API Platform Engineer

Why go to a GP when you need a Heart Surgeon.


We believe in bringing craftsmanship back into technology, because as technology artisans, we passionately care about the quality outcomes we leave behind.


We have some of the best talent in Australia (I'm sure that is also globally) and due to ongoing client demand we need more exceptional team members that can work in small teams to deliver amazing results across all of the practices we have.

You know, work doesn't have to feel like work. In fact, we don't want it to. That's why we've cultivated an environment based on creativity. Because when people who care about their craft are given the freedom to explore possibilities without restriction, amazing things can happen.



No cool cliques, just hard-working humans generating ideas and devising solutions in a creative, collaborative work space. Professional but not corporate, we believe success is achieved through strong leadership (without interference from middle-management) and an autonomous working environment backed by the moral support of like-minded peers.
