Job Description

About the opportunity

You’ll join Xplor Education and our Engineering team — the team that provides the support and expertise educators need to manage their centres smoothly, improve parent engagement, and deliver the best educational experience, so that they can focus on what really matters - helping children succeed.

Reporting to one of our Tech Leads, you’ll help us develop our product that allows education services to automate administration, streamline their financials and reporting, digitise attendance and bookings, record learning observations, and communicate with parents in real-time.

About the team

You'll be joining one of our Elixir teams as a Fullstack developer working on Elixir + Phoenix APIs and well as React/Typescript front-ends. No Elixir experience required, we will train you completely in Elixir, you just need to bring the can learn attitude.

We operate in small and lean cross-functional teams with minimal overhead and freedom to make our own decisions in how we work and get things done day-to-day.

Some of the responsibilities you’ll have:

  • Work with the team to write code, participate in standups, be part of design, testing and code reviews.
  • Work on new features as well as maintaining and improving our existing products. You'll be expected to own features from conception through to delivery and support.
  • Regular exposure to all aspects of the business.
  • Working with stakeholders outside of the engineering team.
  • Be part of a team with a shared goal - disrupting a market through technology and improving the future of education.


How do you know if you'll be right for the role?

  • A couple years of experience in delivering production-quality software, but we're not expecting you to be a pro in any single language
  • Decent grasp of OOP or FP fundamentals
  • No Elixir knowledge required (but bonus points if you do)
  • Familiar with JavaScript and Single Page Apps (we use React, but any experience will do)
  • Eager to learn and improve - you'll probably need to learn some new programming languages and tools with us, and that should excite you!
  • Likes solving problems
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Able to think beyond programming, e.g. product, customer and business
  • Familiar with relational databases and SQL (we use Postgres but any DB counts)
  • Bonus points for CI/CD, Docker, AWS, any of that DevOps goodness
