Senior Fullstack Engineer (Elixir)

Xplor - Middle Park, VIC

IT
Source: uWorkin

JOB DESCRIPTION

Take a seat on our rocket ship and join us on our mission to change education around the world. We're a rapidly growing SaaS company and are looking for a Senior Software Engineer (willing to learn Elixir) to join our Product Engineering team.

Who we are?

Xplor and QK Technologies have recently joined forces to become an international team of over 150 people hailing from offices in Melbourne, Brisbane and London. Being part of TSG, we all share the passion for education and innovative technology and want to support those who make it great.

Our product suite is changing education by helping childcare services and educators easily manage all aspects of their operations, as well as by connecting parents with their children's well-being and growth.

Tech Stack

Our primary stack is Elixir, TypeScript + React, and PostgreSQL. Most of our engineers had little or no Elixir experience when they joined. Many of us had never even done any functional programming. Starting from scratch in a new language is still very fresh in our minds since it’s something we’ve all been through. We’ve supported our people through that process many times and we know that if someone wants to learn Elixir, we can teach it, fast. If you’ve ever thought about making the leap to a new stack, Xplor can take you from “Hello World” to shipping features in no time.

What will I be doing as a Senior Software Engineer?

It really comes down to build it, ship it, and support your team.

You’ll be joining the Playground team, focused on providing tools to aid educators in early years learning. As a Senior Software Engineer your job will be to provide the guidance and expertise needed to solve complex technical problems. The right person for this role:

  • Loves solving technically challenging problems
  • Enjoys learning new systems and technologies
  • Can write high quality, reliable code
  • Can work with a high degree of autonomy
  • Enjoys mentoring and supporting the people around them
  • Wants to build great products, not just write code

Requirements

What would make me a good candidate?

  • Substantial professional experience as a software engineer
  • An ability to learn and apply new languages and technologies quickly
  • Extensive experience with web frameworks such as Rails or Django. We use Elixir/Phoenix but you’ll likely be learning it on the job
  • Strong front-end skills. We primarily use React and TypeScript. Bonus points if you actually like CSS
  • Robust knowledge of databases and SQL
  • Experience with building and maintaining CI/CD pipelines, and an understanding of cloud server infrastructure (we use AWS)
  • A mature approach to understanding and working with existing codebases
  • Alignment with the idea that we’re building software to facilitate the business in its broader goals, and the trades off that can entail

Benefits

What it means to work for us

Sheryl Sandberg once said, "If you're offered a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask what seat! Just get on." We couldn't agree more. So, are you ready to get on board?
