Octopus Deploy is one of Australia’s fastest-growing software companies (and we’re taking on the world). After bootstrapping for a decade, in 2021, we quietly raised Australia’s second-largest ever venture capital raise, accepting a USD 172M minority investment from Insight Partners.
We’re seeking an ambitious and experienced web developer to join our team. You will take our design outputs for page templates and components and translate them into a world-class experience on our website. You will work closely with our website manager on the future direction of the tech stack behind our web properties and lead web development efforts across them. This role is pivotal to the success of our online efforts. We have aggressive growth targets, and a high-performing website is essential to meet our lead generation and brand awareness objectives.
The foundational skills for this position will revolve around HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The successful applicant for this position will be required to maintain and continue to build on our existing front-end stack (ASP.NET C# Razor), then lead the transition to a new rendering front-end (modern JavaScript framework, potentially Astro) in the future.
Salary Expectations: £50,000.00- £60,000.00 +stock options
