Do you like to develop new architecture? Can you create a technical roadmap and manage a team to implement it? And would you like to work at a successful e-commerce platform in Haarlem? We have a great opportunity for you! At Vision Healthcare, we are looking for a Lead Front-end Developer to join our team.
In this role, as a Lead Front-end Developer, you will work in a unique working environment where you take on many responsibilities. You contribute greatly to the online visibility of Vision Healthcare and together with your colleagues you take the e-commerce platform to the next level. You’ll work with the latest techniques and get the chance to put your own ideas into practice. You are 100% in control when it comes to development projects and you know what it takes to support a growing team of developers. Not only do you understand exactly what your teammates need, you also know how to inspire them (to come up with new ideas) and support them with their tasks.
As a Lead Front-end Developer, you determine the architecture and technical roadmap of our platform. With this set-up we sell a wide range of nutritional supplements in Europe. It’s a headless architecture with a Next.js frontend, a GraphQL CMS and a REST API backend. Thanks to your work everything runs smoothly: you lead the team so they know exactly what can be worked on and where improvements are needed. In addition, you regularly meet with the lead e-commerce developer and the Backend-team to discuss the total architecture.
This is a versatile job: we support more and more webshops and companies with our products, we’re working on a shift to a (partly) new stack and we’re making challenging new plans for the future. As a Lead Front-end Developer you will support all these projects. Your vision on technology is focused on the long-term and in order to succeed you see and identify opportunities and improvements.
In your role as a Lead Front-end Developer it is important that you are socially skilled, eager to find the right solutions to anything, a pioneer in development and a pro in managing and inspiring a team. A professional who approaches every problem as a challenge he likes to take on and who knows how to achieve further success with a structured mindset. You also have:
- knowledge at an academic level
- experience with Git, Docker, Kubernetes, Azure DevOps and Cloud-technology
- experience with developing CI/CD pipelines
- knowledge of API’s
- proven experience in building high quality web applications
- good communication skills in English and preferably also Dutch.
Besides that, you are available at least 32 hours a week. Do you have experience with Bootstrap, Redux, GraphQL and React Query? That’s a big plus!

It all started back in 2005: Vision Healthcare was founded at a small kitchen table in Haarlem, with - at the time - only two products and two employees. Our initial ideas have grown rapidly since that day into a mature, ambitious, international company with different large self-care brands and OTC (Over The Counter) products. And the kitchen table soon became too small…
So nowadays we have different offices in Europe. One of our Dutch offices is located in Haarlem, where various labels are managed. For example: Flinndal, Cute Nutrition, Vitamine op Recept, Purasana and Mylène. 80 people work here in Haarlem and they all have a big passion for a healthy lifestyle. Together we work on e-commerce activities, the launch of new brands and the development of products with better quality and that are simple and user friendly.
