Due to major growth we are expanding our Engineering team in Perth and currently looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join the team. 

What you should know about our Engineering team:

  • We make room to do things the right way, rather than hacking stuff in
  • You own your projects: you build it, you ship it, you run it
  • We were born in the cloud: practices and principles like CI/CD, IaC, O11y and CyberSec are part of what we do

When it comes to Learning and Development:

  • Learning is part of our fabric. We have a world class Engineering Learning and Development program and we are passionate about career development.

  • We have both a technical and management track for career progression and promotions
  • We have a library of books and videos with good content and encourage staying on top of new practices. 

In terms of our tech stack, we're hosted on AWS containerised in Docker. In the containers, we run our servers with Java / Kotlin connecting to PostgreSQL databases. Our clients use React and Typescript.

What you will bring to the role:

  • Robust coding practices including writing clean well structured code, automated tests, and managing source control.
  • Strive to improve the code base. Deep understanding of why design and architectural decisions are made.
  • Ensuring product features are being delivered effectively as measured by lead time, deployment frequency, change failure percentage, mean time to resolution and number of bugs in production.
  • Experience implementing and using event-driven architectures
  • Cloud development (we are hosted on AWS)
  • Containerisation (Docker and/or Kubernetes would be great)
  • Strong fundamental knowledge of OO and Functional programming paradigms
  • Lead meetings, clearly communicate technical approach, status, assess and mitigate risk
  • A collaborative approach to software engineering
  • Empathy and the willingness to coach and mentor team members
