We are Zip, a rapidly expanding global fintech headquartered out of Sydney, Australia with a growing presence focused in the US and UK markets.

  • Ability to balance outcomes for customers, the team and the business
  • Flexibility, an open mind, curiosity and passion for learning
  • Ability to jump between empathizing with a customer problem and designing an engaging solution
  • Our values in your DNA: Customer First, Own It, Stronger Together and Change the Game

Your Skills & Experience:

  • Expert level experience in Kotlin and RESTful APIs
  • Solid experience with React, NextJS & Typescript
  • Solid experience on SQL and NoSQL storage solutions

  • Experience with Terraform, Newrelic and Kibana

Desirable Skills:

  • Experience in C#, .Net Core and/or NodeJS
  • Experience with GraphQL and Apollo Client
  • Experience in Angular 5+
  • Knowledge of payment gateways

We’re looking for someone who always finds new boundaries to cross - a future Zipster who will obsess over excellence and make constant improvements for our customers. We’ve removed the red tape here to get things done quickly, so if you see a problem, own the solution. You've gotta hustle at Zip!

If you only meet some of the requirements for this role, that's okay. We value a diverse range of backgrounds and ideas and believe this is fundamental for our future success. So, if you have the curiosity to learn and the willingness to teach what you know, we'd love to hear from you.

We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities to all persons regardless of their age, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, veteran status, or anything else.
