Description

Here’s your chance to join an Aussie startup and have your voice heard while putting your Rails and Backbone skills to excellent use.

We’re a small team with a versatile skill set looking for someone to bring their technical expertise to the table, and take the app we’re building from ‘almost there’ to rock solid first release. From there the sky’s the limit and we want to build a long term relationship to constantly refine and grow the app (and the business).

Location is no obstacle either - given you’re a great communicator who posts regular commits and puts in the hard yards working remotely is no problem.

What we’re looking for:

  • Ruby on Rails paired with Backbone JS experience. We have an existing code base that would be hard to manage if you’re not versed on these frameworks
  • Someone who’s great at getting stuck in and implementing solutions - a real ‘do-er’
  • A great communicator who provides regular updates - good or bad, we can work it all out if we work together
  • Someone who can start immediately, dedicating at least 20 hours a week to the project

Extra credit for:

  • Readable code with helpful comments
  • Test driven development so when we get huge we don’t fall over
  • Skills to adapt the application for iOS and Android
  • We’ve got the front-end design and UX skills covered, but if you happen to be into that kind or thing too - great!

The role will be contract based for now - we’re in the middle of the final push before we start testing with our first users. However once we’re live we will be continually adding new features and improvements, so there is scope for this role to grow into an ongoing permanent position.

Why work with us?

Good documentation

We know that clear documentation is the foundation for starting off a project on the right foot, so we’ll provide you with the big picture as well as specific details for each feature.

Quick feedback

Because we’re a small agile team with the ability to make quick decisions, we won’t slow you down or leave you hanging for days while we get our sh*t together.

Your input is valued

We’re not just looking for a coding robot; if you’ve got a suggestion on a better way to tackle a feature or problem with the app, we’re all ears.

Aussie culture

Like any Australian startup, we love a good laugh to go along with rolling up the sleeves and getting stuck in to the hard work. We also know when it’s time to take a break and enjoy life outside of the terminal.

Meaningful equity available

We’re looking for long term partnerships with great talent who want to share in the success of the app and the business. If you’ve got the drive to help us succeed, you’ll be rewarded with a real stake in the business. In the meantime we'll offer a fair rate for your services and quick payment.
