Sydney, NSW, Australia
Posted on Friday, June 21, 2024

Neara is a high-growth, venture-backed Series B, tech company headquartered in Sydney, Australia. Recognized as one of the Times 100 Most Influential Companies of 2024, our vision is to change how the world operates, build and designs critical infrastructure. We work with 75% of the utilities in Australia and New Zealand and are rapidly expanding across the US and Europe. Our mission is to revolutionise the utilities industry with our 3D digital network model, enabling utilities to future-proof their infrastructure and navigate the clean energy transition.

We are looking for a seasoned Tech Lead Manager, who excels in steering teams and is backed by a robust foundation in algorithms, data structures, SOLID principles, and object-oriented programming. Our ideal candidate thrives in a dual role - contributing individually while also dedicating time to mentorship, shaping junior engineers into accomplished professionals. As a key player, you will define optimal team structures, enforce best practices and delegate workload distribution to prevent burnouts, foster inter-department collaboration, and enhance overall organisational synchronicity. You will be a driving force behind technical strategy and innovation, working closely with product managers to align engineering efforts with business goals.

Our training is fast-paced, designed to enable you to work independently and confidently not only with the software but the wider company. At Neara, you will be part of a team that values your ideas, supports your development, and celebrates your successes. If you are motivated and results-driven, we’d like to meet you.

  • Develop algorithms to generate accurate models from imperfect data
  • Develop data structures that can perform in real-time with user interaction on large underlying data sets
  • Work with a variety of data sources, including LiDAR, aerial photography & photogrammetry,
  • Work on real-time collaboration & live update algorithms
  • Serve as a strong delivery role model and bring clarity to ambiguous projects
  • Lift the technical bar, and drive high quality engineering practices across the engineering department to ensure high-quality, correct code output,
  • Lead projects and mentor both junior and senior engineers in hybrid teams.
Some attributes we highly regard:
  • Algorithms and data structures
  • Proficient in JavaScript/TypeScript/HTML/CSS/SASS
  • Proficient in one of Python, Java, Kotlin, C++, Rust
  • Familiarity with Dartcode and FEA experience is highly desirable.
  • Domain experience within the geospatial/utility space is a plus.
  • Mathematical reasoning ability - Mechanical/Civil engineering knowledge a plus
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related field.
Some of the benefits we have on offer:
  • Competitive salary & meaningful ESOP
  • Fully flexible working arrangements with a well-stocked office in Redfern.
  • Regular office events
  • The real benefit is working on a genuinely complex, innovative and industry leading product making a genuine difference in the world around us.
