    We are working with some of Australia’s most forward-thinking brands across Retail, Peer2Peer Marketplaces, Finance & Insurance and Travel (Kogan, Graysonline, Car Next Door, Adore Beauty to name-drop a few) and quickly expanding into international markets, with established clients in the US, Europe and Latin America.Founded by an Ex-Googler, backed by two international patents, well-known shareholders and a Jobs4NSW partnership, we are a rapidly expanding team of 20 from a diverse range of backgrounds and are moving into brand-new offices next month.

    Your Opportunity:
    You will be developing and integrating Longtail UX landing page templates into some of the most trafficked websites in the world – and see your own designs appear in the top ranked positions in Google.

    You will have the opportunity to further hone your skills using:

    • HTML/HTML5
    • CSS/CSS3
    • Javascript (JQuery)
    • PHP (Laravel)
    • MySQL
    • React.js

    Plus, our Senior Front-End Developer will shortly be taking some Parental Leave so we are looking for someone confident enough to step up and lead the team too.

    Your Challenge:
    We are looking for an “ideas person”. You will be working on client projects creating custom webpage templates for clients on a wide range of frameworks. Some of the client javascript framework code has to be translated into plain javascript.

    You will take ownership for a broad and varied range of tasks, working closely with our experienced Senior Front End Developer, Back End Developers and Systems Architect.

    This Role is Perfect for you if:
    You have 4+ years Web Development Experience and the drive to continuously learn and further hone your skills. Our technology is new and unique, we work with clients across a broad range of industries and frameworks and therefore the opportunity to learn is guaranteed.

    • Technical Experience:
      • Converting design to HTML, CSS and JavaScript/jQuery
      • CSS frameworks (ideally Bootstrap and/or Foundation)
      • React.js, Vue.js or equivalent
      • PHP and PHP frameworks (specifically Laravel)

    • Motivated, with the ability to meet deadlines

    • MySQL, XML and JSON data
    • Database Management
    • JIRA (or equivalent)
    • Knowledge of on-page SEO best-practices

    We value our people, and work hard to make sure that every day in the office is a good one. Yes, we have table tennis. Yes, we have Foosball, there’s also Friday Team Trivia. But more importantly, we encourage idea sharing, support personal development, celebrate achievements and appreciate there is life outside of work – and we are growing quickly, so there is ample opportunity for personal career growth too.
