Based in the CBD, we’re looking for a talented senior software engineer who masters new technology quickly and enjoys sharing that knowledge with others, has a strong background in agile and XP development practices, especially TDD, and understands that software development is a team sport.
Ideally, we’re looking for someone who wants to move away from a pure development role and is ready to manage and mentor teams. We expect that the developer/management time split will be 70/30.
Team Management Key responsibilities
- Play a leadership role in the evolution of the company’s Agile ways of working, particularly in relation to development and delivery capabilities
- Develop and mature tools and practices that support the software development lifecycle
- Active participation in scoping and planning work as well as managing the backlog and prioritising work
What kind of attributes are we looking for?
- We want to have intelligent conversations with you on many topics, not just IT.
- Significant commercial development experience, with at least half of that in agile teams.
- At home with modern infrastructure: deep Git, Linux, AWS and Docker experience very desirable. Comfortable with a polyglot ecosystem.
- A high regard for the practice of writing tests & automating all repetitive tasks.
- An interest in data science, machine learning and AI. These will be a big part of our future
What can we offer?
- A company that values learning and wants you to stay at the top of your field.
- A modern stack that you are going to continue to shape and extend
- Genuinely interesting development challenges, with a company that cares about UX, iterative development, and growing its people
- Lots of genuinely interesting challenges in terms of back-end and front-end development, as well as UX design, and lean iterative development.
- A real voice in the development of a product that is interesting & well-researched.
- Work in a business with significant market potential and a commitment to treating its customers and employees with integrity and respect
- Genuine work/life balance. We use technology to keep us working as a team, regardless of where we’re physically located
