Leader Showing Business Plan To Colleagues During A Meeting

Technical Lead

We are a fast growing group of brands located in the Sydney CBD, seeking the services of a Technical Lead to join our innovative team of professionals. This is a full-time role based in our office in Circular Quay, Sydney and reports directly to the CEO.

  •   Attractive CBD location and opportunity for personal-growth
  •   Work with one of Australia’s fast growing online ASX listed brands
  •   Fast paced, high performing, creative culture   

As Technical Lead for Collaborate, you will be responsible for your system’s architecture, engineering design and code quality and enjoy nurturing/mentoring your team of engineers. You will be equally comfortable evolving the scalability, functionality and efficiency platform of our platform and getting stuck into code as required.  

Someone who is at home making recommendations on tech stacks and design tech solutions and enjoys working closely with engineers, producers, management and partners to promote collaboration  will thrive in this role. You will be a key player in the optimisation of our deals with key partners that include Uber, RACV, Aon and Subaru

Ideally, you will have strong leadership experience gained from within a software development team where Agile SCRUM methodology has been utilised.

We actively encourage participation from the all team members in the entire engineering and product development process. No egos. This is a hands on role, where you are expected to participate in engineering workshops, cut code, conduct peer reviews and help troubleshoot issues.

The Tech

Your team will be responsible for an array of systems, services, tools and reports that control all aspects of the Collaborate platform. The platform is built with AngularJS, .Net Framework (MVC Pattern) C#, Entity Framework, LINQ, and SQLServer.
