About Easy Agile

Easy Agile are an Australian founded bootstrapped SaaS start-up. We have four products built on top of Atlassian’s flagship product Jira, sold via the Atlassian Marketplace. Profitable from year 1, we are on a truly unique journey with an emphasis on work/family/community/self balance, while growing a high-performing team. Due to our extremely fortunate position, we are driven by giving back to our community and our people - enabling our people to live the lives they only dreamed of.

We believe that being agile is a mindset, and that true agility unlocks a team’s potential to be happier at work, have more impact in the solutions they’re building, and be more focused on their customer’s success! That’s why our purpose is not to help teams “do” agile, but be agile. We’re proud to call over 1,900 companies our customers, including Netflix, Harvard, Amazon, Lego, Mercedes and Twitter.

We offer flexible working arrangements - from one of our offices (Wollongong HQ or Sydney), remote or hybrid. We optimise for collaboration and connection face to face as a team, once a quarter.

As a Senior Software Engineer at Easy Agile you will be hands on and extend from coaching and mentoring junior members of your team, through to deciding how we build our apps, to helping flesh out what we'll ship in our next release. You'll work in small, fluid and highly focused teams to ship new features and improvements to our products which service over 170,000 users around the world!
You’ll use Typescript, React and any other technology you deem to be the best way to build and improve the front-end of our apps for Atlassian Jira! You’ll also have the opportunity to speak directly with our customers and hear first-hand about what they’re finding, and how we can improve our products to suit their needs.

People over perfection
