Freelance Front End Web Developer and Startup Partner

Realest – Posted by Realest Perth, Western Australia, Australia

Job Description

Realest is a brand new Perth based startup with a simple ideology: that when it comes to renting, buying or selling a home, the power should be in your hands. We have discovered a problem and we have come up with a great solution but we need help to get the Realest web platform off the ground.

Being a fresh startup at the idea stage puts us in the unique and exciting position to be able to offer a front end web developer a percentage stake in Realest and the chance to have a major impact on the company’s direction. We are looking for the right person to form part of the initial Realest team, someone who can be as passionate about Realest as we are. This opportunity is ideal for students or freelance professionals who will get as much out of their experience as they are willing to put in.

The successful candidate will:

  • Own a percentage of Realest in the range of 5% to 30% as agreed before on boarding
  • Work closely with the Realest founding partners to develop the Realest web platform from the ground up
  • Get the chance to make a big impact and broaden your skillset along the way
  • Have the opportunity to lead the Realest web development team as new members come on board
  • Work under a flexible arrangement; a full time hours commitment is not required.

Candidates will ideally have the following:

  • HTML, CSS and Java expertise
  • Graphic design experience
  • Some level of understanding of back end web integration
  • Willingness to learn new skills and competencies as required
  • Development capability for both desktop and mobile devices formats
  • Passion for good design and a great user experience
  • The ability to solve problems and bring innovative ideas to the table
  • Excellent collaboration and communication skills
  • A personal portfolio that showcases some previous academic or professional front end web development work.

We can’t wait to meet you in person, but in the meantime due to the confidential nature of this opportunity the Realest team will only divulge specific information about the idea behind Realest to shortlisted candidates. If you’re wondering why we don’t have a website yet, it’s because we are a web-based startup and don’t want an online presence until it’s complete and perfect.

Note: Realest has not yet secured any funding outside of the investment from our founding partners, although we are actively seeking external funding. It is for this reason that the successful candidate will receive a percentage stake in Realest but will not initially receive any ongoing remuneration.
