In addition to hiring for our Melbourne CBD office, we will also consider applications from experienced engineers who would like to work remotely (Australia/New Zealand Wide)

Welcome!

We’re so happy you found us. Since you’ve come this far, it’s safe to say you’re curious about our story and what career opportunities exist, so we’d love to start by introducing ourselves.

Then & Now

Our story starts in 2006 with three founders in a Sydney garage (no, we’re not kidding). Born from a desire to earn a living doing what they loved, with the flexibility to do it from anywhere, Envato set out to create an online community for buying and selling creative digital assets. Nearly 13 years later, we’re profitable and still totally bootstrapped. This allows us to stay super experimental and totally focused on the best interests of our authors & customers around the world.

We’ve built marketplaces where anyone can buy and sell the creative assets they need to complete their projects faster. Our community can now buy millions of different kinds of assets on Envato Market, or subscribe to the #1 unlimited subscription service for creatives, Envato Elements. Every day, these products continue to help everyone from freelancers to small business owners and agencies get their creative projects done.

While we are known and loved within the digital professional community globally, where our authors have earned almost $1,000 million, we also want to be a place where anyone can Make with Envato. Alongside Market & Elements, our portfolio also includes Milkshake, a website builder for Instagrammers, Placeit, a smart template tool for logos, mockups, graphic design & more, Mixkit, for free stock footage and animation, and most recently, Twenty20, a stock-photo subscription service.

With over 600 people globally, we have offices in Guadalajara, Mexico & Los Angeles, alongside our funky Melbourne HQ. We pride ourselves on being super remote friendly, with a staffing population just as diverse as the global community that use our products. To keep this sustainable as we scale, we support people to work from anywhere, whether that’s the beach in Croatia, on the Mornington Peninsula, or from their living room.

All applicants will be considered for all open engineering roles across Envato (Market, Tuts+, Studio, Elements etc.)

We're continuing to grow our team and we're looking for developers who would love the opportunity to work at Australia's premier Ruby development company. We work in small cross functional teams with a variety of skills and experience so, whether you're a passionate Ruby newbie or you've worked at our scale before, we'd love to hear from you.

On a day to day basis you will:

  • Write clean, well thought out and reliable code
  • Participate as a member of a small cross functional team containing members with different skills and experience
  • You'll work on big projects, small maintenance tasks, server management tasks and anything else that makes software our customers love
  • Take lots of responsibility for your work as most teams don't have analysts, testers or system administrators
  • Take part in our 24/7 on-call rotation supporting one of the biggest websites in the world

Essential Requirements

  • Be a nice person who cares about their work
  • Communicate well in person and in writing
  • Be a curious person committed to continual learning
  • Be capable of writing clean, well thought out, and reliable code
  • Be comfortable working on a project from the original fuzzy brief through development and deployment and beyond with minimal oversight required
  • Be comfortable in a Linux software development and deployment environment

Preferred Requirements

  • Have commercial Ruby on Rails experience
  • Have solid TDD/BDD experience
  • Have experience of other high volume/scale web apps
  • Contribute to Open Source projects
  • Past experience in other agile environments
  • Excellent Linux knowledge

What We've Got

A Great Team and Culture

  • Developers are responsible for features from inception through to them being in the hands of customers. The devs talk directly to our community and customers about what they're working on
  • We do continuous delivery properly: any team member can deploy, and we regularly do several deploys a day
  • We publish portions of our code as open source, and contribute back to open source projects we use
  • 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
  • In addition to hiring for our Melbourne CBD office, we will also consider applications from experienced Ruby Developers who would like to work remotely (Australia wide) or within New Zealand. 
  • Future career progression will be available across the entire business - we're big on internal opportunities and professional growth!
