Technical Lead


Karista plays a crucial role in connecting carers and consumers with disability and home care service providers, allowing them to make the right choice based on individual needs. Founded in 2016, Karista has provided a space for people to share experiences and compare costs. Karista has assisted over 10,000 Australian families to navigate the often stressful experience that is selecting health care providers for loved ones.

With experience behind them, this well-established company is ready to scale up and they are looking for a passionate Tech Lead to join the management team  

Why Join Now?

In a relatively short space of time, Karista has built an offering that has made a real difference and it’s now time to take it to the next level. To date, the platform has been developed by a 3rd party and in order to realise its full potential, Karista has made the decision to bring development in-house. That’s where you come in.    

Karista is a purpose-led organisation, driven by helping those in need get better health outcomes. It’s a difficult assignment but one that the entire team is committed to. They’ve made an excellent start and there’s an enormous opportunity to do more. It’s exciting!

What’s the gig? 

This is no ordinary Tech Lead position. This is an opportunity to play a hands-on role while providing the Founder and Leadership team with the right technology advice that will not only improve the product, it will improve the lives of those it helps. 

The emphasis of this role will be to prioritise how the product can evolve in conjunction with the product road map. Like most startups, there is a lot to do and we don’t expect to be done at once. This is a role well suited to someone who likes to get involved in a broad remit, prioritise where the greatest impact is with the view of building a team around them.

A bit about you:

First and foremost, we’re seeking someone who is aligned with Karista’s values and can get behind its purpose. Together with that, we’re seeking someone with a background that includes:

  • Experience in a leadership role (or you’re ready to take the step) where you were involved in not only the technology decisions but provided input and supported the product road map
  • Hands-on experience with some or all of the tech stack is React, Django, Python & AWS.
  • Experience and/or passion supporting UX design improvements
  • Experience and/or a passion for being in a startup environment that is forever changing 
  • A passion for evaluating new ways of doing things and testing new ideas
