We’re looking for a self-starter to work side-by-side with the project’s lead dev to build out the product features of an existing early stage product. Given we are an enterprise startup with our first big customer already onboard, there will be a load of opportunity to create and contribute new features, functionality, and even sub-projects as part of the role. You’ll generally be given standalone features, allowing you to work independently to build it out and integrate into the core code base.
It is a full-time role, based in Sydney Ultimo, with an immediate start date.
Given you will be working with some serious ‘movers and shakers’ there will be loads of opportunities to grow professionally with our fast growing startup.
We’re building an on-demand platform to support corporate innovation teams discover, test and validate, and scale new business ideas like fast-paced startups do. One of the Big Four Banks in Australia has already purchased the platform. You will be joining the team halfway through its build, and once complete we will be taking it to the wider enterprise market.
It’s a complex product that involves a lot of challenges that as a team we’re empowered to solve however we see fit. It’s also an opportunity to work on a well-designed (beautiful in my opinion) product with a lot of features that will eventually be used by 10s of thousands of people.
