Technical Lead / CTO | Melbourne
Details (ARCHIVED)About Us:
We are a dynamic, diverse and highly engaged team involved with a leading online health company solving real-world problems. We're a growing team looking for a Senior Lead Developer to help guide the technical direction, with a view to becoming a CTO role. You'll work with us in a supportive team environment who follow Agile-based workflows.
We are an equal opportunity employer who values diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
About The Role:
Our backend is built with Ruby on Rails, deployed using AWS with a deeply tested codebase, so ideally you'll have plenty of familiarity with Rspec, as well as PostgreSQL and Buildkite. The frontend stack is primarily a Cordova/React/ES6 app. Experience with GraphQL, FlowType, Tokbox for WebRTC, DC/OS, Marathon, and some security knowledge will also be highly regarded. As well as working on the codebase and helping with the dev process from conception to deployment, you'll also play a strong part with the technical direction of the company, as well as help build out the team as our company grows.
You've been at a Senior-level position for a while now and are looking at taking a step up. You want to lead a team, with a view to eventually becoming a CTO. You're not the kind of dev who likes sit quietly at their desk all day with their headphones on; you're collaborative and flourish with interaction with your team. You're passionate about the tech you use, have very strong Ruby skills, are excited about helping guide the technical direction and are always wanting to know all about Latest Cool New Thing™.
Not only do you have understanding of the technologies you use, but you also understand the reasoning for using them, and you aren't afraid to recommend new and better ways of getting things done.
- An attractive salary that reflects your skills and experience
- Flexible working environment (work from home 2 days a week)
- Working for a team that truly values a positive Work/Life balance
- Be part of a diverse and inclusive collaborative team
- Lead role with a view to becoming CTO
