You will play a key role as part of our growing Engineering team and have the opportunity to learn from and work with the Engineer across the organisation. Our Junior Engineers are the future of Hnryโ€™s Engineering team so what better way to learn and develop, than understanding what each squad does to contribute to the success of the business.
You will work to build a polished experience for our customers while also scaling the systems required to operate the business. Youโ€™ll be expected to learn the development of new features, from concept through to release and work collaboratively with Product Owners and Designers, Customer Representatives and other members of the Hnry team.

Engaging with customers and all members of the business to actively identify problems and propose solutions
Following best practices in building robust and reliable software and work collaboratively with the team

Bonus points for the following:

Experience being self-employed (freelancing, contracting etc) in any industry/profession

๐Ÿ’ช How we work

We follow agile practices, delivering improvements iteratively in small chunks. We track the impact of our work and measure ourselves on results, not the amount of code written.
Weโ€™re growing fast, and are focused on building a well designed, scalable & robust platform. In some areas of the work (e.g. payment processing) there is very little margin for error.
Our technology platform is built in Ruby on Rails, and we also use a bunch of AWS services (via Terraform), Postgres, Docker, and a little bit of React.
We have automated tests, continuous deployment, and release to production multiple times per day.
We review each others code, and set aside time for hacking on experimental features, refactoring and/or learning new things.
We work hard and finish on time, no crazy hours.
Salary banding: $60,000 - $70,000 per annum (depending on experience)
