Technical Lead

Tech · Albion, Queensland
Department Tech
Employment Type Full-Time


What we do

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 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.

We’re so proud of our volunteer management platform, and 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 goal was to amplify our impact by enabling and connecting organisations with a shared purpose. We presented our concept as a bid in the Google Impact Challenge, and were awarded a grant which has allowed us to accelerate our work.


Our platform is called Campfire - the only purpose-built cloud-based tools specifically designed to help for-purpose organisations amplify their impact - and we’re looking for someone to lead the team.


The Role

Campfire is a SaaS solution inspired and created by Orange Sky.


We’re searching for an amazing leader to join our expanding team. There’s room to make this role totally your own. We’re open to finding new ways to work, but in a nutshell, you’ll:

  • Provide leadership and technical advice to shape the development and ongoing maintenance of our platform
  • Work alongside the product team to define technical designs of the platform
  • Provide the day-to-day direction and mentoring of a diverse engineering team, ensuring work is planned, assigned and tracked to maintain flow and meet goals


A day in the life

You’ll 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.

Orange Sky is a fast paced environment working super cool stuff with the latest tech. You can look forward to a supportive, outcome driven environment where working flexibly is encouraged (no daily 9-5 grind here!) and continuous learning through formal professional development programs is valued. 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 are professional, but a start-up (yes, some of us wear shorts to work), set on making a massive impact in the community.


Convinced this is the role for you?

Whilst solid technical skills will be a plus in this role, our ideal candidate doesn’t need extensive experience as a senior engineer.

If you bring a balance of sound technical skills, a strong yet collaborative leadership style and mentoring ability, and experience leading the development of SaaS solutions – you might just be our perfect fit!

Our tech stack:

  • PHP 7
  • MariaDM
  • React
  • Typescript
  • Docker
  • TeamCity


The Nitty-Gritty:

This role is located in Albion, Brisbane City Fringe suburb, and parking is available. Successful candidates will be required to obtain a Police Certificate.
