We will be closing this position as soon as we find the right candidate for the role. Apply ASAP!


KIS stands for keep it simple, so let's keep things simple:

We're an education and tutoring company that's a healthy mix of cool tech + cool people

Our mission is to provide every student with an amazing, personalised education experience

We envision a world where one day technology and genuine human connection can facilitate a unique education for every student across the world

We're made for students, by students (so you'd better love students)

We're all about delighting our customers (and hopefully you are too)

We're looking for an enthusiastic addition to our small and tight-knit team who loves or is super curious about startups.

We're in a growth phase and are ready to scale our operations up to help more students across Australia with best-in-class online and private tutoring.

Our Junior Dev will work with Dylan (The KIS Academics CTO) to expand our technological backend that allows for the smooth and seamless customer experience. You'll have a lot of independence building new and impactful features that will make a real difference for our customers

In this role you'll become 💪

Let's be real - anyone with a head on their shoulders should want a role where they'll learn and grow. In this role you'll become...

➡️ A master at designing, developing and maintaining complex, scalable software

➡️ A customer focused product manager with the ability to determine exactly what a customer needs, build a roadmap and then build a plan to implement features you believe will greatly impact the business

➡️ A startup ready innovator who knows how creatively use and build technology to solve problems

➡️ A genius at organising and planning your own calendar and staying productive

➡️ A confident and articulate communicator with a ton of empathy

➡️ A team player who generates ideas and takes action on their own ideas and the ideas of others

Qualifications required:

While we aren't looking for an industry veteran, we are looking for someone who is currently studying or working in computer science/software engineering, and has some experience with web development. You should be:

➡️ A fast learner who likes to keep up to date with the newest technologies

➡️ A full stack developer who loves Typescript

➡️ Experienced in building frontends with Vue (or similar)

➡️ Confidently able to build APIs with Node.js

➡️ GraphQL experience is preferred

➡️ An analytics lover who thrives off interpreting data

➡️ A business problem solver who can create tech solutions for real-life problems

➡️ A designer with a keen eye for aesthetics and enjoys building beatiful user experiences

What you'll get out of this role:

➡️ By far the biggest benefit of this role is how much you'll learn (this will be worth more than any amount of money we could ever pay you!)

➡️ A real and growing development team and budget

➡️ You'll have a lot of flexibility to choose your own hours and work when it suits you

➡️ Some bloody great team members (if we don't say so ourselves)

➡️ A lot of independence and responsibility, you'll really be driving the growth of the company

➡️ Amazing startup experience

➡️ Flexible work from home, but a team who loves to catch up for Friday night drinks (restrictions allowing!)

➡️ Fun

➡️ Hours and Pay: We're looking for the best candidate we can find for the role, and are flexible on the hours you'll work and pay structure. We're open to discuss when we meet for an interview!
