Our digital products company build innovative business intelligence products that are tracking hundreds of millions of data points each month. We take a unique approach in non-traditional fields, apply big data thinking to our dataset, derive deep insights into our clients’ businesses and deliver them in real time.

We are currently growing fast internationally. This presents us with a different set of challenges and opportunities in building more scalable infrastructure and smarter algorithms to handle ever-increasing amount of data. Any data science or data visualisation experience of yours will also be valuable in helping us make better sense of our data.

The type of developer we are looking for is one who is multi-talented and full stack, but likes working predominantly on data and back end tasks. Other attributes we value include being well organised, being able to manage their workload effectively, being able to work well independently and as part of a small team, and the confidence to contribute their own ideas.

 

Specifically, the skills and experience we’re looking for are:

  • Expert knowledge of Ruby on Rails
  • Testing of all forms (e.g. RSpec, MiniTest, FactoryGirl)
  • Profficiency in relational databases and handcrafted SQL (preferably PostgresSQL but others are also fine.)
  • Use a modern version control system (e.g. Git, Mercurial)
  • Good knowledge and experience with AWS (e.g. EC2, RDS, S3, Redshift, Kinesis.)
  • Big data background a big plus (e.g. data mining, data visualisation.)
  • Experience with modern JavaScript framework a plus (e.g. Ember, Angular, React.)
  • Strong communication skills
  • Autonomous self-starter
  • Passion for learning 

 

We offer good money, challenging tasks, and fun work environment in our large bright office in Port Melbourne. We want you to start yesterday, but we’re willing to wait for the right person.
