Job Description
Who We Are
We endeavour to improve the lives of people in Singapore, one line of code at a time. We work closely with a range of government agencies to build high-quality, citizen-centric products.

Given the scale and lifespan of government products, we prioritise clean code and maintainable systems. We bring modern engineering practices such as CI / CD, TDD, DevOps, and XP into the work we do.

We continually prototype and iterate, in order to build the right products and deliver the best experience for citizens.

We believe in a flat team structure, where everyone takes strong ownership of the work. We practise Agile, and each product team is self-managing, cross-functional, and empowered to move quickly.

We thrive off each other’s positivity and energy, constantly challenging one another to improve our craft.

What you’ll do day to day:
As a software engineer, you will:
  • Design scalable architectures
  • Write code that is clean and maintainable
  • Practice pair programming or code reviews (depending on team)
  • Write tests. Many teams practice Test Driven Development (TDD), and all teams have unit tests and integration tests
  • Work with a range of technologies. We choose languages and frameworks that best fit the product we’re building. Technologies we use include Node.js, TypeScript, React, React Native, Ruby on Rails, Golang and Kotlin
  • Tackle a wide variety of challenges across the technical stack
  • Participate in regular tech-sharing sessions and team retrospectives
  • You will also collaborate closely with the other members of the cross-functional team:
  • Work with designers to understand customer pain points, come up with solutions, and then continually prototype, test, and iterate
  • Work with DevOps practitioners to manage Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment (CI / CD) pipelines, to ensure fast feedback loops and seamless deployments
  • Work with Product Owners and Business Analysts to craft user stories by providing technical analysis
  • Work with the Scrum Master to build a positive team culture
How to succeed in the role:
  • Solid programming fundamentals
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Learning agility. Given the speed of change, a hunger for learning is essential
  • Team players with good communication skills
  • Have the desire to serve the public through the use of technology
  • A healthy discontent with the status quo, and an itch to improve things
  • The following are added advantages:
  • Degree or Diploma in Computer Science, Information Systems, Computer Engineering or related disciplines
  • Experience in modern application technology stacks
  • Familiarity with software engineering best practices
