Join one of 2019’s top Australian startups, and be part of a team that’s changing the way people think about their financial future. 


Wondering what it's like to be apart of Flare's Engineering team? 

Meet Liz Crawford, our Chief Product and Technology Officer, speaking to what it's like working on the Engineering and Product team at Flare.

We are looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer (React Native) that sweats the small stuff to join our rapidly growing team in Sydney. If you’re the kind of developer who:

  • Frequently annoys friends and strangers with how cool this transition or animation they’ve just found/built
  • Gets up early to watch WWDC/Google IO
  • Has strong feelings about design and has an eye for detail
  • Dreams about finding just the right easing function
  • Gets a kick out of working on things that make a difference

...then we have to talk! You’ll report to the Head of Engineering, in a fast, collaborative Product and Development team. You will build and support UIs for our services and applications using modern web and mobile technologies, and drive the adoption of best practises and standards.

Day to Day

  • Design and build clean testable UIs
  • Participate in team planning and software design sessions
  • Collaborate with designers and users to bring static designs to life
  • Understand and apply fundamental design principles behind a scalable application


  • 5+ years mobile development experience (e.g. native, React Native, etc)
  • Strong Javascript / Typescript knowledge
  • Solid appreciation of visual design and UX
  • Experience with automated test suites
  • Bachelor’s degree (or relevant qualifications/experience)

Nice to Have

  • Exposure to multiple front-end stacks
  • Familiarity with native iOS / Android APIs

Our Stack

We believe the traditional front-end approach is the final monolith, and limits scalability within multi-team / multi-service environments. That’s why we are migrating our current stack to a micro-frontend architecture. Some of the technologies we use are:

  • Angular 8
  • Typescript
  • StencilJS
  • Webpack / Babel
  • Akita state management
  • React Native
