About the role
We're seeking a visually-oriented frontend developer – bringing a strong sense of information design plus the technical ability to implement those designs into our products and services.
You'll be joining an established team of experienced technical staff in a platforms team, as part of a business that is privately-held, financially stable, and achieving significant growth.
You'll be spending your time:
- Reviewing and renovating existing user interfaces across our products and services with a view to driving higher end user engagement rates
- Designing and implementing new user interfaces and user interface components across our energy analytics platforms
- Rapidly prototyping and conducting internal and external user testing of new visual concepts
- Working in a devops/agile/sprint based environment in a cross-functional team led by an industry veteran
- Contributing to a range of innovation/platform projects from a user experience and information design perspective.
Benefits and perks
We offer a range of benefits including:
- tools of trade (laptop + mobile/mobile service)
- modern and convenient Sydney CBD office (located close to Town Hall or Museum and with end of trip facilities)
- flexible and remote working options
- quarterly team/social events and an annual team retreat
- annual performance and remuneration review
- career development and growth opportunities including an annual learning and development allowance
- employee share scheme.
Skills and experience
From a technical perspective, you'll likely have:
- A degree in a relevant field (e.g. human-computer interaction, user experience, data analysis, computer science, information systems) or a combination of industry training and practical experience
- Implementation (not just design) experience in building responsive user interfaces for a wide range of devices and browsers
- Understanding of front-end architectures, and the performance-design constraints of building large-scale single-page web applications and interactive data visualisation services
- Specific experience in the presentation and analysis of time series data in particular (you might even have a portfolio for us to review!)
- Exposure to, or experience with data analytics and information visualisation as a service, for example through AWS Quicksight or GCP Data Studio, or a visualisation-oriented analytics technology such as Tableau, Qlikview or Sisense
- Any experience working with Python, plotly.js and Dash is a bonus
- Any experience working with mobile device digital experience delivery is a bonus
At a personal level you'll bring:
- A strong (some might even say compelling) sense of information design – you're likely familiar with the work of Tufte and/or McCandless as cataloguers and ethnographers of infographics and visualisation
- Curiosity regarding how people interact with, interpret and act on quantitative information, particularly in the context of energy analytics
- Excellent communication (written/spoken) and interpersonal skills, including when working with remote team members and with clients
- The desire to develop your technical skills and career and willingness to take on additional responsibilities to help us grow
- An appreciation of our company culture and values – see https://www.buildingsalive.com/about/work-with-us/
