Now Hiring: Software Engineer

We are looking for passionate software engineers (with all levels of experience) to join established teams working on building Australia’s fastest growing digital bank, Up.

About Ferocia

Ferocia is a technology company that is proudly part of the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group (acquired in 2021). We have a hybrid work culture where people can attend the Ferocia office as much or as little as makes sense for them. We are currently only hiring in Melbourne or adjacent areas as we still value physically getting together at least half-dozen times per year. We currently build two products - Up, and Bendigo Bank's Internet Banking platform.

Ferocia hits that sweet spot of having a small company rhythm, with a large company reach and resources. We are proud that the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group is carbon neutral, community minded, and committed to high standards of corporate governance. Operating under that umbrella allows Ferocia to better pursue its mission: financial empowerment through technology.

Banking is an essential service, for the advantaged, disadvantaged, and everyone in between. We believe that through innovation and empathy, we can help the people who most need it have a better relationship with their money.

At Ferocia everyone gets the standard four weeks annual leave, and the office also closes down for a couple of weeks over the Christmas break (think of it like a loooooooong weekend). We have a generous parental leave policy and are extremely friendly to flexible working arrangements. All Ferocians must be vaccinated against COVID-19.

We take diversity and inclusivity seriously, so no matter who you are, who you love, or what you stand for, we just need you to be yourself.

About this role

We are looking for passionate software engineers (with all levels of experience) to join established teams working on building Australia’s fastest growing digital bank, Up.

Check out the Tree of Up for a glimpse into what we have planned to help people feel good about money.

Our tech stack is predominantly Ruby, Javascript, iOS, Android, and Google Cloud Platform. We use frameworks such as Rails, React, React Native, and Terraform to build and deploy high quality software. Experience in one or more of these technologies and frameworks is an advantage, but we're here for the long haul and are happy to support your learning if you have adjacent expertise.

We have a culture of continuous delivery. Deploying banking software to production several times a day by leaning heavily on engineer-driven test automation is our whole shtick. We consistently challenge established norms about how banking software should be built. We are currently using Shape Up as a delivery framework, with the balance of work being 75% coming from top-down planning processes and 25% coming bottom-up.

Does this sort of thing sound exciting to you? Send an email through to careers@up.com.au with your resume and a brief spiel on what you are passionate about and we'll take it from there.
