Job Description

Take a seat on the Xplor rocket ship and join us on our mission to change education around the world. We’re a rapidly growing startup and are looking for a Senior Full Stack Developer to help us build technology that makes a difference in the lives of children and families.

What is Xplor?

Our software has revolutionised the day to day operations of childcare centres. By automating administration we make it possible for teachers, educators and parents to focus on a child’s education.

We are a Series B funded, fast growing startup with over 60 employees currently based in Melbourne, Australia and expanding into the UK in 2019 as we continue on our journey to make education great around the world.

My impact as a Full Stack Developer

Our product allows education services to automate administration, streamline their financials and reporting, digitise attendance and bookings, record learning observations, and communicate with parents in real time. As a Full Stack Developer, you will get to:

  • Work with your dedicated team to ensure projects are delivered on time, and to best practice & quality guidelines
  • Be an integral, key part of the team by mentoring and sharing your knowledge with your team members
  • Guide the design, development and maintenance of applications and web services for use in the Xplor platform
  • Participate in the entire application lifecycle right from concept to delivery as well as post launch support
  • Heavily involved in design, testing and code review
  • Regular exposure to business stakeholders and executive management, as well as the authority and scope to apply expertise to many interesting technical problems
  • Be a part of a team with a shared goal - disrupting a market through technology and improving the future of education


Talents you bring to the role

  • Senior level skills in developing applications and web services using languages such as Elixir, Ruby, or Javascript, and an existing understanding of Functional Programming is a plus
  • A genuine interest in learning Elixir and/or React is a plus as you'll be working across our full stack
  • Experience writing and managing test suite, code management and CI, and excellent debugging and optimisation skills
  • Able to take a proactive, hands on, and collaborative approach in all sprints and tasks
  • Able to show awareness of your own strengths and areas for growth, with a desire to develop and apply new skills
  • Motivated by a fast paced, high pressure environment where you will have to constantly adapt - no two days are the same, seriously!
  • Our core values hit home for you: Be Humble, Obsess Over Customers, Think Deeply Move Quickly, and Embrace Change


What it means to work on the Xplor rocket

We offer competitive benefits, though lots of companies offer those, too. What else we offer is more rare: To be a part of redefining the education sector and a chance to make a real impact every day you come to work.

Some of those benefits we mentioned:

  • Unparalleled opportunities to learn, with accelerated career development for high performers
  • You will be given autonomy, flexibility, trust and responsibility as you help shape the future of the business with us
  • Spend your days in an open plan warehouse style office with music, a gong, and nearly always a sugary treat nearby
  • 10 weeks Gender Neutral Paid Parental Leave benefit
  • Discounts to study an MBA in Innovation and Leadership
  • Plenty of rocket-related puns, of course!

Sheryl Sandberg once said, “If you're offered a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask what seat! Just get on.” We couldn't agree more. So, are you ready to get on board?
