Frontend Developer 2015

THIS POSITION HAS BEEN FILLED - page left online for historical purposes.

FastMail is constantly pushing the frontier of what can be done with web technology.

Our interface ain't just a bunch of jQuery; it's a highly sophisticated application based on our own Overture JS library, that's competitive in both speed and features with native applications. We take pride in the UX we offer, and really care about the details. We love to add little enhancements that users will probably only ever notice subconsciously, but make the experience that little bit better.

We're looking for someone to join us in tackling the hard, interesting problems in front-end programming. Problems like rock-solid data synchronisation, full offline capability and smooth, fluid, delightful UI.

You will be involved in both design work and front-end engineering. You will quickly take ownership of core parts of the FastMail interface, and rapidly see your work used by hundreds of thousands of people (and growing fast!). You're happy to evaluate existing solutions, but not afraid of building your own to get the best possible result. You like working with a team of other motivated, highly intelligent engineers, because you get so much awesome work done. You probably have a suitable disdain for bureaucracy.

If you're nodding your head right now, it sounds like you might be the person we're looking for to join us in our Melbourne, Australia office We've got a great work environment and the chance to really make an impact in the huge market of email and productivity.

Required Skills/Qualifications:

Drop us a line at and let us know why you think you'd be a great fit; including some links to code you've written might be helpful.

(please note, you must already have the right to work in Australia; we are unfortunately unable to help with visas or sponsorship)
