Surry Hills, NSW

Apply to Simply Wall St

Simply Wall St is looking for Full Stack Developers to help us build a revolutionary product which transforms the way everyday people around the world invest, through empowering them to understand complicated financial data and make better, non-emotional decisions.

We are building a world-class product innovative in many ways – unique data visualizations, making complex and complicated things simple and replacing work previously done by humans. We are solving a very interesting problem in a very underserved space; the average retail investor massively underperforms the market but they really wouldn't have to.

This is an opportunity to work at a well-funded, fast-growing Fintech startup with a global impact that is still in its early stage. We have more than tripled the number of users during the last 6 months to over 450,000 but the team is still very small and you will have a big impact on how our product works and feels.

Projects you will be working on include

  • Running and implementing product/growth experiments and SEO A/B tests across the whole platform;
  • Automation of content production at a very large scale in various forms;
  • Working with (not only financial) data at large scale;
  • Building various mini-projects; microsites and tools to help our growth efforts;
  • Accessing unstructured data and turning it into structured data usable by our systems;
  • Bots and NLG (natural language generation);
  • Wiring together solutions to prove they work, add measurable value, and is worth investing in further.

About you

You'll need to have a diverse range of personal projects to even be considered for this role, as you'll be getting involved with everything from feature/ conversion experiments to chat bots.

  • You are comfortable working with product teams to help them bring ideas to life as efficiently as possible;
  • You understand that sometimes an imperfect solution is the right one that will allow us to learn and get to the next stage quickly;
  • You have an interest in the growth funnel of SaaS businesses and want to create new approaches to automate it;
  • You're naturally inquisitive about how websites, apps and platforms have been built;
  • You can look at any site and come up with a way to scrape it;
  • You love building and launching side projects;
  • You keep up and tinker with the latest web technologies ;
  • You've taken ideas all the way to published/launched MVPs before;
  • You automate everything you can, you automate the automations;
  • You approach unknown problems as an opportunity to learn;
  • You validate assumptions before implementing them;
  • You code to get things done but do it without your creations becoming spaghetti;
  • Your google-fu is impeccable and your exception handler is \`${e.message}\`;
  • Believe that software is eating the world!

Before you apply

You must have an extensive collection of personal or commercial projects that showcase your abilities. We do not consider university projects as being part of a portfolio and will disregard them. University degrees are not necessary, we love self-taught developers.

Take some time to explore our product, if you get invited to an interview we expect you to know it inside out. We love constructive criticism and are always open to unique perspectives or being impressed by new ideas.

Technically we are looking for

  • Strong transferable knowledge in multiple programming languages;
  • Excellent javascript and node.js knowledge;

  • Built advanced scraping systems before;
  • Designed and implemented ETL data processing pipelines;
  • Familiarity between many SQL variants (MSSQL, MySQL, Postgresql, SQLite);
  • Understanding or interest in basic NLG (Natural Language Generation) constructs;
