React Developer | Working on new products | Vibrant digital agency environment


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. They love to solve problems & be collaborative, whilst having a good time! Let me introduce you to the legends at DotDev.  
The who

DotDev is a leading Shopify Plus partner 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.  

The what

We’re looking for a Frontend Developer who is a master of all things React. You will be focusing on the product arm of the business first and foremost, while also touching on eCommerce projects.  It’s not often any two days in here would be the same, you could be building anything from React native apps one day to owning and optimising the user experience to increase the ease of use as well as fit for their end users the next.
You will have the opportunity to identify opportunities and drive new ideas that align not only with the technology but also the business. These guys are looking to draw on the expertise of this person to really drive the UI capability across the product not only from a technology perspective but also ensuring their customers have a seamless experience using the products.
The ability to think on your toes, take initiative and communicate well with the rest of the business is essential.
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.
What’s important from a technical perspective?
So, straight up – this team is high performing and they do have high standards. What we’re really looking for is three fold:

1. A strong foundation in JavaScript and React
2. A strong engineering/problem solving mindset
3. Creativity and high attention to detail
But beyond those, we’re looking for skills and experience in:

  • You will be a mid-weight experienced developer, ideally with a couple of years under your belt as a Frontend Developer
  • Commercial experience in React
  • Expertise in modern front-end web technologies: HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript ES6
  • Ability to write clean, modular and well structured code
  • A sound understanding of DevOps
  • We hire based on attitude first. So, if you’re curious, driven and have your own minimum engineering standards, we’ll probably get on well.
  • We really like autonomous and self-starting engineers. You’ll be expected to rock up to your team mates without asking for permission, plan your own week, ask difficult questions and generally get sh*t done!
  • If you’ve worked in SCRUM squads before – well that’d be snazzy

Absolute bonus points if you have:

  • Used React Native or TypeScript commercially (don’t have it? This is a chance to learn it!)
  • Solid experience integrating front end applications with various API’s
  • Exposure to frontend unit testing
  • Experience working with micro-service architecture

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
  • Learn new technology
  • 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
