At Spaceship, we’re on a mission to enable people to invest in their future, so they can live the life they want to live. We started in 2017 with Spaceship Super (spaceship.com.au) , and in 2018 we launched Spaceship Voyager (spaceshipinvest.com.au) , which aims to make investing in a diversified portfolio simple, transparent and accessible. 

Since launch, we have grown to more than 55,000 financial members and nearly $300 million in funds under management — but we’re just getting started.

What will you be doing?

As a Software Engineer at Spaceship, you will work in a cohesive team environment where each engineer influences the technical and architectural direction. Our stack is modern - React / React Native in the frontend; Go in the backend - all running in a containerised microservice architecture.

Working on the backend, you will:

* Have an impact on the technical direction of the system
* Shape what the future of investment looks like as code
* Solve problems in an interesting and unique domain, that previously existed only in spreadsheets
* Work on an extremely modern stack comprised of the newest technologies, no .NET or PHP in sight
* Gain exposure to the inner workings of finance

What are we looking for?

Our preference is to hire a mid-senior engineer with experience in the technologies we are using, but at the same time, we know the best people learn quickly. So if you’re an awesome engineer with a different profile - we are still interested.

That being said, our ideal wishlist is:

* 3+ years experience as a backend software engineer
* Proficiency in Golang, SQL, Microservices

What are the perks and benefits?

* Competitive salary + equity options
* Monthly health and wellness reimbursement
* Emphasis on a healthy work/life balance
* Height adjustable workstations
* Kitchen stocked with food and drink
* Office located in the heart of Sydney’s CBD

Who are we?

We are ~30 people passionate about helping people invest in their future.

We value forward-thinking, accessibility, curiosity, transparency and simplicity in everything we do - from the way we collaborate to the products we create.

Spaceship has raised more than $40m to date from some of the world’s most renowned venture capitalists, including Horizons Ventures, AirTree Ventures, Sequoia Capital, and New Enterprise Associates.
