We are a responsible bunch of humans who love helping each other out and share a penchant for learning, both personally and professionally. We love our customers (some would say a tad obsessed) and we love making your day.
Keen to put your smart part to work? You’ll need to be an Australian Citizen or Permanent resident based out of Sydney to apply.
About the job
As a Senior Frontend Developer, you’ll get to work on a variety of projects within our Wisr ecosystem, including migrating our bespoke internal systems from AngularJS to React while expanding our newly created Design System, of which you’ll be a key contributor.
Wisr is growing and there are both current systems to maintain, re-architect and expand (Including redesigning core parts of our main application), and new applications to be developed.
Some common activities in this role include
- Coaching junior and mid level engineers
- Working alongside other senior and lead engineers
- Working closely with your team to deliver user stories, ensuring they are well understood beforehand
- Sitting down with users to understand how are they using the product your team is building

You are highly experienced in developing robust and fast React applications, putting great care into giving users the best experience possible. With a solid knowledge of RESTful APIs best practices, you are acquainted with all phases of the SDLC and have a passion for writing clean and maintainable code and testing it. You understand the value of automation and you’ll actively look to enrich our CICD pipeline to deliver high-quality work in a sustainable way.
While not required, if pursuing a full-stack role, we use .NET for all our backend development, and we are happy to train you.
Wisr is hosted on Azure, so experience with it will be beneficial.
