CAREERS AT BELLROY
Senior Team Lead – Technology

IN A NUTSHELL

Bellroy’s technology team is growing and we need a Senior Team Lead to manage the development of a small number of web developers at differing experience levels. You will coach them towards their growth goals, and oversee their deliverables in our agile environment.

You will be needed to write software as part of this role, but your principal function is to manage people. You will be responsible for managing a team of developers and their professional development, but not technical reviews, code quality or our enterprise architecture strategy – we have technical leads for that. We need enough technical leaders to build an innovative yet stable platform. And enough people leaders to help the team learn and grow. Both responsibilities are respected equally. So, if you have the technical knowledge paired with the people skills, then this could be the role for you.

We built most of our systems in Ruby and Rails, so you must have at least a working understanding of those 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.


YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF…

  • Have a solid technical background in Ruby on Rails, but recognise that it has its limitations
  • Get excited about great books and the ideas you can steal from them – technical and non-technical books alike
  • Understand and can argue the pros and cons of different agile methodologies
  • Have experience with and enjoy empowering other developers
  • 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

YOU PROBABLY AREN’T THE ONE, IF...

  • Prefer working on your own, and staying away from face-to-face conversations
  • Care more about tabs vs spaces than Scrum vs Kanban
  • Are looking for a key role in technology selection and architecture
  • Think a workplace with dogs, coffee, breakout spaces and casual dresscode sounds unappealing
  • Work just to pay the bills, no matter who is paying you

WHY WORK FOR BELLROY?

We built a culture on radical effectiveness. Our credo is "smart people with good intentions who get shit done" (yes, really). We have an awesome workplace in the heart of Fitzroy with free snacks and coffee (and a smaller one in Bells Beach). And we care so much about our people that we have a Head of Staff Flourishing (you’ll meet her in the interview).

Bellroy’s mission is to inspire better ways to carry; use business as a force for good; and help the world – and our crew – flourish. We make great products that delight people in their everyday lives. We help our staff love their work and grow as people. We donate a portion of our revenue to some of the world’s most effective charities. We are constantly looking for better ways to do… well, everything. Want to help us?

Our Spaces

'Bellroy' is a fusion of our two homes – Bells Beach and Fitzroy. Bells Beach brings a relaxed, outdoor vibe to balance Fitzroy's creative, urban style. The city and the sea; inspiration and adventure. Together they provide a perfect balance.

Bells Beach

Our beach HQ sits behind giant sandstone cliffs that overlook one of Australia’s best-known surfing coastlines. It’s where our Product Designers experiment in the Maker Lab, and our Sales team consume awesome amounts of espresso and Skype bandwidth. Things are more tranquil here than our Fitzroy neighbours and we like the focus that can create. There’s a cafe right next door if you need a quick bite and our 11am surf check always provides the perfect chance to reset the mind with some salt air.

Fitzroy

Our Fitzroy space is immersed in the middle of Melbourne’s creative hub. It’s where our Creative, Marketing, Engineering and Operations teams develop campaigns and ensure each Bellroy is sent safely across the world. Walk out the door and you’ll find streets bursting with energy (and the best ramen joint this side of Tokyo). There’s also an olympic-size pool just around the corner for those in need of a lunchtime refresh.

Remotely

Outside of our two main headquarters we have a team that works remotely - from Western Australia to parts of Asia, the USA and Europe. Being global is at the heart of Bellroy, it keeps us connected, and makes sure we see life from many different perspectives. If you have an internet connection and the flexibility to become part of a team you don’t see everyday, you might consider joining our growing global network.

Our Team

It takes a diverse crew to make Bellroy tick. We’re a collection of thinkers and makers, coming from over 25 different countries (and counting). Everyone has a unique set of skills, which all blend to achieve a clear vision – Inspire better ways to carry; use business as a force for good; help the world, and our crew, flourish.
