We're looking for a senior back-end developer to help us build Australia’s first high-tech alternative to the Big Four Banks.
We’re building a digital hybrid account that sits alongside the startup banks of Europe and America (simple.com, next.n26.com, revolut.com) – designed to completely change the way you interact with your money.
About the role:
We're looking for passionate, creative people to help us invent the future of banks for this generation and the next. We're a team of seven at the moment, and we expect to add a couple more this year. As a very early member of the team, you'll own all aspects of back-end development, including architecture, language decisions, tools, server-side smarts,.and communications between our systems and our partners, such as other banks.
You’ll be joining two other developers, one of the co-founders and a iOS specialist. They’ll be responsible for their areas, just as you are for yours, but you’ll need to work well with them.
Current back-end systems are built in Ruby, but they’re modular enough to be replaced piece by piece with systems written in another language if that’s the right decision.
Four years or forty years experience isn't important to us, but attention to detail, taking pride in your work, and understanding how your work fits into the bigger picture are. You’d also be someone who can easily balance the ability to solve micro (immediate problems), whilst thinking of scaleable solutions for future expansion. In general we like people who are opinionated, self-motivated, care about ethics and sustainability, have broad interests and can take ownership of projects.
This is not a 9-to-5 codemonkey kind of job. It's also not a Silicon Valley startup gig that comes with a foosball table. It's a chance to create your own job, learn a ton of stuff along the way and help us craft a progressive workplace culture.
We'd love to hear from you if:
- you’re excited by the mission
- are comfortable making decisions that will have a big effect on the company’s success
- have held a senior role in a startup before
If this interests you, reach out. We'll get in touch to arrange a catchup. We like to work on paid mini-projects with potential hires so that both parties can see if there's a fit. The aim is a full-time role with equity in the company.
We heart diversity:
We have a strong focus on creating a company and culture that embraces diversity. We encourage people of all backgrounds to apply.
