You are energised by creating complex platforms and wake up excited to help build a next-generation platform that will have a genuine impact in the world. You are a talented and ambitious engineer who will be instrumental in growing and developing a stack that will enable our next growth phase. You want to join a team of passionate people, with a shared goal of delivering ambitious milestones internationally, rooted in making a positive impact on people's lives.
We are looking for someone with strong backend development experience who has spent several years in a senior role, leading teams and working with senior leaders. Bonus if you have been the first or second person at a growing, mid-size organisation. We realise no one person is likely to embody all of the characteristics, but we expect many of them to align with your current abilities, and we expect that you are eager to grow and develop your capabilities across these areas.
To be successful, we expect you are:
Mission-motivated. You are excited to be a part of something meaningful that is bigger than the organisation and maximises the impact of financial contributions to improve global health and human wellbeing. You desire to work with other genuinely kind, mission-driven people.
An experienced professional. You have successfully built complex backend programs in a staff-driven organisation with extremely high expectations. You deeply understand the nuts and bolts of designing highly effective products and platforms of the highest quality and efficiency.
A critical thinker and excellent communicator. You are thoughtful and analytical, utilising qualitative and quantitative information, testing assumptions, and balancing business and moral imperatives. Not much escapes your attention, including the fine print. You communicate proactively and productively in both oral and written exchanges and convince others to pursue actions via clear, informed, and actionable advice.
Collaborative. You have the ability to partner with all levels of the organisation and work through others to drive impact and achieve results. People are eager to work with you and you can lead or consult as the situation demands. You share feedback with and seek feedback from others constructively.
Responsible for your results. You strive for excellence in yourself and the people around you. You keep an eye on the fundamental goal of a project and use your judgement and discretion to prioritise your work effectively. We don’t expect perfection, but when you make mistakes, you embrace them as a means to spark improvement and growth.
Industrious, creative, and good humoured. You are resilient and adaptable. You enjoy and are adept at implementing bespoke and scalable solutions to critical challenges—find a way or make a way—and are not afraid to challenge the status quo. You bring a positive attitude to the table.
