With over 100 staff around the world, our Wollongong office is our largest and home to all of our product design, development, QA, security and systems team members. 

Our teams are self-organising, and highly autonomous. We adhere to Agile principles and collaborate with the product and design teams as much as possible. This approach requires a huge amount of teamwork and maturity that may not be right for everyone, but we believe it’s the best way to create great software.

Continuous Delivery is deeply embedded within the way that we work. However, we know that typing is not the main bottleneck so we are constantly looking to improve all we do.

  • An eye for detail and software design
  • An understanding of the importance of how tech and product are tightly coupled, and the ability to provide input on both
  • Experience building sustainable architecture and performance optimisation
  • The ability to speak eloquently on a range of topics based on experience, reading and experimentation.
Bonus points

  • Experience with the technologies we use, including but not limited to:
    • Perl, Python, Node.js
    • JavaScript (AngularJS, React)
    • AWS (Lambda, Aurora, S3, DynamoDB, API Gateway, Containers) 
    • MySQL 
    • MongoDB
    • Elasticsearch
    • Redis
    • Groovy + Selenium + Katalon Studio
    • Git, Bitbucket
    • Jira, Slack
  • Experience interfacing with complex back-end systems, queues and parallel, scalable architectures
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Technology or an Engineering discipline (though relevant experience without a degree will be valued highly).

What we're offering

  • Competitive salary
  • Centrally located office with great access via public transport, amazing view and fun office culture
  • Flexible working hours and conditions (beanbags, lounges & stand-up desks!)
  • Many office perks, including self serve espresso and drip coffee, a fully stocked kitchen, catered Friday lunches, and a few office dogs who love to drop in for regular visits
  • We regularly attend conferences and community events, both as participants and as contributors
  • We’re a big part of the “Siligong” community and proud of it
