About Orange Sky
Orange Sky Australia (OS) 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, we have established Orange Sky New Zealand. Next steps include further growth in New Zealand, urban and remote Australia, and potentially elsewhere across the globe.
What we do
We build awesome tech solutions to amplify our impact on the community.
Our mobile laundry and shower vans are pretty unique, and there wasn’t any technology in the market that suited our needs. So, in 2017, we started building our own technology solutions (Orange Sky Portal) to help operate our fast growing organisation which encompasses over 1700 volunteers across Australia and New Zealand. The technology has been instrumental in the sustained and forecast growth of the organisation.
The technology was so great, we wanted to share it with other organisations like ours. So in, 2018 we decided to convert the technology we had developed at Orange Sky into something that could be used more broadly by other organisations like us (“our Partners”). Our goal was to amplify our impact by enabling and connecting organisations with a shared purpose. The project was called Campfire. We presented the Campfire concept as a bid in the Google Impact Challenge, and as a result were awarded a grant which has allowed us to accelerate our work on Campfire.
Campfire and the Orange Sky Portal are the only purpose built cloud-based tools specifically designed to help for purpose organisations amplify their impact. Campfire and the Orange Sky Portal streamline the full volunteer lifecycle, promote enriched data capture and provide greater insight into social impact.
Why we need you!
Our expanding team of Software Developers are responsible for creating and improving the technology solutions used by Orange Sky and our Partners. We are passionate about the community and improving the lives of others – so we are looking for people to join our amazing team who also align with our purpose and genuinely care about making a difference in our community.
Life at Orange Sky is exciting and rewarding. We provide an opportunity to grow personally and professionally – we’re all learning and are looking for someone who can share their knowledge, but also wants to learn from those around them.
We have an amazing open plan office with plenty of collaborative spaces, breakout rooms and workspaces. You’ll find a ping pong table, synthetic grass flooring, whiteboard walls and plenty of caffeine to keep you going. We value continuous learning and development through formal professional development programs, and both internal and external mentoring.
A day in the life
You will find yourself working in a dynamic, cross functional team with designers and product management, along with other front-end and back-end developers.
We develop and build with our Partners, we are market led and care about improvement in both with what we create and how we create it. Daily stand-ups, planning boards, retros and all that usual stuff happens here – but we don’t just talk about creating things – we do it.
In a nutshell, Orange Sky is a fast paced environment and do super cool stuff with the latest tech. We’re a supportive, outcome driven environment – we are professional, but a start-up (yes, some of us where shorts to work), set on making a massive impact in the community.
