Who We're Looking For

At Faculty, your attitude and behaviour are just as important as your technical skill. We look for individuals who can support our values, foster our culture, and deliver for our organisation.

We like people who combine expertise and ambition with optimism -- who are interested in changing the world for the better -- and have the drive and intelligence to make it happen. If you’re the right candidate for us, you probably:

  • Think scientifically, even if you’re not a scientist - you test assumptions, seek evidence and are always looking for opportunities to improve the way we do things
  • Love finding new ways to solve old problems - when it comes to your work and your professional development, you don’t believe in ‘good enough’. You always seek new ways to solve old challenges
  • Are pragmatic and outcome-focused - you know how to balance the big picture with the little details and know a great idea is useless if it can’t be executed in the real world
  • Have experience in working directly with clients and end users to conduct: Requirements Gathering, Technical Planning and Scoping
  • Have a drive to learn new technologies and novel applications of existing technologies
  • Technical mentoring

To succeed in this role, you'll need demonstrable experience in the following:

  • Building scalable, maintainable, and tested web applications in React
  • ES6 JavaScript, HTML, CSS3, or related web technologies
  • Experience writing TypeScript or other typed languages
  • Experience building backend APIs with Node JS
