Front End Developer

Benevity is seeking a Front End Developer to join the growing team in our Victoria office. You are a creative front-end developer who is experienced in planning and developing user interfaces for web-based applications. You have an unquenchable thirst for all things that relate to to the user interface; your interest goes beyond code and stretches to design, usability and user experience.

You are a wizard with Javascript & CSS, have experience with PHP, and have good communication skills and a strong work ethic. You will become an integral part of our web development team, liaising with Client Services, Product Management and Quality Assurance to ensure that we continue to deliver creative, high-quality SaaS-based solutions.

We have that fun, flexible tech culture that people love, and we have a heart. We’re a registered B Corporation, which means we’re part of a new breed of companies committed to higher social and sustainability standards.

You’ll join a dedicated, passionate team that creates innovative solutions (we have two TechRev Innovators Awards under our belt) for our raving fans (er, clients). And you’ll get to rub shoulders with some of the most iconic companies and charities in the world to help them make a difference. Our dynamic environment appeals to self-driven, flexible team players who learn quickly, aren’t afraid to tackle hard problems and don’t mind wearing jeans to work. Sound cool? Join us!
