The role

We're looking for a software engineer with React Native experience to join Dovetail. You'll initially be working on a large React Native project with several million monthly active users. You'll work on a combination of small optimisations and larger ongoing features as part of modernising the app while still delivering value to the business.

We need someone who can ship quality code while remaining mindful of performance, maintainability, and constant improvement of the codebase.

It's a unique opportunity to work on a large codebase with a growing team, on a React Native application that is used by millions.

We have a type...

The kind of people we like to work with:

  • Are highly curious. They believe in continuous improvement, learning and knowledge.
  • Are one part pedant, one part pragmatic, zero parts jerk.
  • Are crafty like a fine carpenter, not a fox.
  • Have a favourite emoji, and can throw a shaka 🤙

What's #dovelife like?

We're a distributed team, split across Australia and New Zealand. We have nice offices in Hyde Park, Sydney and Auckland CBD. But flexibility has always been a part of Dovetail, so many of our staff work one or two days a week from home.

The people on your team may not be co-located with you — because of this we value people who are self-motivated and comfortable working in an asynchronous and distributed team.

We value learning and growth. Part of that is the Dovetail library: expense any book and share it with the team when you're done. We take time to do things the right way and encourage sharing you to bring your personality and interests to work.

Ventures

Dovetail Ventures is an arm of the business where we found, invest in, or grow businesses. Working at Dovetail gives you ownership in current and future ventures. Several of our ventures have taken rounds of external funding and are in growth mode. So there's some real value there already.

And adventures

Since we're split across two countries, we like to get together face to face at least once a year as a company for a team retreat. Last year we went to Queenstown, New Zealand. Previous years we've gone to Indonesia and Costa Rica. We're still figuring out what to do with the whole "global pandemic" thing and retreats, but we'll sort something...
