Part-Time Web Developer/Head of Tech

Home Care Heroes – Posted by homecareheroes Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Job Description

Who are Home Care Heroes?

We are a social enterprise, making a real difference in the community by helping socially isolated and vulnerable people be connected and independent as well as feel valued and happy.  Our platform matches them with everyday people who they build friendships with and who can help them with everyday errands, chores and appointments. We are using technology to bring people together, changing the way that traditional care is done and perceived.  We have grown significantly over the past year with between 25-120% growth month on month.  Check us out at


We are looking for a Ruby on Rails developer to join us in taking our application to the next level.

Our stack is a standard rails application that you are probably familiar with and incorporates …

– Ruby on Rails 5

– PostgreSQL

– Heroku

– TDD/rspec


– CSS3 and Sass

We use Github and Slack for communication.


We are looking for someone who

  • Is passionate about building our social enterprise into a successful, scaleable business and wants to make a real and positive impact in the community
  • Has the abilities and vision to run our tech
  • Has 2+ years experience working as a full stack web developer.
  • Has full stack skills – front-end, back-end, and data skills are a must, but we’re flexible on the specifics for the right fitting person.
  • Big plus if you have UX experience
  • Is results driven and hungry – takes challenges head on, an open minded, creative and resourceful problem solver who continually strives to improve

Why join us?

  • This is your chance to join something from the start. You will not only get to do great, interesting work in a growing startup in an emerging industry but you will also get that fuzzy feeling inside because you know that you’re making an impact and changing people’s lives.
  • We left our corporate jobs to build an organisation where we want to work. As our first hire you get to help us create a great culture where employee happiness, community spirit and growth in revenue are all equally important.  Where everyone is encouraged to learn, improve and get stuff done!
  • We’re flexible and don’t believe in politics or ‘face time’, so you can work flexible hours, from home or anywhere else that suits you.
  • Salary is negotiable and for the right person sweat equity will be an option as we want to work with someone who is really motivated and has skin in the game
