With a sufficient timezone overlap with the team, we're able to hire eligible candidates for this role from any location in Australia or New Zealand.

Your future team

To become a 100-year company, we need a world-class engineering organisation made up of empowered teams who have the tools and infrastructure to do the best work of their careers.

As part of a unified R&D team, Engineering is prioritising key initiatives which support our customers in moving to cloud while simultaneously continuing to bring the most value to our customers through investments across our core product suite – including Jira, Confluence, Trello, and Bitbucket.

We're looking for people who want to write the future and who believe that we can accomplish so much more together.

  • Build high-performing client code that is fast, testable, scalable, and high quality

  • Lead code reviews and documentation, and take on complex bug fixes

  • Drive the success of projects, from the technical design, implementation, and launch to operation

  • Onboard and mentor other engineers

Your background

  • Experience with Javascript (ES6), HTML5, CSS and experience with modern Javascript frameworks (e.g., React, AngularJS, Vue).

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree (preferably a Computer Science degree or equivalent experience).

  • Understanding of modern frontend ecosystem, including but not limited to bundling, linting, testing and releasing.

  • Extensive experience with modern testing frameworks (e.g., Jest, Cypress, Mocha, Chai).

  • Strong comfortability with the JavaScript language and ecosystem.

  • Experience building frontend applications at scale.

  • Experience in Agile software development methodologies.
