Software Engineers | Go, JavaScript, TypeScript, Ruby or PHP


It’s no secret by now that our very good friends at 99designs are continuing to scale – and rapidly. It’s energising to be around, one of Melbourne’s (now global) absolute darlin’ product success stories going from strength to strength. It’s a great time to join the business: there are lots of complex challenges to go at here and continually emerging growth opportunities. We’re on the lookout for software engineers to support this growth and make their mark in the next chapter. 

Who are they?
99designs is a real success story and a highly thought of workplace for good reason.  They’re a global creative platform that makes it easy for designers and clients to work together to make designs they love.  

What makes them so great? 
Well, there’s a lot of reasons! Their people, their collaboration, their motivation and desire to help designers work across borders with greater flexibility and freedom, allowing people to create their own success, and their pursuit of customer excellence; that every customer and creative is delighted by the 99designs experience. 

They’ve now entered another exciting period of growth, and to support them in this, we’re on the lookout for passionate, collaborative and creative developers who have experience in any one of the following tech: PHP, Golang, Typescript, JavaScript or Ruby and who are eager to be a part of a team who have the perfect balance of hard work and fun. 

What is the role all about? 
This is a full stack software engineering role, across the following tech: PHP, Golang, Typescript, JavaScript or Ruby. It’s a big stack – so experience in just one, and the drive to learn the rest will work beautifully! Your role in their agile product team is to deliver highly available, high quality, trustworthy and reliable software that makes their users happy. 

The techy bits
The 99designs platform consists of a fleet of microservices written in Go, Ruby and PHP with a GraphQL backend-for-frontend aggregation layer and a Typescript/React frontend. 

Every team is full stack and looks after an end-to-end, vertical slice of the 99designs product. This means that you own part of the front-end, back-end, storage, and operations –  the goal is for teams to be in control of delivering a great end-user experience. 

A little bit about you

They have a culture of workplace flexibility and wellness, support for working parents, and support for the community – including tech groups, non-profits and dedicated open source projects.
