Deswik are world leaders in a competitive market for technical mining applications – our software is used all day, every day in over 500 operations globally. As a Brisbane start-up turned major global player, we now have 12 offices around the world. Our software development hub remains here in Australia, with 90+ talented software development professionals working on complex and challenging problems to keep our sophisticated solutions at the forefront of the global market.

Preserving our authentic company culture and world-class work environment throughout our growth has been a key priority for our leaders. We are proud to be an employer of choice, offering our team a fun, relaxed and supportive workplace free from bureaucratic red tape. We are passionate about recruiting smart people, keeping them challenged and treating them like adults.

We are searching for a highly technical, hands-on Software Architect to join our growing software development team.

The role

We are delivering on our promise of “integrated mine planning” through a system that supports data and process integration across our suite of mine planning applications.   Building on our existing Mining Data Management product, Deswik.MDM, we are creating a portfolio of services that will allow us to support the most sophisticated mine planning workflows.

Reporting directly to the Head of Software Development, this role will see you:
  • Take on responsibility for the architectural direction of this system and play a significant hands-on role in its development
  • Work cooperatively with a variety of stakeholders, including software development teams, product managers, technical directors and support staff
  • Mentor and coach our software development teams towards an excellent implementation of the architecture
About you
  • You are a highly skilled Software Engineer with solid hands-on experience developing large-scale commercial software systems using the .NET stack
  • You have been responsible for a system designed around services and event-based architecture
  • You have experience using messaging as the main integration mechanism
  • You are probably currently in a role where you are responsible for developing production code, and where you are responsible for mentoring and coaching other developers in the implementation
What’s in it for you
  • Work/life balance – we believe in flexibility and striking a healthy balance between work and fun
  • Competitive remuneration + biannual bonuses + opportunities to obtain equity 
  • Supportive leaders dedicated to fostering positive a working environment for their teams
  • Be challenged in a dynamic role that will see you constantly learning and developing your skills
  • Work with highly technical subject matter
  • Access to the latest tools and technologies
  • We’re run by technical people who ‘get it’ when it comes to software product development – that means no red tape and lots of room for innovation
  • State of the art Brisbane CBD office with end of trip facilities, fully stocked kitchen/bar and awesome social spaces

Our culture

  • Our work environment is relaxed, social and fun
  • We are passionate, support each other, challenge the status quo and adapt quickly
  • We believe work should be fun, challenging and rewarding
  • We invest a lot in making Deswik a great place to work
  • We look after our people – we know that a happy and healthy team leads to a more productive work environment
