We are looking for a couple of amazing software developers to join the team at Cliniko to work during Australian business hours. Cliniko is a web application, comprising Ruby on Rails in the backend, and we’re in the process of transitioning the frontend to a React stack. This role will need to work with both backend and frontend, but working with Ruby will be the primary focus.

We’re a globally remote team, but for this role, we need people in a time zone that matches well with Australian business hours. 9am to 5pm AEST should fall within 7am - 7pm in your time zone. If that doesn’t work for you, don’t worry, we’ll be hiring again soon without the time zone restriction. To be clear though, we will not consider anyone for this role, that isn’t in a close time zone to Australia.

What is Cliniko?

Cliniko is practice management software that makes life easy for allied health professionals by handling appointment scheduling, storing treatment notes, running video consultations, and much more. The software is used globally by tens of thousands of practitioners every day.

Behind Cliniko is a team of 43 people, spread around the world. We work completely remotely, although our base is in Melbourne, Australia. We care more about finding the best person for the job than looking for someone that lives nearby.

We don't have managers, we almost never have meetings, and there are no time sheets to complete. We're responsible, autonomous, creative, and proactive in doing our best for our customers. We're focused on making great software and we take pride in doing good work. It’s also important to us that we have a positive impact on the world.

If you want to know more about how we work, our founder, Joel, gave a talk about it.

What you’ll work on

You will spend your time developing Cliniko. Some of the things you’ll do are:

  • Adding new features to Cliniko.

  • Improving existing features.

  • Fixing bugs.

  • Refactoring code.

  • Reviewing code written by other developers.

  • Making Cliniko faster.

  • Improving security.

  • Resolving issues for customers.

  • Assisting the support team with queries.

  • Testing and deploying your own code.

  • Anything else you think needs doing.

Basically, you’ll be doing all you can to make Cliniko better for our customers.

About you

You are someone who loves to code, and cares about having code that is easy to understand. You’re passionate about your work having a positive impact. You want to learn and share what you know.

Taking initiative, and being responsible come naturally to you. You want your code meticulously reviewed, so that you can improve it. You also enjoy doing the same in return. You enjoy working with a team, but you are driven and motivated to take control of your projects, and deliver your own code.

You understand the importance of security practices in your development. You write tests because they matter, not just to achieve coverage.

You’re comfortable working from the database through to the DOM. This includes:

  • Relational databases.

  • Queues and caches.

  • Server side web frameworks.

  • JSON APIs.

  • Client side JS.

  • HTML.

  • CSS (basic knowledge is fine).

We use Ruby on Rails. Experience with it is not required, but similar experience and an ability to quickly come up to speed is.

No matter what your background is, or how you identify, if you feel you meet the requirements, we encourage you to apply. We know that having a diverse team brings the benefit of different perspectives, and it's how we’ll continue to find new ways to make Cliniko better. We are committed to the continual diversification of the team and working to constantly improve our inclusivity which is crucial to how we work.

How we work

Here are some things we do a little differently to enable people to do their best work and live a happy life:

  • 30-hour work week, full-time pay.

  • Flexible hours, choose when you work

  • Work from anywhere.

  • Unlimited annual leave (minimum 4 weeks per year).

  • Supplied computer equipment.

  • Ergonomic furniture.

  • Fresh organic fruit delivered weekly to your home.

  • Overseas trips for full team meet-ups (family invited and paid for, too).

  • No managers.

  • No meetings.

How to apply

The following page has the application form with a few questions. The “Tell us about yourself” field needs to give us enough information to be interested in taking you to the next stage. We typically get a lot of applications (hundreds at a minimum), so do put some effort into this section please. Notably, there's no resume submission, nor a cover letter, so that's your spot to give us some insight into who you are. And please be yourself, there’s no need for formality.

There'll be a few other short questions, including one asking for an answer to a pseudocode statement. It's important to answer that correctly. We won’t consider any applications that get it wrong.

Note: While the form does allow you to upload a resume, it’s only to prefill the contact fields for you. We won’t see the resume.

Job applications close 5th of December, 2021.

What you can expect after applying

Once you’ve applied, sit back and relax while we get to work on our side! We’ll be reviewing all the applications as they come in, and we’ll get back to you at latest, a week after applications close. Everyone will hear back from us, successful or not.

If we select you for the next stage, it will be a short 5 minute chat with our founder, Joel. Following the chat, if you’re still a contender, there’ll be a technical task to complete. These tasks are paid.

Lastly, you’d meet with a few from our team, and we’ll make the final decision. This is the exciting part for us, and hopefully also for the chosen person. We’ll hire them to join our team! That will happen fast, and the start date will be chosen by the applicant.

We know it’s quite a process to go through, so we want to make sure you know what you’re in for up front. We’ll be transparent with everyone along the way.

One final note, unfortunately due to the quantity of applications we receive, we are not able to provide feedback for those not successful in the first round. In the later stages, we’ll do our best to provide what we can, if requested.

Good luck!
