Frontend Developer

June 29


Melbourne, Australia

Let’s start the right way:

Research has proven that men will apply for a job if they meet ~60% of the criteria. However, women and people from other untapped communities generally only apply when they meet 100%.

We don’t think that should be the case. So, if you’re concerned that you’re not ticking all the boxes, but think you may have some transferable skills that could help you ace the role, just apply!


About Redbubble:

Redbubble was born in 2006 in Melbourne with a simple mission. Give independent artists a meaningful new way to sell their creations. In today's uncertain world, we’re helping artists and designers across the planet to generate an income stream. Last year we paid over $100m in artist royalties.

Our teams work hard to make sure that Artists creations are discovered, purchased, appreciated and shared and with over 60m items that’s no small feat. So no matter what you do at the company, you can feel good knowing that you make it possible for creative people to connect with their customers through designs they love.


Engineering Culture: 

The way we build software is a direct reflection of our engineering culture. Our engineering culture is centred around empowerment, ownership, and excellence. 

  • Engineers in our teams are empowered to make the best decisions possible, to support each other, to ask questions and manage their time efficiently. 
  • The care and personal ownership engineers put into their code quality and documentation is something that we ask each individual to own
  • Our systems are complex and carry a lot of interdependence. In order to run as intended, technical excellence is something we strive for from every team member.


The Team & Role:

We're looking for someone to join the Search and Recommendation team as a Frontend Software Engineer. Reporting to the Engineering Manager, this role will be working on everything from URL structure to page performance using Java and moving towards React. Although this is a more front-end focused role, you will be joining a team of engineers and have the opportunity to tackle different challenging problems.  

At Redbubble, software engineers work within product teams and collaborate with other engineers, product managers, designers and stakeholders. A product team at Redbubble could be a platform or an experience team. Typically, every team has a product manager, a designer, an engineering manager and engineers.


What you’ll do:

  • Deliver high-quality, tested, comprehensible & scalable changes to the Redbubble platform.
  • Ship small features and improvements with minimal guidance and support from other team members. Collaborate with the team on larger projects.
  • Solve technical problems of moderate scope and complexity.
  • Work effectively with other roles on the team.


What you’ll bring:

  • Ability to work in an ambiguous environment.
  • Experience in writing automated tests as part of the development workflow.
  • Experience using technologies and frameworks like some of our most-used languages — React, GraphQL, Go, Node.js, Ruby on Rails, would be great but not required as long as there’s deep experience with an object-oriented language and willingness to learn our tech stack.
  • Open attitude and willingness to learn.


What we'll offer you:

  • Meaningful work that allows you to contribute to a mission you believe in.
  • A safe and supportive place to continue to grow and hone your craft.
  • A diverse and inclusive work environment where you can connect with colleagues from around the world.
  • Generous paid vacation, sick leave, flexible work arrangements, and parental leave programs.
  • An opportunity to give back through community volunteer events and corporate partnerships like Code Like a Girl.

We take our values seriously and work hard to build open minded, open hearted teams. Teams who reflect a diversity of experience, identity, perspective, and background. 

Bringing more creativity into the world? It takes all the crayons in the box. Differences help us create a healthy work culture and more engaging marketplace for our artists and customers. If this sounds inspiring 🤔, we’re excited to hear from you.
