Hi there! Thanks for stopping by 👋

Are you actively looking for a new opportunity? Or just checking the market? Well
 you might just be in the right place!

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.

 Our Team

  • 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.

What you’ll be doing:

You'll have the opportunity to work on different areas of multiple products depending on your skillset and preference. We have a game changing roadmap of current and new products and projects in the pipeline with many exciting development opportunities such as 

  • Building new microservices using NodeJs and Typescript while leveraging AWS suite of services
  • Creating microfrontends using React or potentially newer frontend frameworks such as Svelte
  • Work with big data on reporting for our customers while utilising Machine Learning
  • Native application development using React Native
  • API development and integrations with the Lightspeed platform

What you need to bring:

  • Experience as a Software Engineer including both successes and failures (“scars”), which help you make better decisions
  • Knowledge in at least one of the following: NodeJs, Java, GoLang or PHP
  • Experience with either React, Vue, Angular or other javascript frontend framework.
  • Experience with design patterns such as OOD, MVC and SOLID principles
