With offices in Dublin, Sydney, New York and Los Angeles we’re well on our way to becoming a global company, yet are still small enough for you to take ownership of your domain and contribute directly to the bottom line.

What’s the Role?

A great opportunity exists for a highly organized application support engineer, with a heavy focus on web technologies. You’ll be closely involved with triaging incoming support requests from our worldwide client base and liaising with our product engineering team based in Sydney.

  • confidently provide technical advice and recommendations to colleagues and clients

You will be:

  • a team player who likes to get involved with new challenges
  • passionate about technology and keen to continue learning
  • diligent and detail oriented

Who we want:

You will need:

  • excellent communication skills, to interface with both tech and non-tech audiences
  • a strong understanding of front-end technologies. (This role does not require working with our server stack or supporting employee hardware/software.)
  • strong development skills (including Javascript and PHP)
  • 1+ years experience working in a technical role
  • fluent written & spoken English

It would be great if you have:

  • BS/MS in Computer Science or a related technical field
  • 1+ years experience as a front-end developer
  • technical writing experience
  • Some experience in Python, Java, or C#. (This is not required, but is a bonus.)

Working with us:

Being part of the Learnosity team is a commitment to push yourself and those around you to do better, constantly adapt and learn new technologies, and be able to apply yourself to any challenge, whether you’re just starting out or a veteran of the industry.

We encourage staff to get involved in individual advancement and professional certification programmes and will sponsor certification exams where appropriate. Our team is on the cutting edge of web development and we want it to stay there.
