    We are an Australian-based digital media company with a passion for real estate.
    Our leading brand is Australia’s biggest property resource, realestate.com.au. We also operate the number one commercial property site, realcommercial.com.au, and have businesses that help property developers and other brands advertise with us. Whilst we live in Australia, we’ve also got ventures in Asia, Europe and North America, and have the vision of expanding our footprint further. Everything we do is driven by our purpose to ‘change the way the world experiences property’ – from product innovation to our international investments.

    The REA Group’s strategy is to change the way the world experiences property. The AAP tribe plays an important role in that strategy by developing, maintaining and improving the native mobile consumer experience. In addition to that the AAP mobile squads provide mobile development leadership and support to the broader organisation, including domestic and international products and brands. To be able to deliver the best consumer experiences at scale in the most efficient and technically sustainable way, AAP believes that integrated services and mobile oriented service architecture are vital to our continuing success. In this role, you will work as a member of the native mobile squads, designing, developing and maintaining these mobile services.

    We are looking to add a Senior Developer and Developer to this team who will be responsible for designing, implementing and maintaining our products in a collaborative team environment. You will be expected to implement solutions using a variety of programming languages, databases and cloud technologies. You will follow agile software development practices such as test driven development, continuous delivery and pair programming. You will form a part of a small cross-functional team and will make a contribution to the success of the team’s mission. You will use your skills and experience to mentor more junior team members.
    The Senior Developer / Developer supports the AAP Tribe in the following ways:

    • Designing, coding, testing and deploying new software products using a variety of technologies and platforms
    • Maintaining existing products, including bug fixes and “Business As Usual” feature enhancements
    • Supporting production systems
    • Building high quality solutions that meet the needs of our users

    • Tertiary qualification in Computer Science or similar highly desirable

    Each team has around 10 people who collectively represent technology, business, and product and work together to maintain existing products while building new capabilities for the business. Each day we get together, talk about what we’ve just done, what we’re about to do then work together during the day. We believe strongly in pairing, testing, continuous delivery. Each week we participate in guilds across the company to keep our skills sharp and increase our impact, and in team retrospectives where we keep track of how our team is going. Your manager acts as a mentor to help guide you and your career, instead of being someone who monitors your day to day.

    We’re committed to creating inclusive, safe environments where anyone, no matter their background, can contribute and succeed.

    Our people are our greatest asset. Without them, we would not be the successful business that we are today. That’s why we offer a range of benefits to ensure we hire and retain great staff.
