Full Stack Engineer
The role - Help tens of millions of frontline workers excel
We’re looking for an awesome Full Stack Engineer in Melbourne to join our growing engineering team which spans Australia, the US and the UK.
Primarily, we’re looking for someone who can write great software that solves real problems for customers and help a team around you do the same. This may sound simple, but the potent combination of a) understanding the true nature of the problem you’re solving (and being willing to play Sherlock to get to the bottom of it) and b) being able to write elegant and powerful code that solves those problems is a rare bird indeed.
We’re not incredibly hung up on “Years experience” or “Framework expertise” as these are rarely good predictors of good future performance.
What we do care about is a great sense of design, good problem solving abilities, the capacity to learn quickly and an overriding desire to drive success for customers through working with.
What you'll do
- Our stack is comprised of many languages, technologies and services, including: Python / Django, React, React Native, GraphQL, Docker and AWS. You will work across all of these to deliver critical customer features and major technological improvements. This will include contributing to our backend, web-app, native app and infrastructure / configuration management code-bases.
- You will develop abstractions and best practices across the entire stack to make us a more efficient engineering team and to help us build better products for our customers.
- You will work closely with team members from different departments to define and execute on projects which will have a significant impact on the direction and future of our company.
Who you are
- Someone who has built useful, thoughtful software in the past, either during their education, at home or at work.
- Someone who can turn ideas into production-ready code with autonomy and with a strong will to always do the best by users and the rest of the team.
- Someone who cares about writing quality code and building a great product. We expect you to develop opinions about how we can do that better and to productively share those ideas with the rest of the team.

What it's like to be an engineer at Myagi
Engineers at Myagi are typically generalists with one or more key specialties. Working at a fast growing company means our engineers get to work across the entire stack and to be responsible for critical projects - thus, we value people who are excited by the idea of having a large impact on the future of our business and user-base every single day. We also value people who enjoy working autonomously, cross-functionally and who are always looking to develop skills in areas which interest them.
Because of this, our team consists of people who are excited about finding elegant solutions to difficult technical challenges in-order to deliver exceptional user experiences. Recent and upcoming challenges include: Building a powerful frontline messaging app to rival the likes of Slack and Whats-app, shifting to fully immutable infrastructure deployment using Docker and AWS, developing an automated network growth engine to connect companies in our network and building an innovative on-device video download system to conserve bandwidth for enterprise customers.
Finally, a large part of our focus as an engineering team is on self-development and mentor-ship. Partly, we encourage this through our weekly rotating lightning talks and reading groups. But more fundamentally, we make it a core responsibility of every team member to do what they can to help the rest of the team improve. Aptitude for this responsibility is something we are especially focused on when hiring.
