We're REA

An Australian start-up success story we're quietly proud of.

From a garage in Melbourne to the global stage is an achievement we're humbled by. Our idea to put pictures of houses on the internet has blossomed since 1995, and we now have businesses across Australia, India and North America.

Our purpose is to change the way the world experiences property. No matter where you're at on your property journey, we're here to help on every step - whether that's buying, selling, renting or renovating.

Some of our brands include realestate.com.au, realcommercial.com.au, Flatmates.com.au, Proptrack.com, Smartline.com.au and Mortgage Choice.

We're proud to be named in Australia's "Top 5" Best Workplaces two years in a row. This recognition is a great proof point of our unique and special culture. A culture that is driven by our people, our values, and our commitment to making a difference in the community.

What we’re doing
 

With us, you’ll experience Belonging. This role sits in the SPACE tribe within the Technology and Data Group.
 

The SPACE tribe within the Technology and Data Group is responsible for driving REA’s internal tooling, infrastructure, and making all delivery teams at REA more effective. We work on a wide range of technical products and solutions as required by other groups across the company, such as cloud deployment tools, CI/CD pipelines, networking, security, monitoring and deployment.
 

We’re looking for a Developer to join SPACE and support the team in building and maintaining products that help teams at REA be more productive.
 

The key accountabilities of the Developer role are:

  • Designing, coding, testing and deploying new software products using a variety of technologies and platforms

  • Sharing responsibility for all operational aspects of the software that we build, in support of our “you build it; you run it” philosophy where dev-ops is a part of everyday life.

  • Championing quality software delivery from inception and design to build and deployment, in collaboration with our Staff Developer

  • Following agile software development practices such as test-driven development, continuous delivery and pair programming.

  • Learning – we are constantly learning together, mentoring each other and striving to do things better

  • Working with product managers to understand business priorities and communicate technical options, report on progress and express ideas

Who we’re looking for
 

  • Developed skills in one or more mainstream programming languages and willingness to learn other languages

  • Experience with devops tools and techniques, particularly AWS and Docker

  • Experience with modern software development techniques such as test-driven development, microservice architecture and continuous delivery.

  • Able to be effective in a collaborative team environment

  • Excellent relationship building, negotiation and influencing skills

  • Ability to manage the competing demands of multiple projects in a timely manner

  • An appetite to work in a fast paced agile environment and to continually learn and improve


But we don’t just look for someone based on their skills and expertise.  It’s our connection, acceptance and genuine care for each other that makes REA a great place to work. That means you also need to be:
 

  • Savvy minded and have curiosity to think a little left of field / outside the box

  • A strong and creative communicator

  • Friendly, approachable and have good relationship management skills

  • An avid contributor to our inclusive culture - we celebrate different perspectives and all play an active role in creating a sense of belonging

The REA experience

We offer:

  • A flexible working environment, meaning we strike the balance of what you need and what works for the business (and yes, our leaders fully understand the benefits of working flexibly)

  • A hybrid approach to the future of work - https://rea.to/hybrid-working

  • Generous and flexible parental leave offering for primary and secondary carers

  • Summer Fridays – time back to focus on your wellness every Friday afternoon from December through to March

  • Support for your mental and physical health and wellbeing via our ‘You Matter’ Program

  • Hack Days for you to bring so you can bring your big ideas to life in a supportive learning environment

  • An additional day of leave just for your birthday

Oh, and by the way:

At REA we value diversity and inclusion in all forms. Gender, religion, ethnicity, LBTGIQ+, neurodiversity and so much more. Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks tend to only apply when they check every box. So if you've got the must-haves, dedication and enthusiasm to learn but don't necessarily meet every single point on the job description, please still get in touch. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.

If you like the sound of us, then we think you should apply today. We're proud to be Circle Back Initiative Employer and we commit to respond to every applicant. While we're looking at your application, and preparing to come back to you with an update, why not get to know us a bit more through our various social channels?
