Tech Team Lead

Job description

Property management gets a bad rap. There are some big, juicy problems that need to be solved to make things easier and fairer for everyone involved. In the time it takes you to read this job ad, 21 tenants will be approved giving property owners new tenants and property managers new relationships to manage. Application forms need to be processed, payments managed, maintenance done, inspections completed. How do we make this experience not only frictionless, but FUN, for everyone involved?

That’s why we’re here. Kolmeo is on a mission to revolutionise the industry and change the way people think about renting, owning and managing property. Since 2020, we’ve seen one BILLION dollars in payment transactions soar across our platform, while 469,417 workflows have been ticked off (our users are productivity obsessed!). And we’re JUST getting started.

The future is blindingly bright at Kolmeo. We’ve got BIG plans (and an abundant amount of resources to really change the game), but there’s just one thing missing: YOU. Will you accept this rose 🌹and join Kolmeo as OUR next Tech Team Lead?

Hey, before we hit the nitty gritty…

We know how painful it can be to endlessly scroll through job ads, hoping and praying to find something that’s the right fit. If you don’t tick all the boxes below, don’t let that hold you back from throwing your hat in the ring. Many women and other people in underrepresented groups don’t apply for jobs because of that, which breaks our hearts. At Kolmeo, we hire superstars in the making – so if this job ad speaks to you, be bold and hit apply!

So, here’s the low down.

As a Kolmean (that’s what we call our team members), you’ll have both a job title, like Tech Team Lead, and a squad. Together, you’ll tackle spicy challenges, like how to streamline payments between tenants and owners, for example. Or how to save property managers time in their day-to-day tasks using AI. You’ll have tasks that you’re responsible for on your own, as well as tasks you’ll contribute to as part of larger company-wide projects.

Our story

With more than 15 years of adventures in proptech, we’ve got the ‘inside scoop’ on what works… and what needs a little extra TLC. In fact, we were born out of a property management company, so we intimately understand the joys and sorrows of our customers (they’re at the heart of everything we do).

Kolmeo gives real estate agencies all around Australia access to the right tools and technology to perfectly balance the relationship between tenants, owners, and property managers. We believe in our heart of hearts that it's possible for people to truly love renting, owning and managing properties – it’s what gets us out of bed (that, and coffee), and why we love what we do.

Job requirements

Here’s what we’re looking for

Kolmeo is on the hunt for a Tech Team Lead to deliver high quality code and identify and manage areas of technical improvement within your squad. As a superstar within the Property Manager app team, you’ll work alongside the Head of Engineering to develop everyday tools to help property managers complete their tasks more efficiently while on-the-go, so we can support and develop Kolmeo’s property manager mobile experience

A day in the life of a Kolmeo Tech Team Lead

  • Lead a team of engineers and contribute to the hiring and retaining of new engineers as the business grows
  • Share your technical expertise with others, including training, support, coaching and contributing to technical forums
  • Work closely with QA team members to resolve issues raised by testing
  • Contribute and support a ‘DevOps’ mindset amongst the team, valuing end to end ownership of features and improvements, including the support and procurement of cloud infrastructure and pipelines
  • Assist your team, the product owners, business analysts and designers with the design, prototyping and preparation of software specifications and interaction design for product features

To hit this job out of the park, you MUST have:

  • Deep and thorough understanding of C# / .Net
  • Experience designing and managing complex distributed systems (i.e., microservices) including message-based communication
  • Fluent in applying software architecture/design patterns
  • Ability to effectively plan technical tasks, organise complex problems into small deployable units whilst providing good progress visibility to the rest of the team
  • Experience with infrastructure & DevOps

Your life isn’t set in stone, so why should work be, too?

We’re a team of over 100 strong property management specialists and tech-xperts based in Melbourne, working all around Australia. When it comes to where and how we work, ‘flexible’ is our middle name. So whether you’re a morning person, night owl or a school drop-off legend, we’ll empower you to manage your energy, not your time!

Perks (yep, we got ‘em)

  • Let’s get social: It’s cliché but yes, we work hard and play even harder. Jump on the team lunch train, clink glasses with your co-workers at pre-Friday drinks (Thursday night tipple, anyone?), strike pins at bowling, battle it out in a table tennis tournament, or simply sneak a cheeky donut (we’ve got a wicked sweet tooth). Got an idea? We’re ALL ears.
  • Recharge Days: Score a bonus day off every quarter because recharging is just as important as charging on with the work!
  • Learning and Development: Get access to online platforms to develop and boost your awesome skills.
  • Volunteer Day: Take a day off and give back to a charity that’s important for you, like the Foodbank Food Drive or Fundraising Morning Tea.
  • Genuine support: We’re proud to offer confidential counselling services for personal or work-related matters so you know you’re never alone.

Now that you know what we’ve got planned and how we’re approaching (re)building our Kolmeo, we’d love to hear from you. Drop into Beau’s inbox at with your questions, or if this role feels like fate, APPLY NOW!
