Senior Fullstack Javascript Engineer – MERN

Job description

Over 10,000 Instagram-first agencies and brands trust Sked Social to visually plan an attractive and cohesive feed, automatically publish posts of ALL types (for real), and analyze and learn from every post.

Much like a big family, our home base is Melbourne, Australia but our team members are distributed around the globe. We’re a fully remote startup that’s been profitable since day one, and we’re continuing to scale up our offering to customers.

Our remote-friendly style means everyone at Sked works in the way that works best for them. Happy days. Happy team. It also means we can meet the needs of our customers across all timezones. Everybody wins!

The Role 

We’re searching for a Senior Fullstack Engineer with experience in complex and dynamic environments to join our team. The core mission of our engineers is to build a product that our customers will love. You’ll be collaborating particularly with our other engineers across the region, and our CTO based in Australia.

Your role will involve contributing to the planning, design, creation, testing and documentation of features and web services provided by Sked. You’ll be integral in building advanced frontend architecture and automation for better product and engineering performance. As a senior team member, you will need to practice a high degree of ownership and be confident responding to requests for information and advice, whilst balancing competing demands to be sure we achieve our objectives.

In addition, it’s essential that you share knowledge, ideas and solutions with the team, remove technical debt, mentor junior engineers and implement best practices to support our culture.

Our current tech stack is MERN (MongoDB, Express, React and node), running on AWS. The frontend was originally written in Angular but we’ve migrated 70% to React (and working on the remainder). We use social media API endpoints such as Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin, Pinterest, Google My Business, etc, CI/CD and BI tools for engineering and product planning.

To be effective, we believe you need to: 

  • Bring several years of full stack experience, with a high level of ownership and a commitment to quality and best practice. We expect this role to be 80% backend and 20% frontend.
  • Have proven skills across Node.js, Typescript, and experience with CI/CD, MongoDB, AWS and Restful API specs and documentation. Plus experience with React or Angular.
  • Have experience with TDD and test frameworks such as Jest.
  • Be committed to developing your skills and perfecting your craft.
  • Have shipped product (that is, something people paid for), ideally in a B2B SaaS environment.
  • Love working in a small team, being productive relatively rapidly,  and getting straight into the ‘thick of it’.
  • Not be afraid of debugging complicated issues or working on refactoring/updating older code.
  • Love deploying well-tested and effective code to production.
  • Enjoy working on a mix of new projects and improvements to existing features.

Some understanding or experience in social media management and/or social networks (from a business users’ perspective or their API) is highly desirable but not essential.

To be considered, apply now (including a short covering note,  introducing yourself) and I’ll be in touch (Rebecca). We have a streamlined, straight-forward interview process and make decisions swiftly.

Note: You will need to be based in a timezone +/- 3hrs from AEST to enable effective teamwork.
