What you'll be doing

Envato is split into four major groups, Customer, Content, Small Business and Platform. This exciting new role is within our Content Group. This group is responsible for looking after one of our most important assets, our community of creative sellers who earn a living through our sites, and also for making content available for customers on Envato Market and Envato Elements. Without content, there can be no customers, so the group work hand in hand with the Customer Group to build on Envato's continuing success.

Along with working at Australia's premier Ruby development company, you'll get to work with a fun and modern tech stack. Whether you're a passionate Ruby newbie (with experience as a developer) or you've worked at our scale before, we'd love to hear from you. 

On a day to day basis you will:

  • Write clean, well thought out and reliable code
  • Participate as a member of a small cross functional team containing members with different skills and experience
  • You'll work on big projects, small maintenance tasks, server management tasks and anything else that makes software our customers love
  • Take lots of responsibility for your work as most teams don't have analysts, testers or system administrators
  • Take part in our 24/7 on-call rotation supporting one of the biggest websites in the world


Essential Requirements

  • Be a nice person who cares about their work
  • Communicate well in person and in writing
  • Be a curious person committed to continual learning
  • Be capable of writing clean, well thought out, and reliable code
  • Be comfortable working on a project from the original fuzzy brief through development and deployment and beyond with minimal oversight required
  • Be comfortable in a Linux software development and deployment environment


Preferred Requirements

  • Have commercial Ruby on Rails experience
  • Have solid TDD/BDD experience
  • Have experience of other high volume/scale web apps
  • Contribute to Open Source projects
  • Past experience in other agile environments
  • Excellent Linux knowledge


What We've Got

A Great Team and Culture

  • Developers are responsible for features from inception through to them being in the hands of customers. The devs talk directly to our community and customers about what they're working on
  • We do continuous delivery properly: any team member can deploy, and we regularly do several deploys a day
  • We publish portions of our code as open source, and contribute back to open source projects we use
  • fantastic culture of creatively minded, hard working people who are passionate about Envato and being part of its growth and success
  • Flexible working conditions – we want you to love your work but also your life outside of Envato
  • We actively work on creating a safe, inclusive environment free from discrimination
  • In addition to hiring for our Melbourne CBD office, we will also consider applications from experienced Ruby Developers who would like to work remotely (Australia wide)
  • Future career progression will be available across the entire business - we're big on internal opportunities and professional growth!
