Software Engineer (PHP / Node.js / React) at Kounta

Chippendale, NSW

Apply to Kounta

Kounta is the go-to platform for hospitality.

We create products for (and by) people who love to produce, sell and share great food and drink, so they can connect better, work faster, and smarter, and keep growing.

Our first product is Point Of Sale, but there is so much more to it than just that…

We are on the lookout for talented Software Engineers to join our high-performing team. We work to deliver new features and functionality in order to stay ahead of the game; delivering our customers exactly what they’re after (before they even know they need it).

We're growing and disrupting quickly as a company, and as part of that growth we have some unique and interesting challenges to solve, both from a technical and business opportunity standpoint. We work with big data and mission critical high concurrency as our customers are always connected and their livelihoods depend on us being online 24 / 7. So we need to ensure the solutions we build are scalable, stable, testable and easily maintainable.

What you'll do

  • We work in small focused agile product squads where every member of the team can contribute ideas and shape features from the early conception right through to delivery. We’re continually developing and improving our tools and processes in order to deliver better product as well as team quality and productivity.
  • You'll work alongside other brilliant engineers to craft robust systems and beautiful interfaces. You'll write clear, performant, testable and elegant code and be a strong advocate for modern development practices. Collaborate with others in technical discussions, code reviews and architecture reviews.
  • You'll have the opportunity to work on different areas of multiple products depending on your skillset and preference. You may get familiar with our flagship Point of Sale and back-office web application, which we are currently splitting out into a microservice architecture built using Node and Golang. We have a game changing roadmap of current and new products and projects in the pipeline with many exciting development opportunities such as working on third party software and hardware integrations, native application development, API development and machine learning applications.
