Full Stack JavaScript Developer


Brisbane is bloody 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 doing damn impressive things. One of these at the top of that list would be a business we’re helping right here in BrisVegas who are founded by a group of legends that have previously worked with the likes of Google, Microsoft, and in a very short time have built a start-up that is a strategic technology partner to a *little known* company called Facebook (now Meta)?
Yes – you’re hearing correctly. There isn’t many times we get to take to a market a start-up that will allow you to pseudo-work with Facebook. And yes, these founders have even had dinner with the ‘Zuck’ himself (we can confirm he isn’t a robot but is in fact a real human).
A bit about the business
Founded a little over a year ago, this company is productizing how Employee Experience (EX) is measured and improved. They have identified a gap in how everyday work communication/collaboration platforms (e.g. Workplace from Facebook/Meta, Slack, Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, Zoom, etc.) capture employee engagement, sentiment and culture data and deliver actionable insights. Their goal is to provide data-driven leaders with one place to measure and drive continuous improvements in everyday digital employee experiences: collaboration, relationships, culture.
What the role will involve
The team are looking for foundational Software Engineers to become part of this company’s incredible journey and success into shaping how Employee Experience is not only created but improved upon for businesses of the future.

The role will see you working directly with the founder CTO where you’ll be working heavily with their backend infrastructure to design and build APIs in Node JavaScript. While the role is heavily backend oriented, if you have a lean towards the frontend instead and love building highly-functional UI in React.JS, the team will be more than happy to provide the bulk of that work instead to you!
The How
While this is a role with mid-level responsibilities, this position is not limited to the stereotypical ‘you need X years of commercial industry experience’ mentality.
Ideally we’re looking for someone with the following:

  • React.JS (or experience with another frontend JavaScript framework)
  • Backend development using Node.JS
  • Knowledge of designing and creating APIs

Bonus points if you have experience with:

  • Cloud experience – ideally Google Cloud Platform
  • Experience mentoring or leading a team of developers
  • Infrastructure as Code (IaC) with Azure Resource Templates, AWS CloudFormation, Terraform

What you’ll get in return:

  • 100% work from home flexibility with a Brisbane WeWork office (if you miss seeing people)
  • As a foundational engineer career progression into what you’re ideally looking to grow into is almost guaranteed with this start-up’s future trajectory
  • Being part of an exciting start-up that is backed and partnered with Facebook 

While these bullet-points are important, this is very much a ‘culture-fit first’ business. You should be the kind of person who has a real keenness to solve organisational problems in a rapid environment and work with a small, cool team of humans.
