Frontend Developer

What is Clipchamp?

We’re a Brisbane-based video-tech company whose unique, in-browser applications overcome limitations of both desktop and cloud-based alternatives with one simple mission: to help everyone become a creator of awesome video content! Whether it’s in a professional or private context, videos get the point across easier and are simply more fun to consume. We exist to make sure they’re also fun to create!

Since 2013 we’ve published 3 products to-date, attracting nearly 7 million global users and counting! And that’s only the beginning… We’re transforming the way people create and we’re looking for a Frontend Developer to play in this awesomely innovative and evolving field with us – someone who enjoys both thinking and doing, striking a pragmatic balance between thinking a problem through and executing the results using the most advanced and modern frontend frameworks.

As a Clipchamp Frontend Developer, you are excited about building a technically challenging application, rather than a website. You strive for excellence by not only delivering high quality code, but also are more interested in doing something properly than to keep fixing it. You are driven and curious by default, using data and experiments to learn and iterate quickly, excited when gaining insights that help you develop better, faster and with higher quality.

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • build and ship working software that solves problems for millions of people in every country of the world
  • leverage and continue expanding experience and depth of knowledge in latest versions of Angular, Typescript, ES6 and ESNext
  • collaborate with co-founders, growth hackers, designers and other developers in small cross-functional teams
  • directly impact strategic decisions related to core product functions and new features
  • advance your career in a truly innovative environment, solving problems that have never been solved before

You’ll be bringing:

  • a university degree in Engineering, Computer Science, Information Technology, Maths or similar, paired with strong coding skills
  • 2+ years experience in software engineering preferred
  • demonstrated frontend experience with SPA/PWA Web stacks such as Angular (preferred), React, or Vue
  • updated knowledge of latest industry developments
  • great communication – you can implement new methods, surface and resolve disagreements without breaking a sweat
  • Ambition to get things done, now, the fast lane, no bureaucracy, idleness is boring

Bonus points if you love

  • Online video and understanding the technically challenging problems we’re solving
  • Startups – incomplete briefs, unpredictability, urgency, the need for initiative and the rapid growth opportunities that come with it
  • Maxing out what browsers can do, that’s what we’re about! We were told you can’t build a video editing platform in browser, including encoding the final video – but we did

Clipchamp Perks & Benefits:

  • Competitive salary & share options
  • Flexible work & work-life balance supporters
  • On-site Yoga & Pilates
  • Team lunches & Sponsored social events
  • Professional learning and development
  • Employee Discount
