Fresh Equities is a high growth, fully funded, fintech startup headquartered in Melbourne, Victoria serving both local and international investors.

We are all about reducing friction in the market, driving up participation and helping more investors discover and back high growth companies. We are only a couple of years old but have already had a massive impact helping both investors and companies.

We’re looking for a Full Stack Developer to join our product team and help build our core product. You'll build, test, and learn new features based on your squad's mission, either driving growth, increasing engagement, or product improvements. You will grow a product that currently spans websites built in React & Next.js, apps built in React Native, and our backend system built in Elixir & Phoenix. Prior experience with these languages is valuable but not a requirement. You will need to excel at working collaborative within your squad. You will learn a lot about how the capital markets operate and how best to support investors.

This role would suit a mid-level developer with 1-4+ years experience, and looking to earn between $75k to $90k plus super and equity in the business.


The Role

  • Own the build and deployment of user facing features.
  • Work closely with a mission-focused multi-disciplinary squad in 5 week batches.
  • Autonomy to decide on the most important thing to work on during regular cool-down weeks
  • Expectation to be a problem-solver first, able to work with developers, designers and product managers to find solution to business problems
  • Lift the state of Fresh's developer craft by working with internal guilds on new tech, patterns and standards.

About you

  • You’re have a background in software or web development, a bachelors in computer science, software engineering, or equivalent
  • You have experience with code in production in Google Cloud, Azure, or AWS
  • You have a capacity to experiment with new languages, best practices and problems

Applications with a cover letter addressing these points will be prioritised.


At Fresh we empower our team to identify and solve problems as they see them by working in tight, often cross-functional teams, to deliver amazing user outcomes.

If you don’t meet all these traits, that’s ok. Diversity of thought, background and approach are all essential ingredients for an amazing customer outcome. Just let us know what it is you think you can bring to the role and the team and why you’re excited to join in.
