THE POSITION

Our roster has an opening with your name on it 

You’ll help us refocus and revitalise our legacy admin tooling systems by converging technology and building a better platform. You’ll push forward our Customer Support tooling capabilities and increase the ability to respond to our customers with timely, accurate information. You’ll maintain our tooling platform, being responsible for upgrading it and using an inner-sourcing model with the ability to have other teams submit and release their own tooling.

THE GAME PLAN

Everyone on our team has a part to play

You are a significant and autonomous contributor. Your work is consistently of high quality. You solve difficult problems, applying appropriate technologies and best practices. You work with your team to invent, design and build software that is stable and performant. You are proficient in a broad range of design approaches and know when it is appropriate to use them and when it is not. Your solutions are pragmatic. You consider the legacy of the code you produce and write code that an SDE unfamiliar with the system can understand. You limit the use of short-term workarounds. You do things with the proper level of complexity the first time (or at least minimise incidental complexity). You create flexible software without over-engineering. You make appropriate trade-offs, re-use where possible, and are judicious about introducing dependencies. You are efficient with resource usage (e.g., system hardware, database, memory/CPU, etc).

  • You work in project ideas with customers, stakeholders, and peers.
  • You write simple and extendable code following standards and best practices. You test your code thoroughly.
  • You help balance customer requirements with the team requirements.
  • You help your team evolve by actively participating in the code review process, design discussions, team planning, and ticket/metric/COE reviews.
  • You take on projects and make software enhancements that improve the team software and processes.
  • You work to resolve the root cause of complex problems, leaving software better and easier to maintain than when you found it.
  • You help recruit, interview and on-board for your team.
  • You estimate stories/tasks accurately and deliver them in time.
  • You mentor and help to develop others. 
  • On-call rotation where required. You provide excellent customer support.
  • Most importantly, you are; humble, pragmatic, self-managed, thirsty for knowledge, never satisfied and always challenging the norm.
