Job Description

Our client has been built by industry leading pioneers in Australia. After the successful sale of the sector leading company they founded, with an abundance of capital and freed from the constraints of a large business, together they set their attention on delivering the much-needed application of new technology (web, cloud, mobile) to their industry. Together they designed, coded and released their built-for-user SaaS platform MVP, which after five years is now used by 50% of their industry, accounting for more than AUD$20b in transactions per year. Their team has grown to 70, with a Scrum based software engineering group of 30.

Their market leading and unrivalled B2B platform, puts them in a unique position to become the industries foundation platform for all data, services and technology. This step involves extending their solutions into three mobile-led B2C products which will seamlessly connect parties in a four million user ecosystem for the first time ever.

They are looking to hire a Frontend Tech Lead who will own the migration from Angular to React and create a centre of excellence for frontend engineering. You will be required to architect the new React solution, then eventually hire a team to help you build and deliver it.

The ideal candidate will have architected a front-end from scratch before or be able to demonstrate you are clearly experienced enough to drive this project through to successful completion.

Why this job?

  • You will have complete ownership - conceptualise from the ground up where there is 'no prior art'
  • Build your own FE component system
  • You will be given time for testing (E.G the focus is on quality, not pumping something out) for testing
  • Choose your own team and have control over hiring.
  • Completely new project with no current migration path - effectively take what is there and build a well-structured and well architected way.

You will be reporting to a CTO who has a personal passion for FE software development and harnessing the capability of emerging technology, and who has a reputation for his talent in guiding and supporting talented engineers and technical leaders to take their next career steps. He has an amazing track record of his team members being promoted into roles both internally and externally into high profile roles within the technology sector.

This role is being recruited in partnership by Software Recruitment Practice Lead Dan Gordon & Lead Technical Recruiter Sarah Kissane. Dan & Sarah share more than 30 years software recruitment experience and have worked together for more than 15 years. Dan is a certified CSM and CPO, and Sarah built and led her own successful software recruitment company. To find out more about this opportunity, please 'Apply Now' or call Dan on 0401 912 645 or Sarah on 0410 863 499. Job#246650
