Man, Brisbane is awesome! One of the reasons we love what we do at affix is because we get to meet with damn impressive individuals each and every day. What if I told you there is a business right here in BrisVegas who was founded by a group of legends that previously worked with the likes of Google, Microsoft, and in a very short time have built a startup that is now partnered with a little old company called Facebook!
We first met with one of the Founders catching up over a pint at the Newstead Brewery. During the conversation he casually dropped the fact he’d only just returned from a trip to the US where he visited Facebook HQ and personally had lunch with ‘Zuck’ (Mark Zuckerberg) – No biggie!
Anyways, allow me to digress so I can tell you more about who these guys are! The Who
Founded a little over a year ago, this business is nearing double digits (staff) and have huge ambitions of building a full Software Engineering team in Brisbane. At their core, they are a services business who have a vision of productising many of their services as they grow. They are specialists in exploring modern digital solutions to create elegantly connected, digitally enhanced, and well-communicated workplaces. In short, they are solving problems for companies challenged with communication, collaboration and productivity. The What
Due to the incredibly fast growth of the business who will be opening an office in the US in a couple of months, the current CTO/Co-Founder sees the need to potentially move overseas to help grow other facets of the business. As mentioned earlier, they want to keep the development team local aaaaaand (this is the good part) they want to hire a Lead Developer to step into his shoes and gradually take over the team altogether in the next 12 months! How Cool!! The How
While this is a role with senior responsibilities, this position is not limited to the stereotypical ‘you need 5+ years of commercial industry experience’ mentality.
You should have the following:
- Backend development using Node.JS
- Knowledge of creating and consuming APIs
- Cloud experience – ideally AWS
While this role, at least for the first year is primarily back-end – the following front-end experience would be advantageous:
- React.JS (or similar)
While these bullet-points are important, this is very much a ‘culture-fit first’ business. They currently operate as services business, and they work with some really big industry names! You should be the kind of person who has a real keenness to solve organisational problems and would be comfortable picking up the phone and speaking with C-Level individuals in an extremely fast paced environment.
