Stockspot is Australia's largest online investment adviser (or robo adviser)

We’re on a mission to make smarter money management accessible for everyone. In 5 years we’ve grown to manage hundreds of millions of dollars for thousands of Australians.

This role is a career-shaping opportunity for the right person to:

Own the front end of our web product and native app and drive tech decisions
Use the latest technologies including React and React Native
Work with a team of likeminded engineers and mentor our junior front end team
Ship to our customers fast with Continuous Integration / Deployment
Build your personal profile in the front-end community
Become a shareholder in a high growth fintech business


In the role you will not only be working with the engineering team but be working closely with all other parts of the business including Client Care, Operations, Marketing, and Product to create and maintain features and tools as the business continues to grow. This is very different to big organisations where you work on a single project/product within a silo.

Our engineering team strives to deliver the best code and the best user experience. You will partner closely with our engineers and the rest of the team to create amazing cutting edge mobile and web experiences for our clients.

If you are highly motivated and want to work with creative people who have the same passion and you have current experience in (React Native, ReactJS, Node, Flux/Redux, ES6, Webpack, SASS, CSS3, HTML5, and Vanilla Javascript) then this is a great opportunity to work in a fast-growing fintech business, develop your own career and as our company grows.

In this role you’ll have the opportunity to:

Collaborate with a brilliant engineering team in an agile environment, using modern tools and techniques to create engaging and powerful solutions for our clients, all with a great user experience.
Work closely with our customer & product focused founder to help drive and execute the product strategy for Stockspot.

5+ years' experience in front-end development
React/React Native experience
Strong background in JavaScript
Expert knowledge of HTML5, CSS3 and related web technologies
Ability to identify and communicate front-end best practices
Strong Computer Science fundamentals
Awareness of cross-browser compatibility issues and client-side performance considerations
Experience with Git flows
Self motivated and can work independently
Outstanding written and spoken communication skills.
You have a “ship fast” mentality. We don't believe in spending forever analysing and debating. The fastest way to validate something is to ship it to our customers.


These skills will come in handy but are not required:

Experience working within an agile, customer focused business
Experience with unit testing
Knowledge or experience working with server-side MVC web frameworks such as Django
Experience with development and deployment of Restful APIs.
Knowledge of Continuous Integration / Deployment.
Experience in implementing highcharts or D3

We're based at Tank Stream Labs, a tech co-working space in the Sydney CBD where we have table-tennis, free barista coffee and Friday breakfasts, yoga classes and a working bar. There's plenty to do in and around the office when you're not working.
