Do you want to join an engineering team that has a meaningful impact on the world? Do you want to use your passion for software architecture to build an amazing product? Then we’ve found the right person to be part of our journey.

Even if we don’t currently have any open engineering roles, we are always keen to hear from both software engineers based in Australia.

The role

We’re a startup with a huge amount of blue sky in front of us and it is now down to us to execute. We're looking for highly competent engineers who have a passion for their craft, who are team players, and who are excited to contribute to the growth and culture of the company.

We believe the difference between a good developer and great developer is the ability to code for, and work well within a team, so we highly value empathy and emotional intelligence.

The tech

The technology is current and inherently exciting. In order to kick goals, you will need to be comfortable operating within these technologies and practices:

  • React/Typescript in the frontend

  • Python/Django in the backend (full-stack only)

  • GraphQL for our APIs

  • Automated testing

  • Continuous integration and continuous deployment

  • Heroku and AWS (containers)

Demonstrated Agile experience is important, and we’d love to hear if you’ve worked with Test-Driven Development processes before. Bonus points for frontend devs who know their way around design systems, and for engineers who have worked on API integrations.

What you get to do every day

  • Architect and implement effective and efficient solutions that deliver business outcomes and help create delightful user experiences

  • Deliver high quality, clean and testable code that is a pleasure to inherit and maintain

  • Help others do the same through rigorous code reviews

  • Lead discussions and play a critical role in making architectural decisions and shaping software engineering best practices across the company

  • Contribute to our agile processes and ways of working, including assisting in backlog grooming, estimation, and task breakdown

  • Assist the mentorship of team members in backend and frontend related technologies, and engineering principles in general

  • Help build a kick-ass team and a culture of excellence!

What you will bring to the role

  • Solid professional software development experience, ideally building complex software systems that have been successfully delivered to customers

  • A strong understanding of design principles and patterns, data structures, reliability, maintainability and security

  • A knack for building flexible, modular systems that are still simple and easy to understand

  • Ownership - we love people who see themselves as the agents that can make things happen; owners of their work and their goals.

  • Creative and pragmatic problem solving skills. We love technology, it’s hard not to. But we are here to solve problems, and as a senior engineer you recognise that technology is your toolbelt, creativity your fuel, and business outcomes your objective.

  • A passion for best practices and continuous improvement - we’re looking for people who want to contribute to building a learning environment

  • Social awareness - you’ll work in a team, within a company, and with contacts in client companies, so it’s important that you enjoy working with others.

Don’t stop reading yet

If you’re excited about this role but aren’t sure if you tick all our boxes, please send in your application anyway. We know from research that women and other people from underrepresented, minority, or marginalised backgrounds often only apply if they think they meet all the criteria, but please don’t let that stop you from applying. We’d really love to hear from you and to see what unique skills and experience you’d bring to the role, even if it is not everything we have listed above.


Things you might want to know about us:

  • We offer a warm and collaborative work culture with big time vision. Our aim is to create an environment in which everyone is included in decisions and opportunities, regardless of your role, age, or how long you've been with the company. Everyone's opinion is welcome, and we're firm believers in discussions and radical candor.

  • We trust our people. This means we focus on outcomes and provide a truly flexible workplace. So if you need some time to go to the gym during quiet times, want to break up your day to look after your kids, or feel like going for a walk around that 3pm slump, it’s all fine. We have team members around the globe, so you may need to attend an early morning or early evening meeting occasionally.

  • You will work alongside an experienced team who will challenge you everyday (and expect you to challenge them back).

  • We’re big fans of learning new things, which is why we give you the support and professional development to help you achieve your career goals, learn and grow. We offer time and support to take courses, read books, or attend events, and we have a career development framework in place.

  • We’re a remote-first team, so say goodbye to that commute. Our Melbourne-based team does like to get together occasionally, which we do at our office right in the centre of Melbourne CBD. And it’s fully equipped with an open air garden, arcade machine, ping pong table, and outdoor deck!
