Job Description

SEEK has evolved from being a domestic online employment classifieds business, to the largest global online marketplace, operating in 19 countries. Our reach includes Australia, New Zealand, China, Brazil, Mexico, South East Asia, Southern Africa, India and Bangladesh.

Formed from the recent merger of the two leading portals in the region, Jobstreet and JobsDB, SEEK’s Asian operation now employs 1,500 people throughout the region. With continued ambitious growth plans, SEEK Asia is focused on attracting world class talent across its organisation.

SEEK Asia’s strategy is to match more candidates to opportunities than anyone else in Asia through using its marketplace scale to build a radically more efficient and effective marketplace.

A cornerstone of SEEK’s growth since its inception has been the quality of its people, its award winning culture and strong commitment to its values. This will continue to be at the core of ongoing success and growth.

Come join one of SEEK’s most exciting teams as a Senior Backend Developer and help deliver a better experience to job seekers across the Asia Pacific region! With your mix of hard-won wisdom and enthusiasm for growth and learning, become one of our champions putting an ever-better web application at the fingertips of our millions of users. We’re looking forward to your help across our team and throughout our stack, but most of all at the tangible point where design, code and data meet to make the place where people find their next job.

The role:

  • Address the possible challenges in continuous deployment environment and turn it into opportunity
  • Work with team members and stakeholders across multiple countries, both in person and remotely (You’ll spend a lot of time in video calls and a bit of time on planes)

Infrastructure and Pipeline as Code, DevSecOps, DataDog, AWS, GraphQL, Node and various ReactJS goodies
