Looking for a fun, challenging career on the Gold Coast? We're always on the lookout for more people to join our team. Check out our available roles below, or get in contact if you think you have what it takes to work here.

Why work with us?

CartonCloud is rapidly expanding due to achieving year-on-year growth in excess of 100%.

What you can expect from us

A quiet, but intense and challenging environment. Our CEO and staff work incredibly hard, and incredibly quickly. The team leads here are 10xr's and we're not willing to compromise on anything less from the staff they manage.

We have sizeable equity options with key staff members to further engagement and ensure they have some skin in the game. However, these are only discussed after we've been able to determine someones aptitude and ability to accept responsibility (responsibility ownership is a key metric here).

We offer competitive salaries and are based in the Gold Coast and have nice offices based in Burleigh Heads.

We're growing really quickly. The company you join today will be very different from the company in 6 months time (just ask any staff member who was here 6 months ago).

We encourage people to talk about, and laugh about their mistakes. We have cookie jar that names go in if you make a mistake that's deemed worthy - then on Friday we draw out one lucky winner. Most of the time it's the CEO who gets drawn as he makes more mistakes than anyone else.

Overall, it's a tough gig, but we all have fun putting in the work. We laugh about the mistakes, post a constant stream of memes on our slack channels, eat lunch together and do things on Fridays like head down to the beach and play Volleyball, put on an afternoon BBQ, bring in a Masseuse or sit down in the downstairs den and watch the Silicon Valley TV show together over a beer. Obviously we don't play volleyball every week, but we try to get out to celebrate the milestones.

Not on the Gold Coast? Consider relocating!

  • Beaches, rainforest and sunshine all year round
  • Affordable property market and lower cost of living than the major cities
  • Family-friendly environment with high-class schools and universities
  • Endless choice of outdoor activities

Right now we're not looking to take on any developers who are working remotely. We want the core team to be under one roof to keep things moving ahead at the fastest pace possible.

What kit will I get when I join?

  • Macbook Pro 13, 15 or a comparable Windows laptop if you prefer (ie: HP Spectre, Dell XPS 13 etc), carry case, additional charger etc.
  • Another 2 x 27" UHD monitors (we're all rocking the 3-screen setup).
  • Steelseries 9H headset
  • Very comfortable chair

Roles Available

Software Developer

An exciting opportunity currently exists to join our awesome team in the Gold Coast for a talented Software Developer; a chance for you to apply your technical knowledge to real-world business challenges.

The role

The successful candidate will have a desire to not only implement new features and improvements to the existing software, but to work with the support and operations team on understanding customer roadblocks and requirements to ensure they become successful users of the system. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Development of our large, ERP-style Transport and Warehouse Management System
  • Cross-training across multiple technologies (PHP, Java, React) and applying your new
    skills when working with the rest of the development team to produce great new features,
    refactor old code, enhance APIs and implement further automated testing.

  • Liaising with our operations and support team to identify client requirements and assisting with trouble-shooting
  • Providing customer support
  • Developing and improving public documentation of the software’s functionality and features, as well as internal documentation around processes and applied technology
  • Taking part in daily standups and regular team-wide meetings to discuss current and upcoming tasks
  • Reporting to the team and stakeholders on progress, timelines and road blocks

About you

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Graduate / Junior / Mid-level Software development experience in either PHP, Java or React - while we value previous experience, we are happy to consider enthusiastic and talented graduates or juniors
  • Strong, clear and well-organized written and oral communication skills
  • Desire and ability to learn, understand and explain the technology behind CartonCloud
  • Self-motivation with an agile mindset (Jira, Sprints, Scrums) 
  • A love for challenging tasks and working out solutions to tricky problems (with the help of the rest of the team)

You are a creative thinker with strong analytical and problem-solving skills. You also possess the ability to work independently under minimal supervision effectively. You will need to take ownership, accountability and initiative to be successful in the role.

Most of all though, we are looking for someone who is driven, adaptable and willing to learn. We ask that you enjoy your work, add value and, just as importantly, stay humble.

The other stuff

It’s a permanent position working on a complex software engineering project,  with a competitive salary plus super based on experience.

We will support your desire for continual learning and training to help you flourish. We are always open to new ideas, processes and technologies and value everybody’s input. Moreover, we have been growing rapidly over the last few years and have no intention of slowing down, so there will be loads of opportunities, both domestically and internationally. 

This is a Gold Coast position and definitely requires the ability to either commute or relocate here. Just in case beach, rainforest and sunshine all year round wasn’t enough to convince you (and the endless choice of outdoor activities), it is also an affordable property market with a lower cost of living that the other major cities in a family-friendly environment with high-class schools and universities.
