET Core (both HTTP and websocket endpoints).
