What working at nPlan will be like:

  • We are still a small team so there is plenty of opportunity for a high degree of ownership over different areas of the product, and you will be directly exposed to all areas of the business.
  • Your voice will always be heard. What you do or say counts, not who you are or where you're from.
  • We have three core values that underlie everything we do: Learn from Everything, Be Radically Truthful, and Aim High, Run Fast. These enable us to create a collaborative, inclusive environment where we can move effectively and efficiently to implement the best solutions.
  • We are a cross-disciplinary team, and come from all backgrounds and countries.
  • Fantastic benefits package for Health & Wellbeing, Learning & Development, family leave, weekly team lunches and more.
  • We are committed to addressing the diversity problem in the tech industry, and that starts with making sure we have a diverse team where everyone feels at home and can contribute as an equal.
  • Having time to yourself and a private life is important. We offer a very flexible work environment and a generous holiday policy.

What your typical work week will be like:

As a Software Engineer, you can expect to be working with other engineering and product experts across a range of disciplines as part of a product-focused delivery squad. A typical week could involve a mix of focus time developing new features and/or capabilities for our products, code-pairing with other members of your squad to pay back some tech debt, having a 1-1 with your Chapter Lead (mentor), or designing the architecture we'll need for our next goal. We operate in sprints with daily standups and use Slack, Jira, Github, and Google Meet as collaboration tools.
