We’re looking for a Ember.js Developer who’s excited to flex their JavaScript/TypeScript skills and develop solutions to our customers’ business problems as a part of our Frontend Development team.

Cobot develops one of the most widely used software solutions globally to manage coworking and flexible workspaces. We built up our reputation for over a decade—and we’ve never stopped building innovative tools for workspaces to excel in the future of work.

You will work with JavaScript and CSS developers to maintain, improve, and extend Cobot’s UI. You’re responsible for building a fast, accessible, and beautiful frontend in Cobot. You will be able to make a direct impact on the quality of our product and the happiness of our users.

You’ll get to work with a complex, mature code base that uses both frontend frameworks like Ember JS and Storybook Components as well as Ruby on Rails, Elixir, etc.

We are looking for a candidate who is curious to learn from us, eager to bring their contributions into our team, and, most importantly, excited to code, code, code.

You will be part of a team that genuinely cares about each other. Our developers understand that learning and sharing knowledge is a part of the job—one of the best parts. We strive for excellence in our work; an attitude that includes constantly improving our team culture to reflect our values such as inclusiveness and a healthy work-life balance.

  • Work across teams with designers, support, and communications specialists to achieve company-wide goals

  • Take pride in your work, enjoy collaborating with your coworkers, and go home on time

This job requires the ability to occasionally work alongside our team in Berlin. You have the option to work from home (we continue to provide a workspace for anyone on the team who is interested).

When the covid situation allows, a part of your job will include attending team off-sites, coworking industry events, and programming conferences.

  • Ruby on Rails

We recognize there is no "complete" candidate and that you may feel the need for further development in some areas. We encourage you to apply even if your profile does not meet all of the requirements for the role.

We welcome candidates enthusiastic about learning and growing. However you identify and whatever your background, if this looks like a role where you could do work that excites you, we hope you’ll apply!


  • Flexible work hours (36h/week) and a culture that respects your set hours
