While these are important, we know that every role at Sharesies is so much more than just a list of qualifications. If you’re super keen but not sure you fit the bill, we’d love to hear from you anyway.

This job closes on the 19th of July 2024 at 5pm. If this job sounds like you, we're keen to learn a bit more about you and your interest in this role! We're passionate about our purpose at Sharesies and are really interested to hear how that aligns (or doesn't) with you and what sense of purpose is important to you at work.

Please include this in your cover letter and send it through along with your CV, and we’ll be in touch!

We’ll be in touch via email after applications close, typically our process looks like:

  1. A quick phone call to get to know you and understand why you’re keen to work for Sharesies
  2. A 60 minute interview where we’d love to hear about your experience and ask a few questions on how you approach various problems
  3. A 60 minute technical interview
  4. A “meet the team” casual conversation (a great chance for you to ask other team members about what it’s like to work at Sharesies)
