lead developer - 12d synergy

We are looking for a Lead Developer to join our expanding development team. This is a newly created role offering the perfect blend of both management, and hands-on development.

As the team lead your role will be a mix of driving best practice & mentoring the development team. Day to day responsibilities will be split between management and hands-on development, so you should expect to still get your hands dirty with code!

We are looking for someone who appreciates & enjoys a technical challenge and has a love for problem solving.

The best part is that it offers the challenge to work on a software product with relevant, real world benefits. Some of the high-profile projects in Australia that have used 12d Synergy to manage their data and processes include NorthConnex and WestConnex in NSW, and the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing in Queensland.

What We Do & Who We Are

12d Synergy is a new and exciting, fast-growing Australian-based SaaS and on-premises software company. We create data management and project collaboration software for the architectural, engineering and construction industry.

Our software manages the mountains of emails, documents and data created around some of Australia and New Zealand’s most complex and awe-inspiring infrastructure projects, such as Sydney’s NorthConnex.

We have a thriving and extremely loyal international customer base of 5000+ users, which you will help to support and grow.

Why You Should Apply

At the heart of 12d Synergy is a young and vibrant, positivity-driven culture that makes us an awesome place to work. We’re searching for people who want to be a part of this culture.

We’re a fun, supportive, open and family-friendly company, driven by the vision of transforming the lives of our customers with incredible software.

You will work in a brand-new office space, located in Frenchs Forest on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, that offers an open and collaborative working environment. We have a café in the building, a gym and childcare next door and lots of public transport and parking options. You can work and live locally, enjoying the wonders of driving to work against the Sydney peak hour traffic.

So, how can this role get any better you ask? 12d Synergy is a server application for Windows environments, with an installed thick client, and a web and mobile client under development. We have an existing product; so, you definitely aren’t being asked to achieve the impossible!
