About this role
Lexer are looking for Full-Stack Developers to help build tomorrow’s data products for today’s businesses.
You’ve probably noticed, but businesses are having a really hard time putting their data to work. Lexer exists to solve exactly that.
Our Product Team are challenged by some of the most interesting data, engineering, and user experience problems you can face. From large scale data pipelines, to social media content consumption. From High-Performance Machine Learning to Data Visualisation. Oh, and did we mention managing the infrastructure required to process billions of analytics events each day?
But really, the biggest challenge is translating very complex data questions into a super-simple user interface that marketers and customer service teams can use… without any background in data.
Pro-tip: This is really hard!
So, our Product Team is looking to expand their development capability by welcoming bright Full-Stack individuals to help us solve tomorrow’s data problems today.
You’ll be working on building new products and features using React, a bit of Backbone, D3, WebSockets and lots of CSS. All backed by a Rails API and a much larger, internally built, data platform all in AWS.
We run a tight agile ship, take pride in our use of the latest and greatest technology and, clearly, are obsessed with data.
We love people who take pride in their work, obsess over the details – but insist on shipping often, love working in a small team, don’t let roadblocks get in their way, and love to learn new skills.
- Have strong Ruby and/or Rails skills to push a feature from design to production
- Have a good DevOps culture, using tools such as Grunt and BuildKite
- Have good experience with PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, or other Relational DBs and Search Engines
- Have managed or be comfortable with AWS and cloud concepts
- Take UX, performance and overall product quality to heart
Background on Lexer
Founded in Australia in 2008, Lexer is a SaaS company helping brands Genuinely Engage customers.
We aim to put data to work to genuinely understand and engage customers.
Nothing matters more than customers, so we offer sophisticated tools, human data and expert advice to help customer-loving companies put their data to work to genuinely understand and engage customers.
The Lexer team consists of three Groups:
- Product & Data: Build and maintain world class product
- Operations: Finance, legal, HR, marketing & admin
- Sales & Success: Win, grow and retain happy clients
We believe in and live by these values daily – they’re essential to our success and it’s important you know and understand them.
Clients. Clients. Clients: Without clients we don’t have a company, jobs or fun. So think of clients first when making every decision.
You, us, we: The people with the best people win. So never, ever let mediocrity exist.
Careful craft: Getting the job done is good, but not good enough. So over-deliver with care and polish, we call this done, done.
Champagne taste. Beer budget: Good things don’t have to cost the earth. So be wise and frugal when you spend money.
Simplicity > Complexity: Simple is hard to make and easy to use. So make everything as simple as humanly possible.
Trust and be trusted: You are empowered to fail. And trusted to succeed. So be responsible, seek guidance not approval and celebrate success.
Problem solve: Problems are cheap and easy. Solutions are hard and valuable. So look for problems to discover the opportunity.
Design for scale: Scale is difficult to scale. So make decisions and progress to support tomorrow, today.
Commit to commit: It is highly improbable that we will agree on everything. So commit to maintain our pace.
How are you feeling?: The antidote to uncertainty is understanding. So ask how are you feeling? With feeling.
Challenge Convention: Use your experience to do things differently. Progress without change isn’t progress.
