Technical Lead | Fullstack Javascript | Leading eCommerce projects


Affix is super pumped to be partnering with a Melbourne success story who are seriously dominating the eCommerce space. Best of all, they are a group of awesome humans who have built an awesome business with an awesome culture. That’s a lot of awesomeness to get your head around. But trust me, awesome doesn’t even begin to give them justice. I reckon by the end of this read and a chat with me, you’ll be digging them just as much as I do. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to DotDev.  
The who

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.
