About Orange Sky Australia
Orange Sky Australia (OSA) is a not-for-profit organisation focused on the provision of free laundry and showers to people experiencing homelessness. We're growing, and fast. Since 2014, we've expanded our reach to every capital city in Australia and most recently, across the waters to Auckland, too.
Through a network of vans and with the help of almost 2,000 volunteers across Australia, our mobile service is a catalyst for positive, genuine connections. We’re driven, dedicated, insanely ambitious and a little unconventional. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves. We work hard and ‘get it done’, but always make time to celebrate each other’s success.
Our mobile laundry and shower vans are pretty unique and we’re always striving to do things better. Over the last two years, we’ve built our own App and web-based Portal which has been instrumental in the sustained growth of the organisation.
Our Software Developers are responsible for developing, implementing, maintaining and optimising these and other tools that help the rest of the organisation run more efficiently.
No two days are ever the same, life at Orange Sky is fast paced and exciting, and you can always count on the support of an amazing team.
We're looking for:
Undergraduate (and above) software knowledge across both front-end and back-end development
A positive and proactive attitude towards learning and developing in new frameworks, languages and tools
Well-developed written and verbal communication skills across technical and non-technical team members
Genuine passion for working in a rapidly growing for-purpose organization

Modern Front-End Development: AngularJS, React, Vue, Browser Debugging, RESTful JSON APIs, HTML/CSS, ECMAScript 6, React Native
Back-End Development: PHP 7, SQL, DB Normalisation, ORMs
Development & Workflow Tools: Git, UNIX, Asana, Insomnia
Software Design Principles: Information Security, Clean Code, Unit Testing, Integration Testing
We offer our employees a supportive and fun team environment, professional development opportunities and generous salary packaging benefits.
