About Business Unit Alpha

In BU Alpha, we build solutions based on KENTICO XPERIENCE and KENTICO KONTENT.

We are one of the leading partners in Europe and have the clear goal of becoming #1 in the world. Our team has achieved the highest levels of certifications in all Kentico products and has even won the global Site of the Year award. 
We stay humble and work hard towards our goal. We never give up and always remember that we are a team. 

What is the Front-End function about?

In Actum, the Front-End team provides the competence of front-end development to project teams and the support team. As a secondary goal, the team supports pre-sales efforts and building of visibility and network in general.

What stack do we use?

Our stack keeps improving. At the moment, the BU Alpha typically relies on the following:

  • CSS (including preprocessors: SCSS, Less; Styled Components; BEM; Bootstrap; responsive design; mobile-first)  
  • HTML (and templating languages: Nunjucks, Handlebars)  
  • JS (es5, es6, jQuery, React [Redux, Hooks], TypeScript, Flow, Jest)  
  • Bundlers/task runners (Grunt, Gulp, Webpack, NPM scripts)  
  • REST API  
  • Git (TFS)  
  • JIRA 

Our projects leverage Kentico technologies (Kentico Xperience MVC, Kentico Kontent)

What is a successful FE Team Lead like?

Nobody is perfect. Still, the perfect FE Team Lead for BU Alpha would be:

  • Resilient and driven to deliver. Showing emotional stability and acting decisively under stress and uncertainty. Able to lead the team in difficult times and keeping strategic focus even in chaotic situations.
  • True Leader. Showing integrity, empathy, consistency, and hope. A leader who creates a group of loyal followers. A leader who understands his or her team and individual team members as whole human beings. A person of uncompromised moral standards and consistent words and actions.
  • Strategic. Thinking beyond the needs of the next week. Leading the team towards a vision through a set of connected strategic steps.
  • Knowledgeable. Knows the everyday job of a front-end developer and, in most cases, is able to jump in and start coding.
  • Networked. A person who naturally establishes connections outside of the company and is ready to reach out for or provide external help whenever there is a need.
  • Pragmatically innovative. Combining curiosity, strategic thinking and business sense, the team lead tries and evaluates new approaches. He or she sensitively adopts only those that are contributing to the strategic vision. A good leader says “no” very frequently and for good reasons.

Our Team Leader never says:

  • “We will figure this out on our own, no matter what.”
  • “I don’t care; it’s their problem.”
  • “I don’t care what you feel; there is a deadline.”
  • “I don’t care about the deadline.”
