Lead Full Stack Developer l Heavy emphasis on React

Brisbane

Let’s set the scene. This product company backed by an international goliath have just finished R&D into their most exciting project yet – digitalising the service delivered to students by both local and international universities. Reporting to the Head of Engineering (ex-Tech Lead from Canva and Google), you will be surrounded by not only the most brilliant minds in Brisbane, but have the support and backing to move your career into a level that is extremely rare to find.
  
Alright, let’s talk about who they are, what they do, and the problems they’re trying to solve.
   
So these guys are probably a little unknown in the market, but in a very cool way! They’ve got a new & nifty little innovation hub, and it’s got solid financial backing of a global business that’s been doing cool stuff for around ten or more years now. They’re using ‘everyday technology’ like mobile devices and they’re developing software that enables their clients to provide THEIR customers with superior control interface solutions in contrast to those available in the marketplace today. At their core, they’re a Product led business with BIG picture thinkers and some pretty clever
innovators who have the absolute intention to set new trends within the automation industry. 
   
Pretty rad, huh? 
     
Alright, let’s talk about you now 
   
You’re a unique character who has ideally experienced startup life and will vibe with the ‘chaos’
   
At this stage in your career, you’ll get what you’re chasing for in your next move – full autonomy and ownership of the Frontend build of a greenfield product – with the option to also lead the microservices platform in the future. You’ll lead and work with frontend and backend developers to build microservices (FE and BE) for a cloud service IoT platform, while also designing and leading the implementation of a front-end stack across web and native (electron) applications. You can call yourself Picasso, because this is YOUR ‘blank canvas’ to take your expertise to and apply to something truly awesome.
  
With the road being a journey into the unknown, you’ll come with a real architectural mindset and won’t be afraid to research new technologies you’ve literally never touched to make decisions around exactly what the right tool for the job is.
   
If your middle name is “polyglot” and your approach is “pragmatic”, you’re more than likely our perfect human!
  
To knock this out of the park, we reckon you’ll need:

  • Previous experience working in startup land (ideal) with solid experience building from concept to a polished product!

FE

  • Experience building a frontend project from start to finish
  • 3+ years’ commercial experience with React
  • Frontend testing harnesses
  • Component libraries experience (Storybook, bit.dev, etc)

BE

  • 2+ years’ experience building web services (ideally with JavaScript/TypeScript BE)
  • Experience with microservices, REST APIs, and web technologies

It would be helpful or ‘nice’ if you had experience with:

FE

  • Architecting a frontend stack
  • Angular
  • Selenium

BE

  • Scaling issues
  • Infrastructure or DevOps (e.g. Deployment)
  • Architecting a cloud-based system

There’s plenty of bonus points available if you have:

  • Working with Nodeflows
  • Experience with A/V or IoT

The exciting things to expect from this role   

  • Have full ownership and lead the development of the Backend
  • Grow a team underneath you
  • Work directly with a Senior ex-Googler (She is such a rad human – trust me this is probably the biggest selling point of them all!)
  • Successfully architect a first of its kind product into market that will be used globally!
