TRABAJAR EN BELLROY
Senior Technical Lead

IN A NUTSHELL

Bellroy’s technology team is searching for a Senior Technology Lead to help us not just to ship features but to ship features from a codebase that’s better than it was last time we shipped a feature - and do this every time we ship a feature. Our Senior Technology Lead will help us use the programming languages we work in every day as they should be used, not as they can be used. Yes, to ship features (we’re not a language research lab and we’re not afraid of a slightly inelegant hack that gets the job done without polluting the codebase) but to be able to look back and see that we used the right abstractions, that our architecture served our business needs, that we didn’t brute force what we could have finessed. To achieve this end we need someone to manage our technical review process and shepherd our code quality within one of our four-person development teams. And, be jointly responsible for the enterprise architecture strategy of the whole technology team.

At some companies we observe a familiar and depressing pattern: the most technically excellent developers hit a ceiling beyond which they can’t progress unless they start taking on direct “reports”, and becoming “managers”. Given no other options they launch themselves down this path. As they progress they spend less and less time doing the thing that they love (crafting excellent code) while they learn a completely different craft — management — and spend more and more time dealing with people and their problems. At Bellroy we love the people who want to make that transition, but we don’t think that it should be the only way to progress your career, and we make sure that we have a technical stream that allows people to keep getting better at programming. This is a role in that technical stream.

The majority of our current codebases are in pure Ruby or Ruby on Rails, so you must have at least a working understanding of these technologies. We use React and Elm in the front-end, and we’re starting to move more toward the latter. We're striving for a headless e-commerce model and re-assessing our technical stack. You will have opportunities to learn and master new programming languages and frameworks (we’re excited about Haskell, Go and Rust, among others).

A quick note: We’re currently advertising a number of roles, so if this one doesn’t quite tick all of your boxes, check out our Senior Team Lead and Back-end Developer roles. IIf your ideal job is some combination of the advertised roles, apply anyway. As part of your application, tell us what you’re really looking for.


YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF…

  • Have a solid technical background in Ruby on Rails, but recognise that it has limitations
  • Consistently deliver high quality code with strong, well-researched design principles
  • Want a key role in technology selection and architecture, and don’t see people management as the right way to progress in your career
  • Care more about tabs vs spaces than Scrum vs Kanban
  • Get excited about great books and the ideas you can steal from them – technical and non-technical books alike
  • Think a workplace with dogs, coffee, breakout spaces and casual dresscode sounds like a great place to be
  • Want to work for a company that cares about doing good things for the world

YOU PROBABLY AREN’T THE ONE, IF YOU...

  • Think that being a manager of other people is the definition of “successful”
  • Work just to pay the bills, no matter who is paying you

APÚNTATE PARA RECIBIR LAS OFERTAS DE EMPLEO DE BELLROY

Nuestras oficinas

'Bellroy' es una fusión de nuestras dos casa: Bells Beach y Fitzroy. Bells Beach es el toque relajado y natural que le brinda equilibrio al estilo creativo y urbano de Fitzroy. La ciudad y el mar, la inspiración y la aventura. Juntos logran el equilibrio ideal.

Bells Beach

Nuestra sede en la playa está ubicada detrás de un acantilado que preside una de las costas australianas favoritas de los amantes del surf. Aquí se encuentra el laboratorio de creación en el que experimentan los diseñadores de producto, y nuestro departamento de ventas consume incalculables cantidades de espresso y de banda ancha en Skype. La vida aquí es más tranquila que la de nuestros vecinos urbanos de Fitzroy, y apreciamos el ambiente de concentración que fomenta. Si quieres salir a picar algo, hay una cafetería justo al lado, y nuestro surf break de las 11 am nos ayuda a despejar la mente con la brisa marina.

Fitzroy

Nuestra oficina en Fitzroy se encuentra sumergida en medio del hervidero creativo de Melbourne. Aquí es en donde nuestro equipo creativo, de marketing, informático y de operaciones desarrollan las campañas y se aseguran de que cada Bellroy le llegue correctamente a su destinatario. Nada más poner un pie fuera de la oficina te topas con calles llenas de vida (y el mejor ramen fuera de Tokio). También hay una piscina olímpica cerca para los que quieren darse un chapuzón a la hora de comer.

A distancia

Fuera de nuestras dos oficinas principales, tenemos a un equipo que trabaja a distancia, desde Australia occidental, Asia, Europa y EE. UU. El carácter global forma parte de la esencia de Bellroy, nos mantiene conectados, y nos permite entender la vida desde diferentes puntos de vista. Si dispones de acceso estable a internet, y de la disposición para formar parte de un equipo al que no verás cara a cara a diario, quizás te gustaría formar parte de nuestro equipo internacional en continuo crecimiento.
