Junior Software Engineer

Melbourne, Australia


Genero is solving one of the biggest challenges in the marketing and advertising industry, providing a solution to power the creative arm of in-house marketing teams and an agile production model for agencies.

Combining the world’s largest professional creative network with a software platform and streamlined end-to-end workflow, Genero delivers a creative and production process unparalleled in its speed, cost, quality and efficiency.

The role

At Genero, we use a modern tech stack; our front-end application is written in React, and powered by a Node.js microservice architecture, with GraphQL tying it all together. We’re looking at hiring proactive engineers to help us continue to build and improve all aspects of our product. If you appreciate clean, well-thought-out code, then read on to learn more.

As part of our development team, you’ll be working closely with our design and product team to develop innovative and world-class tools for brands looking for a more creative and agile approach to video content production.

We’re a small engineering team with a large emphasis on owning our infrastructure and codebase. We treat DevOps as a team problem – we are all constantly involved in improving the developer experience for each other. While this will predominantly be a front-end role, experience with and/or a desire to learn back-end development will be highly regarded.

On a day to day basis, you will

  • Contribute ideas to help build and improve all areas of our technology stack
  • Work with design and product teams, to build and support our platform
  • Work in a team to solve challenging problems
  • Write clean, tested, performant, and reusable code
  • Debug, monitor and analyse software running in production, helping to keep all our systems healthy

Required skills and experience

  • Experience with React, Vue, Angular or a similar Javascript framework
  • An understanding of server-side languages, particularly Node.js
  • Strong front-end skills, with the ability to deliver mobile, responsive, and accessible designs
  • An eagerness to learn new languages, frameworks, and tools
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

Knowledge or experience in the following would be a bonus

  • GraphQL and Apollo (client and server)
  • TypeScript
  • Testing tools such as Jest, ‘React Testing Library’ and Cypress
  • Cloud platforms – we use Google Cloud Platform but experience with any is a plus
  • Containerisation tools including Kubernetes, Helm and Docker
  • SQL and NoSQL databases, including MySQL and Firestore
  • CI/CD and build tools like CircleCI
  • Package management and bundling tools including Webpack
  • Comfortable working with a Unix like environment

You should be a proactive, results-driven engineer with an eye for detail. You will be constantly challenging your skills and improving your craft as a software engineer.

Applicants must have full rights to work in Australia. The role is based in Melbourne at our head office (although working from home until further notice). Going forward, the team will continue to work from home, with 2-3 days in the office.

Please include a cover letter along with your resume when applying.
