What You’re In Charge?

Our front-end team is looking for the next ranger to create the best storytelling experience on the planet. You should welcome the prospect of crafting JavaScript codes from scratch, put performance and care about putting the best code forward and do these as part of a squad, not a lone ranger. Front end is part of a product team that consists of UIUX, Product Managers, Backend developers, QA and Dev Ops. It has always been a challenge and satisfaction to see a UI design get implemented in code!

Piktochart has an open environment through weekly sharings that encourages participations and suggestions to improve the platform. For example, in the past, we have adopted frameworks such as Cycle.js or adopted the philosophy of reactive programming from procedural thanks to these group huddles! While we do our best to adhere to standard principles like Git for code managements, Scrum for project updates and code reviews to help validate one another’s works, we also go for “best practice” and not common practices in other areas. In short, we are not just looking for code that works, but we want it to be easily maintainable in the long term and we define this by:

  • Code that is easily understood by the team.
  • Less prone to bugs when there are changes.
  • Easily extendable.

Some interesting projects that we are undertaking now includes a design system that has reusable components in the UI to accelerate a lot of the development in house. If all these sound like a challenge to you and the HOPEFUL values resound with you, please read on!

What We’re Searching?

  • 3+ years experience in JavaScript or front end development for application.
  • Expertise in JavaScript fundamentals and libraries , HTML5, CSS3, and other web languages & technologies.
  • Familiar with the Backend environment and how to integrate the server data into the web application.

  • Have experience writing Javascript in Functional and Reactive Programming Concept, with libraries like RxJS, CycleJS,, ReactJS, Redux, and other similar libraries.
  • Care about testing - write automated test coverage to ensure the written application is stable and works among browsers.
  • Someone who picks things up quickly, contributes to everyone's learning and want to grow with the company.

“No more Monday Blues.”

Written down on a piece of a paper back in 2011, little did Ai Ching Goh and Andrea Zaggia know that those four words would mark the beginning of an incredibly exciting and rewarding journey.

In fact, all they knew was that they wanted to work in a place where two things mattered: people and communication.

Having both quit their jobs, Ai Ching and Andrea found Yet Another Studio, a graphic design agency based in Penang, an exotic Malaysian island known for its rich variety of food and incredible heritage sites.

But the initial idea of helping a select few clients communicate with greater (visual) impact soon paves way for a bigger mission: to put visual prowess in everyone’s hands.

And so four people get down to business, working day and night out of a small Penang-based warehouse to make it happen. Before too long, our first do-it-yourself infographics maker is born. And so is Piktochart.

Fast-forward to today and that four-person team has blossomed into a wonderful bunch of curious people who passionately work toward that same mission. To keep evolving and bringing even greater tools to the more than 10 million people who use Piktochart to tell amazing visual stories, in whatever format and shape they may take.

And to cut it short, that’s pretty much how we got to where we are today. (And frankly, we can’t wait for whatever comes next).

Now, let us take you on a little journey. You know, if you want to.
