HeadUp Labs: Backend Software Engineer (.NET, Azure) at HeadUp Labs (Prahran, Australia) (Prahran, Australia)

Posted: Sep 11, 2019

Are you an agile, creative and open-minded kind of person who isn’t afraid of questioning the status quo? If you answered yes – then bingo! Please read on. 


We’re looking for a Backend Software Engineer with solid experience in .NET and Azure. Ideally, you’ll have a track record of developing scalable systems and will have had some exposure to serverless/FaaS approaches.


What do we do? In a nutshell, we harness data and technology to empower people to take care of their own health. We’ve built an app that draws data from a person’s life using wearables, health and mobile devices to present them with a clear picture of their health and support them to live longer, happier and healthier.


This is a unique opportunity to be a part of something extraordinary, while working with a passionate and supportive group of people. Our office is in Prahan – so we are utterly spoilt for choice when it comes to food and caffeine. You should also know that we think we’re hilarious, so a good sense of humour is necessary to fit in.


What you need for the job:



  • Plenty of experience developing applications in C#

  • Previous exposure to serverless/FaaS architectural styles

  • Ability to reason about the behaviour of distributed systems operating at scale

  • Familiarity with Git and CI/CD systems (we use Azure DevOps Pipelines)

  • Excellent communication and coordination skills

  • Appreciation for logging, monitoring, and alerting tools

  • Great communication with internal stakeholders and external contacts alike

  • Understanding of the importance of various forms of automated testing

  • Willingness to stay abreast of technological developments (and incorporate them judiciously)


What you’ll be doing:



  • Use .Net to extend and maintain our API and collection of serverless functions, to support our popular Android and iOS apps

  • Leverage telemetry data to ensure our code remains performant and scalable

  • Work with a multi-functional team and ship quality features in a timely cadence

  • Work closely with frontend developers to ensure the app remains aligned with the backend

  • Collaborating with and supporting our data scientists in the productization of their models

  • Managing the delivery of your own epics and assisting others in the delivery of theirs

  • Exploring new tools and techniques, to help us maintain our technological advantage


We’re definitely a dream team, but does this sound like your dream job? Then apply now and please send us a personalised cover letter explaining how you’d be the perfect candidate.
