  • Interesting work – working in a fast-paced and ever-changing industry, new problems and exciting solutions are never too far away. There are always opportunities to learn new skills and broaden your horizons.
  • A sense of achievement – our teams own their software and when that awesome new feature ships to users and the positive feedback starts rolling in, you can feel proud of what you and your team created.
  • Whilst our high-performing teams have the autonomy to execute and deliver software to standards and processes defined by the team, the whole of engineering follows Agile principles and leverages Scrum where necessary to facilitate cross-organizational consistency and emphasize collaboration, flexibility, and continuous improvement.

We are solving an incredibly complex problem

You will put to work your knowledge of best-practice software development principles to build products encompassing global payroll, payments, compliance and benefits across 160 countries. This will involve:

  • Designing, developing, and implementing high-quality software applications to build our new platform’s architecture.

  • Extensive experience with Python development.
  • Possess a deep understanding of modern software engineering design and development principles

  • Flexible working: Work from anywhere in the world! We don’t care where or when you work, as long as the job gets done. We are genuinely as flexible as the work allows.
  • Development: Training, coaching, and an environment that promotes career ambition and progression.

  • Parental leave: For employees who have been with us for 12 months by their due date, we offer 6 months of fully paid parental leave for the primary caregiver, followed by statutory for your region.  Secondary caregivers who have been with us for 12 months are entitled to 8 weeks of fully paid parental leave.
  • Wellbeing: Mental health and wellbeing support and services through Plumm
  • Home office setup: It should go without saying that we will provide you with the equipment you need to work from home in the same way you would if you were in an office. We will provide you with the home office equipment you need to enable you to work effectively wherever you are, including covering internet costs.
  • Education: We believe in helping you maximise your potential to deliver maximum impact. Get access to books, courses, mentors and learning plans to help you be your best and do your best!
  • Additional benefits: We offer additional benefits that vary from region to region, such as medical, life insurance, pension/retirement funds and more – please ask your Talent Partner when you speak with us!

We believe remote working is a great equalizer and we practice what we preach. Inclusivity is fundamental to our mission and we are committed to conscious inclusion. We believe in the potential of everyone; regardless of race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
