The techy bits
What is the role?
We are looking for a Mid Level Software Engineer with C# .NET and relational database experience. As an individual contributor, you will write high-quality, well-tested, and maintainable code. You will be working alongside 3 other Software Engineers, a Product Manager, a Designer, and a QA Engineer in an agile, multidisciplinary product team.
You will be actively involved in the product iteration process… safe to say that this is a great opportunity for a developer who takes 100% ownership in what they do and likes to contribute their ideas, and have their opinions directly impact the work that they do.
Let’s jump into the specifics! Day to day you will be…
A little bit about you
Ideally you’re going to be full stack – but if you’re a backend .NET developer & have a keen interest in going full stack, we would still love to chat! The first 6 months in this role is going to be backend project work, so you’ll have time to find your feet before getting into UI.
We’re also open to hearing from candidates with diverse experience across object orientated languages – so if you have solid development skills in Java & want to learn the rest, we’d love to hear from you too. Please don’t worry if you don’t tick all the boxes – it’s all about attitude!
OpenCities people and their inclusive culture are at the heart of everything they do. Being product people, they are naturally empathetic, and they take pride in helping governments serve better, and to support their communities. This is an invitation to craft your own career – you will meet people internally who’ve had a crack at all kinds of roles over the years, and have been mentored & encouraged to follow their passions.
This is a remote role, but if you are based in Melbourne there is an office in the CBD that you are welcome to work in as much or as little as you like – people are trusted to flex their own time to suit their lifestyles. Kids, studying, cycling, even theatre… everyone’s commitments are understood, supported and celebrated.
Just a little bit curious?! Let’s have a chat to see if this could be your happy (work) place.
