Fullstack Javascript Developer


Affix is excited to be partnering with an awesome group of humans who are seriously dominating the eCommerce space. These guys think creatively about technology, delivering effective digital solutions of all shapes and sizes. Pumped to show you another great role with the legends at DotDev.  
The who
DotDev is a leading Shopify Plus partner and product development agency in Melbourne. They work with an established list of well-known brands, partnering with the likes of Tony Bianco, Alice McCall, Calibre, Patagonia, Fenton, Diamond Exchange, Viktoria & Woods and more.

They collaborate with these brands to deliver innovative products and solutions with extensive experience building custom themes, apps and integrations to third-party systems.

What’s this bunch like?

One of the first things you feel when you walk amongst the team is you’re immediately welcomed. There are no egos, but rather an overwhelming feeling of inclusion and smiles. They work hard, but they don’t take themselves too seriously. They celebrate the good times and support each other when the challenge for a deadline is on.

These are the exact sentiments that carry on when you hang out with the leaders. They listen and genuinely care on what ideas and thoughts you want to share. The other thing that comes in spades is passion. It oozes everywhere. They love what they do, 100% passionate about and committed to their customers, and most importantly care about their people.  
They’re unique in both who and how they hire – and that’s why we like them! Instead of following the pack by listing every buzzword tech skill in the stratosphere, they prefer to critically analyze where they’re strong and where they’re not. They think together, learn together and as a result; succeed together!

So, what does this actually mean?
It means that, yeah – we’re looking for a Fullstack Javascript Engineer, but more than that; we’re looking for smart, pragmatic people with a thirst for knowledge and a swiss army knife toolkit of problem-solving skills. People who can learn new things quickly, show an interest in solving complex problems with creativity and collaboration. Who can strike the right balance between technical purity and delivering value to customers, but also have a bit of fun along the way too!  

The what
You will be focusing on the product arm of the business first and foremost, while also touching on eCommerce projects.  
You will be responsible for key technical deliverables and to adhere to ‘best practice’ while also being involved in designing enhancements to products for the duration of their lifecycle. This bunch will encourage you to contribute new ideas, think creatively and challenge existing paradigms to ensure they deliver the best products with creative thinking.
You will have the opportunity to identify opportunities and drive new ideas that align not only with the technology but also the business.
Let’s throw a few bullet points in for good measure shall we?

  • You will work closely with other developers to deliver beautiful and clean software and continually improve processes and automation
  • Develop working prototypes in order to demonstrate solution efficacy to other developers
  • Work with other teams members as required for tasks including integration, automation, mapping, analysis and solution design
  • Mentor junior team members

What will you be working on?

  • They use the latest technology and specialise in NodeJS, React, Microservices and Serverless architecture
  • You will be building brand new product features as well as custom apps in the Shopify ecosystem (Node.js with React)
  • Products will include: web applications, mobile apps, API development and rapid prototyping

What’s all the technical bits?
So, straight up – this team is high performing and they do have high standards, but we aren’t 100% limited to being an ‘expert’ in all of the current tech stack. What we’re really looking for really is three fold:

1. A strong foundation in JavaScript (Node.js, Typescript and React.js with Serverless Architecture would be the perfect combo)
2. A strong engineering/problem solving mindset
3. Creativity and high attention to detail
What’s in it for you? 
This is a great opportunity to work with a diverse and talented team to deliver industry-leading projects in the product & eCommerce space. Along with this you will get the following:

  • Competitive salary
  • Flexible work hours
  • Excellent growth opportunities
  • A friendly and supportive work environment
  • Bonus and entitlement policy
  • Allocated study and research days
  • Great location in South Yarra
