About Us:
As a Sydney Based Start-up, we have grown from humble ambitions to a team of over forty people working to revolutionise the way the hospitality industry operates. Our SaaS application incorporates ordering and cloud-based payment functionality, which we plan to scale across our world-class platform. We power the modern Australian hospitality industry, performing large—and growing—numbers of business to business transactions daily, and provide unmatched insights to both venues and suppliers. As we continue to gain momentum behind our offering, we are now looking for a lead / senior software engineer to dive in with our team, building the tools and technology we need to sustainably scale our solution throughout the entire industry. You will join us at a key moment in the journey of our SaaS development – helping to shape the future of the hospitality industry as we endeavour to become the sole, completely integrated platform for B2B ordering, payments, and insights for over eighty thousand Australian venues in the next five years. Your work will have a heavy hand in ensuring that Australia remains the most sustainable, diverse and premium food basin in the world.
  
The Role:
As a Lead/Senior Software Engineer, you will work with the Engineering Team to develop our system to the defined architectural requirements and design further capabilities in order to provide a fully scalable solution in a SaaS context for our planned growth over the next 5 years. You will be responsible for providing technical expertise in building and maintaining full stack features in our platform. Reporting directly to the CTO, you will be in charge of the delivery of exciting new products and features within our Engineering Team, as well as providing guidance on our technological priorities and focus.  We are flexible with conditions such as working from home or adjusted hours – we value the work you put in, not the hours counted at your desk.
  
Specific responsibilities will include:
  • Lead / Work with a small, highly capable team in developing solutions to interesting problems faced throughout our planned growth
  • Sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with the CTO and Engineering Squad, you will influence our technological priorities and focus while taking ownership of delivering exciting new features and products within our team
  • You will be scaffolding world-class software, data and machine learning to drive growing brand engagement, customer acquisition, sales growth, cost and cash flow efficiencies as well as business insights between retailers and suppliers like never before
As a candidate, you should have:
  • Experience with Node.js, partnered with a solid understanding of SOA design principles, integration patterns, and best practices including messaging systems
  • Well-developed soft skills: interpersonal communication, excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Strongly value and understand clean, reusable and maintainable code
  • An understanding of relational databases is desirable, but not essential (PostgresQL, GraphQL, gRPC)
  • Front end knowledge is highly desirable (React + Redux + Typescript)
Why Work with Us:
  • Be a part of the transformation of the hospitality industry with a team that works to genuinely improve the lives of every person who creates and shares the food and drinks we all love
  • A focus on your personal learning and development with ongoing opportunities to attend conferences and events
  • Flexible working hours and the opportunity to work from home
  • High-end computer supplied (we pay for you phone bill too!)
  • We want to know why you do what you do, and what we can do to help you succeed!
