Company Description

We're a team of researchers, designers, engineers, architects, innovators and change makers.

We help transform organisations by building design led, digital solutions. For 12+ years we have worked with some of Australia’s biggest brands, delivering innovative experiences on both mobile and the latest in emerging technology.

With offices in both Sydney and Melbourne, Bilue is driven by its mission to 'mobilise millions'. We strive for technical excellence, but we thrive on human connection. We support one another to challenge ourselves and our clients in the pursuit of continuous improvement. We’re welcoming, fun and we value the experience and knowledge of our mates.

Job Description

We are looking for talented Full Stack Software Engineers who are experienced in building applications to join our team of creators who are consistently raising the bar for our clients. Although we say full stack, we know unicorns rarely exist and engineers usually lean towards either front-end or back-end. We're open to either!

Front-end (mostly): You are proficient in front-end development but don’t shy away from contributing to API code or logging into the AWS Console to debug something.

Back-end (mostly): You are competent and passionate about levelling up your skills in back-end development and AWS, but you understand what the front-end is all about and can jump in to diagnose issues when they arise.

Regardless of which way you lean, ideally you will have a unique blend of technical expertise, insatiable curiosity, an analytical mindset and are comfortable with building and/or maintaining everything from user interfaces to databases. You will be comfortable working independently as well as collaboratively in the design and development of mission-critical websites, mobile applications and layers of the infrastructure.

  • We develop clean quality code that matches our client's vision.
  • We iterate constantly to get the best possible outcome for all parties.
  • We deploy products that add real value and that we are proud of.

  • Knowledge of writing infrastructure as code (IaC) using CloudFormation or Terraform
