  • You identified and started to run "easy-win" projects that uplift our front-end development capability.
  • You can contribute to architectural decisions across the codebase through both experience and asking for assistance.
  • You are mentoring other PaperCutters and uplift the broader PaperCut ecosystem by facilitating and driving education on essential knowledge areas.

What else you can expect from us...

  • We're a people-first type of place and we're led by our values in everything we do - Caring, Honest, Intelligent and Nimble (CHIN).

  • When in the office, you can enjoy free parking, unlimited coffee from our in-house espresso machine and drink it in alongside an outstanding view of the city from our outdoor deck.
