Senior Application Engineer (Front End)

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia | Engineering | Full-time


Quantium are continuing to hire with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. We look forward to meeting you in person when our offices re-open and it is safe to do so.

Founded in 2002, Quantium combines the best of human and artificial intelligence to power possibilities for individuals, organisations and society. Our solutions make sense of what has happened and what will, could or should be done to re-shape industries and societies around the needs of the people they serve. 

We're expanding our multi-tenanted Decision Support platform, used by thousands of users daily to make data-driven decisions. You'll lead the front end direction of the platform as we onboard more datasets and use cases.


Our opportunity

Working as part of a cohesive and collaborative cross-functional team, you’ll be rubbing elbows (because social distancing of course!) with product managers, UX/UI designers, analysts, testers and fellow engineers. You’ll make a positive contribution as an expert in your field who is excited by the idea of working across our stack and growing your "T" shape.

Whilst writing well-tested code day to day may be a given, here are a few other things you’ll master / contribute to at Quantium:

  • Influencing what we build and how we build it
  • Building up the front-end skill of the team, and in turn picking up other areas of our tech stack
  • Participating in our agile ceremonies
  • Performing code reviews
  • Wrangling CI, CD, and local development to "sharpen the saw"
  • Contributing to our in-house UI library
  • Supporting our customer engagement team, and keeping our production environment humming

From a stack perspective, we maintain a React Single Page Application (SPA) written in TypeScript, backed by C# .NET Core services, querying multi-tens-of-billion-row datasets in CosmosDB and Snowflake, populated by Scala and Spark. There's ample problems for you to solve at every layer of our stack.

Our new team member

Here are a few things we are looking for you to bring to the team:

  • You'll have experience building, iterating, and maintaining Single Page Applications. You're up-to-date with the latest in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript; navigating the cascade and event bubbling with ease
  • Testing across browsers and devices will feel second nature to you, and you're always looking for opportunities to improve performance
  • You'll be comfortable with programming functionally, particularly function composition and using types to avoid invalid states
  • You have experience working with designers and, ideally, design systems
  • Must have a passion for mentoring others, as well as setting goals for your own learning and development – we’re all about growth
