KARRIERE BEI BELLROY
Developer (Haskell)

IN A NUTSHELL

Bellroy, an Australian accessories brand helping people carry better, has grown rapidly since its inception. We’re looking to magnify the capabilities of our technology teams to keep pace with that ongoing growth, while remaining Australia’s Best Place to Work. We’re not a software company, but software development is one of our core competencies. Technology underpins the success of our business. This means the Technology Team rarely works to hard delivery deadlines (we prioritise “correct” over “now”) and we regularly make open-source contributions.

We’re on the search for two Haskell developers to help us not just to ship features but to ship features from a codebase that’s better than it was last time we shipped a feature - and do this every time we ship a feature. We need you to help us use Haskell as it should be used, not merely as it can be used. Yes, to ship features (we’re not a language research lab and we’re not afraid of a slightly inelegant hack that gets the job done without polluting the codebase) but to be able to look back and see that we used the right tools and abstractions, that our architecture served our business needs, and that we didn’t brute force what we could have finessed.

You can expect to learn a lot while you’re here. We will support your development with an allocated learning budget, hack days, and company-wide learning events. The Technology Team also runs a book club that meets weekly . We’ve discussed books like Don’t Make Me Think and The Pragmatic Programmer, and worked through courses together as well.

Bring us your problem solving skills, quick wit and fast fingers. In return we’ll provide you with a culture of intellectual honesty, autonomy to do your work and the tools you need to get shit done.


YOU COULD BE THE ONE IF YOU…

  • Have at least 2-3 years experience with Haskell and functional programming
  • Strive to deliver high quality code with strong, well-researched design principles
  • Prefer mastering your craft over managing people (for now, but you’re welcome to change your mind about that in the future)
  • Want to join a highly competent technical team, supporting and supported by world-class professionals in product design, data science, logistics, production, sales, finance and customer support
  • Don’t work just to pay the bills, but also because you’re passionate about contributing to the team and the open source community
  • Get excited about great ideas, wherever they come from – books, blogs and podcasts, technical and non-technical
  • Want to work for a company that cares about doing good things for the world

WE’D GET REALLY EXCITED IF YOU…

  • Have experience wrangling Nix
  • Can read and understand Ruby on Rails code (we have a significant Ruby on Rails codebase that we’re migrating away from, and many of our Haskell services talk to Rails services)
  • Have operational AWS experience (Lambda, DynamoDB, etc)
  • Have built event-driven systems using Kafka
  • Can’t do any of that right now, but can learn really quickly

WHY WORK FOR BELLROY?

Bellroy’s mission is to inspire better ways to carry; use business as a force for good; and help the world – and our crew – flourish. We make great carry products that delight people in their everyday lives, while constantly innovating to improve the sustainability of our materials. We help our staff love their work and grow as people. We donate a portion of our revenue to some of the world’s most effective charities and are a certified B Corporation.

We have carefully built our culture on radical effectiveness. Our credo is "smart people with good intentions who get shit done" (yes, really). We help our staff love their work and grow as people. Internally, we’re proud of our workplace culture; externally, we’ve been recognised as Australia’s Best Place to Work 2021, in the "< 100 Employees" category. We have two awesome physical workspaces in Victoria, Australia - one in the heart of Melbourne’s Fitzroy, and a smaller space inBells Beach. Our remote team members are a critical part of our business, and are treated as such: prior to 2020, we would gather all our people together once or twice a year, and plan to do this again as soon as it’s practical and safe.

LOCATION AND HOURS

Fitzroy or remote, that’s up to you. We have people that work with and for Bellroy on every continent bar Antarctica. Our distributed team members are a critical part of our business, and are treated as such. We ask our remote people to overlap Melbourne office hours a few hours a day but other than that the hours that you work are totally up to you. We care about outcomes, not micromanagement.

The majority of our team is based in Australia and Europe. If you’re based in the Americas, the Oceania/European timing probably won’t work for you unless you’re willing to work odd hours (our existing team in the Americas work late nights a few days a week). If you’re located in or near Melbourne, we’re flexible about how much of your week is spent in our offices.

REMUNERATION

In a global company, remuneration is hard. We try our best to pay people fairly for their skills relative to their circumstances. You can expect the following benefits plus some other nice surprises:

  • a good, fair salary that means you don’t have to worry about money, as well as have room to be rewarded as you grow
  • help setting up your home office, both financially and technically
  • team training budget for courses, conferences and certifications
  • travel and accommodation to get together face-to-face with your colleagues twice a year (when practical and safe)

If you're expecting a FAANG-like compensation package we're sorry, but we'll likely disappoint you.

Eintrittstermin: We're ready when you are!

UNSERE MISSION

Wir finden neue Wege, um unbeschwerter unterwegs zu sein.
Wir nutzen unser Business als Antrieb für Gutes.
Wir helfen der Welt und unserem Team dabei, voranzukommen und aufzublühen.

Unsere Standorte

Der Name Bellroy ist eine Mischung aus unseren zwei Standorten – Bells Beach und Fitzroy. Bells Beach bringt relaxte Outdoor-Atmosphäre und schafft eine gute Abwechslung zum kreativ-urbanen Fitzroy. Die beiden Welten 'Metropole' und 'Ozean' ergänzen sich. Sie sind unsere Inspiration und unser Abenteuer.

Bells Beach

Unser Strand-Hauptquartier liegt direkt hinter einer gigantischen Sanddüne, welche eine der wohlbekanntesten Surfküsten Australiens überschaut. Hier experimentieren und konzipieren unsere Produktdesigner im Labor-Studio und das Vertriebsteam konsumiert eine erstaunliche Menge an Espresso und Skype Bandbreite ... Hier geht es beschaulicher zu als bei unserer Fitzroy Crew, und wir lieben diesen friedlichen Ort, um konzentriert entwerfen zu können. Nebenan ist ein Café für eine Stärkung, und unser tägliche 11 Uhr Surf-Check ist die Gelegenheit um Meerluft zu schnappen und aufzutanken.

Fitzroy

Unser Studio in Fitzroy liegt inmitten Melbournes kreativer Szene. Hier ist neben unserem Kreativ-, Marketing- und Ingenieur-Team unsere Geschäftsführung Zuhause. Hier werden Kampagnen kreiert und dafür gesorgt, dass unsere Bellroys sicher verschickt und auch überall auf der Welt gut ankommen. Unsere Nachbarschaft brummt nur so vor inspirierender Energie (und wir haben den besten Ramen Shop außerhalb Tokyos!). Wer eine Erfrischung in der Mittagspause braucht, kann in den 50 Meter Pool um die Ecke springen und ein paar Bahnen ziehen.

Ortsunabhängig arbeiten

Abgesehen von unseren beiden Haupt-Standorten haben wir ein weltweites Team, welches von West Australien, Teilen Asiens, den USA und Europa arbeitet. Der globale Gedanke ist das Herzstück von Bellroy, es hält uns zusammen und stellt sicher, dass wir das Leben von vielen Standpunkten aus betrachten können. Wenn du eine Internetverbindung hast und die Flexibilität Teil eines Teams zu werden, das du nicht jeden Tag siehst, kannst du dich unserem Netzwerk von Freelancern anschliessen.

Unser Team

Damit Bellroy erfolgreich sein kann, brauchen wir die Talente von einer Menge Leuten. Wir sind ein Kollektiv aus Denkern und Machern aus über 25 verschiedenen Ländern (und es werden womöglich mehr). Jeder hat eine einzigartige Kombination von Fähigkeiten, die alle einem klaren Leitsatz folgen – Better Ways to Carry (Besser unterwegs mit weniger Ballast). Nutze unser Unternehmen, dich für Gutes einzusetzen, indem du der Welt und unserem Team hilfst, sich zu entfalten und zu gedeihen.
