Posted 6 days ago

At THE ICONIC, innovation drives us; we believe that innovation should not be sitting in a silo team but rather be part of everyone and everything we do & deliver. Every person in tech has a voice and we find that our best products are achieved through collaboration (usually over a coffee in front of a whiteboard).  

Your Team

We have over 100 people in tech, not to mention 45 nationalities (and counting!) This means that our skills and experience are diverse, allowing for greater collaboration and constant learning. All of our teams are cross-functional, mission-driven and able to iterate from inception to production (DevOps mentality) without being blocked or having to ask permission from other teams. We love to move fast and validate learning using data (lucky for us our Data Science & Analytics team is world-class!)

We look for Data Scientists and Data Analysts who can solve complex data problems and are experts in data analysis. Our systems handle a massive amount of traffic, and with more than 5 million customers visiting theiconic.com.au each month, it’s guaranteed you’re going to get first-hand feedback from customers on the code you deploy!
