Front End Software Engineer

Front End Software Engineer

The Opportunity

As Balance Mat's Frontend Engineer, you’ll be imagining, architecting and building out our core data analytics platform. This platform will be used to:

  • Transform raw signals into 2D visualisations and scores
  • Be the cutting edge balance measurement system
  • Build datasets to inform the next generation of falls risk assessment.

The platform will revolutionise the falls prevention. This is a technology that will be used day-in-day out, and will become the new standard, maybe even a new unit of measurement.

To create this platform, you will be working directly with the Balance Mat engineering and product development teams. You will be empowered with a high level of autonomy to make thoughtful and pragmatic technology choices.

There is no dress code, no meetings that don’t make sense, and you set your own start and finish time.  We are very serious about creating paradigm shifting falls prevention tools, and as such have created a work environment where team members have minimal cognitive overhead with busy work that may take their minds off this mission.
