We are currently searching for a driven Senior Front End Developer to join our client’s fast-growth, enterprise-grade, SaaS-based business.

Let us stop and tell you right now, this is a RARE opportunity with an incredible company! Furthermore, this is a permanent full-time position based here in Brisbane (although, we are open to other candidates across Australia that enjoy remote work – as long as you have full working rights in Australia!)

As a Senior Front End Developer, you will be required to produce and implement functional software solutions on our client’s industry-leading web applications, taking on end-to-end responsibility for projects of increasing complexity. Ideally, you will require very little oversight beyond high-level direction taking a complex user story, breaking it down into sub-tasks, and completing sub-tasks with relative ease. Using your skills and experience, you know when not to write code, when to delete code and when to question assumptions and proposed solutions before implementing. You will also be the go-to for a number of more junior developers looking to learn from the best.

But that’s enough about the tech! To really thrive in this role, you will have a customer-obsessed mindset, strong cross-functional collaboration skills and drive your team to take ownership of issues from creation through to delivery to ensure customer commitments are met and exceeded.
