Software Engineer (Front End)

Job description

We are looking for Front-end Software Engineers who are great problem solvers, enjoy collaborating with others (not just engineers) that value well-written and tested code. An appreciation for building consistently beautiful UI by working with designers to enhance their designs through rich animations and user-friendly interfaces.


You could come from other SaaS product companies but we are also equally interested in agency backgrounds, ideally with a mix of product and website build experience. 


Linktree offers great flexibility and remote working options, we have offices in Melbourne and Sydney but currently have engineers in Perth, Tasmania, Newcastle, Queensland, country Victoria, and Ireland. Our CTO Mitch Malone is also fully remote so you could be anywhere in Australia really. 


What is your tech stack?

We’re using a Gatsby based JAMstack with Wordpress and Contentful as headless CMS behind it for our homepage. Also some Heap, Metabase, Hotjar, Jest testing and continuous integration processes and designing in Figma. Not that you need to be a designer or a pro on all of those tools listed, but we are looking for someone great at picking up new tools and collaborating with designers, growth marketers and product managers.


What is your dev environment like?


Linktree has grown a lot and quite quickly, which means our structures and processes aren't perfect - yet. That should be ok with you and if anything, appeal to you so you can contribute to the design of those systems.


Our teams are scaling out into cross-functional squads you will work closely with Product Managers and Designers on developing user stories. Our Engineering team write unit, integration and e2e tests and we have a DevOps specialist building out DevOps practices.


We push a culture of collaboration and strong communication, with a focus on our Senior hires in their ability to coach and mentor others. We have also recently designed career paths with different options for those that want to progress into management and those that prefer to stick to technical excellence and contribution.



Requirements

Our culture:

We hire with a people-first approach, so more importantly as a human, you will be collaborative, curious, enjoy solving complex problems and have empathy for the growing pains of a rapidly scaling startup.


Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:


  • We are a family-friendly and flexible work environment with our team with a number of our team working hours around school and home commitments.
  • We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all staff on neurodiversity, unconscious bias and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.
  • Our team is diverse across age, gender, and race and we are very proud of that.
  • All Linktree staff work either fully remote or a hybrid remote and in-office sometimes and that will continue even when COVID is behind us
  • We prioritise our team's mental health, with all employees have free access to Smiling Mind & Uprise, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors.
