The Role

We are looking for a PHP Developer with experience using Laravel and Vue who would like to work on a modern codebase, growing a rewarding platform that aims to improve Surgical and patient outcomes through data.

SurgicalPerformance originated as a client of Niche Studio and has now grown to a point where it needs dedicated resources to flourish. You will be working as part of Niche’s team of producers, developers and designers, focussing on the continued development of the SurgicalPerformance system.

  • Job Type – The development role is flexible from 3-5 days per week, we are happy to tailor the role to fit.
  • Remote/Hybrid – You have a choice of working any combination of fully remote or in our office at Wynnum. Both Niche and SurgicalPerformance are located in Brisbane, so the ability to have occasional face to face catch ups is desirable.

About Surgical Performance

Our mission is to empower surgeons to track their procedures and complications with a view to improving patient outcomes. SurgicalPerformance was founded in 2009 by Professor Andreas Obermair, a gynaecological oncologist in active clinical practice, who identified an unmet personal need for his practice.

SurgicalPerfomance is a startup that has bootstrapped its growth from an MVP to a proven system for Gynaecologists and Obstetricians. It is now in a phase to grow across surgical specialties and regions.

About Niche

Niche Studio is an established Brisbane design & development agency. We have been building sites for over 20 years.

We are a team of 10 design and code nerds that create websites and web apps with delightful user experiences to make our clients more successful and productive. We build great web stuff.

We use best practices and processes, find the best technology fit, and create long-term success for our clients.

Working with us

We value our team, clients, and users. We believe in embracing differences and giving our team the freedom to do their best work where they see fit while feeling supported and included. By learning from each team member’s unique interests, experience, and expertise, we all grow.

About you

  • We are a tight-knit team. You are confident that your technical solutions are sustainable and can be supported by the team.
  • Experience working in an agency or freelancing is beneficial. Managing time among tasks is very important.
  • The SurgicalPerformance application is built using Laravel and Vue, along with a little Angular 2 and JSON Schema for forms. It encompasses data collection and analysis with reporting dashboards and external integrations with systems like Twilio and Stripe. PHP development is at SP’s core. You can wield PHP’s strengths — and navigate its weaknesses — to create great online experiences.
  • Experience with Laravel is crucial. You understand how this structured approach to development helps produce clean and maintainable code.
  • We will look at experience with a modern front-end JavaScript framework (Vue, React, Svelte) very favourably. We aren’t looking for someone who evangelises one framework. We are looking for someone who knows the fundamentals and is ready to use the right tool for the right job (even if it is sometimes jQuery!).
  • We use Ansible to provide managed hosting for sites we build. You are confident hacking away at a Linux shell to keep the lights on.
  • Our whole team wants to invest in you. Invest with their knowledge, passion, friendship, and the company’s money, of course.
  • Salary will be consummate with experience, and there is flexibility in work hours and a blend of work from home and the office. We all know there is more to life than work.
  • Experience to us isn’t measured in years. We want to know you have lived and breathed what we do and know your stuff.
  • We are looking for someone who cares about SurgicalPerfomrance’s mission and wants to grow with us.
