Senior Software Developer


To AUD 120k plus super

How many times do you stop and think about the impact on the environment of your favourite fashion brands? Stacey Dooley investigated the impact of the fast fashion movement in her 2018 documentary and discovered the devastating effects on the planet and animals and also looked at harsh labour conditions.

So imagine being able to work for a tech company that uses the power of consumer choices to create a sustainable future.

The role:

We are looking for a sustainable conscious Senior Laravel Developer who wants to build products that make a real difference, in a fast paced social impact tech company.

Working closely with the Head of Tech in a small remote team of 4 engineers who are all highly talented, you will contribute to all technical aspects of the strategy, product development and systems, responsible for developing:

  • Efficient and robust systems that aggregate multiple data sources to create world leading sustainability brand ratings
  • Polisher user-facing tools to empower shoppers to make better choices, and brands to become more sustainable


About you:

Ideally you will have 8 plus years software engineering experience shipping code in production tech stacks with at least 4 years in a senior role

Strong technical skills within:

  • Laravel and mySQL
  • Ability to developer highly scalable code and systems with SOLID principles
  • Some exposure to MongoDB
  • Experience with AWS and DevOps processes
  • PostgreSQL, MySQL or similar
  • Understanding of RESTful APIs design and implementation
  • NodeJS experience
  • Exposure to WordPress
  • Frontend development with knowledge of React, Redux or styled components

Aside from the technical skills, you will be a good fit for the team if you also have:

  • A passion for sustainability and a commitment to the mission
  • Communicate effectively in writing and verbally - you're not afraid to ask questions or reach out for support when needed
  • Have a real appetite to discover and learn new technologies
  • Enjoy autonomy and remote working

What's in it for you?

  • Base up to AUD 120k plus super
  • Remote support
  • Rapidly growing startup with a social impact mission
  • Make meaningful contributions to the codebase of a large scale application
  • Focus on achieving goals rather than hours spent on a task
  • Annual allowance to set up your work space
