Position description Apply now Share

As a frontend engineer, you will help design and develop features for our education and work pathways products by working closely with various stakeholders including technical leads, product managers, product designers, and quality assurance.

We have traditionally built full stack web applications using technologies such as Ruby on Rails and C# .NET, but we are in the process of moving towards separating out our frontend and backend. This presents a unique opportunity for you to come in and work alongside our technical and design teams to build out our frontend ecosystem and provide input into our technical roadmap.

Making a meaningful difference with mission-critical software that empowers communities to thrive.

ReadyTech is more than just a one-trick pony playing in one market with one product, or one customer. We re-imagine, design, develop and deliver technology to solve our customer’s diverse problems – supporting multiple businesses across a variety of markets to be ready for anything.

We’re an ASX-listed company which means we are stable, have a strong track record of sustainable growth and have a significant number of long-term customers.  So, what does this mean for you? It means we can offer you an experience that will push you to be your best, provide career-building challenges, and that will offer you numerous growth opportunities that can’t be found in any other company.

It’s an inclusive environment where there is no place for politics, where we get our heads together to solve the problems that really matter to our customers, and where we always stay focused on our north star – the communities we serve, and society at large.

  • Work within our engineering team to align our frontend architecture with our technical strategy and roadmap
  • Ensure new features are built according to design system standards
  • Help upskill and mentor other engineers in frontend specific skills such as React, Sass and HTML

More about you:

  • You have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • Ability to work completely autonomously (if required) on a wide range of development tasks and maintain an excellent attention to detail
  • A basic understanding of user needs, and a willingness to be involved in user research and collaboration to identify the best user experience

  • You have at least 5 years commercial experience working on web products
  • Experience working with design and mock-up tools, such as Figma
  • Experience working with front end development environments like Storybook

Great to have but not mandatory:

  • While not mandatory, backend experience or familiarity with Ruby on Rails is a valuable advantage
