Engineering roles with Redbubble in Melbourne

TITLE: Full time roles with Redbubble in Melbourne

Let’s start the right way:

Research has proven that men will apply for a job if they meet ~60% of the criteria. However, women and people from other untapped communities generally only apply when they meet 100%.

We don’t think that should be the case. So, if you’re concerned that you’re not ticking all the boxes, but think you may have some transferable skills that could help you ace the role, please just apply!

About Redbubble:

Redbubble was born in 2006 in Melbourne with a simple mission. Give independent artists a meaningful new way to sell their creations. In today’s uncertain world, we’re helping artists and designers across the planet to generate an income stream. Last year we paid over $100m in artist royalties.

Our teams work hard to make sure that Artists creations are discovered, purchased, appreciated and shared and with over 60m items that’s no small feat. So no matter what you do at the company, you can feel good knowing that you make it possible for creative people to connect with their customers through designs they love.

Engineering Culture:

The way we build software is a direct reflection of our engineering culture. Our engineering culture is centered around empowerment, ownership, and excellence.

  • Engineers in our teams are empowered to make the best decisions possible, to support each other, to ask questions and manage their time efficiently.
  • The care and personal ownership engineers put into their code quality and documentation is something that we ask each individual to own .
  • Our systems are complex and carry a lot of interdependence. In order to run as intended, technical excellence is something we strive for from every team member.

The Teams & Role:

Core - The Core team is really like the engine of the platform that all the other systems connect with. In the words of James our engineering manager; “We focus on building shared capabilities that allow other teams to scale, whether it’s faster product launches or minimising impacts of product changes . Roles in our team are less about grabbing tickets off a wall and more about working with the internal stakeholders to ensure that the platform delivers what they need.”
