Insight Partners.

Salary range: $175,000–$185,000 AUD plus stock options
About the team
This role sits in the Frontend Foundations team which is composed of product designers and engineers. The team helps to improve the productivity and efficacy of other R&D teams working in the frontend, while also helping to make our UX a world class experience.
Experience required for this role

You are an experienced individual contributor or leader in your current job.
You have a firm grasp of the software trade using Type Script and React.
You have experience maintaining a large and complex codebase over time. Through personal experience, you have learned the importance of architecting a simple and maintainable codebase to keep velocity high and sustainable.
You've built and maintained component libraries. You care about writing simple and accessible frontend components with tests that inspire confidence and are easy to maintain.
You enjoy collaborating with other engineers and designers to solve problems, challenging each other to discover the best solution for a problem using a balance of passion, pragmatism, and empathy.
You are a results-oriented person, someone who is focused on iteratively delivering valuable things to your customers; who proactively changes direction based on clear and transparent business information, and someone who helps others do the same.
You will like this role if...

You enjoy a balance of coding and leadership.
You enjoy collaborating with designers to achieve the best outcome for both users and development teams.
You like a balance of freedom and responsibility, being treated as an adult.
You enthusiastically accept radically candid feedback; feedback that is thoughtful, timely, and directly actionable, and offer the same benefit to others.
You enjoy doing things the right way from the very beginning, knowing you are working on a valuable asset.
You want to do the best work of your life with other like-minded people.
A typical day might include…

Solving complex problems and taming complexity, impacting all engineering teams at Octopus by improving the platform upon which our world class frontends are built.
Advocating for process improvements and keeping the team focused on the most valuable things, driving the team towards solution delivery. Contributing to both design and engineering working together harmoniously.
Gathering feedback from designers and engineers so you can plan changes to the design system that accommodates everyone.
Changing source code hosted in Git Hub, collaborating on a pull-request, getting feedback from other Octopus Deploy engineers on how the changes affect them and iterating on this to reach the desired outcome.
Pairing with another engineer to solve a complex technical problem or decide how to best architect the frontend for new features.
Working with designers to plan the next evolution of our navigation experience in our frontend, based on feedback received from customers.
Equal Opportunity

We’ve built an inclusive workplace culture and understand the true importance of culture-add, versus culture-fit.
From day 1, you'll have a buddy helping you get your bearings. You can book in coffee chats with anyone in the company. We encourage everyone to have a voice in all aspects of the product and the business. So much so that we have an open chat policy (all channels are public by default) and everyone is welcome!
Also when it comes to inclusivity, we mean it, check out our

handbook !
