Lead Javascript Developer - Spectre Creative

Lead Javascript Developer

Working at Spectre

Our mission is to set the industry standard for designing, developing and enhancing D2C and B2B ecommerce experiences.

The industry is still young and growing, so there are currently no standards on how to build a successful online store. We are open to experimentation, new ideas, and creative freedom to find innovative ways to build high-quality ecommerce experiences. 

All developers are encouraged to explore new tools and frameworks, try out new ideas, and if they work, share their findings with the rest of the team. 

We all work together to set the industry standard for D2C and B2B e-commerce growth, maybe you have the skills, energy and ambition to join us.


We use the most exciting, future-proof tools and technologies in e-commerce. First, we love Shopify and BigCommerce. They are the largest e-commerce platforms in the world and we are excited to work and grow with them. 

We use React, Next.JS, GraphQl, Vercel, Tailwind, and anything else that improves our tech stack. We don’t get bogged down in the same boring tech for months and years, we want to stay up to date and ahead of the curve!

The team

You will be part of a young, diverse, and dynamic team of professionals who are passionate about their work and eager to learn more. 

Remote work is now the norm, and we hope it stays that way. We encourage everyone on the team to come together regularly for innovation meetings, dinners, drinks and parties, as we believe that developing a strong team spirit among all colleagues improves the experience of work. 

We value collaboration and always encourage our teams to work together on projects. You’ll work closely with other developers and designers, learning from them as they learn from you, while we all contribute to helping our clients grow their businesses.
