We’ve just opened up three brand new positions in our Sydney office and wanted to share them here first. It doesn’t seem long ago that 3 of us launched Campaign Monitor from a small office. Today there are 20 of us working hard across Australia, the US, Canada and Norway to build the best email marketing software out there for designers.
Before I dig into the details on the position, I wanted to share a little about what it’s like working for Campaign Monitor.
We pride ourselves on building a pretty unique environment for our team to work in. While most tech companies go with the standard open plan office, our experience shows that the ability to cut out distractions is important. Instead, we provide large closable offices for our entire development team. You can read more about our thinking on this subject in this post from last year. We’re currently in the process of tripling our current space, which will give us up to 40 offices, a huge lunch area and, most importantly, room for a second ping pong table and gaming area.
While we do our best to remove distractions, we also like to spend a good amount of time together every day. We all eat lunch together at the same table every day of the week. This has been an awesome way for the team to really get to know each other and have that social aspect without the constant interruptions you’d expect from open plan. Everyone’s lunch is free, and fully catered from a local supplier (via our super cool lunch ordering system). We also get out of the office for a day every month for things like go karting, playing golf and surfing lessons.
Last year we were even lucky enough to be named the coolest company in Australia growing globally. Building software is serious business, but that sure as heck doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun doing it.
Who we’re looking for
You might have noticed that we take serious pride in our pixels. We’re looking for a senior designer to join our team and help create the best experiences possible for our customers. You’ll be playing a big part in how our software works, and also get your feet wet across many other parts of the business. Whether it’s working on a new design for our web site, designing a banner ad and landing page for a campaign we’re running or coming up with t-shirt design ideas. Learn more and apply
As we continue to expand our infrastructure, we’re after a seasoned Systems Engineer to help us manage this growth. You’ll be responsible for keeping Campaign Monitor running smoothly and working with the rest of our operations team to ensure we continue to scale. You’ll also be helping to monitor our deliverability across multiple data centers and respond to issues as they arise. Learn more and apply
We’re looking for a QA engineer who has substantial manual and automated testing experience and can code C# or Java without breaking a sweat. You’ll be working closely with our development team to build on our existing suite of automated tests (WebAii) that run as part of our continuous integration build. Learn more and apply
I should also clarify that all three of these positions are in our Sydney office, which is not far from the beach and around 30 minutes south of the city centre.
