Who you are
You’re the proactive type who can spot a problem before anyone in the room, and you know just how to fix it. You take ownership over your projects and you wake up each day ready for a new challenge. You want to have influence over important decisions, and you aren’t afraid to take responsibility for your actions.
You have the technical skills and experience to meet our pre-requisites, can show where and how you have used these skills, and are mature enough to learn about Queue-it as part of your application to best show us how you will fit.

Who we are
We’re a high-growth technology company made up of vibrant, innovative people from all over the globe who believe in making the internet just a little fairer for everyone. We help some of the world’s biggest companies manage their busiest days, giving them peace of mind to deliver the online experience they’ve worked hard to create, no matter the demand. By providing online virtual waiting rooms, we take the burden off their websites, allowing them to keep things running smoothly while ensuring a fair, first-in-first-out waiting experience for literally billions of online visitors.
We've been in business for over a decade now, but we still maintain a strong startup culture. This creates an environment that fosters team spirit, encourages continuous collaboration, promotes constant knowledge sharing, and champions an agile approach to work.
While we’re headquartered in Copenhagen, we are a global team that represents 30+ nationalities. That means diversity and inclusion are major priorities for us. As part of the local AU team, you will be joining a new office/team build, and you’ll be an integral part of our growth across Australia and the wider Asia Pacific region.
You’ll play a key role in our continued growth by providing technical recommendations to our enterprise-level customers.

We work with retailers, ticketing organizations, governments, educational institutions, and everything in between, so you’ll get to tinker with simple and sophisticated set-ups alike.
Thanks to your efforts, our clients can offer a seamless user experience on even their highest traffic days, keeping their customers happy and making the internet just a little fairer for everyone.
We guarantee that no two days will be the same, so get ready to learn, explore, and grow at Queue-it.
