CARRIERE DA BELLROY
Senior Technical Lead

IN A NUTSHELL

Bellroy’s technology team is searching for a Senior Technology Lead to help us not just to ship features but to ship features from a codebase that’s better than it was last time we shipped a feature - and do this every time we ship a feature. Our Senior Technology Lead will help us use the programming languages we work in every day as they should be used, not as they can be used. Yes, to ship features (we’re not a language research lab and we’re not afraid of a slightly inelegant hack that gets the job done without polluting the codebase) but to be able to look back and see that we used the right abstractions, that our architecture served our business needs, that we didn’t brute force what we could have finessed. To achieve this end we need someone to manage our technical review process and shepherd our code quality within one of our four-person development teams. And, be jointly responsible for the enterprise architecture strategy of the whole technology team.

At some companies we observe a familiar and depressing pattern: the most technically excellent developers hit a ceiling beyond which they can’t progress unless they start taking on direct “reports”, and becoming “managers”. Given no other options they launch themselves down this path. As they progress they spend less and less time doing the thing that they love (crafting excellent code) while they learn a completely different craft — management — and spend more and more time dealing with people and their problems. At Bellroy we love the people who want to make that transition, but we don’t think that it should be the only way to progress your career, and we make sure that we have a technical stream that allows people to keep getting better at programming. This is a role in that technical stream.

The majority of our current codebases are in pure Ruby or Ruby on Rails, so you must have at least a working understanding of these technologies. We use React and Elm in the front-end, and we’re starting to move more toward the latter. We're striving for a headless e-commerce model and re-assessing our technical stack. You will have opportunities to learn and master new programming languages and frameworks (we’re excited about Haskell, Go and Rust, among others).

A quick note: We’re currently advertising a number of roles, so if this one doesn’t quite tick all of your boxes, check out our Senior Team Lead and Back-end Developer roles. IIf your ideal job is some combination of the advertised roles, apply anyway. As part of your application, tell us what you’re really looking for.


YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF…

  • Have a solid technical background in Ruby on Rails, but recognise that it has limitations
  • Consistently deliver high quality code with strong, well-researched design principles
  • Want a key role in technology selection and architecture, and don’t see people management as the right way to progress in your career
  • Care more about tabs vs spaces than Scrum vs Kanban
  • Get excited about great books and the ideas you can steal from them – technical and non-technical books alike
  • Think a workplace with dogs, coffee, breakout spaces and casual dresscode sounds like a great place to be
  • Want to work for a company that cares about doing good things for the world

YOU PROBABLY AREN’T THE ONE, IF YOU...

  • Think that being a manager of other people is the definition of “successful”
  • Work just to pay the bills, no matter who is paying you

WHY WORK FOR BELLROY?

We have carefully built our culture on radical effectiveness. Our credo is "smart people with good intentions who get shit done" (yes, really). We have an awesome workplace in the heart of Fitzroy with free snacks and coffee (and a smaller workspace in Bells Beach).

Bellroy’s mission is to inspire better ways to carry; use business as a force for good; and help the world – and our crew – flourish. We make great carry products that delight people in their everyday lives. We help our staff love their work and grow as people. We donate a portion of our revenue to some of the world’s most effective charities. We are constantly looking for better ways to do… well, everything. Want to help us?

This can be a full-time role located in our Fitzroy office, or a full-time remote position from anywhere in the world. That’s up to you.

I nostri spazi

Bellroy è una fusione delle nostre due case - Bells Beach e Fitzroy. Bells Beach contribuisce con la sua atmosfera rilassata della vita all'aperto, per bilanciare lo stile urbano e creativo di Fitzroy. La città e il mare; ispirazione e avventura. Insieme creano un equilibrio perfetto.

Bells Beach

La nostra sede principale sulla spiaggia si trova dietro gigantesche scogliere di arenaria, che si affacciano su una delle coste australiane più famose per il surf. È qui che i nostri Product Designer fanno le prove nel Maker Lab e il nostro team di vendita consuma quantità impressionanti di caffè e traffico internet su Skype. Qui siamo più tranquilli rispetto ai nostri vicini a Fitzroy e ci piace la concentrazione che si viene a creare. Se hai bisogno di un boccone c'è un bar proprio qui accanto e alle 11:00 controlliamo sempre se ci sono le condizioni per fare surf, l'occasione perfetta per rinfrescare la mente con un po' di aria salina.

Fitzroy

I nostri locali di Fitzroy sono immersi nel cuore del centro creativo di Melbourne. È qui che i nostri team di creazione, di marketing, di ingegneria e di gestione operativa sviluppano campagne e si assicurano che ogni Bellroy venga spedito in modo sicuro in tutto il mondo. Appena fuori dalla porta troverai strade che scoppiano di energia (e il miglior negozio di ramen fuori da Tokyo). C'è anche una piscina olimpionica proprio dietro l'angolo, per chi ha bisogno di rinfrescarsi a mezzogiorno.

Da remoto

Al di fuori delle due nostre sedi principali, abbiamo una squadra che lavora a distanza - dall'Australia occidentale a parti dell'Asia, degli USA e dell'Europa. Essere globale è un caposaldo in Bellroy, ci tiene connessi e ci permette di vedere la vita da molte prospettive diverse. Se sei dotato di una connessione a Internet e della flessibilità di diventare parte di un team che non vedi tutti i giorni, potresti valutare di unirti alla nostra rete globale costantemente in crescita.
