If you are looking for a slow-paced job building boring tech for a bank, this is not the role for you.

Stockspot is Australia's fastest growing automated investment business - we use technology to make investing more convenient, efficient and accessible.

Stockspot has been growing fast and we are now looking to add to our development team. We're looking for a back end developer with a desire to work with Python / Django who wants to be involved in building reliable, scaleable, and optimised systems and infrastructure with a good bunch of people.

If you are highly motivated and want to work with people who have the same passion and you have current experience in Python / Django or similar languages / frameworks then this is a great opportunity to work in a fast-growing fintech business.

In the role you will not only be working with the development team but be working closely with all other parts of the business including Client Care, Operations, Marketing, and Product development 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.

You will get to work a variety of different technical challenges including API creation / integrations, trading / performance algorithms, and signup / on-boarding processes.

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


- Collaboratively work in a small team
- Engineer, implement, test and maintain backend components
- Contribute to idea generation sessions
- Document technical specifications
- Participate in the continuous improvement of our back-end infrastructure

Skill and Experience

- Strong back end development experience in Python / Django or other similar frameworks
- Strong fundamentals in Computer Science / Software Engineering
- Solid documentation skills
- Experience with testing frameworks
- Good knowledge of Python / Django packages
- Good knowledge of git and git flow


- Strong relational database experience in SQL server (PostgreSQL / MySQL)
- Agile software development
- Building and implementing RESTful APIs
- Good working knowledge in front end development (e.g. jQuery, AngularJS, HTML5, CSS3)
- Some interest in personal finance and/or tabletennis also a plus
