- Based in the Melbourne CBD at Envato’s Global Head Office
- Only open to people who identify as women.
Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, we're a completely online company with an ecosystem of sites and services to help people get creative. In September 2014, one of our sites, ThemeForest, was the 90th most visited website in the world and it remains among the most visited Australian-owned website on the planet! With more than 350 staff and contractors worldwide, we've helped a community of creative sellers earn more than $500 Million.
JobAdvisor awarded us the title of Australia's Coolest Company for Women and Diversity (2015 and 2016). We were also named as one of the Best Places to Work in Australia in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 BRW Awards.
On Envato Market thousands of people earn a living selling things like WordPress themes, photos, music tracks and illustrations. With Envato Elements, we oversee one of the world’s largest subscription services for digital creatives, providing hundreds of thousands of files for unlimited download for one flat fee. We offer website design and hosting with Envato Sites. On our education platform Tuts+, over 5 million people learn skills including code, illustration, photography, web design, and more, each month. We also run a freelance marketplace called Envato Studio.
You might be surprised to know that not only do we run some of the biggest websites in the world; we’re also growing really fast!
What you’ll be doing
You and another Apprentice will join the Envato Engineering team in full-time, permanent roles and will be mentored and coached by a dedicated mentor, in our immersive and collaborative environment, until you’re ready to be promoted to the role of Junior Developer in about 6 to 12 months time. The time until promotion will be based on your individual development.
As an Apprentice Developer, you will build world class development skills through supported immersion in Envato delivery teams! That’s right.. you will be doing real work. You will build, deploy and support software solutions for Envato with the support of your very own Developer Mentor and the wider team. This includes taking part in the entire software development process, from planning and estimation through to delivery of well-tested, high-quality code that you will support in a production environment, and you’ll also work across the full stack!
What we’re looking for
If you love learning, have a passion for software development and really love what Envato’s values are all about (and align with these) then we want to hear from you! You should be able to write basic code and solve basic problems using code. You may have learnt this at uni, through self-directed learning, at a dev bootcamp, and/or by completing work experience in an engineering team. A university degree is not essential.
The main thing is that you’re at the start of your professional software engineering career, have very basic engineering knowhow, and are ready to join a supportive team who can help you take yourself to the next level. This means that even if you’ve never had a professional job before, or you’re changing your career direction, we’d love to hear from you.
We’re kinda like a big, super collaborative family here at Envato, so as part of this role you will need to be able to communicate effectively with people from diverse roles and backgrounds. You’ll get to display your ability to do this in our interview process. If you’re hired as an Apprentice, we understand you might be a bit shy on your first day, so your Mentor will help you to build confidence to talk to people at various levels across our whole business.
What we offer
- A fantastic culture of creatively minded, hard working people who are passionate about Envato and being part of its growth and success
- Flexible working conditions – we want you to love your work but also your life outside of Envato
- We actively work on creating a safe, inclusive environment free from discrimination
- A fast paced and progressive environment where everyone has regular interaction with teammates and Envato community members from all over the world!
