Job description: At Qantas Hotels, our teams come together to create new and unique customer experiencesFull time, permanent opportunity based with a hybrid model of WFH and at our Melbourne (Collingwood) or Sydney (Mascot) officesStaff travel benefit from day one!At Qantas Hotels we believe that true creativity comes from a diverse group of people working together in a psychologically safe space to reach a shared objective. We’re cross-functional Product Teams, focused on data and employing modern agile and lean practices to provide the best customer experience.We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer – Back End to join a medium-sized team of Clojure Software Engineers who own a number of backend services for Qantas’ hotels and holidays offerings; our business line has seen much success and strong positive leadership which presents opportunities for lots of interesting work – hence why we’d like to grow our team.Our team is one of a number of Engineering teams who focus on hotels and holidays offerings under the Qantas and Jetstar brands, and we’re part of the Qantas Loyalty business line within the Qantas Group.We love Clojure, but don’t let that deter you if you haven’t used it before – in practice what that means is we care about how software is designed and built. Our team has a range of experience in Clojure – from “new-ish to the language”, to “used it for ages”. We’d like to hear from you wherever you fit – even if you just have a “strong desire to learn” Clojure or perhaps have used other functional languages.In our experience, for software engineers who care about software ergonomics, Clojure is relatively easy to pick up and once they start with it, they don’t want to use anything else. By the same token, we recognise it’s not a language many companies use in our region and we’d like to help grow the community of software engineers working in Clojure.We strive to be a high performing team with high levels of trust and autonomy and we support each other to get things done, as well as making sure any chores are actioned in a reasonable timeframe (so we can all work on more interesting things). We often practise pair coding, and we regularly work together to learn from each other, as well as providing mentoring and other support to our junior engineers.Our responsibilities cover third party integrations as well as high performance search backends, so there’s plenty of interesting high level engineering thinking we do and will need to continue doing. Some technologies our team has used include Python, Ruby, Java, Kotlin, Scala, Haskell, Elixir and Erlang.What you will ideally bring to the role:You’re looking for a Clojure centric roleIf you’re a Senior Software Engineer we expect you’ve had experience in and enjoy leading technical discussions and coaching less experienced team membersYou think you’d be a good fit for our business and team (see About Us above) and can articulate whyYou’re curious and can articulate the trade-offs of various approaches to building, deploying and maintaining software.You apply higher-order thinking to software engineering to identify common patterns.You’re technical but also good at working with non-technical colleagues for activities including discovery and domain modelling.You embrace constructive feedback, and can provide constructive feedback to your colleaguesYou care about the full functionality (security, reliability, maintainability, etc.) of the software you build or maintain, not just that it meets its functional specification.You have opinions about testing that you can articulate and advocate forYou recognise the importance of chores (but also strive to “automate all the things”)You display empathy and responsibility in your work environment and your workYou like learning new thingsYou’re familiar with at least one cloud platform and have experience with containerised applicationsQantas is an Equal Opportunity Employer, so by coming to work for us, you’ll be part of an organisation that encourages diversity, supports charities and environmental initiatives.
