Why Pet Circle

Since we were founded in 2011, Pet Circle’s aim has been simple; to provide our community of loving pet parents with all of their pet needs, from the comfort of their own homes. We are a true specialist for everything ‘pet’ because we believe pets deserve better.

Fast forward ten years and today we support over 700,000 loyal customers with a better range, better price and better experience.

Our team is over 600 employees and we are a fast-growing leader in the Australian eCommerce space. We're also incredibly proud to be Australia’s largest online pet retailer.

About the role

At Pet Circle, we want to create a world where pets and their families are healthy, happy and spend more time together - and we are looking for fantastic people to help us do that!

Over the past ten years, we’ve scaled to become one of Australia's Top 5 eCommerce companies and the No.1 player in the Online Pet industry. We will accelerate our growth as we continue on our mission to disrupt the way that pet parents discover & shop for the products they love. 

The pet industry is booming (it’s a $15billion dollar industry!) and pets are holding bigger spaces in our hearts and homes than ever before. Online penetration of the pet industry is going to grow exponentially in the next 5 years. This is a unique opportunity in your career to be part of our exceptional growth story!

Founded and headquartered in Sydney, our team is now over 700 people strong and are based across Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines.

The Opportunity

Our Engineering team is based remotely across Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines. We're a growing company (700 team members and more joining every day!) with a lean development environment - we want people who are well rounded and think past the code to see the bigger picture. We celebrate our wins and we learn from our losses. You won’t be criticised for trying to make our product better.

You'll be familiar with how lean development teams operate, working with product managers, designers and other parts of our company to produce the best platform we can. There's no red tape to hold you back, or to hide behind. We like it that way.

Your key focus would be to write robust, high-quality code enhancing and improving our stack. You pride yourself on balancing architectural and design purity with practicalities (both business and technical). Supporting and challenging engineering peers, as well as reports will be important to help us reach our potential.
