Ready for an exciting new opportunity?

Want to join a global team re-defining how organisations deliver digital platforms within customers such as Nike, Pepsi, Macquarie Bank, AMP, Virgin Australia, Heineken, Estee Lauder, and 21st Century Fox?

Currently living somewhere battling traffic and the high cost of living and thinking Hobart might be a nice spot to check out?

Who are we?

LiveTiles is an enterprise software start-up, born in Australia with offices in New York, Sydney, London, Washington State, and Hobart. We build the world’s only drag & drop Digital Experience Platform (DXP), enabling anyone in a company to be a creator. We provide our core product to the K-12 education sector free of charge.

We empower teams with the tools they need to make digital workplace visions into a reality.

We publicly listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in 2015.

Meet some of our team:

The Role

As a Developer focused on our back-end platforms, you will join the LiveTiles Hobart team as they create, maintain and continue to expand our product ecosystem, working with other global offices across other time zones and disciplines.

You will be part of an exciting new chapter in our product ecosystem building on top of Microsoft’s AI platforms including the Azure Bot Framework and Cognitive Services.

You are someone with hands-on professional development experience under your belt, but looking for a big growth opportunity within a software product company.

What are we looking for in a LiveTiles employee?

A good employee focuses on the people using the tools we make: the quality of their experience, and the impact of what they build. 

They give direct feedback to their colleagues, and communicates consistency and deliberately with respect. 

They look for the simplest solution possible to problems.

What are we looking for in a Developer?

A good developer thinks about the complete software lifecycle, long-term technical debt, and shares their work with the next wave of developers, not just checking items off their backlog.

She makes reversible, “bit-sized” decisions when working in code, using design patterns to make extensible choices in her coding, and thoughtfully uses source control to maximize parallel efforts.

She takes maximum responsibility for her time and amplifies the productivity of those around them.

She values “working” and “maintainable” over “perfect” and never lets broken stay broken - in code or in process.

She is flexible in her decision making and cautious in her time commitments.

She is part of a team and recognises the importance of working with all disciplines and roles.
