Senior Front End Developer | Melbourne

Details (ARCHIVED)

Our client has a huge customer base in the travel industry. They are a constantly expanding team and currently are in need of an experienced software engineer. Great care is taken in nurturing the design process. Engineers live close to the business problem, and play a large part in personally shaping the success of the product, working with both external customers as well as other internal teams within the business.

They are an equal opportunity employer who puts tremendous value on diversity. They do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

The platform is an event-driven, service-oriented architecture hosted in AWS. Everything is written primarily in Ruby, but with sprinklings of NodeJS primarily in the form of AWS Lambda functions. Depending on the project, there's usually a couple of different javascript frameworks in use, including Ember, React, Angular or jQuery. The app you'll be working on is a rich client application written in the latest version of Ember. Its intention is to provide our Customer Support Agents with a simple experience so they can focus on providing great customer service.

You've got plenty of commercial experience with a strong working knowledge of software design patterns and SOLID (or similar) principles to create well designed software - you like to focus more on the 'why' than the 'how'. You're fluent in CSS and HTML, and you see rigorous code testing as an essential part of the dev process. Experience in Ember isn't a must, however you will need to have worked with one of the major JS frameworks in some depth. While your main strength is on the front-end, you're comfortable using Ruby in order to help get the work done. You thrive on team collaboration and always looking to give input - you're not the kind of developer who likes to just sit alone at their desk with their headphones on all day bashing out code. 

  • Highly competitive salary package
  • Convenient Melbourne inner-city location
  • Working in a culture of experimentation, knowledge-sharing and continual improvement
  • Being part of a passionate, supportive and respective cross-functional team that values constant learning
  • Structured career progression
  • Personal training budget
  • Regular hack days
  • Generous travel-related perks (airlines and hotels)
Send an email with your resume, website, Github account, links to apps or anything else you're proud of. At that point I'll tell you more about the role and we can decide if there's a fit. Even if this role isn't quite right for you but you are passionate about all things Javascript, I would still love to hear from you.
