Seeking: A skilled developer for an exciting payroll compliance start up

About the business

Our mission at Paytools: to provide advanced payroll technology that helps organisations to meet employee and compliance obligations.

We’re looking for a full stack developer who loves a fast-paced environment. We’re a small team of dedicated tech experts, working to analyse and identify compliance issues in payroll environments.


Who we’re looking for

First and foremost, we’re after someone who shares our values: being disciplined and a master of your craft, an innovator who takes risks, and being passionate, honest and fun.

Of course, we also need a certain level of experience and expertise for a position as important as this one:

  • You’re team-first, and a great communicator – no bullshit, no buzzwords, just tell it how it is
  • You love teaching others about what you know, and you love to learn
  • You love challenging problems – you dissect and eat stuff like this for breakfast
  • You have experience with systems communicating via Webhooks, SOAP, RESTful APIs, and authenticating using OAuth, SSO, SAML and other technologies
  • You can work in a small team or independently
  • You write clean, simplistic code – no matter what programming language

We’re looking for developers who are happy to get their hands dirty in anything that needs to be done across our tech & tools.  


Our tech stack

The main stack for this role includes:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Tailwinds UI
  • PostgreSQL
  • Working with Xero API’s

Other tools we use

  • Amazon Web Services and Vultr
  • Source Code Management – we use BitBucket
  • Continuous Integration system – we use Codeship
  • Knowledge Management – Confluence
  • Application Deployment Orchestration — Cloud66 

Why you’ll love working for us

We don’t just reward our employees with a salary – you want to enjoy what you do!

  • You love small companies – we’re 10 people under one roof where you get up-close to all workings of a true SaaS business
  • We run a transparent company – this means our people understand our strategy, performance, goals and decision-making process  challenging ourselves and learning new things  
  • You love to push yourself – we’re constantly re-evaluating what we do, challenging ourselves and learning new things
  • TGIF – every Friday we eat together, finish early and let dogs roam the office for some furry fun! 
  • Family friendly – we value the work/life balance – a lot of us have young families so we’re flexible with working hours and commitments 


6 reasons you SHOULD’T work for us

  • You don’t like change – experimenting, testing and change is part of our culture
  • You want a job not a career – maybe you’d be better off at a large company
  • You live on the west side of Melbourne – it’s a long way to our office in Ringwood!
  • You really don’t like dogs
  • You don’t know what SaaS is
  • You want to be micro-managed – we’re looking for a self-starter
