What you’ll do

We believe people build better systems if they’re doing what they enjoy. Day to day you’ll be doing lots of programming, testing, building and deploying. For larger or more complex tasks, you’ll be writing up design documents and be involved with planning their delivery. We actively review each other's work through RFC documents and Pull Requests.

Within the Australia Pacific team, we hold a daily standup to chat and discuss any work priorities, but this is flexible depending on where you are. We also hold regular catchups with the broader Liftango teams who are based across the globe, to ensure we see each others faces often, hear about the exciting things underway and keep in touch with where are headed as a company.

Who we’re looking for

Passionate people with great communication and technical skills who are keen to grow themselves and their team.

If you love working with Typescript and NodeJS this role will be a great fit. However, we think programming skills are more than a single language or framework!

If you want to work on global challenges that have a positive impact on people and the environment, definitely apply.

Tech Stack

Different teams use different stacks, for this role it will primarily be:

  • NodeJS
  • Typescript
  • Express
  • NestJS
  • PostgreSQL
  • AWS
  • Docker
  • Terraform
