    IN A NUTSHELL

    Help us make better decisions by getting our (many) data pipelines flowing smoothly and sensibly into a well-architected warehouse. Bellroy loves to balance art with science; using data to inform and test our theories, and iterating towards Truth.

    We need your help to build, improve and maintain the infrastructure required to extract, transform, load and enrich data from a variety of sources. With your help we’ll be able to get the right info, infer useful things and make better decisions. Then test, and keep improving.

    When the warehouse is fully functional, you’ll lend your sharp logic to improve internal processes, automate systems, and optimise, well, everything. And down the track we’d love you to get involved with some Bayesian analysis, machine learning and other interesting data team projects.

    If you get excited by the idea of providing the right data to inform great decisions; and you want that data to be accessible, understandable and trustworthy, then this could be the job for you. If you bring your experience, smarts and detail-oriented brain to help us, we’ll offer a world-class team to learn from, the tools you need to do your thing, and the support you need to flourish.

    YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF…

    Your logic and reasoning is formidable, as is your determination. You are ordered and decisive, yet creative at the same time. You like things to end up fitting neatly in the boxes; but you don’t mind looking outside of them in the first place to find the answers. You get a kick out of getting things right, and you have the patience to do that every time. Because you present your work with pride, knowing you’ve done all you can to make sure it’s correct – and useful.

    Disorder makes you uncomfortable. With well ordered data in a clean schema, life is good. But you love a challenge more than most other things, so where you see inconsistency or confusion, you also see an opportunity. And you’ll follow that thread until you’re confident you’ve sorted it out.

    You might have been called a “bookworm” more than once in your life, because your curiosity has you forever seeking (and absorbing) information. And nowadays, this natural thirst for knowledge has you constantly looking at ways to improve, optimize and enhance – yourself, your processes, and your data. A bit like a mechanic will with a car, you’ll break apart the whole into pieces you can check and analyse, before rebuilding an idea, process or system into something better.

    Sound familiar? If so, we’d love to meet you (and that brain of yours).

    IF YOU WERE HERE IN THE FEW LAST WEEKS YOU MIGHT HAVE:

    • Reviewed our overall data systems (supported by very competent sysadmins) to make sure everything was in order and to look for larger scale improvements
    • Built out a handful of new pipelines to bring more of our core business data into our data warehouse
    • Chased a handful of data validation alerts raised by our pipelines, and taken the time to get to the root cause of each of them, then either delegated the fix to an appropriate someone else or fixed them yourself
    • Suggested an improvement to our A/B testing infrastructure
    • Worked outside of data team, with our developers, flexing your database and query optimisation skills to decide whether to fix a performance issue they’re having at the database level, or insist that the fix should be in the code (and, that’s fun - they’re an excellent bunch)
    • Provided an ad-hoc analysis (working with our analysts) to someone who requested it, integrating a one-off data source
    • Talked with our CIO about some of our mid-term plans, and how we’ll support them with data

    THESE ARE SOME QUALITIES YOU MUST POSSESS

    • At least three years experience in data-related roles
    • Advanced working knowledge of SQL and experience in ETL using a workflow management tool such as Apache Airflow
    • Experience with building and optimising data pipelines
    • Experience with collecting data from a variety of sources including APIs (good APIs, bad APIs, and ugly APIs)
    • Strong analytical skills and an ability to perform root cause analysis
    • Training in Computer Science, Statistics, Informatics, Information Systems or another relevant quantitative field (or demonstrable skill in one of those areas and the story of how you built that skill without formal training)
    • Very high precision – you need to know how to verify that your work is correct
    • Bonus points for more experience with relevant programming languages (ie. Ruby on RAILS, Python, R, Scala), PostgreSQL, project management and machine learning.
  • Bellroy

    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. If 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

    LOCATION AND HOURS

    This can be a full-time role located in our Fitzroy office, or a full-time remote position from anywhere in the world. That’s up to you.

    Start Day: We're ready when you are!

    IN A NUTSHELL

    Bellroy is a for-purpose, carry goods business that is growing at a rapid rate. Our technology team provide the tools and know-how to sustain and magnify that growth.

    We need a back-end developer to hone our fulfilment, analytics and data warehousing systems so we can continually improve the awesomeness of our customer experience. We’re transitioning to a headless e-commerce architecture to make our systems more maintainable, flexible and robust, and we’d like your help. You will play a key role in determining how Bellroy’s technical stack looks like in the future.

    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.

    You will initially work closely with our marketplace, logistics and data teams. You will grow an innovative yet stable platform and make critical decisions about where to use third party solutions and where to build our own. In the medium term, you will gain experience building and honing systems across all parts of our business. So, if you have strong technical skills, a growth mindset and the ability to get shit done, then this could be the job for you.

    Historically, we built most of our web applications in Ruby on Rails with PostgreSQL and Redis backends, so you must have at least a working understanding of that technology stack. But - we’re re-assessing our technical stack, so you will have opportunities to learn and master new programming languages and frameworks (we’re excited about, but not committed to, Haskell, Go and Rust, among others). We use the dry-rb family of gems to keep our Rails applications nice and clean.

    YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF YOU…

    • Have a solid technical background in Ruby on Rails, but recognise that it has limitations
    • Have a passion for understanding non-technical parts of the business and how they can leverage technology to boost their efficiency
    • Consistently deliver high quality code with strong, well-researched design principles
    • Want to have a voice in technology selection and architecture
    • 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; or prefer working from wherever you are (yes, that’s right, this role is open to remote folk too)
    • Want to work for a company that cares about doing good things for the world

    LOCATION AND HOURS

    This can be a full-time role located in our Fitzroy office, or a full-time remote position from anywhere in the world. That’s up to you.
