Sydney, Australia - Full time
As a Senior Software Engineer at Dovetail, you will be expected to:
Identify, define, design and implement technical solutions for Dovetail’s web product to successfully fulfil the needs of our customers
Work closely with the CEO, CTO, other engineers, external stakeholders, and customers to proactively gather, understand and prioritise areas for improvement.
Collaborate with colleagues to evolve the existing feature set for Dovetail’s web product, including both “backend” and “frontend” development.
Maintain and foster a pragmatic approach to software development within and across our teams (think - “Just in time engineering”)
Mentor colleagues to promote team wide career and personal growth through established practices like code review, pair programming, design sparring, etc.
Contribute new features written in programming languages like TypeScript Node.js, TypeScript React, HTML, and CSS.
Collaborate on, improve, and maintain detailed guidelines and standards for product development processes and application security based on industry best practices and your experience.
As a Senior Software Engineer, ideally you will join us with:
Several years writing code and managing teams at other startups or world-class software companies. You should be able to hit the ground running and step into team management as we grow.
The mindset of a problem solver or problem finder.
Extensive hands-on exposure to building the frontend and backend of web products with technology like TypeScript, React, GraphQL, Node, ProseMirror, PostgreSQL and AWS.
Practical knowledge of how to architect cloud services so they can scale to thousands of concurrent users worldwide (“web-scale” if you will!)
An understanding of all roles involved in product development—from product management to marketing—and the ability to explain how each one adds value to the business.
Excellent, concise communication so you can easily convey your thoughts, opinions, and feelings with other teammates, founders, and customers.
The right attitude towards a sense of urgency, risk, and uncertainty about the future that comes with working at an early-stage startup.
Experience articulating constructive criticism on architectural or design decisions beyond phrases like “I don’t like it” or “it doesn’t look good”.
The ability to offer thoughtful opinions on important business decisions like fundraising, hiring, and establishing management structure if / when it’s required.
Competitive base salary plus equity. Even though we’re a small startup, we pay salaries that can hold their own against the big Sydney tech companies.
KitKat days. We understand the importance of mental health and wellbeing, these are extra paid days holiday for the whole company where everyone can take a break.
Floating public holiday. You can choose to work public holidays and use that day another time in the year.
Flexible working hours and location – we value work-life balance, especially right now. While we’re mostly back in the office, you’re free to work where you want, when you want.
Personal learning and development budget. We’re a big fan of personal development, and prefer to home-grow leaders rather than filling leadership / management externally.
A brand new architecturally designed office in Surry Hills with free snacks, beer on tap and drinks, three different coffee machines, social areas, and a rooftop!
TGIF events are a monthly company wide activity on a Friday for the whole team.
Salary sacrifice. We have a salary sacrifice policy for work related items.
Sit-stand desks, 4k 27” monitor, ergonomic chairs, quiet spaces, and collaboration spaces, to suit all kinds of working styles.
Pet friendly office! We love dogs and often have dogs in the office.
Regular lunch and learn events, opportunities for presenting at webinars and conferences, and networking through our investor community.
Annual company retreats.
