Women Impact Tech

Senior Software Engineer 1


About the Role:

About us
With offices in Sydney, Christchurch, Auckland, and Boulder, Trineo delivers custom technology solutions for global organi[sz]ations. Our work tackles system integration and data brokering, API development, and highly specific customer and employee applications. As an agile team, we present a complete service offering — with senior advisory services, product and project management, business analysis, UX, and engineering. We’re known for our ability to ship valuable work into production in complex and challenging environments.

We believe the best work is done when everyone is aligned with shared values, no matter the different backgrounds, skill sets, experiences, and dreams we bring. Our culture is ever-changing, evolving with every new Trineo, but our ways of working are based on values that remain steady.

Last but not least, Trineo is proudly a Certified B Corporation, joining the growing number of companies using business as a force for good. Certified B Corporations meet rigorous standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance purpose and profit. This enables us to put our values into action by not only making decisions for the benefit of our shareholders, but also for our customers, environment, employees, community, and planet.

About the role
Here’s the thing. Small (lowercase-a) agile teams will run rings around a traditional software development team. They adapt to change, make quick decisions, communicate better, and are simply more effective.

This insight continues to guide us after 11 years as a boutique software consultancy. Our teams blend product, design, and engineering thinking, to deliver sustained competitive advantage to our customers through the thoughtful creation of high-quality software.

And we solve hard problems. Almost all of our work involves the meaningful application of customer identity & access management, event-driven systems, and APIs to manage data (lots of data) to deliver digital experiences. We build thoughtfully designed web and mobile applications using modern engineering patterns and software.

With that, we’re looking for a Senior Engineer to join one of our world-class product development teams, contributing to one of the many strategic technology platforms that we build for our customers, serving millions of users around the globe.
