  • You’ll just love getting into deep conversations about system architecture, data management, scaling and optimisation to ensure you get the right outcome.
  • As such you’ll have incredible influence on how we use industry leading technology to modernise our code and delivery, and prepare it for the next 3 years of stellar growth.
  • You’ll be reporting directly to the Chief Technology Officer. You’ll be identifying opportunities through user research, app analytics, and technical research, and you’ll be responsible for demonstrating how successful your projects have been through data.
  • You’ll be super-organised - a really pivotal role holding things together and ensuring that our teams are productive and effective - that all projects run successfully - that all metrics targets are exceeded and all work delivers great value to the company and to our app users.
