NOTE: This is an on-site position, not remote. We encourage staff to work from home some days and are a flexible employer, but please do not apply if you are not in Australia or are a business offering dev services!

We're looking to expand our team and are seeking a new lead full stack developer with strong Django, infrastructure or React skills to expand our publishing, programmatic advertising and analytics platform for the ASX small-caps sector.

An ideal candidate is somebody with previous team lead experience, who has deep experience with Django or React: you've built a number of SaaS style products and are strong at mentoring a team through best practices and patterns.

Experience with distributed queues such as Celery, and analytics processing will be very highly regarded, as well as experience with Wagtail CMS (what our publishing sites use).

Our development practices are very mature, the team are technically focussed whilst also very connected with business decisions as the platform shapes other functional parts of our organisation.

You'll be working directly with a technical CTO in a small but competent team. The CTO is currently lead developer, but the desire with this position is that you would become the lead developer.

Expected skills include:

* 3+ years professional experience with Django, Python, PostgreSQL [**]
* 1.5+ years professional experience with React, 3+ with Javascript [**]
* Experienced with distributed task queues, such as Celery
* Using/aggregating API’s and interpreting data is second nature
* Solid understanding across elements of ‘full-stack’ (from infrastructure to front-end) [**]
* You have a strong comprehension of design principles behind building a scalable online platform
* Test driven mindset; strong experience with Python testing frameworks (i.e. pytest) or React testing frameworks (i.e. Jest)
* Strong desire to write clean, maintainable, performant, well documented code
* You know when to be pragmatic, and when to take required time on deeper problems
* Experience with infrastructure + AWS (ECS/Docker experience highly regarded)
* Experience working in an agile environment with a team, using gitflow and pull requests
* Experience mentoring others on best practices & patterns creating SaaS platforms using Django & React
* Experience with Wagtail highly regarded
* Project management experience highly regarded

[**] It's OK if you're stronger in back-end, or infrastructure, than you are in front-end, or vice versa; but comprehension of the full-stack and ability to architect a full-stack platform is critical.

Experience with data science & visualisation is not required but highly regarded.

This position is full time, onsite (not remote) in Melbourne CBD, and you will need to have full working rights in Australia.
