In this role you will be reporting to the CTO and working in a small but rapidly growing engineering team.
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.

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 back-end and front-end related technologies, and engineering principles in general
Help build a kick-ass team and a culture of excellence!
Who we’re looking for
An owner. We get excited about the things we’re building. We see opportunities, and we’re chomping at the bit to make them happen; we don’t want to wait for someone else to do them. We love people who see themselves as the agents that can make things happen; owners of their work and their goals.
A generalised specialist. Someone who has put in the hard yards and has built a deep understanding of a topic. There won’t be much we can teach you in your area of specialty, however we also seek someone with a range of auxiliary interests and competencies; a generalised specialist.
A pragmatist. We love technology, it’s hard not to. But we are here to solve problems, and as a senior developer you recognise that technology is your toolbelt, creativity your fuel, and business outcomes your objective.
Someone socially aware. We work in a team, within a company. We work with contacts across various client companies. We talk with our clients, and really listen to their feedback. As a senior developer you’re not only technically capable, but you also enjoy working with a team and building a learning environment.
A funlover. We’ll be spending a lot of time together, let’s make sure we have fun!
On the technical side
4+ years of 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
An avid problem solver
A passion for best practices and continuous improvement
Things you might want to know about us:
We offer a small-company work culture with big time vision
Equity package as a senior member of the company
We trust our people. This means we focus on outcomes and provide a flexible workplace
You will work alongside an experienced team who will challenge you everyday (and expect you to challenge them back)
Support and professional development to help you achieve your careers goals, learn and grow
We’re a remote-first team, but when we do spend time in our office, it’s right in the centre of Collingwood. And it’s fully equipped with an open air garden, arcade machine, ping pong table, outdoor deck and a wellness program!
