About the role

We are looking for a Full Stack Software Engineer (mid level) to join our team in Melbourne. As a Software Engineer, you’ll work within our cross-functional product engineering teams on a wide variety of projects across customer acquisition, engagement, conversion, data coverage and content.

An opportunity to work with an engaged cross-functional team that is passionate about building on our product strategy and prioritising user focussed initiatives.
