Senior Backend Node.JS Developer


Man, Brisbane is 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. What if I told you there is a business right here in BrisVegas who was founded by a group of legends that previously worked with the likes of Google, Microsoft, and in a very short time have built a business that is very closely partnered with a little old company called…. Facebook!
We first met with one of the Founders catching up over a pint last year at the Newstead Brewery.  During the conversation he casually dropped the fact he’d only just returned from a trip to the US where he visited Facebook HQ and personally had lunch with ‘Zuck’ (Mark Zuckerberg) – No biggie!
Anyways, allow me to digress so I can tell you more about who these guys are!
The Who
Founded a little over two years ago, this business has grown to double digits and are moving into a bigger office in July! They have huge ambitions of building a full Software Engineering team in Brisbane. At their core, they are a services business who have a vision of productising many of their services as they grow.  They are specialists in exploring modern digital solutions to create elegantly connected, digitally enhanced, and well-communicated workplaces. In short, they are solving problems for companies challenged with communication, collaboration and productivity.
The What
These guys are officially a #scaleup – They have customers (LOTS OF THEM) and they have very recently expanded to the US!

As mentioned earlier, they want to keep the development team local. You’ll be joining a team of legends to develop custom integrations and services for their enterprise clients. These integrations can range from playful services like footy tipping chat bots or more critical services such as a security audit management platform. The role is primarily backend focused and aims to improve and seamlessly integrate with their customers’ platforms. As a Facebook partner, the platform you’ll be working on top of gives you the benefit of working with modern technologies and APIs. Pretty rad, eh?!
The How
This position is likely suited to a Senior Developer, but is not limited to the stereotypical ‘you need 5+ years of commercial industry experience’ mentality.
You should have the following:

  • Backend development using Node.JS
  • Solid experience with RESTful APIs and other API styles (GraphQL, XML, etc)
  • Cloud experience – ideally AWS
  • Containers (Kubernetes, Docker)
  • Understanding of Git
  • Prior Experience with CI/CD and testing frameworks

While this role, at least for the first year is primarily back-end – the following front-end experience would be advantageous:

  • HTML/CSS/JavaScript
  • Understanding of 3rd party integrations though webhooks, OAuth and access tokens.
  • React and the broader React ecosystem

While these bullet-points are important, this is very much a ‘culture-fit first’ business. They currently operate as services business, and they work with some really big industry names! You should be the kind of person who has a real keenness to solve organisational problems and would be comfortable picking up the phone and speaking with C-Level individuals in an extremely fast paced environment.
