We’re a fast-growing FinTech startup based in Sydney and we're out to change the way bills are paid, one bill at a time. At Deferit, we've created an easy to use budgeting tool to pay bills on time, breaking them down into 4 flexible instalments with no interest or hidden fees. Our mission is to help people pay their bills, and since launching in February 2018 we have grown exponentially, helping more than 300,000 Australians pay their bills.

We are looking for enthusiastic and accomplished Devops/cloud engineers to join our core team. Our team is driven and we like to have fun while doing what we do best. Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. We are always growing, learning, and adapting both in and out of the office. We're dedicated to agile methodology and big believers in 'lean'. Our team is growing and we’re looking for people that would like to join us on the journey as we scale with our rapidly growing user base. 

Do you enjoy building new features from the ground up? Have a passion for developing awesome products that improve the lives of others? Come and join our energetic and fast moving team where you will have the opportunity to have a meaningful impact not just on our product but the wider Australian community. This is a role that encourages you to try new things, think creatively, and explore a vast range of skills, ideas and areas not found in your ‘traditional’ type of businesses. We’re looking for people that can take what we do to the next level and be involved in product improvements at all scales.

  • A passion for innovation and building systems from the ground up.
  • Excited by fast paced projects and adept at problem solving through ambiguity.
  • Understanding of how to build secured, performant, decoupled, testable and maintainable systems.
  • Understanding of serverless architecture.

And we’ll be especially impressed if you have:
  • Understanding the development processes and practices for cloud-based applications.
  • Experience working with Python.
  • Understanding, knowledge and experience of building and supporting internal systems which are used by the business.

What do you get in return?
Be a part of a rapidly growing company with great options for further development and career growth and to contribute to our next success story.
We are a fun, friendly, tight-knit team, who value ideas over hierarchy and know that everyone’s opinion matters. Being true to one of our values, we have the courage to be different. We dress how we like, which means casual Friday is every day. We also offer flexible and remote working options.
