Frontastic

Frontend API as a service
🏙 20 locations
🌎 9 countries
🤓 11-50 members
We decided to start Frontastic as a remote native company.

There are three main reasons for this:

1. We’ve personally had very good experience with remote work.
2. We make a product that inspires not only customers, but also ourselves and all other employees. This is the ideal basis for a remote company.
3. We believe in diversity; we believe that we need the best people and that we can’t find them in a single country.

In addition, remote work is very ecological because we don’t contribute to jamming the streets every morning and polluting the air with emissions.

Engineering culture

👋 Daily standups
35 remote teams

Our daily standup meeting is just a bot inside Slack. It asks us every morning about our plans, so that our colleagues have the chance to know. In the evening it asks us about results and our mood.

🤝 Pair programming
20 remote teams

We often get together spontaneously on a Google Hangouts call. Among other things, it's a good opportunity for pair programming.

⚡️ Agile development
35 remote teams

We are not dogmatic about the way we work. We use the methods that seem most appropriate for each situation. When we realize that we need more structures, we create structures. Not before 😉

Remote workplace

✈️ Company retreats
106 remote teams

Twice a year we meet for three days for a company retreat

📹 Video meetings
9 remote teams

In preparation for each weekly meeting (which we organize as a video meeting), everyone briefly tells the Slackbot what they want to share with their colleagues. In this way we’re wonderfully asynchronous; if you’re on vacation, for example, you can easily pick up the most important things you’ve missed in the meantime.

☕️ Video coworking
1 remote teams

Sometimes it’s just nice to work together with others in the same room. We often get together spontaneously. To do this, we simply use Google Hangouts, for all those who have the inclination and time to work together. If you want to have your peace of mind or take a call, just go out again – quite uncomplicated.

✈️ Meeting in person
3 remote teams

Currently we meet every four weeks in person. This works because we don’t live too far apart.

It’s also a great way to learn about new topics or just pair programming. And, of course, it also stimulates a sense of being together.

We try to be as asynchronous as possible. Therefore we don't aspect you to answer even direct mentions immediately.
