Working at Bou

When joining Bou, you'll get to work directly with our 150+ brands, ranging from early-stage companies to more established brands, universities, and nonprofits. And we really do mean directly – we don’t have key account managers or pure strategists at Bou. You'll become a part of an all-hands-on-deck team building brands through marketing, communications, design, and web development.

Your daily tasks

As a developer at Bou, your typical days include tasks like coding websites, documenting your ideas, and scheduling upcoming projects. As we believe in handcrafted solutions, you'll always be encouraged to study new technologies and tools and make your daily work diverse. Your goals won’t only be to empty your Trello board since researching tech and documenting your work is highly valued. If inspiration strikes you might even spend time contributing to open source repositories or spend a few days creating your own.

We’re looking for our next hires to be ready to lead brand work for a client or two from the get-go: guaranteeing that our development work is aligned with the brand, keeping the client happy, and managing projects in a smooth manner.

Skills we require

  • Modern web development stack – We handcraft websites with Node, React and Typescript so being able to do some magic with them would be an optimal starting point. Other useful but not required tools & skills to know include:
    • Advanced knowledge of CSS
    • NextJs or GatsbyJs / Static & Server-Side Rendered
    • Nx / Mono Repositories and extensible dev tools
    • Angular / Web App development
    • Contentful / Sanity / Headless CMS
    • Google Cloud Platform / Backend services
    • Google Analytics and Tag manager / Analytics
  • Understanding the role of design and text – You should have skills (or quickly learn) to use modern web design tools like Figma, Adobe XD or Sketch together with our designers and writers.
  • Animation comes naturally to you – You bring websites alive with beautiful motion – be it smooth transitions, clever hovers, or immersive parallax effects.
  • SEO 101 – We believe that when you are crafting the web, you should know the basics of search engine optimization to deliver websites that are optimized from the start.
  • Quick to understand new industries – We build brands for a great variety of products, services, and companies – from mobile games and quantum computers to electronic performance cars and new textile materials.
  • Working proficiency in English – It will be your first working language as we work with several international brands and communicate in English within our team.

Benefits we offer

  • Occupational health care – Extensive occupational health care through our service provider.
  • Flexible work – Feel free to work from home or the office.
  • Birthday as a holiday – Paid one, of course.
  • Lunch vouchers – Lunch deduction through our service provider.
  • Phone subscription
  • Professional growth – Opportunity to join a growing team of professionals that won’t accept anything less than being world-class.


We acknowledge that finding a person who ticks every box is pretty challenging. That’s why we prefer an “If I don’t know, I’ll figure it out” attitude over having a perfectly matching CV & portfolio. We’ll keep updating this job description to match our current needs.

Note that this is an open application, and we’re not actively hiring just yet. But when we do, it would be very nice to have your open application in our hands. If you still have questions about the position please reach out to
