Front-End Engineer

  • full_time
  • Germany


Hello! We’re Clique, a creative studio built for digital transformation. Our team of ~37 people drives creativity across our areas of expertise (strategy, design, engineering) to help organizations build their digital future in a way that makes a real impact.

At Clique, front-end engineers push the boundaries of what’s possible in websites and platforms. We’re so lucky to work with leading organizations like Red Rocks, Northwestern University, Lincoln Park Zoo, McDonalds, USA Volleyball, Apollo Theater, and many others.

Front-end engineers collaborate with industry-leading designers to explore possibilities through visual and interactive mocks using Figma and then translate them into optimized and responsive markup. They’re as comfortable understanding designer mockups as they are executing complex interactions on the newest browser or mobile device, and partner with back-end engineers to see it through.

“Projects are diverse and challenging, always something new to take away from each. Culture is conducive to personal and professional growth, and having fun while doing great work.” – John Droese, Front-end Engineer
