Lead Software Engineer’s….
I am working with one of my personal favourite clients in Melbourne on a Lead Engineer. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a fun and passionate business. I have placed a lot of their team over the years and the growth will not stop – I know first-hand this is a great place to work!
Right in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, a 4-minute walk from Flinders Station, you will find this bright, bustling office on the top floor of an old school Collins Street building. Complete with dart boards, a table tennis room, a rooftop balcony and plenty of activities to get those creative juices flowing.
No – the culture is not dictated by the beer fridge and the table tennis and the darts (I mean it makes it a little more fun). The culture is created by the awesome team in there, they have some of the smartest people I have worked with & they all have one common goal – which is to build amazing technology that the consumer can’t get enough of.
We are looking for a Development Team Lead to join this awesome bunch of humans. To have the job nailed down you will still be technical and “hands on” whilst also managing and mentoring your team. The team sits at around 8 strong and you will get to work on business-critical platforms with the latest and greatest tech.
What will you be working on?
The business has a range of brands that they manage, which sit within the sports and performance media space, they have millions of users which tune into their product every weekend. They move fast, release often and regularly look to innovate.
There will also be the chance to work on greenfield projects as the business moves forward with new brands and applications.
What about them:

With a fantastic culture, amazing CBD offices and a culture of software engineers who are passionate about technology and delivering great outcomes. Picture an equally social and professional environment, table tennis tournaments, regular social/work events, beverages on the rooftop and the choice to attend your preferred tech conferences!
