Full time

Please note that REA Group has a company-wide shut down from Friday 23 December 2022 through to Tuesday 3 January 2023. Don't worry if there is a delay in hearing back from us - we're off enjoying the festive season and will respond in the new year.

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,,,, 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. You’ll be part of our Web Platform Squad within the Experience Engine Tribe who pride themselves in high quality delivery, cutting edge and sustainable code, and are advocates for key aspects of building modern web experiences like responsive layout, accessibility, and performance.

While no two days are ever the same, you’ll be doing:

  • Designing, coding, testing, and deploying new web-based products and services, with high quality experience for users

  • Maintaining existing web-based products and services, including bug fixes and "Business As Usual" feature enhancements

  • Working with stakeholders to design high quality solutions that meet the needs of our users.

  • Supporting production web-based products and services

Who we’re looking for:

  • Proven skills in core web development technologies such as JavaScript, HMTL, CSS

  • Proven skills in modern web application frameworks (eg. React), libraries, and design patterns.

  • Proven skills in the design of high-performance dynamic web-based products and services that scale to millions of users.

  • Proven skills in modern software development paradigms such as object orientation and/or functional programming and continuous delivery.

  • Able to communicate and collaborate effectively with business stakeholders.

  • Looks at tricky situations through a solutions-focused lens.

  • Work productively in a fast paced and agile environment.

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

The physical, mental, emotional and financial health of our people is something we’ll never stop caring about. This is a place to learn and grow. We’re committed to your development – both professionally and personally. Your experience with us is something we take seriously.

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 -

  • 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

  • Because We Care program which includes volunteer leave and community grants, to ensure you have the opportunity to give back to your community

  • 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?
