At SafetyCulture, we’re solving problems that fundamentally change the way people work and positively impact the world.

We’re looking for talented people to help us build a world class engineering team. A recent funding round gives us a AU$1.3Bn valuation, and the funds will be used to evolve the product into a communication and collaboration platform. We’re innovating and expanding into sensors and IoT, and telematics for fleets. We’re facing interesting technical challenges as we scale, and have an ambitious goal to have 100 million workers using our products every day.

The role

As a Quality Engineer, you will facilitate communication across all of SafetyCulture with the intent of improving clarity and insight into the software development life cycle. Working as part of our Customer Facing Engineering Tribe you will be working in a cross-functional team with Engineers, a Product Manager and a Product Designer.

How you can have an impact

As a Quality Engineer, you’ll have influence over the direction of the team and function. You’ll actively participate in initiatives aimed at improving the way we do things, experimenting with ways to become more efficient and productive, and bringing these learnings to the engineering leadership team. We encourage involvement in the community, open source work, attending talks and events, and experimenting with new technologies.

The teams

In Sydney we have teams developing and supporting our SaaS platform, working on extending the functionality and longer term strategic bets, including real-time incident reporting, analytics, and IoT. Each team has a co-located manager, product manager, designer, direct access to customers, and support from specialists in quality, SRE and specific technologies.
