Front end developer

Cancer Council Australia is looking for a passionate front-end developer who’s excited by what technology can achieve and is up for a challenge. Someone who likes writing code that’s clean, concise, modular and reusable, using the latest FED tools and techniques. Someone that doesn’t blindly do tasks but works with their team to understand the why, while at the same time offering suggestions and improvements. A solid mid-level or senior Frontend Developer who's hungry to take what they've learnt to the next level.

Cancer Council has the number one cancer information site in Australia –  This is a great opportunity to work with a motivated team on an exciting redevelopment project to rebuild this site. 

We also have some of Australia’s most well recognised charity events; Daffodil Day, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, Girls Night In, Relay For Life, and Pink Ribbon Fundraising which you will be able to contribute to as part of this role.

To be successful, you should be a motivated and proactive developer who is comfortable working independently as well as part of a broader team to deliver a wide range of projects.

This role has three main priorities:

  1. Headless CMS Implementation:  Contribute to the implementation of a new Headless CMS (Kentico Kontent) with an initial web presentation layer for migration of the core site –  This includes creating code that consumes the data from Kentico Kontent via its API using a React static site generator.  Potential to explore other presentation layer opportunities for our content in the future (eg App, Voice, IoT, ChatBots etc).
  2. Component Library:  Develop and maintain a library of FED components that adhere to Cancer Council’s evolving core digital brand guidelines with the aim that they can be used interchangeably across various projects that will be migrated to the new CMS.   
  3. Support & Planning:  Support and planning for other web development projects across our various platforms.

As a NFP, we offer a competitive salary with generous salary sacrificing options and a real work/life balance.
